Hi Friends,

I’m April

Would you believe me if I told you I had never made a cut-out sugar cookie before winter of 2014? It’s true! After having our youngest, Miss Scarlett, I set my sights on making her Christmas the best Christmas EVER! In my true Leo, type A personality fashion, that meant attempting to master something I had never tried before: decorated sugar cookies. Spoiler alert: My first few attempts were epic fails, but I didn’t give up!
