Baseball Baby Shower

This little slugger is rounding third base and heading for home.  Always a “hit” to welcome a new baby boy and this baby shower was a sweet nod to his dad’s love of baseball! Used my favorite onsie cutter is from Kaleida Cuts and “baby” cutter from Bobbi’s Cutters on Etsy!

Tropical wedding

Sandy and Adam are great adventurers so it makes complete sense that their wedding would be in a lush, exotic tropical setting. For their bridal shower, I thought of dreamy, soft watercolors accented by their silver rings.  The silver was from TMP and the watercolor was various mixings of Americolor‘s moss, leaf and forest green, and ivory with water.

Bring the Bling

For a happy engagement party, add cookies to bring the bling.  Okay, I get it; the RING is the bling. Still, I can’t help but put my own sweet spin on bRINGing the bling.  Shine on, you crazy couple!deepikaengagement.jpg

This Elf is not on a Shelf

I will eat them in a box. I will eat them while in my socks. They are so good, so good, you see. I will eat them by the Christmas tree. I will eat them here and there. I will eat cookies anywhere.  This elf has certainly left the shelf. So you know where to sit your self.

The sweetest Christmas Eve dinner place cards you’ll ever find.

Cookie cutter from the wonderful KaleidaCuts!

I’m Bringing Rexy Back

T-Rexy.  T-riffic. Beau-T-ful.  I’m putting some creativi-T into these dinosaur cookies, inspired by the lovely art of Jane Van Der Karr and of Tiny Tudor Cookies.  Current infatuation is the look of wet-on-wet technique highlighted by edible ink pens (try Teri’s awesome fine tip pens over at TweetsCookieConnection !!!). Classic and classy.  Make love, not Roar.

She said OUI!

Such a romantic.  He took her on a trip to Paris and, in the most lovely of settings complete with music, he asked her to marry him.  Je t’adorABLE!!!  At the celebration back home, cookies were served. Paris puns predicted??? Oui indeed.  Here is a sampling from the set (yep, I neglected to get photos of the whole bunch before they went out the door. Oops.):

Stars and Stripes

These little beauties made their way to near.and.dear military folk(s) in Afghanistan.  Starting in 2001, this longest of US wars is at 18 years and counting.  My many thanks to those who serve as they are asked. Come home safely.

LobstAH

Ahhhhh.  Maine in the summer.  Truly a slice of heaven on earth.  Friends invited us up for a concert, good company, and a traditional lobster dinner! I had to think of something CLAWsome to bring with us and here is the resulting gift box.  Please forgive the misspelling of buoy.  Didn’t catch my error until we were already on our way.  Still , they are cookies… they put their indignation aside.
