Happy March

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, March 1, 2010

March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Right? Since my birthday is March 1st, I have always agreed with that saying.

And, not only do I get to celebrate my birthday this month, but I also get to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!!

I created this graphic for the frontpage of my website. I was pleased with the final product. I’m still practicing with Photoshop and sometimes I can’t always remember how to change the text. Usually Topher has to help me, but this time I figured it out on my own.

I decided to feature the leprechaun from my new St. Patrick’s Day collection. He’s so cute. Love the beard and his eyebrows. Irishman always have great eyebrows.

Here is a view of the full collection:

Did you notice the pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow? This is a stacked cookie. I made the rainbow on a rectangular cookie and then once it was dry, I stacked (using royal icing glue) the pot on top. I added a serious amount of gold sugar to pot to add some shimmer!

I hope this cookie collection will bring everyone lots of Irish luck! And, if you’re like me and your green beer drinkin’ days are over, cookies are an excellent way to toast St. Patrick!

Before I go, here is a big shout-out to my fellow Pisces: my husband, my aunt, my brother, and my brother-in-law. And, a very special hello to my newly discovered twin sister. Pisces are great! Go March!

Have a sweet day,
