Made these for a family friend. It was a prize she won at my baby shower (a year and a half ago) and we finally found a time to make them happen.
She loves high heels so I incorporated that, and then used my new cutters to spell out her name. These alphabet cutters are so fun, I can’t wait to use them again!

Whoooooo is your valentine?
Sorry, had to.
But seriously. Owl be your Valentine.
Okay I’ll stop now. 🙂
I made these cute little love birds for Valentine’s Day. Kept it simple by having only 1 color of outline/detail, and just a couple other colors for them all.
I love the way they turned out! ❤

Each of these pictures I’m pairing the top I got in my StitchFix with these amaaaaazing maternity skinny jeans I got at H&M. They are my absolute favorite. I kinda wish I could just wear them everyday.
This first cardigan I absolutely LOVE. I was in need of something “outerwear” that was Navy blue and this is perfect. It’s not too thick but not too thin, and has this fun pattern on the inside. The sleeves were a tad long so I cuffed them out, and then realized that I think they’re supposed to be like that. This isn’t maternity but works perfectly over my maternity tops. Definitely keeping this.
This caridgan fit me a little funny. The sleeves seemed like they were too short. If I would have shifted to any other position they would have been about an inch or two from my wrist. The sweater is super thick so it would be great for winter, but I don’t like the “hairy” look of it. The colors and pattern are great though, and I love the way it drapes down the front. I didn’t keep it.
This top was technically not maternity, but fit over the bump because of the poncho style. I felt like it was super unflattering and just didn’t work for me. Not keeping.
This top is light and comfy. I prefer my maternity tops to be more form fitting, but it wasn’t too loose to make me feel like it was unflattering. And the back is SO SO cute! It’s perfect material for dressing up for a night out, or dressing down with my polka dot toms. Decided to keep this one.
My fifth item was a scarf, and I just don’t really do scarves. I let them keep sending them to me thinking if I like one of them enough I would try to make it happen, but every time I end up sending it back. After this time I decided to give up, and I changed my profile so they don’t send me scarves anymore. 🙂

These cookies, believe it or not, were for a man’s 60th birthday! I think they are just perfect for Valentine’s Day though!
I love doing cookies like this because I can do every single one different and unique and yet the whole set goes so well together. And it’s so fun to look at all the designs and try to pick a favorite!
These started out as a heart cookie cutter, and I just cut the tip off to make a nice round canvas. 🙂 And of course I had to do black and red because those are the “sexiest” colors!
I did all kinds of undies…
and some cute bras to go along with them…
The details are what really make them all so different. Dots and bows and ties…
These were so fun to make and I hope they inspire you to make something fun and naughty for Valentines Day too!

I made these cookies for Eli who turned 4 and had a bowling party.
I made the balls swirled just like the real ones at the bowling alley. They ended up looking totally 3D which was awesome!
Piping a perfect circle for the ball turned out to be harder than I thought. Especially since only half of the circle matched up with the outside of the cookie. After doing a few (and making many fixes) I decided to trace a circle cutter onto the cookie with a food color marker. It worked FABULOUSLY and saved me so much time and aggravation!
I filled in the ball as thinnly as I could with blue icing, then added the white to make the swirl.
Then I used a toothpick to “mix” the white into the blue and make the swirly effect,
For the red lines I used a thicker tip so that I could make wide flat lines on the pins.
I just love the way they turned out!
