Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED “I am Leese” turned “Making it Sweet” blog!!

I’ve been wanting to change the format of my blog for quite a while and have been working on this in between projects. There are still some buggy things I need to fix, but other than that, it’s mostly complete! Please excuse some technical issues as I play around with the layouts and such.

I’ve been rather busy lately with work and side projects. Side projects such as…. COOKIES! Yes, I’ve been making a lot of sugar cookies lately. So here’s the latest:

Castle Cookies

I apologize for the grainy/fuzzy pic. One day I’ll learn how to use my DSLR to its full potential. These are castle and princess wand cookies for a 3 year old birthday party. They were fun to do since I don’t get to make “girly” stuff too often. Yes, I have girls of my own but aside from the cupcakery house I made, they’re more into robots and worms right now.

To celebrate my new blog…

I’m giving away ONE DOZEN custom sugar cookies to one lucky winner within the Continental US! Just leave a comment below and a way for me to contact you and tell me how you “make things sweet!” For example… Are you a crafty person who likes to make handmade-gifts for friends? Do you often volunteer for a charity? Are you an artist or musician? Are you a parent who’s making sure your family is safe, healthy and happy? Tell me about it!

A winner will be chosen at random on May 25th, 2010.

So, now that I have this new blog up, I guess I need to post more often, right?! I’m crossing my fingers that I can do it. I do plan to put more tutorials and patterns on here. Plus I’d like to feature the “sweet stuff” that YOU do!
