Cookies and Monkies

They actually have something in common. They are both tutorials from Pinterest that I tried out this week. I could have just named this post Pinterest Tutorials, but where's the fun in that?

Cookies first.  I made these London Fog Cookies from Oleander and Palm.  They were soooo good! The dough was very soft and it was challenging to cut out the shapes and I was wondering how they would turn out. They came out of the oven beautiful. As soon as you take a bite, they melt in your mouth and mmmmm! This recipe is definitely a keeper.




Now we come to the monkey. This tutorial from Craft Passion was pretty easy. It had to be if I wanted to do it. The only thing was that I didn't have anymore stuffing so I had to improvise. I stuffed it with my dog Macy's hair so he's a little hairy. I've gotten reactions from "eww!" to "cool!"... He is a very special monkey and his name is Maxwell.
