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.

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.~
