Getting Organized

Hi Ya'll!

I have finally..finally...finally gotten my upstairs office all worked out thanks to my wonderful hubby:) When I moved out of my shop about six months ago I had no time to stop and get myself properly organized with an office. I had too many orders to do and the holidays were coming up so the office got put on hold. So now six months later my office is finally coming along. There is still work that needs to be done to it but at least I can work in here on my projects instead of working downstairs in the dining room like I was doing before. The hubby is happy because now our first floor looks like a regular house again with the exception of the cake displays I have around (I couldn't help myself lol). I have been working in the office all of this week and it has helped me concentrate more (no tv in the office) so I am producing more in a shorter amount of time. I also like it because it is on the 2nd floor of the house and my son can play in his room and I check in on him with just a few short steps:)

Once I have it all finished I will post some pictures but its not at that point yet..I still have more go to but I am happy with the results so far.

Now on to today's topic.. which is cookies! Yes I know I don't talk about cookies that often and that is because people assume that since I do cakes and cupcakes I don't do decorated cookies..which is quite the opposite I love when I get cookie orders. And most orders come from my repeat clients who want something different to go along with their cake order. Well these sweet cookies below were requested by a repeat client of mine J, back in March for the birth of his second girl. He wanted the cookies to pass out to friends who stopped by his house when they brought the baby home (soo cute I know;) He had a few requests that they be jerseys, the color lavender (absolutely no pink he said) and have the family last name on them. So I chose lavender and white as a color scheme and added some luster dust and flower to make them more feminine. In the end I like the way they came out and he loved them.

I also made 2 onesie cookies for the now "big sister". I only have one child but I know from friends and family that some times the older child feels left out during the birth of a new baby. So this was my way of making her feel special too. 

Now its time for me to go do some baking... 
Until then 
Peace & Blessings
