Christmas Cookies

I made these last year for gift giving…

Santa

Gift idea: Adorable Santa cookie with a $5 Starbucks gift card attached:)…

…I’m posting Christmas cookie ideas tonight because…

I’m starting to take orders, and soon…

I’ll stop taking orders.

So if you want me to make you cookies…

for your party or gift giving…

I’ve put some cookie photos from last year under COOKIE EXAMPLES…

Check them out, and then call me to chat about it:)

Thursday was a beautiful day…

Among the many reasons: I spent several hours…

taking pictures in Huntington…

to paint…

You’ll be seeing those paintings in the coming weeks…

Cookie Decorating is Fun!!

“You’re welcome!” Jennifer Garner humbly responded on “Ellen”

when asked about her husband’s nude scene in Gone Girl…

I’m taking her lead…

YOU’RE WELCOME!!!

Of course, it’s not about my husband…lol…

I’ve taught SIX Cookie Decorating 101 classes in the last few weeks…

New December Workshops are Posted

Christmas set elegant

I love that so many people want to learn cookie art, and

I’m thrilled that I enjoy teaching it so much, so…

I’ve posted new December workshops…

under WORKSHOPS…

I’ve changed several things…

#1… I will be donating a portion of December’s workshop fee

to Maggie’s Mermaids…

#2…I’ve increased the time to 4 hours…

It takes longer than I thought when I planned the fall workshops…

#3…I’ve increased the cost of the workshop because I now have a better idea

the time involved to create the workshops…

#4…I’m willing to do large groups at their location…

I’ve been asked by several organizations to do that…

and I think it’s a pretty cool idea…

#5…I’m not doing evening or Saturday classes at my home…

my family is not crazy about the idea…

#5…One of the December flavors is gingerbread…yum:)
