    Good morning dear fans!

    I’m feeling all wispy and romantic at this Spring beginning, how about you?

    And it’s almost Easter, can you believe it?

    For this month’s printable I collaborated with a very wise bunny who insisted on flowery eggs and a pair of chirping birdies to bring you two Easter prints.

    Both prints measure 8 by 10 inches, you could frame them above your mantel or even use as part of your wreath.

    Don’t forget the Easter tags free printable created last year for The Twinery Design Team.

    Good morning dear fans!

    I was a bit under the weather over the weekend so this week’s inspiration post comes a day late, but still in time for a cheerfully green St. Patrick day celebration :)

    This idea of luck elixir in fun colored vintage bottles seems is a fun way to decorate for Spring, add a  bit of airiness and freshness to your indoors.

    What would St. Patty’s be without green yummies right? I love this ombre cake from I am baker, and these free printable toppers  from Allen Designs are to die for.

    I am a chocolate girl through and through so when a coworker brought these little babies in I gasped at the chocolaty richness of this humble cookie.

    The simplicity  is refreshing after all the cut out cookies, you just mix, scoop, dip and roll.

  9. Holiday baking: Sugar Cookies

    Sugar cookies are a must in our house. This year, I did not have time to put icing on them at all so we just “decorated” with different Christmas themed sprinkles prior to baking. The little one had a blast and there was sugar everywhere :)

    There are many sugar cookie recipes out there but the one from Sweetopia works really well for me. Both Sweetopia and Sugarbelle have amazingly helpful decorating tips.

  10. Holiday baking: Almond Linzer cookies

    December 20, 2011 by ivona


    We had a hectic weekend of baking at our house. This year I decided to combine two of my favorite cookie recipes with two new ones for our holiday cookie tins.

    I give these out to coworkers, friends and so on.

    These linzer cookies were one of the two new recipes I wanted to try. I purchased the Wilton Lizer Cookie Cutters a while back but didn’t have a chance to try them out until now.

    This recipe from Real Simple worked great and the cookie dough was really easy to work with. The only thing I would change for next time: I don’t think I will toast the almonds next time, they make the almond flavor overpowering.

    For a full recipe click here.

    I decked out our holiday tins with tags from our Gingerbread Man Free Printable set here.
