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.
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.
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.
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.
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”????
Oh no I didn’t. Yes WHEY, I did! This order was for a newly married couple who met at the gym and were both into power lifting. The client gave me free rein with design and so I LUNGED into the puns. Never been so dead (lift) serious in my life.
My niece was trying to decide on the theme for her November baby shower. She was wavering between “Lil Pumpkin” and “Sweet as Pie”; well, why not both? Orange streamers and little baby pumpkins were strewn like confetti around house. Pies from her favorite local pie baker, Mom’s Apple Pie (boy, were they scrumptious), were the centerpieces of the dessert table. And, of course, there were as many MMB cookies as I could carry on the plane. (Seriously, the DIA security folks don’t even bat an eye at my copious amounts of cookies anymore.) Here are some of the cookies that were plated for the dessert table. (Kaleida Cuts for the win on the wonkie onesie cookie cutter).
And these bad boys were bagged and tagged for the favors. (yep, it’s a boy…)
