Friends who I have shared with know that this years cookie orders have taken a toll on me. Everything from extremely rude interactions, non payments, short payments, late/no shows and last minute cancelations. I have decided to take a break from cookies for at least the summer (except for the few already booked) and hope to find joy in it again soon! πŸ™ƒ Thank you so much for your support! 🌻

Happy Friday (even though I have been a day off all week!!)

Thank you to everyone who has already ordered cookies this year!! I made a comment to someone about this business being stressful and my friend was shocked that happy cookies could cause stress 😜! There are certainly more ups than downs which keeps me going, but small business stuff can be hard!

This time of year is usually slow for cookies, so I am going to take a little break! If you have an order already on my calendar- it WILL be completed as discussed! However, I am not taking new orders until after March. Again, I am NOT closing, but taking a break to reevaluate how I need to handle some situations in the future to make it a good experience for everyone!

***GRADUATION ORDERS***
My calendar is filling up with graduation orders!! If you want graduation cookies this year, please message me SOON to get on my calendar! If you want to verify that you are on my calendar already, send me a message and I'll let you know!

If you have any future events that need cookies, send me a message to get on my calendar! The good thing about a break is I that I come back ready to go with lots of ideas!

As always, thank you for your support! πŸ’•

120 Olympic medals for ERE's World Read Aloud Day!

When I started this order, I was keeping track if how long each step was taking so I could make a fun post about the process. After the first 10 hours, I stopped keeping track because I realized it would only make me cry! 😬 I underestimated how long these would take by a long shot! But in the end I was happy with the outcome (and glad to be done)!

I know some of you like to bake or have kiddos with a knack for baking so thought I would share a tip!

How do you easily adhere sprinkles to the sides of a cake? Cut wax paper strips in the desired height. Spray one side of wax paper with a non stick spray. Add your sprinkles and lift to remove excess. Place sprinkles side on your cake and lightly press into icing. Repeat for any missed spots! It would also be fun to cut the wax paper into shapes- like a bunny for Easter!

Happy Baking! 😊

That's a wrap for the 2021 Christmas cookie season! THANK YOU to everyone who purchased one cookie or many cookies and allowed me to be part of your holiday celebrations and gift giving!

December was a BUSY month even without cookies! My daughter's birthday, band concerts, my birthday, parties and holiday prep! For December, I had 8 birthday orders, a craft fair, 2 band orders, a cheer order, teacher retirement, college acceptance and over 30 Christmas orders and a cake pop order. I also snuck two packages in the mail as surprises to some special people. The rough tally for December was 1350 decorated cookies, 250 undecorated cookies, 150 hot cocoa bombs and 24 cake pops! So if you are local and couldn't find powdered sugar or chocolate, I'm sorry πŸ™ƒ!

Fun fact: Most people don't realize that I started learning how to decorate cakes years before I had my kids. I made cookies here and there over the last 20 years, but it wasn't until about 3-4 years ago that I started cutting back on cakes and making more cookies. Over the last few years, I have realized my passion for cookie decorating! I thought it would be fun to see some of my earlier Christmas cookies! (I'll do another cringe worthy post in the near future of where it started and where its at πŸ™ƒ).

Halfway through, I realized how important sleep is- numerous nights of very little sleep (or none) did a number on me and I learned my lesson! During this time, my daughter taught herself how to make bows to help package, my son became an expert at putting together all the boxes and my husband did double duty washing dishes! The fact that I don't feel burned out after this crazy month tells me that it's the right creative outlet...at least for now!

I am now looking forward to taking the month of January off! πŸŽ‰

Thank you again and Merry Christmas!! πŸŽ„

Birthday cookies that went out today! When she asked me to make birthday cookies for her husband a few years ago, she said it can be red and green, Christmas or whatever! I have a December birthday (and a child with a December birthday) and I insisted that his cookies not have anything to do with Christmas or Christmas colors! πŸ™ƒ

Love the way the colors pop on these! Happy Birthday!

I know we are deep into Christmas, but this graduation order is a good reminder to get on my list if you have a senior and might want graduation cookies! Details and payment will be worked out later- this is just to get on my list. I already have a list of about 10 orders!

Cookies for Daniel to take to school- plus snowflakes for teachers and goody bag for band directors and mini snowflakes and snickerdoodle for friends- man, that's a lot of sugar!! He made snickerdoodle cookies and kept me company last night!πŸ’•
The kids have been so happy to take decorated cookies to share this year- I'm usually too busy with orders! I definitely am factoring that in next year because it's important to me. Thank you to the ones I have contacted about moving your pickup a day or two. It means a lot to me! πŸ₯°
