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!

St Patrick’s Day 2017

Does life ever get the best of you and you get from point A to point B just in time? That was my March and most of April.  Busy is not bad, just lamenting that there are only 24 hours in the day (or that I could be a bit more efficient?).  Back to prioritizing blog posts…

The cookie platter from St Patrick’s Day showcased some delightful stencils from the ever amazing Killer Zebras.
