Living with HOPE Decorated Cookie Collection

As many of you know I’ve been battling breast cancer since August 2018. It’s been a challenging time……and yet I’ve learned so much and am thankful for all the blessings that have overwhelmed me during this intense time.

Thankfully I have been able to continue to decorate cookies. Even though it’s not been as much as normal…..it has definitely been an essential part of my healing. I try to fit it in as much as possible. I find such comfort and peace while decorating……a truly happy place.
It distracts me from reality for a bit and provides pure joy. :)

I’m feeling led to move in a direction of creating designs that reflect where my heart is these days. It helps to be surrounded by positive, truthful themes.
So here’s my first installment of cookies with a message….

HOPE……it is so important in everyone’s life. But it is especially crucial when you face a life-threatening situation. So this time……I dwell on the hope that God gives me that we will eradicate all the cancer…..or at least stop it from growing so that I can live a healthy life and carry out all the purposes God still has for me here on earth. My faith and trust are in Him. 🙏🏻❤️

“Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope.
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.”
Psalm 119:49-50

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Classic Valentines Decorated Cookie Collection

Awwww……classic Valentines. I’m always drawn back to them. They remind me of sitting down with my kids every year with a tableful of doilies, colored paper, stickers, glitter, etc and going crazy making Valentines for each family member. They loved it! It was an arts and crafts day along with a big ‘ole family tradition all wrapped into one. Good memories.

Sending you all affection and gratitude on this very special day to share LOVE.

Happy Valentines Day!

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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!!!
