Six Days of Christmas, Post Five!

On the 6th day of Christmas......

Lisa-Me, Diana and Joan!The 6th day of Christmas was spent celebrating the essence of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the North Pole, Bake Shoppe Tradition and Artsing w/Friends.
Me and Diana w/the Cookies!
Diana's Cookie!As Christmas approaches, I still haven't felt like its truly Christmas Time, yes I have the house decorated with Holiday Cheer, Hosted a Holiday Workshop and Did the Holiday Shopping...But I was missing some of the spirit and it came to me full force when Diana and My Mom came over to bring it.The Un-Frosted Cookies!The Sugary Embellishments!
We decided on a Christmas Cookie and Art Party at my house, starting at Noon and going til 10pm. We ordered lunch, baked cookies, sang to the holiday tunes and made a holiday doll/ornament dedicated to Rudolph or Mrs. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeerette...Reindeer Soiree! 4

I couldn't resist, I had to bring out the Crown cookie cutter for a few crown cookie shapes. While they were baking we started our doll project. Reindeer Soiree! 2
I pre-sewed the doll dresses in advance to save on time and took step by step photos so that you too could make them at anytime. They are very simple to make and are an updated version of my popular papier puppen dolls from a few years ago, this time they are more poofy and have rounded dresses.

In between doll making, I mixed up a batch of my chocolate chip cookies, made some with almonds, pecans, toffee and coconut too, they came out soooo good. I am a coconut lover and anything with fresh coconut in it, makes me happy. The whole house smelled like a bakery, lol.
