Spring Flowers

I am going to Chicago this weekend to visit with cousins on my husbands side and do some research on the family. i have been working with a nice man over the phone with the La Salle County Genealogy Guild and decided to make some treats for the staff and my cousins.

Of course I packaged some up for the airline crew as well! We fly free as airline retirees and my daughter Michelle is a flight attendant for Virgin America. I love to make treats for the crew when we fly and send them along on her trips when she is working. The crew always appreciates getting homemade goodies from Michelle’s mom!

Spring Fling Cookie Camp in Louisville, Kentucky

I have been waiting to attend this fun cookie decorating conference in Louisville, KY since October. I belong to an online cookie forum with many others who share my passion for baking cookies. It was organized by Karen and May of CookieTwoShoes.com and they have some great plans for us and have secured some amazing instructors.

Day 1: Thursday, I’m flying with my cookie friend Debbie (www.sweetcreationsbydebbie.com) who I met last year on the cookie forum and learned she lives not too far from me. Her cookies are amazing and beautifully detailed. We are flying from Orange County Airport and when we switch planes in Phoenix another online cookie friend Jackie (www.thecookiecorneraz.com) is joining us as we continue onto Louisville . Jackie’s cookies are beautiful and she packages them so cute too!

Music Cookies

I made this first set for my daughters friend who is a violinist and just moved into a new home in Austin, TX.

I made the second set of cookies for mom to share with her friends at the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans. I wanted to keep the colors light and shimmery and added luster dust for some sparkle.
