Nina's Valentine cookies last year were truly beautiful! But - they weren't finished in time to post before Valentine's Day. We are always rushing to get things done, often inspired at the last moment and then there's the matter of taking photos. And some of us just have too many interests! Maybe we need to work a year ahead . . .

I love to create lots of variations and watch the designs evolve.
I usually make simple designs, too, like these sugar cookies.
The heart is one of my favorite shapes!

Nina created black and white ginger cookie mittens as a Christmas gift for the children on her list this year. She included edible markers to color them and complete the gift. 

With such cold weather all over the country (except in Southern California) the images are warming. Good job Nina!

Thanks for posting the cookies, Momsu. I used the wet-on-wet icing technique, and it was really fun to make the different patterns.
