Oh @#*! Icing

*Warning if you are easily offended, stop now. I have definitely been reading my Amy Sedaris book. Come back tomorrow after my mom calls and threatens to wash my mouth out with soap, I will be back to my normal non-inflamitory self.When I was younger and first moved out on my own, I said a lot of badwords. I don't know if it was the thrill of being able to, or one of the hazards of my close proximity to a bunch of sailors … continue reading

Einstein Was Crazy, Right?

For those of you who think I am organized, or have that I have all my ducks in a row, I LOVE YOU, but its not true =( The real Callye is always behind. I am one of those gals who gets caught up in a vision, makes a huge mess and cleans it up Bernie cleans it up later. I never sit down, and I am always doing at least ten things at once, which is strange since I don’t believe in multi-tasking. Oh yes, and I also procrastinate in THE WORST … continue reading

Glorious Friends

Ever since I came across this adorable photo on my friend Glory's Flickr page, I have been dying to make cookie Valentines with my kids.  This is the photo that started it all...The problem was, even though I know my way around a cookie cutter, I'm not so patient great with paper crafts.  So, late last Sunday night I called Glory for a last-minute, one-on-one, how-to on making printables.Did I mention … continue reading

More GRRRRR-eat Valentine’s Ideas!

This idea belongs to my middle child.  Caleb is such a funny kid.  He like dinosaurs a LOT.  He might even be a little obsessed with them.  So, it wasn't any surprise that he picked dinosaur cookies for his Valentine's Day idea.For the first set, I went with the old faithfuls, dinosaurs as hearts.  These are always a hit.  I can't take credit for this idea, I think it was a Wilton thing once upon a … continue reading

I “WHEELIE” Like This Idea!

One of the joys of my new-found Twitter addiction is that I find cool stuff.  LOTS of cool stuff. Since joining, I find myself inspired almost as quickly as I can make cookies!Last week I stumbled upon these cuties, by Mique {Pronounced Mickey, like the mouse}, at Thirty Handmade Days. I KNEW immediately that I had to "COOKIE" them...So I did.  The boys were SOOOOOOOO excited, especially Evan because he got to help...Just … continue reading

Evan’s Great Idea {Spiderman Valentine’s Day Hearts}

4351996848_f589eb54b9_o1

I thought this would be a good week for Valentine cookie projects perfect for the kids. I would like to take credit for these cookies, but I really can't.  They were actually my little boy's idea. Last year around this time, I had a special Valentine's Day project in mind for his class, so I asked him what kind of cookie he'd like to take to school.  I was thinking lips or hearts...something along those lines.  However, as usual, ol' Evan … continue reading

Since We are on the Subject…

There are just some things that a KopyKake can't help you with.  I thought about this ALL day yesterday.  Generally, I try never to make character cookies if I can help it.  They are REALLY stressful.  But when family asks...well *sigh* it's hard to say no.Most characters aren't too too bad, but those Disney characters...well they are a doozie!I have been stressing about these for over a week and have been very … continue reading

Changing Gears…

Vintage1

I'll admit, I am a little behind.  I should have started Valentine's projects a week ago, but as usual, I got sidetracked! So, from here on out, that's what I will do.  Starting Monday I will begin lots of fun little projects, bake lots of cookies, introduce some new friends and recipes, and hopefully live a little life in between=) If you would like to learn how to make cookies like these, click HERE. Have a great weekend! … continue reading

KopyKake, ShmopyKake!

And now, for the rest of the story.  Back to talking about KopyKake projectors.  If you are making tons of cookies, get one NOW, if not, take notes.   It's actually very easy make perfect cookies with a minimal investment. I made both of the following cookie collections without the aid of a projector. To make perfect cookies like these, all you need are your computer, a printer, and a few supplies that are easily found at most craft supply … continue reading
