Some people who are near and dear to me are/were teachers so I have a special place in my heart of those who guide us toward critical thinking. My 2017 gift box for the classroom teacher is right/write track.
And it all adds up for cookies that are calculated to make the math teacher smile….
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 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.
A little attention to detail and some puffy icing makes all the difference.
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.
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.
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.~
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.
