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.

Denver’s Finest

Denver has a very grateful and satisfied neighborhood.  They have a police officer (several actually) that are watching over them carefully and interacting with purpose.  And the residents have noticed.  These cookies were part of a set that was sent to District 2 as a thank you.

Dog Portraits

This custom cookie biz is never boring.  It involves some interesting themes. For this batch I was given some photos of dogs with their owners and asked to make portrait cookies.  Of the dogs. I am not an actual artist in the classic painting sense.  People and their faces scare me. Need to take a class on that one.  Okay, more than one class.  In the meanwhile, I’ll stick to our furry friends.

Thank You for your Service

If you follow this blog, you know that I volunteer for Operation Cookie Takeover. We send treats to military folks serving overseas.  I was assigned a Marine for this current (Veterans day) round of cookies. We don’t know where they are stationed but we do find out their battalion.  Therefore, I can always include specifics as to their motto and crest.  Here was that set.

Semper Fidelis

Operation Cookie Takeover was started in early 2013 by a group of cookiers who wanted to show support for a friend deployed overseas. The initial concept was to have a small group of cookie decorators send a dozen cookies each, to be passed out among some of the soldiers on base. Thanks to SammieBSweets initiative, many, many cookie decorators have joined in; here is my small but heartfelt thanks to our service men and women.  In particular, this 2016 cookie set went out to a wonderful Marine in the 2/7.  ~Thank you for your service!! I hope the cookies found you safe and sound.~

A Big Deal

It’s a BIG DEAL when friends that you play cards with are such fun and so appreciated! Here’s a nice way to let a couple know that they are the king and queen of the card group.  A sweet way for the client to say thank you? Yep, ACE’d it.

Sweeten the Deal

This set of cookies went out as a thank you to a mortgage company.  Several were personalized using the names of the employees and the rest were a ‘calculated risk.’ mortgage wmDSC_0142
