INSPIRE 2019 Back-To-School Decorated Cookie Collection

I know, I know……no one wants to think about summer being over and school starting back (except maybe mom! haha). But school starts in a few weeks….so it’s time to get INSPIRED. :)

It’s funny…..I homeschooled my kids. So they were never in a “real” classroom. And yet, I really LOVE doing back to school cookies.

As has become my pattern…..I don’t want to just create a bunch of random cookies. I really want each collection to convey a message. INSPIRE is this collection’s theme. It’s my desire every day to inspire others the way God has inspired me to keep at this CRAZIE hobby I have. What better purpose in life than to inspire others to greatness……

CookieCrazie's Week in Review



Personal Side

I'm writing this ahead of time as I wait to depart for the airport on Wednesday.

We are headed to Ukraine in just a few hours!

I don't know what my wifi situation will be like on Friday,

so I decided just get this all loaded up to automatically post today.

It has been a whirlwind week.

Sadly, I injured my lower back on Saturday and was in so much pain and limited movement,

that I really didn't think I was going to get to go on the trip.

I could hardly bend over....and putting on my socks was excruciating (and nearly impossible)!

But thankfully God orchestrated lots of help for me.

I work in a chiropractic office now, and the doctors and physical therapist are like family.

They took good care of me on Monday and Tuesday.

I believe I had every treatment know to mankind for lower back pain. ;)

And I'm happy to share that in just 48 hours, my back has improved remarkably.

I'm still not 100%, but I'm getting there.

I'm a bit concerned about the long flight overseas.....having to sit too much for long periods of time.

But I'm armed with supplements, exercises, and lots of good advice. :)

This is my ninth trip to Ukraine.

I am so excited to return and greet all of our family there.

It is like a huge family reunion....and they are all so kind to us.

What a privilege God has given me to serve them.... but the truth be told, THEY serve US.

My perspective is always moved to a better place as I go there.

I remember what is most important and am humbled

by the genuine, humble, & content people we visit.

The trip is hard work.....and sometimes grueling.....but worth everything!

It is like a huge amazing Christmas present every year.

I look forward to see what God has in store for all of us.

I'll share as much as I can.

Hopefully I can get some photos and updates posted to Instagram and Facebook.

And of course, I'll dedicate a whole blog post to the trip and the cookies I made for the Ukrainians. :)

Thank you for all your support, love, and encouragement.

Isn't it amazing what cookies can do?!

Clipboard Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

How about a clipboard cookie to celebrate the new school year?

The shape is simple......a wide rectangle.

Outline and flood the entire cookie with a light brown glaze.

 After an hour of dry time, outline and flood the center of the rectangle with white glaze

to represent notebook paper.

(see photo below)

After another hour of dry time, add gray glaze as shown below for the silver clip.

Dry cookies overnight.

 Make a mixture of silver dust with almond extract or vodka and paint over the gray clip.

To create the notebook paper look, add blue horizontal lines and 

one pink vertical line as shown below.

(Here are the markers I used.) 

If desired, use a black food color marker to add a message on the "clipboard".
