eCLIPse ART

Cookies for a party celebrating the “totality” of this solar eclipse! It is a happy set of coincidences that allows us to experience this event. The diameter of Earth’s moon is about 400 times smaller than the diameter of the sun, but it’s also about 400 times closer to us here on Earth (as compared to the distance to the sun). Poof.  The magic of a total eclipse happens. But the moon is slowly moving away from the earth so in , say, 600 million years, the moon will no longer totally cover the sun and earthlings will not be able to see a total eclipse.

Never let a good word play go un-expressed…

Army Strong

Another cookie set sent to the troops abroad.  Although I do not know the young man who will receive these cookies, I hope he feels my/our support.

I air brushed a just baked cookie with three colors, ivory, forest green, yellow- shown here (sorry about the out of focus picture). Then I used a 20 second stiff icing to outline the perimeter and word.  Flooded w 10 second icing and, while still wet, placed little starts from a Texan Sprinkles mix for the just right bling.

You’re so Fly

Several times a year I send cookies to service members serving abroad.  This batch made their way to a young man in the Air Force. My thanks in word and cookie.

For Shore I am Grateful

So I just got a little education about the New Jersey shoreline.  Never knew about Long Beach Island before this summer and boy, was I missing out.  I also learned the “Don’t Give Up the Ship” story, as this flag flies at the host’s house. …thought about using more word play but one has to draw the line in the sand somewhere.

Harry Potter Baby Shower

There are a lot of us out there who adore Harry Potter and his magical world.  This expectant mom is especially inclined toward Gryffindor colors. Soon, this new little muggle will be snuggled and celebrate making his or her own magic in the world.
