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.

Veteran’s Day 2018

I was humbled to be a part of Operation Cookie Takeover  this October.  These cookies went out to an active duty Marine stationed abroad.  In addition to active duty military, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans; I can’t imagine what it must take.  Much obliged to Melanie at Killer Zebras for the perfect thank you stencil and accompanying cookie cutter.

Brave Hearts

Another set for a serviceman overseas.  One of many sent to our military, serving far away from home, through Operation Cookie Takeover.  Although I do not know the individual who received these treats, I want them to know they are not forgotten.

Army Strong

Another cookie set sent to the troops abroad.  Although I do not know the young man who will receive these cookies, I hope he feels my/our support.

I air brushed a just baked cookie with three colors, ivory, forest green, yellow- shown here (sorry about the out of focus picture). Then I used a 20 second stiff icing to outline the perimeter and word.  Flooded w 10 second icing and, while still wet, placed little starts from a Texan Sprinkles mix for the just right bling.

You’re so Fly

Several times a year I send cookies to service members serving abroad.  This batch made their way to a young man in the Air Force. My thanks in word and cookie.
