Grayson loves decorating cookies. She always wants my leftover icing and cookies to decorate herself. So when the time came to pick a theme for her birthday party it was a no-brainer. Even though it was a similar theme to her Cupcake Decorating Party a few years ago.... Here's what... Continue reading

One thing that's nice about kids getting older...they like laid back birthday parties. Boys anyway. Maddox just had a couple of his swimming & class best friends over for a movie and sleepover (or not sleeping-over). I was glad he kept it simple....just the right amount to play xbox and...

Today I thought I'd share a couple of orders from earlier this year. Fruit was the theme of birthday parties this particular week! That's part of the fun of making cookies for people...I get to see all the different party ideas. I love to have an invitation or paper products... Continue reading

Manly and Cookies really don't seem to be two words that go together. But, I think I managed to make this set pretty manly! Chad's birthday is today....the big 41! While he was taking a nap on the couch (with Nascar blaring) I decorated him a few cookies. (I flooded... Continue reading

I'm really new to the cookie making community. It reminds me SO MUCH of how scrapbooking was back 'in the day'. In my quest for knowledge I came across a neat site...Cookie Connection. It's a message board and gallery website for cookie decorators, created by Julia Usher. I'm mostly a... Continue reading

I've been a busy little baker the past few weeks...and just busy. Things are starting to calm down a little. Maddox's swimming has wrapped up & he gets a couple weeks off....as does my taxi service! Sad that it's finally starting to feel like summer just when it's time to... Continue reading

Chad's Aunt Elsa asked me to make some baby boy cookies for a shower she hosted. She sent me a picture of the invitation stationary and slogan for the shower "A New Star in Texas". The invitation was crisp and clean so that's the look I went for with the... Continue reading

Today was a big day...Grayson's first ballet recital. Of course she was looking forward to the make-up the most! I have to admit, it was fun to put mascara on her! We curled, primped and glittered.... ...and it was so worth it! She felt so beautiful and special. And so... Continue reading

I love it when someone asks me for something new...I mean at this point most cookies are 'new to me' but it's fun to do something a little out of the ordinary. These cookies were for a little girl's birthday party. She gave them as treats to her friends. She... Continue reading

I really don't know how to do things 'just a little' it's either all or nothing with me. I got interested in this whole cookie decorating from my sister in law, Brooke, who is uber talented. I had been admiring her cookies for a few years, but never thought I... Continue reading

I used to be a die hard planner girl. Then along came the iphone and ical. I dropped the written planner for digital. But it just never clicked for me. I've made half attempts at keeping both digital and written...but one of them ends up not updated, and things are... Continue reading

I made the really hard decision last month to leave the 2Peas Garden after 12 YEARS on the team. I love that place. I love how it pushed my creativity. I wasn't so crazy about making videos.;) My heart didn't want to say goodbye, but my head knew it was... Continue reading

was pretty much a disaster. With Maddox's swimming everyday after school we don't really have much daylight time. On this particular day he had a band concert, so no swim practice...which left us with about 45 minutes of extra time. We rushed home from school, put on their outfits and... Continue reading

This year we had a Mortal Kombat person (Scorpion I think), John Cena the wrestler, and Fancy Nancy. Quite an assortment! They boys' costumes make me cringe.
