Cookie Journey~Day 3 and a Giveaway!

It is Day 3 of my Cookie Journey. Yesterday I decorated a couple heart shaped cookies. They did not turn out as nice as I wanted them to. But today I took some of the heart cookies, applied the frosting again, with a steadier hand and they turned out pretty good.
This is what I started with. I did the exact thing that I posted yesterday,
but my hand was steadier.
Years ago, I took a folk art painting class. The instructor
taught the basic little touches you could do to
decorate wood pieces. One of the things I learned was to
 make a heart that was simple and cute. I used the same thing
on the heart cookies, only I used frosting.
With my bag of frosting, I piped 2 dots  right next to each other.
They are barely touching. I used a Wilton #2 tip.
With a very small tipped paintbrush,
that I only use for cookies, I pulled the frosting down from
the left side dot. I pulled it to where it would eventually end up
at the bottom of the heart.
Then I pulled the other side down until the heart was formed. 
They turned out fairly well. A few of the hearts have tiny
globs of icing at the tip of the heart. I need to work on that!
This is not the best picture, but I went around the outline of the 
small heart with my frosting bag and the same #2 tip.
I just piped little dots, trying to even space them all the way around.
I am happy with this one. The dots did not get any little points on them,
which I was glad about. The consistency on the icing must have been
right because they were really great dots!
Thanks for stopping by for Day 3 of my
Cookie Journey!
