Easter 2016




My Easter cookies this year were a bit of a departure from my usual "cute" designs, not a chubby bunny or carrot in sight!

Last year, when I hand cut some Stargazer Lily cookies, I really liked them but the shapes were a bit strange.  I opted to purchase a lily cutter and design "pretty" cookies for the family this year.



A few pastel bunnies and water color eggs with pearls and gold lustre dust completed the platter for our family dinner.



Of course, I couldn't completely abandon my preference for "cute" cookies, so I made some chick puzzles for the younger children.


The cookies were bagged and tagged with a verse to inspire their creativity.


Finally, I couldn't resist making a few of these adorable little lambs inspired by Mike at Semi-Sweet Designs.  Mike has a template available, however, since I do not have a Kopykake, I did them free hand.


Happy Easter!  Happy Spring!

Willy Wonka

This weekend the "Friends of Thorp Scholastic Academy" will host their annual dinner and silent auction to benefit the school.  My niece, Jody, is an active volunteer and asked for my help to create a display to highlight the prize that was donated by a very generous teacher--dinner and laser tag for 4.  I just love the generosity of our teachers and parents!!!!!!

It has been a long time since I have seen the Willy Wonka movie, so I had to do some research to remember the characters.  Jody created the clever golden ticket which lists the prize and we eventually decided  a tower of cookies and candy would be a nice back drop for the special ticket.

Jody always creates amazing birthday parties for her children, and now  her skills are being used to create great celebrations for the school.  I keep telling her she could start a new career as a party planner.

  
Ready to Party!
