Cherish You

Mother’s Day 2017 brings attention to that mom who is fine and fancy,  who directed the movie that was your youth, made things feel just right and comfy.  Thanks for schooling us, Mom.  We cherish you.

Artistic Expression

Where does your mind go when it wanders? What do you think of when you take a walk, or are waiting for sleep, or are in the shower? I have a certain, um, inclination to think about cookie concepts.  I have often wondered if cookies are into me as much as I am into them.

This set started with someone saying a famous artist’s name just a little wrong.  My mind took it to “Vincent Van Goat” and the cookie set took on a life of it’s own.

Hands Down

So many interested stories to cookie.fy.  There were on a field trip to VA, far away from CO, when it happened.  Let’s just say it involved a nail, her daughter’s pointer and middle fingers, and the emergency room.  At least she is a lefty and the injuries were on the right hand… These cookies were a thank you to the administrator who took wonderful care of her, while keeping the parents appraised of the situation.  The daughter and caretaker missed the tour of Mt Vernon- thus the inclusion of President Washington.

Canteloupe? Um. They did!

They quietly became Mr. and Mrs. and held a small reception of immediate family and closest friends afterward.  Since her business is running a gym, their cookies had a few “gym dandy” word puns… Who could resist “Oh My Quad, they’re Married” or “And they Lifted happily ever after”????

From Miss to Mrs

It was a blush and gold bridal shower for Caroline.  It was easy peasy to send them their gift straight off of the registry but I wanted to come to the party with something in hand. A small cookie box was appropriate, I think!

In the beginning, there was only white/blush flood and gold…DSC_0133 (1).jpg

Then there were Killer Zebras stencils and Rainbow Dust edible ink pens….

Hoppy Easter 2017

A little late to the (cake) plate on this post but just love the umbrella cutter (still crushing on all things Killer Zebras).  I tweaked the original design to incorporate Easter bunnies.  If you haven’t noticed, I am in a geometric phase; bring on the structured rabbits. Hope you enjoy!
