Happy Birthday America!!!!

I had more patriotic fun yesterday. :) You may get a bit tired of the same three colors.....but it IS the Fourth of July. lol

Here's a bunch of minis. I just LOVE that little birthday cupcake cutter. Cute, cute. :)

I took red white and blue with me where ever I went yesterday. I don't know if there is a such thing as patriotic candy corn or red and blue cones or ice cream.....but I did them anyway. :)
I've been wanting to do Uncle Same hats, so here they are......and here is a birthday cake for America. Notice the firecrackers again. (I've decided to stay away from the exploding ones. :)) 
Snow cones, funky watermelon and flip flops. (I was SO EXCITED to be able to do the flower pattern on the flip flops. I've seen that done by many other decorators and didn't think I could do it....but I did it. :)
My favorites......quilts. This are new patterns for me.....and I really love how they turned out. I can't wait to try these out for every season. :)))))
 
My last assortment of patriotic cookies for summer 2010....
Hopefully I can sell everyone of these this weekend. Everything made by tomorrow night we can take on the trip with us. I'm almost to my $2000 goal (since January 2010)! Hip hip hooray. :)

Now on Monday, I'll need to get started on cookies for the Ukrainians. I leave on Friday for my two week mission trip.....so there is lots to do in the next six days. But first....I need to get through working tomorrow.....and then I'm free and clear.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! What a blessed country we live in. May God continue to bless us.

Oh how I love America. =)

Fantastic!!! I do love the flowers on the flipflops!

You've inspired me in another way- I started a blog! [url=http://lsquaredtoo.blogspot.com]...above all, try something[/url] Just something else to keep me away from cleaning house!

Have a wonderful trip!

I could never get tired of viewing your cookies. Love your creativity shown once again with these ones. Happy 4th of July to you and yours and best wishes on your Mission Trip.

Pam said...

Awww.....thanks to all of you. :) You've put a smile on my face as I've just gotten home from work to find your sweet comments. I appreciate each of you.

Diane....I have talked to Jill in a while. It is nice to know you live close by and are saying good things about me. ;)

Linda....your blog is terrific and I love your cookies. I'm thrilled that I could inspire you.

Blessings to all of you.

You're cookie decorating talent absolutely AMAZES me...ever think of doing tutorials for all of us in complete AWE of your talent? All these cookies are GORGEOUS...the flip flops, if a favorite was possible, would be mine! THANK YOU so much for sharing.

Pam said...

Thanks Vicci. :)

I've been asked to do tutorials before......just haven't taken the time nor had the camera to do it.

I'm happy to help any decorator as best I can, but my main focus is Ukraine and making cookies for that cause.

For now, there are TONS of tutorials out there to help others decorate. I've used them myself to improve my skill.

I appreciate your kindness. :)

Wow, Pam, these are all amazing!! I can't pick a favorite..I love the birthday cake, firecrackers, flip-flops and quilts. And the mini cupcake with the candle is so cute!!
Praying for you as you get ready for your Ukraine trip. I know that God will use you in mighty ways! I heard this quote the other day and thought of you, "God does not call the equipped, he equips the called." How true that is for all of us. :)

Tyler said...

Wow! The pattern on the flip flops looks great! They really came out awesome.

Erin said...

Pam, First off you are truly blessed with a talent. I stole your flag/heart idea and did it on a star for our church lunch. Everybody loved them! I have a question regarding the boxes you just purchased for the sets. I found some that are 8 5/8 x 5 5/8 x 1 3/8. Do you think this would work and not lose too much space. I need to fit 6 cookies in it. If it's easier to just e-mail me my address is emh_3@hotmail.com Thanks!

Jessica said...

These look wonderful, Pam! I'm just amazed at how sharp your lines are - fantastic!

Pam said...

Thanks everyone. :)

Erin....my boxes are 10 x 7 x 2. They are too deep....so 1 3/8 is good. Six cookies might fit in the ones I have, but I usually did 5. I guess it just depends on the size of the cookies. You might be able to fit six small cookies in a box that size.

Erin said...

Pam, I just wanted to let you know I found some stationary boxes like you just purchased at Uline.com. I've used them before for bakery boxes and they have quick shipping. I guess at least to me in IL I get them within two days. Anyways they have lots of different sizes (including the one you use) and they have gold, clear and black boxes as well. There shipping is cheaper but I think their price per box is more. I am going to be purchasing some for my shop so I can let you know if they are good quality. I just thought this may be of interest to you and possibly be a cheaper route. Thanks!

Pam said...

Erin, thanks for the tip. I'll be anxious to hear how you like the boxes you order. :)
