Holiday Spirit

Over the past few weeks I have been busy decorating an assortment of Christmas and Holiday cookies for various customers. It’s easy to say it’s kept me amazingly busy, but more important it has really pushed me in the Christmas spirit. It’s hard not to be excited when you’re making snowmen and reindeers. I sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to my daughters the day after I made these little guys…(and have sang it every day since at her request haha)

One of my customers wanted to give her employees a decorated cookie along with a cookie that said Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays so I piped up these adorable cookies…

Another customer ordered 6 dozen favors for their corporate holiday party. As much as I tried, these did not bring snow our way…yet!!

I made these simple cookies for my daughter and the other adorable kiddies to enjoy at her day care…

It has been a wonderful holiday season so far and we still have another week to go. I am done decorating cookies for 2012 and am going to truly enjoy my time off with my adorable little girls and my amazing husband as we wait and watch for Mr. Claus :)

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!!

It’s a Mans World

And based on the men I know, their world would involve fire somehow. I don’t know what it is, but men seem to like fire.

A recent order came in requesting favors for a husband’s 40th birthday party. There was no “theme” per say but she did say she was going to have a few things printed up with “40 & Hot”. My thought process went from Man…Hot…Fire.  Flames!  And so I designed these 40’s that are on fire.  Super fun to make and in my opinion a super cool and unique theme for such a milestone birthday.

Dew my inspiration from this cool car flame

Wanted it to be a fuller flame around the 40 so I drew it up using a Bic marker

Then went to town :) Happy Birthday Curt :)

Oh and I have to thank Pinterest for this order. Small world it is…the super nice woman who placed this order lives in Bellingham, Washington…where I WENT TO COLLEGE!!! I couldn’t believe it. Testament that social media does in fact work :)

Lucky Ladies

Picked up a cute little shamrock cutter this past week and immediately thought it would be perfect for the sweepstakes winners! It’s so fun and appropriate since good ol’ St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Need to make my deliveries now to the lucky ladies…get it? Lucky. Lucky as in gold. Gold as in gold at the end of the rainbow. It might be deep but there’s a connection there somewhere ;)
