another day

Hello. I'm back. Hi everyone. I just needed to make myself a new cookie cutter to feel better. My husband sure is lucky, huh? No quick trip for large diamonds. (Although smaller jeans might do the trick some days...) I don't eat 1/2 gallon of ice cream in one sitting. (Although, I can, and have and I will tell you that did NOT feel good.)

I love the feeling of making myself a brand new cutter. It's shiny and, well, new and it holds endless possibilities. And usually I cut myself in the process so I get to remember my accomplishment for days. (Don't let that part scare you away from making your own cutters. I'm a "rusher." I rush everything. Sure, I should take it slow and calm and gently cut and file and shape, but hello! I'm in a bad mood, I want to feel better NOW! I didn't have time for patience.)

I really wanted a 5 petal flower cutter. And I really wanted the petals to be kind of pointed. And then after I had finished my cutter, I looked at it and realized I could have gotten the same cutter by gently re-bending a star cutter. A star cutter of which I already had an extra. But it wouldn't have been the same. I needed the love of a new cutter to make me feel better. Recycled love? Who wants that?

I deliberately chose these two colors. Somewhere in my head I thought it would be a good idea. Looking at these cookies, I'm a little confused as to WHY I thought that. And why I didn't catch the weirdness while mixing the two colors in bowls right next to each other.  And for the record, its not pink. Its CORAL. (Which may or may not be a shade of pink. But just for today, let's call it coral. Because we're all imaginary friends here, right?) My point here is that I feel better. And I'll see you all tomorrow.

Oh, and if you want to see how I made my cutter, CLICK HERE.

Nice! But I think my fear of sharp objects might prevent me from trying to make my own cutters. I love your humour too!

You are too funny. I actually like the coral and the green together. I also LOVE coral and aqua together. These are great and I'm glad you are feeling better.

OMG how super cute are they?! I love your ribbon also! Nothing like a cookie cutter to make a girl feel better (truth be told I'd rather a closet full of them over shoes anyday ;)
