Try, try again.
Then try again and again and again until you get it right.
I find myself attempting things over and over again often failing. But something forces me to keep trying and eventually I succeed.
I know Christmas is over. I've been fighting with the grinches that chose to hack my blogs over the holidays and I didn't get a chance to post much between Christmas and New Years so I'm playing catch up. I must share because I FINALLY succeeded at something I've been attempting for literally years. I successfully made homemade decorated sugar cookies that looked and tasted halfway descent! I can't take 100% of the credit. My kids helped me, too, and they have turned out to be even better decorators than me.
