Goo Goo Gaa Gaa…the past two weeks were full of adorable baby onesies! One order for little girl onesies to coordinate with a tutu themed 1st birthday and one order for little boy onesies matching a baby shower invitation. Now that my daughter is over 1 and technically no longer considered a baby (in my books they’ll always be my babies though!!) it was fun decorating these cookies and reminiscing about their baby months :) Awww Yep…I’m a softie for babies ;) Hope both parties enjoy their sweet little baby onesies!

When I started my business I pictured myself making snowflake cookies, hearts for loved ones, and cartoon characters for birthday favors. While I never thought about the designs of cookies I wouldn’t ever make, this past week I had to laugh because I’m fairly certain if I had, these would have been on my list. I received an order for Kimberly-Clark product cookies. We’re talking Kotex, Depend, Kleenex, Poise, Huggies, and Pull-ups. Yep…don’t think I ever would have thought I’d be decorating tampons :) But the day has come and I’m super glad it did! They turned out awesome and I had soooo much fun coming up with the designs. Love feeling those creative juices flowing :)
Here’s how it all started…I wanted some funny designs and others the product logo:
Then came what colors I would need. When I realized how many colors I originally planned for, I cut back a few of the non-essentials:
And here they are folks! The K-C product cookies! Hope they enjoy :)

I have officially deemed Chris as my funniest customer thus far! OMG she is a riot! I enjoyed every email correspondence as it always made me laugh. I even read her responses to my husband and he laughed! Wish we lived closer…I have a feeling it would be fun to get to know her :)
Chris emailed me last week inquiring about alphabet letters. She signed up to bring cookies to her daughter’s school and self diagnosed herself as being in over her head. I commend her for recognizing this early on…I would have been elbow deep in flour the day before cookies were due, crying to my husband that “I Can’t Do This!!” ;) So pat on the back Chris!! Here’s how our cookie relationship started:
The tutorials I have just watched on youtube have immediately filled me with dread and made me confront my limitations. So, I am appealing to you. However, before I even begin to search for letter stencils, make dough, xacto cut out the letters, make a usable batch of royal icing for the very first time in my life, pipe out the outlines, fill them in, shake cookies, and poke out bubbles for 26 letters (!!!!) I thought I would solicit an estimate from you if you are interested and available to do this.
How can I say no to someone that funny! It also reminded me when I started getting into cookies and watched hundreds of YouTube videos. I was terrified as well! And those damn bubbles STILL give me nightmares! Grrr…
Had so much fun decorating these cookies…and fun spelling out mine and my daughter’s names. I would have spelled out my husband’s, but he has repeat letters so he had to sit this one out ;)
The inspiration for the uber cool color scheme was taken directly from the book her daughter’s class was reading :)
