Design Contest Open For Voting!

Good morning everyone !! (or afternoon or even evening wherever you are and whenever you are reading this!) A few weeks ago I designed up some cute little animals for a design contest…and the voting is now open!! Hooray!! There are some absolutely AMAZING designs that some incredibly creative people made up.

You should definitely head over to LilaLoa’s site and check them out…while you’re there vote on a couple too!

As you can see I can’t vote for my own designs (BUMMER!) But you can 😉 As a reminder…below are the cookies I submitted. 

Have fun and enjoy all the designs!

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!

Royal Cookie Sweepstakes Winner!

Drumroll please….

The winner of the first Royal Cookie Sweepstakes is…

Vanessa:

Why did the Roman chicken cross the road?

She was afraid someone would Caesar!

AND

Steph!:

Why did the rubber chicken cross the road?
She wanted to stretch her legs.

Yep…I read all the jokes to my hubby last night and he literally could not narrow it down to one, so you both win some yumminess 🙂

Congratulations ladies! I’ll be working on your cookies this weekend 🙂

First Royal Cookie Sweepstakes!

I’ve decided to hold my first sweepstakes in honor of some recent cookies I made. I realize I only have a few followers but hey…it only increases your odds of winning right!

I don’t know what it is, but recently the cookies I’ve made turn out closely resembling eggs! I’m leaving for a well needed trip to Mexico tomorrow morning and thought I’d make some Sunshine Cookies for my husband and his parents who are coming to help take care of our two girls. Only…my suns look like EGGS!

And if you remember, I made flower cookies for my friend and even they looked like eggs!

Clearly I have some mother  hen thing going on 🙂

Sweepstakes Rules:

Leave me a comment on this post (not Facebook) with your best “Why did the chicken cross the road?” joke and the funniest one will win a dozen of my very own cookies (I promise…nothing that resembles an egg!). The funniest person in my house is by far my husband so the winning joke will be selected anonymously by him (no use trying to butter him up y’all!). Entries need to be submitted by Sunday, March 4th…winner announced Monday the 5th. If you think I don’t already have it, make sure to leave an email address so I know how to get a hold of you if you are the lucky winner.

Good luck and I’ll see you when I’m back from vacation!
