Happy Day Decorated Cookie Collection

I love to squeeze a birthday set amongst all the season cookies sets made throughout the year.

This one is named “Happy Day” because my sweet granddaughter, Emmy, said this very phrase at the end of the day on her first birthday. It almost made me want to cry to hear her say those words. I’m not sure she understood what she was saying…..but it truly was a HAPPY day. :)

Be sure to treasure each one. I’ve learned that each moment is a gift. There are no guarantees of tomorrow. Make today ALL that it can be. It may not always be happy, but it can be meaningful in every way. :)

❤️❤️❤️

Christmas Joy Decorated Sugar Cookie Collection

If you’ve followed my site for long, you know that I decorate seasonal cookies far ahead of schedule…..just to be on top of blog posts, tutorials, classes, etc. So this final set of Christmas cookies for 2018 was created back in September.

August and September of 2018 have been a crazy time for me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and found myself with a new “full time job” of fighting cancer. I barely had any time to decorate cookies. But I was determined to do as many sets as I could despite the lack of time and energy.

The day after I finished these cookies, I had my surgery (mastectomy). I remember putting the final touches on these cookies and pushing myself to get them done because I wasn’t sure when I would get back to decorating.

These are definitely not my best work….and the photos were hurried and forced. But they are part of my journey. I guess it is interesting to chronicle your life by cookies. ;)

Christmas holds such a special place in my heart. And I’m glad I got to dwell on all it means while I contemplated one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. These little bites of joy brought delight and distraction to my heart as I dreaded the upcoming procedure. And it makes my heart happy that I was able to do something I love despite the circumstances. ❤️

May our Christmas season be especially blessed as we contemplate what life really means and cherish every moment we are given.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Emmy's Flower-y 1st Birthday Cookie Collection

Emmy (my second grandchild and first granddaughter) had her first birthday recently. It was a small gathering of family to celebrate, but we celebrated her in a BIG way. She's a precious sweet doll who manages to make everyone smile.

Her mom wanted a pink flower theme to celebrate her birthday. I pulled out all the stops to make the cookies as flower-y and pink as possible. 💗

I had some new tools to try out in the process, so they were fully incorporated into the design.

Both of my grandchildren haven't had refined sugar yet, so for Emmy's birthday, I modified my sugar cookie recipe and made it gluten and sugar free. The cookies turned out great!

Sadly, I attempted to make a "glaze" that was sugar free......but since sugar is the predominate ingredient (powdered sugar and corn syrup), the substitutes were no match at all. I was hugely disappointed. I ended up decorating the cookies with regular sugary glaze and left some of the cookies plain for the grandbabies. In the end, it worked. 

I'm still on a quest to find a way to decorate cookies without the sugar. I'll let you know if I ever conquer that one. 🙃

Happy Birthday my sweet Emmy Lou Who. I love you so much!!!

Neon Sign Styled Birthday Decorated Cookies

I'm loving this neon sign style of cookies.
It's simplicity and whimsical results get me everytime.
Why not use it to celebrate a birthday?


It all began with this set of coffee related cookies shown below.
Check out the link for a tutorial on how to create the style.

You may or may not be seeing this technique again in future cookie sets..... ;)
