Here, There, and Everywhere

When I started this post, I had already had a crazy, productive day.  So, I thought, why not write a post to add to the list of the day's accomplishments.  (Just as a run down - dropped CA at cheer camp, then to Sam's, Kinko's, Michael's, Target, Wolf Camera, downtown to pick something up, the bank, home for a quick lunch, picked up CA from cheer camp, typed up my resume, glanced at a blog or 2, and now here I am seeing how much of a blog I can write while Turk and CA play!!  Wish I was this productive everyday!)  Just wanted to show you some the few orders I've done recently. 

I did 2 sets of new baby cookies. 

I think I love the brown with the baby blue or pink the most.

And I think I've found my favorite name to write on a cookie, so far. 
It starts with an "L", so of course I love it!

These were for a wedding shower.  Hot pink and black - always sassy.

And I had plenty of hot pink icing left over, so I used it for Amy's Iced Whites that she ordered. 
Well, Iced Pinks.

And I didn't forget about America's birthday - I just forgot to blog about it.  Whoopsie.
And as my brother pointed out, I only have 9 states represented on the cookies.  It just wasn't physically possible to put 50 white stars in that small space. 
My friend, Catherine, was over at the house when I was baking the states.  She started to ask me why I was making Masters cookies again.  Ha!

I have a few orders for this coming week that I need to get invoices out to!  I've been slack!
Hope you have a great weekend!  I'll be happy boating at the lake!!

Getting Jiggy With It

One of my favorite things that I use to do as a child was make Jello with my mom.  Well, we made Knox blocks.  Not sure why we always made gelatin with Knox instead of J-E-L-L-O.  I know it wasn't because we didn't like Bill Cosby.  (Because that's another childhood warm and fuzzy - watching the Cosby Show.  I imagined me and Rudy being best friends.)  Since I enjoyed making shapes out of the tasty phenomenon called gelatin, I decided to share the experience with my niece.  Now, this does relate to Sweet B's, I promise.  I just wanted to show you what my cookie cutters are doing while on summer vacation. 
They're cutting out Jigglers.  But CA said she wanted to call them "Jello cookies."  Ha!
She was obsessed with cutting out tiny circles and tiny squares.  They were her favorite.  She also cut out a cowboy hat in honor of Woody from Toy Story 3.
I let her pick out any cutters she wanted to use and so she did!  (She's never posed for a picture before, can you tell?  Yeah, right.) 
All the left overs.  Too bad you can't knead it back together and roll it out for more cut-outs like my dough!
She loved them!  I'm not exactly sure how many she ate.  Oh, well. 

You might wonder about the little one I call Turk.  Does she like Jello?
Um, no.
I believe the face says it all. 
Well, maybe she'll come around.

So, no new cookies right now.  I'm still happy nannying!
