Happy Halloween Traditions

I am a holiday lover. I get it from my Mom. I grew up with my Mom toting out boxes or bins of decorations for every conceivable holiday and strategically placing them around the house. I loved it. It always felt fun and festive at our house when a holiday was approaching :) Now that I have a family of my own, I have slowly been accumulating my own decorations for the kids. It’s just one of those traditions that I cherish and will continue.

A woman emailed me that she always buys her grandkids cookies for halloween and wanted to send her four grand-lovies some of my cookies this year. Double fun!  A holiday tradition AND sugar…love it!! I hope the kids love their cookies made especially for them sent with love from their Grandma M :)  What a cool Grandma!!

Fabulous Fashionista

One of my friends is turning 30 and her Mom ordered some cookies for her special day. My friend is none other than the amazing talent who designed the Royal Cookie Designs logo so of course her cookies had to be state of the art ;)

My friend Brittany has to be one of the most beautiful women I know…inside and out. But let me tell ya…she is one hot mama! She always looks uber fabulous!! So when her Mom suggested high heels I knew we had to take it one step further and the obvious design was of course fashion!

Hope you had a fantastic birthday Brittany! Wish I lived closer and could help you celebrate :)

Another 40

It seems like I made a lot of cookies for 5 year olds and 40 year olds this year. One of those 40 year old birthdays was none other than my own hubby :) He’s definitely like a good wine…keeps getting better with age :)

Here are the fun cookies I made for his party. I started with a cupcake cutter and squeezed it while pushing it into the dough so it elongated the cutter into a more beer pint glass shape. I also cut off the cherry on the top from the dough so it was more rounded like a head of beer.

I just couldn’t imagine giving little kids beer designed cookies, to I modifyed the design slightly and made the kiddos root beer instead!

Last Flops

I can’t tell you how many women I know love this time of year, myself included. I love when fall hits. The air is crisp. The leaves begin turning beautiful shades of orange. It’s the season for apple picking and sweaters. Many of my friends swap their wardrobes when the season changes…bringing out their sweaters and putting away the sandals. Well…in my household there’s no rushing putting those flippy flops away. My flops stay accessible all year long :) So while this may realistically be the last order of flip flops this year, they will never be far from my heart!

My Mother In Law’s bestie LOVES flip flops (I’m guessing as much as I do!!) and when she asked me to create some flip flops for her friend I did flips :) hehe “OF COURSE!!”

Here’s the color palette I used for inspiration:

And the beautiful flops for our beautiful Nancy :)
