New Romantic Book and Cookie Cutters

If you love magazines and books like I do, you may already know about Fifi O'Neill.  She's an author, a magazine publisher, and a wonderfully creative person!  Fifi teamed up with photographer Mark Lohman to write a book, "Romantic Prairie Style", which is now available on Amazon for Pre-Order.  You can go to my right-side column and use my Amazon box to jump right over to Amazon to place your pre-order.

I mentioned I'm working on some cookie cutter crafts.  One of my biggest challenges is to find all my cookie cutters.  I've collected them for over 20 years now and have them literally stashed all over my home. In boxes in my storage areas, in jars on my kitchen shelves, in bowls, boxes, on my vintage ironing board, hum I think there's some even in my jewelry boxes.  (More on that soon!)

Here's a few photos my hunt for my own cookie cutters:
(In crock on floor...)
(In the vintage BREAD box on chair in entryway...)
(In glass jars on my cookbook bookshelf...)
 (Yes, they are in these PINK vintage containers, too...)

(Currently on our kitchen table...)

(Above my kitchen cabinets in glass jars...)

(Old metal basket in my craft room....)

(On my vintage ironing board, yes it's the original cover; yes it has wooden legs...)
(Alphabet set on my kitchen counter...)

Now these are the cookie cutters the little ones and I used to make cookies just last week.  I asked John Mark what word he wanted to make and because we were just watching our little yellow finches on my deck he said, "BIRD".  So we pulled out the B I R D cutters and made cookies. 

For fun Ellie wanted to spell out her little sister/princess's name, Claira. Speaking of Princesses, the other day Ellie said to me, "Grandma Heidi, you were a princess when you were little, right?  And so was Jessica, right?"  It was so sweet!

 I think that's enough for you to look at for a while.  Don't forget to PRE-ORDER the new book!

Blessings, Heidi

The cookie queen should have lots and lots of cookie cutters! What fun to have a collection of them. Are there any that you'd like to find but never have? The book looks yummilicious!
Hugs for you~
