Little Lovebugs

I was honored when a friend asked me to make cookies for her daughter's 5th birthday. She pretty much gave me free reign to create what I wanted, using a few of her daughter's favorite colors. But my creativity was lacking this weekend, so I was having trouble coming up with something! Go figure, none of my cookie cutters appealed to me! After much consideration, I decided to repurpose one of my heart cutters, and make ladybugs out of it. I am too much of a perfectionist though, and didn't like how the ladybugs were looking so I kept messing with them. Sometimes, you should just leave things alone, you know?

Anyways, I was still unhappy with the ladybugs, so I decided to make them "lovebugs" instead, by making a few minor "detail adjustments". 

The close-ups make me nervous! I'm happy with the end result though, and hopefully you like them too!
Happy Birthday, C!!

Welcome to my (empty) blog! Obviously, I am new to the blogging world, and have tons to learn. The purpose of my blog is to showcase my success AND failures while learning to decorate sugar cookies. I am only human! :)  I think I'm okay at this cookie thing, but my ultimate goal is to be among the ranks of Sugarbelle, Haniela's, WhimsyCookie Crazie and all of my other cookie idols! They are all amazing cookie artists, each with their own style.

I'm hoping to post at least once per week, it just depends on the amount of cookie orders I have at that time! So please check back often! :)
