I made something I found on Pinterest!

Do you Pin?

I do.  I have over a thousand pins on my Pinterest boards.  Some are for inspiration, some are recipes, most are clever or crafty projects I want to make someday. When I have time :) 

If you Pin too, then you know exactly what I mean. So many little time.

Well, today I actually made something I found on Pinterest! I'm so proud of  me!

Check it out:

And I made a bunch:

Yesterday, I realized that I forgot to pick up or plan to make any Valentine's cards for the kids to exchange with their classmates.  When I asked the kids about it, they really didn't care. They are 13 and 10, and the whole love and hearts thing is kind of lame to them.  But I didn't want them to go to school empty handed, so I made cookies for them to hand out to the whole class. No risk of lovey-dovey crushy romantic implications, and everyone is happy. There's even some left over for us.

Here's the link to the Chocolate Sugar Cookie recipe and the decorating tutorial. 
(Note: I found the recipe for the chocolate sugar cookies to be very small and it only makes about a dozen cookies...I quadrupled it.  Also, it was too soft to work with so I added more icing sugar and more flour until the dough was able to be handled, and they were still yummy)

I challenge you...make something that you pinned, make it today!  It will feel good to cross at least one thing off of your pin board. 

And, Happy Valentine's Day!
