Pressing Memories

I love having free time!  During Christmas, I found a cookie press used to make "spritz" cookies (never knew they were called that) in the clearance aisle at Wal-Mart.  I've always wanted one--and at such a great price, I couldn't pass it up.

My remember my mother always making spritz cookies, especially at Christmas.  I "found" this picture of a vintage cookie press--and I believe that is the same one my mother had!  It's amazing how certain memories years and years later never leave your head.  There was always little green Christmas "tree" cookies.  I loved them. 

So tonight, with my little helper at my side, we made Valentine's cookies!

I used one of my favorite antique bowls from my grandmother.  It's perfect for baking.  We made several different styles, but my favorite were the pink heart cookies :)

Before baking . . .

And after. . .  Now, I will have to distribute them to several places, because I cannot keep 8 dozen cookies in my house :)

Now--go do something you enjoy :)

Hey--It's me. I'm a simple, crafty, adventure loving wife and mom who loves to learn about almost anything. I enjoy the blogging community and love learning and growing from reading other's experiences. I became an RN (after being a teacher) and then realized I had lost the creative outlet of my classroom. I've always enjoyed arts and being creative, so I began sewing, smocking, soap making, and delving into other new hobbies! :) I live with my wonderful husband who is my best friend and our sweet little girl. Together we have entrusted our lives to Christ and His purposes. So through this blog, I invite you to walk along with me and my family through our daily adventures!
