Fourth of July Cookies!

I have been waiting and waiting to show you these cookies.

WAITING!!!!
(I'm not good at waiting)
(not even a little)

But I finally said....That's it!!!
I'm not waiting anymore!


YAY!!!!!!

Here they are!!!

Happy Summer!!!

Right before Memorial Day I spotted these fabulous printables 
by Amy at Living Locurto.

Aren't they Beautiful!

She made them especially for members of her site.

As soon as I saw them I couldn't start mixing colors fast enough.




I was happy and smiling the whole time I made these.




The colors are perfect.
The touch of pale green makes the red even redder.




Love the font.
...and the cute little flowers.




I added a little blue bird of happiness...




'cause they made me happy.
(I don't think Amy will mind...)

I hope you like them too!




YAY!!!

(oh my goodness, I'm so happy I don't have to wait anymore...whew!)

Here are some more fun summer cookies to peek at!

4th of July Cookies!

Last year Miss Callye of Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle 
asked me to be a part of her star cookie project.

This has been one of my very favorite projects so I thought I'd repost it today.

Enjoy!
There's lots of links on the bottom to all kinds of fabulous cookies!

One of the first pretty food pictures I can remember seeing
was Martha Stewart's berry tart.  

It was a long rectangular tart with red and blue berries and white filling, 
arranged to look just like the American Flag.




I distinctly remember seeing it on the cover of her magazine, thinking....someday.

Not someday as in....'Oh I really want to eat that!!!'
(I have strong feelings about fruit showing up in my dessert...)

But someday as in...'hmmm, I wonder....'



I wonder...'could I make something that gorgeous?'

I wonder...'could I take a picture like that?'



I wonder....








Almost two years ago I found a blog that would inspire me the same way.


 full of the most amazing cookies with perfect instructions and tutorials, AND

written by such a lovely lady, Miss Callye.




I started having those moments again...




I wonder....









About ten days ago I got an email...

from Miss Callye, Sugarbelle, herself.

(While I had emailed back and forth with her before, 
I still do a little happy dance when I see her name in my inbox.)



It was an invitation to sit with the cool girls at lunch.

(AAAAHHHHHHH!)



Callye was working on a post involving her favorite bloggers 

(again....AAAHHHH) 

showing all the different ways we could use a simple star cookie cutter,

for the 4th of July.....




I wonder.....







I could say that I took days to decide what to make, but I didn't.

I knew immediately.




It had to be an arrangement of cookies that looked like the American Flag.









"I pledge allegiance to the flag...











of the United States of America...










and to the Republic for which it stands...












one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.












Thanks Miss Callye, for the invitation to sit at the cool kids table,

and thanks as well to all the other bakers invited to the party.

You've all inspired me to be a better decorator and writer.






So....would you like to see everyone's work???
