Spring is in the air...

I just love spring and I've been ready for it since the day after Christmas! To keep myself busy while old man winter finishes his stay I've been busy making the cutest little Easter eggs. I've been obsessed with papier mache, glitter and vintage buttons and jewlery. Each egg has been handpainted a pretty pastel shade, drenched in clear glitter to give it tons of sparkle and then wrapped in a pretty bow and topped with paper roses.

These pretty little eggs can be found in my Etsy Shop along with a bunch of other goodies!

Make Mine Pink Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange

Welcome to the Make Mine Pink Blog
Christmas Cookie Exchange

What a great way to get a new Christmas cookie recipe! I can't wait to see what everyone has posted on their Blogs! I may just find myself some new favorites! I have so many favorites I didn't know which one to choose. So I decided to choose a couple! One of my favorites is from the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Comfort & Joy Book. If you love Gingerbread Men Cookies you'll love these. They are soft, chewy and without a doubt delicious!

Soft Ginger Cookies

What you'll need...

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup butter, softened (do not substitute)

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup molasses

2 tablespoons sugar (set aside)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat butter for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add egg and molasses; beat well. Add half the flour mixture; beat until combined. Stir in remaining flour mixture with a wooden spoon.

Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in 2 tablespoons sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet 2-inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown and puffed. Let cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

Makes about 36 cookies! Enjoy!

Feel free to post your favorite recipe in my comment section.

Happy Baking!

Chic n Shabby Fabric Rag Ball Ornaments

These fabric rag balls turned out so pretty! These kept me busy for a couple of days but I had so much fun making them. I think I need to make some extras for myself! Perfect for your shabby chic tree, wreath or to top off the perfect gift! Each one is covered in the shabbiest Mary Rose fabrics I could find and adorned with either a pink or white organza bow and white satin ribbon to hang them by. These are perfect for feather trees since they are soo light. You can find them on my website or in my Little Pink Boutique at Make Mine Pink. I have a few patterns available.

Be sure to stop by next week for our Cookie Exchange!!!

Tis' the Season to Glitter!

I'll admit it...I'm addicted to glitter! Over the past few months I've been creating a mess as well as some one of a kind Christmas goodies for my website. I just love the Shabby Christmas Chic look and I think I've accomplished it in my own little way! Everyone's vision of Shabby Chic is a little different and I think that's what makes it soo special. It casual and easy yet elegant! Shabby Christmas Chic can be anything vintage or new! I've created some really unique one of a kind goodies to share with all of you!

What kind of goodles have I created you ask?

Well I have some wreaths with vintage ornaments, Merry Christmas signs all decked out in glitter, decoupaged altered art boxes that can be filled with anything your little heart desires or left for display only and tons of ornaments. All kinds of ornaments shabby chic fabric rag balls, glittered bells and jingle bells, glass glittered balls, glittered paper mache birdhouses you name it! Feel free to stop by my website, ebay and my Little Pink Boutique! Each place has something different.
