Comfort Cookies

As you know, I love cookies.  And I love colors.  And I love giving colorful cookies. 
You may think of giving cookies when you're throwing a birthday party or baby shower or celebrating something special.  But I also think of cookies when I don't have the words to say. 
A friend of mine recently lost someone very dear to her.  And my heart hurt for her.  I'm not good with words when it comes to tough situations.  I have a great shoulder to cry on, but I'm not so eloquent when it comes to saying the best words to comfort.   But I know what I can do, I can make cookies.  And I know my cookies make people smile.  So, when the question came up of what we should do for our friend, I said - I'll make cookies!  Now, I know that cookies can't make everything better, but if my cookies provide a smile, even if only for a moment, during a time of grief, then my purpose was accomplished.
So, I hope that these cookies made her smile...because I know I loved decorating them!!  Ok, enough of the Debbie Downer are the cookies.
I did a combo of flowers and paisleys.  In fun colors, of course.

Yup, you guessed it, these are my favorites.

To this family, I love you guys and hope the cookies brightened your day.

Even in tough situations, think cookies.

Cookies That Say "Aaarrgh!"

So, you know that I love a theme. Well, when one of my frequent customers asked me to do a pirate theme, how excited do you think I was?! I got to have lots of fun with these!

And I got to use my special cookie markers again to draw the treasure map!!

Ashlee sent me a picture of how she displayed the cookies and I loved it!!
So cute!

Thanks, Ashlee, for giving me the opportunity and I'm soo glad you enjoyed them!

Crafty Cookies

I've had the chance recently to meet some pretty amazing and talented women here in the Augusta area.  Dream Come Tutus, Sew Devine, and of course, Neapolitan Cupcakes to name a few.  Another creative crafter is ArtsAnneCrafts.  She recently asked me to do some logo cookies for her.  Her logo is so cute, I had to say yes. 

She does everything from gifts tags, hair bows, to hand painted ornaments.
Check out her talent here.

And I got to use tools I've never used before. 
Yup.  I drew her logo on those cookies. 
(They make special markers for that.)
I've had the markers for awhile now and finally put them to use!

So, thanks, Anne, for the opportunity!

As always, think cookies.
