Go Cards!

I'm so happy I was asked to make these baseball cookies for a friend! I had been meaning to get around to some opening day cookies, but that never happened. I love the way these turned out!

 Each of the birthday boy's friends got to take home a personalized baseball cookie.

Happy Birthday, Colton!

Cookie Box! (Finally!)

I finally did it! Around Christmas, I thought it would be adorable to make a gift shaped box or two to place mini cookies in for our family party. I failed miserably. And again a few times after that. I had a vendor fair last weekend, so I decided to give it one last shot before completely throwing in the towel, and it worked! I don't know what I did differently other than not using cookie cutters to cut out the squares, I guess that did the trick because it fit together perfectly. The entire thing is 100% edible!

I am completely in love with the entire thing!

Here it is all wrapped up and ready to go out to someone who also fell in love with it!

Under the Sea

A friend of mine got in touch with me and asked if I could make some cookies for her son's birthday party based on a cake that she had found. She wanted squids and jellyfish, not a problem, but I had to make them "not too cutesy" since Brice was turning 13. This was a tad tricky for me since I have had basically no contact with 13 year old boys since I was the same age. And even then, I had no clue what they might have been thinking! I loved the way they turned out though, and they were a big hit!

Bird's Party Feature!

The latest step on my path to making a splash in the cookie world, my cookies were featured in Bird's Party Magazine! The talented Christie from Flaired Affairs styled a beautiful  Maypole in the Garden party and she was sweet enough to include me!

How fun does this party look? I love the soft pastels and flowers everywhere! It was a little hard trying to design a fun, springy look back in cold and gloomy January, but I think everything came together perfectly.

This has definitely been one of my favorite and most well received designs to date and I'm so happy to be able to finally share the complete package with everyone!

Make sure you check out the magazine available for online viewing and in print!

Easter Part 2

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I love getting to spend time with my extended family and the weather was perfect! I finished up all of my cookies just in the nick of time and wanted to shared them with you before I get started on a very busy week!

These were requested by someone who loved my Bird's Party design as much as I do. But of course, they needed to be modified just a bit to give them a really Easter-y feel. 

And this platter, I created for my family's get together. I'm glad I got these pictures when I did, they disappeared very quickly!

My #1 cookie taster and my grandpa, they both gave the cookies a thumbs up!
