Best Sugar Cookie Glaze Ever

I did it - I won the battle of the glaze!  This recipe dries shiny and beautiful and hard in an hour.  I'm smitten.

2 1/2 C confectioners sugar (whisked)
2 T + 2 t milk
2 drops food coloring
2 T corn syrup (light)
*tip:  dip all cookies in one batch, the glaze hardens pretty fast.

Found these gems while cleaning off the old books in John's office.

Freeman Louis Mead

My new nephew.  About time I posted a photo.  When I'm with this little hunk, I'm too interested in touching him to find the time to snap a photo.  In fact, I can't even take credit for this one.  Although I think it is my favorite of him so far.

All Tuned Up and Ready to Sew

My parents generously offered to have my Grandma's old sewing machine serviced after she passed...4 weeks and a small fortune later I am back at it and feel so good about how well it is working (for the first time in 15 years really) I think I need to get back to my etsy shop a bit this year.  0 items for sale is lame.  Excited to change that.  These three are for some beautiful babies I am expecting to meet this winter.

"How did he know?!" Santaaaaaaaa!

Loved the faces of awe, joy, glee, sweetness, gratitude etc. this year.  

(some new favorites; an oak writing desk from Tookie and Grandpa, Kit Kittridge from Santa, Box of Balloons filled with $ from Meg and Kelcey, and Merry-Okee from Candi (Kelcey's Mom))

Candy Continuum

One of my favorite Holi-Days this year was our Gingerbread build.  A couple of fun friends, a table full of candy and Mom watching sugar highs in real time.  Think the continuum was well captured here.
