Personalized Turtle & Octopus Cookies

Sometimes it's hard to just keep swimming isn't it?
Giving up is definitely the easier option...
I guess it comes down to how bad you want to get to the place your going...
Remember that baby steps are better than no steps...
So just keep swimming!  
You'll be so glad you did!

Graduation Class of 2014 Cookies

I swear it doesn't seem like a year has gone by
since I've done graduation cookies...
It's already time to celebrate the Class of 2014...
That's a far cry from 1988 when I graduated...
But if you really stop and think about it...
not a whole lot has changed in terms of graduation...
Perhaps fancier pictures & invitations...
But caps...gowns...commencement...
it's relatively still the same tradition...
So be prepared to lots of these pretties in the next few weeks!

Does anyone really sleep at a slumber party?
I remember it was way more fun staying up...
You can sleep when you get home, right?
Put these pretties over your eyes and start dreaming...

Unicorn Cookies

Oh Mr. Unicorn...
I'd like to go on an adventure to a magical land...
maybe one where I could snap my fingers 
and have all my orders done in the blink of an eye...
especially since I have 25 dozen cookies to do this week...
I'm ready to go...
Mr. Unicorn...
Where are you?

Lilly Pulitzer Shift Dress Cookies and The Masters

The Masters...
The most coveted golf tournament...
Steeped in tradition...beautiful scenery...pimento cheese sandwiches...
Just a few things that I'm going to indulge in...
I'm so excited to be heading up to Augusta today...
I worked hard to get Sweet Goosie Girl things done...
so I can enjoy and not be completely overwhelmed when I get back...
Lilly would be the perfect attire to wear...
However, I'm going to opt for sleeves this time...
Maybe a green jacket?

Pink & Green Lilly Inspired Turtle Cookies

Slow and steady wins the race...
I'm always having to remind myself of this...
Most of the time I'm hurry, hurry and then I become exhausted...
Consistency is the key...
Continuously working at improving is what to strive for...
and it helps to add some pink & green to the mix too!

Colon Cancer Awareness Cookies

I had the honor of making these for a dear friend whom I used to teach with...
Her precious daughter organized a team for a fundraising walk/run
to raise money for colon cancer...
Their slogan was "get your rear in gear" 
and of course Mickey had to be a part of it...
She ADORES Mickey and Walt Disney and her classroom was filled it and "Believe"...
so needless to say those two items needed to be on the cookies...
Let's believe that a cure will be found soon!
