Get Well Vickie!

Now that my sister-in-law has received the get well cookies I sent her.....I can post about it. I wanted it to be a complete surprise, so I didn't want to write about it here or on Flickr until she received them.

My sister-in-law, Vickie, just had a mastectomy a week ago after finding out she has stage III breast cancer. This has been a hard time for her and her family and I wanted to do anything I could to be there for her. Since she lives in Memphis, TN, the possibilities were limited. But God put it on my heart to make some special cookies for her and attached encouraging Bible verses to each one. I sent them on Thursday hoping they'd get there in two days (rather than three days which would have been Monday)......and I just read her caringbridge post finding out she received them yesterday. YAY!

You've seen all the flowers and quilts I sent her. Here are the other cookies I included with them.

These medicine bottles were totally inspired by Polka-Dot-Zebra's version. My writing stinks......but I hope I got the cute sentiment across. :-)


Here's some special one's made just for Vickie.


And finally a group pic of several of the cookies I sent.


This week I'll say good-bye to spring colors and go back to burnt orange, brown, gold and avocado colors when I make lots of Thanksgiving cookies to sell next weekend. I've got a few new designs in mind and can't wait to try them out!

Pam! I am blown away by your cookies!

I am visiting for the 2nd time...and finally had a minute to leave you a message of thanks for sharing your passion for cookies! And Jesus! :) It shows in your work and your smile!

I am going to point my daughter here and see if she gets a sweet idea of what she can give her grandparents for Christmas!

Jesus taught that we all have talents, and it's so heartwarming to see you using yours to not only further the Kingdom of God, but to brighten the days of those who are hurting. God bless you! I try not to be envious...but your talent! Wow! I'd love to have a smidgen of it.

So I followed the link from Cake Central to here cause your cookies are AMAZING. Just curious where you purchased the cutter you use for your quilts? I have been looking everywhere for something like that.
Thanks!

Awwww, Robin, you are precious. Thank you so much. :-)

Thanks Erin. I purchased the fluted square cutters (it is a set of 5) at Country Kitchen SweetArt: http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/product.aspx?T=3&ShopId=44&CatId=603&SubCatId=302&productId=633922

They are expensive.....but WORTH it!

Enjoy. :-)
