On the 8th Day of Bloggy Christmas, Miss Lisa gave to me a Christmas Cookie Burlap Picture

hey! today's my turn for this special series!
but 1st lemme tell you how excited i am about being a part of 

are we gonna have fun or what?!!

anywho, i like making outta the box stuff and having fun tutes to go along with it. you really must visit me
i don't make the usual kinda posts you may be used to seeing. 
it's all about fun and silliness. :)

and speaking of fun, 
christmas is an awesome holiday as we all know and it makes me immediately think of COOKIES!

so i found a blank burlap picture at home goods and made this:

whoa nilly! that looks like a mess! 
and it is because you can use whatever you have in your craft stash and come up with your own designs or see what i did to get mine.

as you can see i painted the ornaments on the back side so the front would have a cleaner look.i had to improvise on the "s" since i already used 2 so i used 2 "c's" as shown. 
they really should give you more "s's" in an alphabet pack y'know?

ok let's move on.
 i didn't paint all the ornaments,
as you can see here for the "o's":
aren't those cookie stickers cool? i found them at michael's.
oopsies on the lopsided clothespin pics! it's what happens when you try to photograph on a windy day...

now that the ornaments were made and attached, the next thing i did was add more detail.
i got all my supplies at michael's awhile ago but check your craft store out as there are an abundant amount of christmas stickers and washi tape everywhere.

now for the last little detail:
that's where my 2 "s's" went to (for christmas)!

and so, when you put all this together, you finally get this:
hope you like the cookie picture. 
i used it for a cookie exchange party as a centerpiece and it looked awfully cute. then i hang it in my kitchen and get to baking away.

cuz aint nothin' better!

thanks SOOOO much again to Krista for having me! now let's get to cookin' some christmas cookies!


  1. very cute and creative. Such a perfect idea for a cookie exchange party

    1. thank you SO much Colleen! i always like 3-D multi media pics-it gives me an excuse to use up my overabundance of craft supplies! :>D

  2. Wow! Here we go again! A perfect storm of all that cool stuff - washi tape, stickers, baker's twine - you see at the craft stores and just gotta have - even though ya don't know what you'll be doing with it! - until you come HERE of course! I like that burlap background against the reds and greens! Very cute!

    1. oh J! you ALWAYS know what to say to make me smile! a perfect storm is pretty much a perfect way to describe my craft room! in some ways it's pretty much a hurricane in there though, especially with the holiday season-yikes! but once i see cute stickers that give me inspiration well, there is no turning me back :>O


here's wishing for a stuffed comment box... :>D
