It's been a LONG week. I started the week with my biggest order ever....72 graduation cookies. Next, I made about 50 cookies for a BBQ/bake sale fundraiser we had for the Ukraine mission effort today. And finally, I had a big order of patriotic cookies and birthday cookies. I've stayed up WAY late two nights this week. And honestly, I'm a little tired of doing cookies right now. I didn't think I'd say that......but like I said, it was a LOOOOONNNNGGGG week. lol
I started off the week pretty disappointed. I was so excited about my circus cookie entry into the Sweet Treats cookie challenge. This was my first contest and I came up with the idea in just a day's time and put it together. I thought it was pretty cute. It is obvious the Sweet Treats cookie decorators are WAY out of my league. They did such elaborate cookies (I'm not sure I'd ever do such an elaborate cookie) that I didn't have a chance. I'll show you my cookie in the next few days......but as far the contest, I think I came in close to last. :-((((((((( Needless to say, I won't be doing that again. Too discouraging.
I don't have much to show you tonight. I have a few pics of the graduation cookies I did.....and then the patriotic cookies. Everything else I did this week was a repeat design. I didn't want to bore you with pics of things you'd already seen, so I didn't bother to take pics.
Here's the "cougar" paw prints for the grad's football team.
Here's the logo for the college he will attend. This was my first time doing a logo......a little scary, but it turned out OK.
Three boxes full of 70 cookies!
Patriotic cookies galore. I was seeing stars and stripes in my sleep! ;-)
This next week I'm only decorating cookies one time instead of three like last week. I leave for the Ukraine in just 13 days and there is so much to do!!!!!!
