Christmas movies, stars and cookies

Is it possible to pick only one Christmas movie as your favorite? It's not possible for me! Today's Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound is all about your favorite Christmas movie. Here are just a few of my all time favorites! Home Alone, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Love them all plus many more! Now I want to watch them all! Thinking of all these Christmas movies has really put me in the Christmas Spirit, even more than I already was. Part of being in the spirit for me is crafting and creating. I saw these super cute stars at the Dollar Tree, and knew I could do something with them. Don't get me wrong, these are super cute the way they are, but I wanted something a little more me!
I did a little searching and got my inspiration for them from My So Called Junky Life. I painted one white and one aqua. I distressed both of them and added white snow covered roses to the aqua one and pink snow covered roses to the white one. Pink, white and aqua ribbon added the final touch.
I am a sucker for stars, roses and the colors pink, white and aqua!
They hang on either side of my white shabby mirror. I like them so much, I will probably not want to take them down after Christmas!
Tomorrow is our town's Christmas Parade and tree lighting ceremony. They are also holding a cookie baking contest. I decided that this year I would enter it. I wanted to make a delicious cookie that looked good, tasted good and made you really think of Christmas when you ate it. So Chocolate Chip Candy Cane Cookies it is! They taste so good! Just the right amount of peppermint flavor to go with the yummy chocolate dough and chocolate chips. I used soft peppermint sticks so the candy canes are so smooth and creamy!
I don't know what the prize is for winning, but I think I have a really good chance! Cross your fingers for me!!
