Monday Made-It

This is my first Monday Made-It with Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics of the summer.  At the beginning of May, I decided it was time to start a hobby.  Believe it or not, the only hobby I had was blogging! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE blogging! But...I have always wanted to make & design those precious sugar cookies.  I started on Pinterest first and searched for ideas on how to begin.  I watched tons of You Tube videos and stalked a lot of cookie blogs.  I was determined to make my own fancy cookies with royal icing.  I shopped at Michaels and bought all my supplies (Michaels gives teachers an additional 15% off of your total purchase!).  As of today, I have tried 3 different sugar cookie and 2 royal icing recipes.  I FINALLY found the recipes that work for me.  I am in total shock and awe at how I am doing with making cookies!  To this date, I have sold 5 dozen of cookies and made 2 cookie bouquets.  I have an appointment with a hair salon tomorrow for a cookie order and I have a cookie bouquet I need to make for Friday! My little hobby is awesome!  I am surprised at how much I have learned in such a short amount of time!  I love making and decorating cookies!  Who knew?!
 
So...I am linking up with Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics for a personal Monday Made It!  I hope to link up lots this summer with school and personal crafts!
