Personal Side

As I write this, I'm preparing to go celebrate Thanksgiving Day with family today.

I've had the morning to reflect on life and all that I'm grateful for.
Even though there's been some pretty awful things that have happened around us in the last year.....
there is many more WONDERFUL things that have blessed us this year.

I am grateful for my God, my family, and so much more.

I pray that you all will feel as blessed as I do this day and throughout the year.

I'm honored that you would even take the time to look at and read my blog.
Thank you!

This next week I have the privilege of traveling out-of-town to make a cookie decorating video.
Wow! Who would have thought?!

And then....December will surely pass in a blur as my son graduates from college in Florida,
as we travel to see family for the holidays,
and as we celebrate the birth of Jesus here at home with my immediate family.
Thankfully, I've allowed enough time to get way ahead on the blog.....
so it will some how stay current even with my crazie schedule. ;)

Ready, set......here comes December!
Go....

Instagram photos for this week:


Hot Chocolate, anyone? ��
Cup of Love cookies from last winter.


I still remember having the flu last winter and staring at this tissue box often.
I couldn't help myself....
I had to make similar snowflake cookies once I was well again.


Hidden Card Trick Quilt-patterned cookies.....with a little Christmas flare.


Perfect afternoon =
gingerbread cookies + fun color palette of glaze + blaring Christmas music + rain falling outside. ��


Happy Woodland Trees....


More Christmas Quilt Cookies.....


Getting my white-birch-tree-look on for this woodlands winter wonderland set…


Finally… The knitted look I was going for.
I'm sure that everyone will stay warmer while eating these. 


On this Thanksgiving Day, it's awesome to reflect on all that God has done and is doing in my life. I'm blessed beyond measure, for sure!
I'm so thankful that I'm privileged to spend a lot of my time decorating cookies
(which brings me great joy)
so that others can share in that joy in a multitude of ways.
Here's a fun winter scene created this week. 
A huge Thank You to all of you for following my work and supporting me. 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Happy 2014 Thanksgiving!

It has been a fabulous autumn season.......such a perfect time of year.

And now as it draws to a close, I wanted to take time to reflect on all the blessings.

My heart is super grateful for all of you and your support of CookieCrazie.

Because of this blog and it's viewership, funds are raised to help some dear Ukrainian
brothers and sisters who are in need of some extra love and help at this moment in time.

With all my heart.....I thank you!

And I thank God for His incredible love and mercy to me......
and His gracious gift of allowing me to do this in His name. :)


But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and
uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.
2 Corinthians 2:14

2014 Thanksgiving Cookie Collection

Melon Turquoise Shabby Chic Cookie Collection






It's always a joy to start off a cookie set with just a few colors in mind,
beautiful silicone molds, and CookieCrazie Edible Glaze Molding Clay







I decorated this set right before I embarked on my Ukraine trip this summer.
My desire was to keep my heart focused on the right things.....and this verse came to mind.


"Whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

How appropriate to be sharing this cookie collection the week of Thanksgiving. :)
