I’ve seen Lorena Barrezueta around for a while now, but just stumbled upon her etsy shop again today.
I am so in love with her pieces. They are just perfect for a not so fancy girl like me. Check her out.
Still working out the kinks with the new setup, but I hope you like the new look. As I learn more, I’m sure there will be big improvements.
Let me know what you think!
I just saw this over on Treehugger. I joke with Mark that he has a CFL addiction (he buys one EVERY single time we go to a store that sells them). This would be perfect for him :)
I found a website of a company that does beautiful garland work for parties, events and weddings (can’t find the website to save my life right now. if you know, please send it my way!) However, I did save these pictures…
I’ve made dinky garlands before, but these installations are beautiful. I’ve gotta find an occasion to try this out. Ok, who am I kidding. I need no occasion, I would cover ever ceiling in my house if Mark would let me. :)
They were pretty easy to use. I used premade chocolate chip cookie dough. You want to make sure the cookies are big enough for the mold, but not too big so you get the most out of your dough. Actually, now that I think of it, you could not even worry with dividing it out. Just fill the whole cookie sheet and stamp out of that. You’ll have extra cooked cookie leftover…just put that in a bowl and feed to your husband or boyfriend :)
After you cut them out, let them cool all the way off so they’re harder and easier to work with. You put one half of the cookie into the mold, a scoop of ice cream, then another cookie.
And there you have it! The cutest little ice cream sandwiches ever. I’d recommend using a different type cookie as it was hard to see the cow and pig face in the chocolate chip…but they were delicious!
