Safari Fever!

One of my dearest friends is adopting an adorable little boy and this weekend was her adoption shower. Her sister did such a great job organizing everything and the safari theme couldn’t have been more perfect!! I offered to make cookie favors for all the guests…to be honest, there’s really nothing I wouldn’t have done to help, but this is an area I’m definitely comfortable with ;)

Decided to do three different safari animals based on the cartoon animals on the invites.

Lion

Zebra

and Giraffe

I cannot wait for my friend to bring home her son. Such an exciting year for them!!! She and her hubby are going to make amazing parents :)))

My Life’s A Zoo

Every once in awhile I sit back and marvel at what my life has become. Just a few short years ago I was busy bustling away as a professional woman…dealing with rush hour traffic, cranky customers, lazy co-workers and trying to find time to “find myself”. Fast forward and here I am a completely different woman…well on the outside at least ;) I’m now a stay at home Mom with two beautiful little girls and a passion for cookies. While the two lives sound vastly different, they really have many many similarities. While I used to work in a zoo…I now draw zoo characters for my almost 2 year old to test her “Mooooo’ing” abilities :) I wouldn’t trade it for the world!!

One of the blogs I stalk, LilaLoa, announced they were having a cookie design contest. I immediately saw my zoo animals and thought “Hey, why not!”. The design contest required that all entries use a certain cookie cutter (which I didn’t have so I used a homemade stencil) and the more creative the better. [Here are the official rules]

What started out like this (pay no attention to my daughter’s scribbles hehe):

Was mixed with 9 different colors of icing:

And turned into this:

I have to say I’d kiss any one of them :) Hope you like them. If you do…visit LilaLoa and vote for me!
