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 :)

    How fun!! I love being able to make every cookie a different design, while still sticking with the same color scheme.

    Chris and you sound as if you would get along wonderfully if you were neighbours! I love that you did the cookies to match the colours in the book her daughter’s class is reading! All of them, all the designs and patterns are just lovely.
