Ballet Cookies {tutus and slippers}

I took Ballet growing up for over 12 years. To this day I still miss it, and every time we visit family back in Utah I put on my old point shoes and spin around my old bedroom.. and then I remember that I'm really out of shape compared to back then and my toes aren't quite as strong (and then I shed a little tear, cause that's a wee bit depressing ;) jk). 

The woman who ordered these from me got them for her granddaughters dance recital. Is that not the cutest idea?! She said she got her a tap shoe last year and she loved it so much she wanted to do it again this year. 

By the way, the more I read my favorite cookie blogs the more I realize just what a terrible blogger I am. I really want to do tutorials and post more frequently but it just doesn't seem to happen! I do however have the excuse of a 3 and 2 year old, a husband in Law School, myself in school and pregnant with our third baby. That's got to count for something, right?

But I'll really shoot for the stars here and try to post at least 1 tutorial this summer. We'll see if it happens!

Mother's Day Cookies {roses and bird cages}

We have lived in Virginia now for almost 4 and a half years, and in that time I have never sent cookies to my mom or my mother-in-law. I have meant to so many times but somehow life (and many orders!) have gotten in the way. 

I finally decided I HAD to send them both a little surprise and Mother's Day was the perfect time for me to do that! 

I think I was more excited for them to get these cookies than any other order I have ever done. Seriously. I love being able to make something to show the people I love how much they mean to me. And what says 'I love you' more than a cookie? Nothing, I tell you.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there! Especially mine :)

Decorated Cookies for The Aba Agency

 These cookies were so fun to make. I only wish I would have had time to take more pictures but I took them 10 minutes before running out the door to deliver!

Thank you, Aba, again for another order! I have loved working with you.

and go check out The Aba Agency. They're pretty awesome!
