Practice Makes Perfect

I volunteered to make a dozen table centerpieces for Damascus High School's baseball banquet and have been playing around with some ideas.

They'll have baseballs in them, of course, and I thought the baseball jersey would be easy to include too. But when it comes to Damascus High School sports you've got to have the hornet. I played around with the idea for days--I've never decorated a cookie with so much detail, and the extent of my artistic ability is drawing a stick figure.

Today was practice day. They actually don't look too bad. I'll make a few adjustments when I decorate the real thing, and then they should be perfect!

I find myself looking at things when I'm out and about and thinking "wow, I could make that into a cookie!"

The paisley print in the napkin inspired me to make these. They'll be a perfect addition to my Tastefully Simple party next Friday evening. Cookies and cocktails with the ladies--doesn't get much better than that!

Tulips in Bloom

These tulips are quite versitile: Bunches for Denice and Amy (my two favorite secretaries for Administrative Professional's Day), for Melody's birthday, for Monica whose favorite flowers are tulips and who just had the most beautiful baby girl, and for Kendall (my #1 cookie and cupcake fan) who saves me many car trips by driving my son home. I usually "pay" her with a cookie or cupcake when she drops him off, but my freezer has been bare lately.

I made this bouquet for a silent auction to benefit DABL (Damascus Area Baseball League). I was given free reign on the design. It would have been very easy to go with the baseball theme, but I thought this would reach out to more people. It is just as much fun to tie die cookies as it is to do real shirts!
