I dabbled with a few stamped jewelry designs recently. One of them was very popular at local shows and open houses. It's the perfect necklace for a graduate and has been featured in 15 Etsy treasuries in the past couple of days! Who knew that a 2011 stamped necklace could be so popular! I'm so flattered by all of the fellow Etsians that have featured my necklace!
Wishing you a year filled with peace, love, good health and adventure! Happy New Year!

I thought I'd post just in case you were still looking for cookies to bake this season. These are easy and oh so good! I like that I can make the dough a day before. I make these throughout the year ~ they're too good to make only at the holidays.
1 c unsweetened cocoa powder
2 c white sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 t vanilla extract
2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 c powdered sugar
In a medium bowl mix together cocoa, white sugar and oil. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough and chill for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Coat each ball in powdered sugar and place onto prepared sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheet for a minute or two before transfering to racks to cool.
