Looking to stretch your techniques?   Want something different?  Check out a well stocked magazine area — like at Barns&Noble book store   Check our magazines on wood carving, glass patterns, one called “Ornament; art&craft of personal adornment” & even card making & quilting   Think “how can I make this design in fondant “ or can I pipe that look?                                     The other thing I do is scout the library—even the kids section — for all kinds of craft & art books   You never know what will jump out at you:)    The design on a balloon or greeting card can be turned into one of your best cake!

I love finding unique cards to turn in to cookies. Especially ones that really challenge me to do intricate piping techniques. During Christmas my husband gets mad because I buy cards just for that reason.....I send them the following year lol

I am blessed to live in a tiny, artist conclave and my neighbors make the most elaborate, gorgeous greeting cards that I've ever seen.  I take inspiration from their designs.
