Cookies on Mission to Ukraine!

This will be my last post for a few weeks. I leave for the Ukraine on Friday, July 10 and will return Saturday, July 25. Needless to say......I am VERY excited! :-)

I made my last batch of cookies for a while......cookies for my mission team members and cookies for the Ukrainians we will meet on our trip. :-)

Here's a pic of our mission team t-shirt/logo and the cookies I made to match.






Here's a few pics of the colorful flowers I made for Ukrainians. I went a little crazie taking pics......it's hard to resist when there are lots of colors and lots of cookies to work with. ;-) I made 60+ flower cookies.






Flower cookies with a logo cookie.....


All of them together......


So this is it......time for me to put my decorating bags and tips away and pack a bag for the Ukraine. I can hardly wait to see what God has in store during this mission trip!

If you want to keep up with my trip experiences, I plan to post regular updates on my other blog: Crazie Commitment.

See ya later, alligator. :-)

Happy Birthday America!

Yippee...... I was able to have one last big "play day" with cookies this week. I had a patriotic order to fill, so I was planning on making additional patriotic cookies. I looked at lots of my favorite patriotic from others and came up with some fun stuff. :-) I'm getting in my cookie fix before I leave in EIGHT days. (Can you believe it is almost here?!)

Some country patriotic hearts.....


I've done all of these at Memorial Day, but I knew they would be popular for the Fourth.


I hand cut these USAs using a template I made. My inspiration came from Amifsud.


These cool fireworks hearts were inspired by my good friend, Cindy M.


I love these "postage stamp" type flags inspired by Amifsud.


Hee hee.....red white and blue ladybugs......love them!


Patriotic 'pillars. :-)))))


Patchwork patriotic stars and hearts. I did a similar thing at Valentines Day, so I thought I'd try it with red, white, and blue. :-)




I love this style of balloon! My inspiration came from Amifsud (can you tell I LOVE here work?!).


I love how all of them look together. Doesn't it make you want to stand up and salute? lol I wish I could add music to my blog. You can be sure God Bless America would be playing. :-)


Next week I'm making some ocokies for my Ukraine mission team and then bunches and bunches of little flowers to share with the Ukranians I meet. :-) I can't wait. That will be all the cookies from me.....probably for the summer. :-( We'll see. When I come back from my trip (July 25), I'll need a bit of recovery time.....and then I've got a long list of things to accomplish before my foot surgery on August 11. But you can be sure that if it is possible to fit in a batch or two of cookies, I will be doing it. ;-)

Happy Independence Day to America!
