I needed to create something physical…something Christmas related…something different, so I searched the house for items to make a craft project. Cookie cutter oranments was the final product. If you’d like to get a jump on the holiday season and create homemade Christmas decorations, here are the directions.
First I dug out some old cookie cutters from the cupboard and painted them.
(You could punch a hole in the top to make it hang, but I had drill issues, so I glued ties onto the top.)
Easy enough…paint, cut sheet of music into the cookie cutter shape, glue it and embellishments to the ornament. You can create your own, special, ornaments to make your Christmas homemade.
Ready to hang on the tree. Have fun!

Jewel Heist is a suspense story set during the holidays…
Diamonds used to be this girl’s best friend.
Jewelry designer Mary Keefe has been robbed–of a million dollars in diamonds belonging to her grandfather–by her own boyfriend, Conrad. Besides recovering the jewels, she’s got to conceive a baby within 5 days, to save her family’s legacy. Her friends have a plan, a singles cruise so Mary can find a sperm donor with the best qualities. The first mate could be the right choice–he rates a five on the Donor List. Then there’s John Wang, her neighbor in the adjoining room. Attraction sizzles between them and they’ve become friends, but he doesn’t act interested. Could be, she’s not his type.
For John Kajiyama, posing as Wang, Mary Keefe is just his type. She’s beautiful, funny and sweet…but is she innocent? Diamonds are missing and he must recover them for the insurance company. How far will he go to maintain his cover in this investigation?
