New Cookies & More

Hi Friends!

I apologize (as usual) for taking so long to write again. The new store is taking so much of my spare time. Tons to do and think about. The displays (what kind?). The counter (what material?). The walls (what color?). The oven (how much?..No seriously..THAT MUCH??) Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled. It's fun to think about all of these minuscule details that will make our store comfy and chic. The perfect place to go when your sweet tooth begs you for a little sugar (or a lot like mine does). It's nice- even if we are sooo very far from that right now.

Planning for the store also gives me the perfect excuse to surf the net and shop online. lol. For example, on my search for pink & brown accent pieces, I found the cutest set of baby modern bedding.
It's like it was made for my company. Look at the lamp! Sigh. The color Pink and Chocolate - two of my favorite things. :)

I also found these amazing cake stands from Sarah's stands on Etsy.

I adore Etsy. You can find almost anything your little heart desires. And even if you don't find it, chances are someone can custom make it for you!


Sarah makes these in 70 colors! I love to think about the possible combinations. Red, green and white for Christmas...Orange, black and purple for Halloween...Burgundy, brown and mustard yellow for Thanksgiving. Well, you get the idea!

Last but never, ever least....cookie pics! My favorite orders of the last couple of weeks:

This simple airplane design was used to celebrate a little boy's second birthday.

Another simple design.  :)
And lastly, Iron Man. It took quite a bit of research and planning to decide how I would make these little guys. We had fun...some more than others....
I made M an extra of course..and while uploading the pics from the memory card...lol

Coming soon: Store Pics (and progress), Cookie Stenciling (a tutorial), Contest (yeay!..who doesn't love to win stuff??) and Halloween Cookies!!

I hope all of you are having a fantastic week!!
