You all know my daughter–in-law, Lauren.  This is her pretty momma, Amanda.  Amanda hosted a cookie decorating Christmas party for her daughter’s band mates.

Isn’t this a wonderful idea!  I told Amanda about the Craftsy/Blueprint cookie decorating classes and she learned how to do all this from those classes.  Before I took the classes, all I knew was to slab some store bought icing on top of the sugar cookies.  This is so much better and so fun to do.  She said they all had a super fun time!

Anytime I have the cookies and icing out, everybody that comes over dives right in and has a blast decorating them.   It’s worth the time to watch the classes.

Thank you Amanda for letting me share pictures of your beautiful cookies!

Happy Knitting and Merry Christmas!

Cranberry-Orange Cookies.

I want to share my family’s favorite cookie.  My son, John, has asked me for these for a Christmas present.   They are Ah-MAZE-ing!  You can find the recipe here: Pillsbury Cranberry-Orange Cookies

I don’t make these often because they are a bit of a pain.  You have to cut up those candied orange slices into tiny little pieces and that’s a sticky, somewhat difficult, task.  Very much worth it though!!   I save these for something special, like my son asking for them for any reason :-).

The little kids like helping because they get to snack on the orange slices as you cut them up.  Plus the frosting is fun to do too.

 

I wanted to share some Rodan and Fields pictures.   It really is such a great product.

Remember, this has a full money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your results.   If you want to try a product out and not invest so much money, I would recommend the eye cream, lip serum, or microdermabrasion paste.  You can try one of these products, which you will love, and then you can test the results on yourself.   Once you see how great these products work, you will feel confident in purchasing the other products.  The Active Hydration Serum is fantastic too!  You will see visible results after one application of that hydrating fountain of youth!

My mom has been using these products.   She complained a bit about it drying out her skin.    This is a very strong skin altering skin care regime.   When I first started the Reverse Regimen, my skin actually peeled a little bit.   At the time, I was going to a professional aesthetician, getting photo-lazer to treat my rosacea, and was told I had great results with the product.   It was doing what it was supposed to.  Your face adjusts to the products.  As your skin improves and the sun damaged is corrected, the products will feel great.   When I first used the product, I had to use it only once a day and work my way up to twice daily.
