This set was full of different textures and it might be my new thing. I loved the roughness of the barnacles and the scales of her fin (plus the hard-to-tell-from-this-pic shimmer!)

You don’t know how long I’ve waited for someone to ask for these cookies. I’m so excited with the result! And what better of a time to share them with you:

It’s graduation season!…in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been 😅

Thanks to my incredible customers, I don’t have a moment to spare from now until July! I am so, so grateful for all of this small biz support! I’ll try to post as I go, but with all of my plates swirling, it’s better I focus on decorating and less on social media!

That said, I’ve decided to take a short break from custom orders for awhile. (Don’t worry if you’ve already got an order with me - you’re good to go!) In the next few weeks, be on the lookout for my decorating workshop lineup. I’ll be focusing more on the teaching side of things. I love to get the face time with all of you!!

Thank you again for the opportunity to be a part of so many milestones and celebrations! 🍪💕

TLDR: See you in 40 days…

This little cookie business has been such a wild ride for me! I have loved every step of the way, including every twist and turn. If you only knew the plans that were in my head when I started this and where I am now, you’d be completely lost! I love that it has evolved into where it is now and I want to keep the momentum up. So I’m slowing down. 🤔

Probably sounds crazy, right? Bad business move? Nah, I don’t think so! The Lord got me here, he’ll lead me on rest of the way. But I need to take a moment and listen to where He wants me to go. I’ve got to trust in His providence. So for Lent, I’m stepping away from social media (not that I was ever good at this in the first place! I’m a cookier, not a content creator, amiright?!) and focusing on my family (and myself) and getting some things in order with the bakery to ensure that this is my best year yet, personally and professionally. Please stick around! I’ll be back. And I’ll have some exciting things to share!

Oh, and I’ll still be baking! I’m booked up through April (thank you, all!) but if you want to order cookies, book a private decorating workshop, or have a question about an existing order, please submit an inquiry through my website or shoot me an email: [email protected]

I’ll be praying for you all throughout Lent. See you after Easter!! ✝️

…and yes, I share this photo every year. 🤷🏼‍♀️✝️

🎉 2022 - I gotta say, you were pretty good to me. But I’m so excited to see what 2023 has in store! I’m really looking forward to seeing where I’m supposed to take this little business of mine, and I’m so grateful that all of you have given me the opportunity to explore my creativity, grow my business, and experiment some new ideas! I hope you all will stick with me this coming year and tag along down whatever path God leads me. I know it’s going to be a great one!

✨If you have any events that you’d like me to be a part of (and by me, I mean my cookies🤪) please send me your dates ASAP! I’m already booked through mid-February and because of some things coming down the pipeline, my availability for custom cookies will be limited!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Why do Nutcrackers always look so terrified?!

Maybe it’s because they know Christmas is in 3 days and they’ve still got a pretty long list to accomplish!

Every year I vow that I’m going to take my Advent slower and not wear myself down…based on my posting history, how do you think I’m doing? (Insert nutcracker face here 😬)

BUT there is still time…so now I’ll rest and prepare with my family by just BEING with them (and maybe I’ll post some pictures of cookies every once in awhile). That’s not so scary.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for every one of you!

Goats and flowers. That was my inspiration for this set. While I couldn’t figure out a way to incorporate an actual goat (I guess I’m not that creative) I think I got the point across.

Edit: I just realized that you can’t actually see any of the cookies that say GOAT (greatest of all time) 😂 in case you’re wondering what in the world I’m referring to 🤦🏼‍♀️

I mentioned in my last post that this set was near and dear to me. Well if you look closely at these cookies, the GOAT they’re talking about is…my very own mama! And she truly is the GOAT in so many ways and I have to brag on her for a minute. I had the honor of making these for her retirement party - she’s been a florist for the past 20 years after having retired from being an educator for the previous 30+ years! Whew. What a rockstar!! And now? NOW she is living out her true vocation in the most humbling way I could ever imagine, and she is doing it with such grace. She continues to be such an inspiration and a true model of His love…and I can’t put into words how happy I am that I get to witness this next chapter from just down the street!! (I might even get my first employee out of this! 😘)

I may just end up giving every one of the cookies in this set it’s own feature because I’m in love with all of them. But this bouquet may be one of my faves (I’ve already recreated it for another set!) Plus, this bride chose STUNNING colors for her fall wedding, so that helped!

Oh, hello!

If you’re wondering who the person in this picture is…it’s me! (My name’s Andrea, btw…not Joy…who knew?! 🤷🏼‍♀️) It’s come to my attention that after almost two years I’ve never formally introduced myself! And apparently are a thing? So here I am! Feel free to jump ship now, otherwise, sit back and prepare to learn some super extraordinarily interesting facts about yours truly! 😆

🇮🇹 I inherited my love for baking from my Italian aunts (then passed down to my mom and her siblings and on to me)
💙💛 I grew up in WV and graduated from WVU with degree in Biology (sorry I’m not using that one, dad)
👰🏼‍♀️ I’ve been married for 12 years to the most amazing man
👧🏼👦🏼👦🏼 We have 3 beautiful blondies
⛪️ I’m a Cradle Catholic and trying my hardest to live out my life for Christ
🍪 After Jesus and my family, I LOVE baking. Everything about it. I love making pastries for people and the joy on their faces. I love making cookies. I love decorating and teaching people to decorate. I especially love eating baked goods.
👱🏻‍♀️ My name might not be Joy, but it’s one of my favorite fruits of the Holy Spirit! (hence, the bakery name)

😅 So now you know! THANK YOU for allowing me to take up space on your feed and in your life. Drop me a note to remind me how we met or what I’ve baked for you! 👇🏻 Let’s reminisce together!!

I’ve absolutely loved doing what I do and getting to bake for so many of you. I’m hoping to meet more of you in person (I miss seeing you at the market!) so come take a class when you can! I couldn’t keep doing what I’m doing if it wasn’t for my awesome customers (and some good grace), so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! 💕

Hello, will you be at the One Loudoun Farmer's Market this Saturday (July 10)? Thanks!
I'm so late writing this but I purchased the DIY kit along with some personalized cookies for Valentine's Day and WOW, these were the BEST sugar cookies I've ever had! And I'm a (hobby) baker myself! They have the perfect snap while maintaining its chewiness.🤤 My partner doesn't typically engage in decorating activities with me but he jumped in with the cookie kit and had so much fun!

I have no pictures to show you because they were eaten so quickly😊
