Fruitful Week ;)

Well this week is stacking up to be as cookie crazie as last week. It wasn't intentional......it just happened. :)

First.....here's a pic of the platter I took to the luau Sunday night. The cookies disappeared in minutes. That was a delight in most ways....but to watch them be devoured in just a short amount of time was a little sad too. So much time to create.....so little time to chew and swallow. 



This week I had a bunch of icing left over from last week's "summer extravaganza". So yesterday morning I decided to make a large batch of cookies to quickly decorate with all those wonderful colors. However, my crazie-ness kicked into high gear......and suddenly I was headed full steam into decorating an extraordinary number of different fruit cookies. But boy, did I have fun.

And I used a lot of the old icing making the fruit and these simple, but cute smileys. (But I might add, that I made 4-5 more colors of NEW icing to make sure the fruit was more authentic.......My daughter was laughing at me for making new icing when I'm trying to get rid of the old stuff. =))


So here is evidence of my my "fruitful" day yesterday. ;)

First you have your citrus fruit......

then a bunch of fruit that grows on trees.....


add in some berries and cherries (yum!).....

and just a few more.......lol

and suddenly you have a fruit explosion......maybe this would be called the fruit salad. :)

I still have a batch of cookies to do tomorrow for an order.....so I'm not done yet this week.

Tired of my crazie-ness yet??? I hope not....because I sure enjoy having all of you here on my blog..... (Thanks for visiting, by the way.)

Beautiful!!! My daughter absolutely will NOT eat fruit (unlike my little boy who devours it), but I'm gonna bet...she'd eat that "fruit" in a heartbeat!

Beautiful - great job! I was just thinking that you are probably super organized with all your cutters, food color, sprinkles and such. I love to be in my kitchen and am always looking for more ways to organize my baking things.
Blessings to you!

Your cookies are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I've talked about them to a zillion people here in Atlanta today after seeing them on the internet last night. I have to decorate cookies this Friday for a baby shower on Saturday and mine will pale in comparison but you haven given me something amazing to strive towards! You are a very talented artist! And, I know I was meant to see your site as I am from Kennett, Missouri; went to Mizzou; am a Christian; and, visited an orphanage in Ukraine while on a trip there to visit my friend who was in the Peace Corp in Sevastopol.

Amen and thanks!
Claire
