Let's Go Skiing - With Penguins

I made some skiing penguin cookies - just because. My favorite kind of cookies are "just because" cookies :-) I have so many ideas rattling around in my head of cookies that I want to make. I had a lot of fun with these.

 Aren't these so fun!
 Can you tell Mellissa is happy being a mommy?
 Since we made skiing penguin cookies, we just had to go up to the snow. Here's hubby with little Abigail. He adores her. The feeling is mutual until grandpa coughs or makes a loud sound that startles her ;-)
 and here's little Abigail in her snow suit. Honest she's in there - somewhere ;-)
Makes me want to go back up to the snow...
 Have a fun day today!

Rain, Rain Go Away, Come Again Another Day

My son is away at college in a state that is known for a lot of rain. He loves the rain and cold weather. His mom doesn't like the rain so much. As a cyclist, I like sunny days. When Nick comes home for the summer, he will have to get used to our beautiful California days. Poor him. Ha ha. My daughter set up my phone so that it shows me weather here and weather where my son is. All those rainy days made me want to make rain cookies. I had SO much FUN with these! I really loved them.

I started with this cute ducky playing in the rain puddles. I named him Dudley. Mellissa says he shouldn't be named Dudley since he's wearing a pink coat. Want to know my response? "Baby girl as soon as you work very hard and make your very own cookie cutter, I promise you can name it whatever you would like" ;-) so there. DUDLEY the Ducky is adorable. The cute Dudley cookie cutter is available HERE.
To copy the design, download the tutorial cards at the link above (highlighted in yellow).

Umbrella, cookie cutter available HERE

and I just love these rain boots with the rough bottom, cookie cutter available HERE

Then I made this cloud cookie cutter. But Mellissa says the cloud can't be pretty fluffy white, it has to be grey. Cookie cutter available HERE
 So just for the bossy girl... ;-)
and rain drops, cookie cutter available HERE

and I figured that I needed a lightning bolt for my rainy day cookies. Cookie cutter available HERE

and you know a cute little bear jumping in the rain puddles. I named her Petunia. Cookie cutter available HERE

 and I added disco dust to the rain puddles. Doesn't that look like wet rain puddles. I love it.
After all that rain, the sun comes out. I love this fun sun cookie cutter, available HERE

and with the sun and rain, comes a rainbow WITH a pot of gold of course, cookie cutter available HERE

and maybe even a shooting star, cookie cutter available HERE

and then some fun matching combos

Abigail likes her new outfit that says Grandma's Sweetie :-)

So I made lots of fun making rainy day cookies
Thank you to Maree Truelove Etsy Shop for making this adorable rainy day clipart used to make the blog background and also to Amy from Happy Heart Studios for making the fun rainy day digital papers used to make the blog background today.

I hope if it's raining where you are, that you are playing inside making rainy day cookies ;-)
