Making Good on the Cookie Front

Can you tell which one is cookies? :)  Yeah, I know, my lettering needs a little work 

The latest cookie mosaic, for a staff party at Adoption Star compliments of their Executive Director, Michele Fried - obviously a woman of good taste! And I was doing double duty and hopefully have a new recruit for Team LUNA Chix! 

And these were to make good on the basket raffle item from the 'Cure Me I'm Irish' fundraiser held in memory of Melina Riniolo by her friends and family of 'Melina's White Light'

Melina's Mom, Lisa, actually won my basket and true to "mom" form requested the cookies so she could have them as a thank you for all the girls that helped out with the fundraiser.
At Lisa's request I made more sunflowers along with butterflies that I couldn't quite get to for the fundraiser.  The 'prize basket' also included some non-cutouts and she foolishly trusted my judgement!  But I went with a few of the 'greatest hits' from the cookie project including the ever popular Mint Frosted Chocolate Cookies and Lemon Coconut Meringues! 

Hoping they didn't disappoint! It was great to meet Lisa and with any luck, yet another recruit for the Chix!

Gilda's Club Birdhouse Sale!

Going on TODAY (April 15th) from 12:30 to 6:30 down at Gilda's Club on the corner of Delaware & W. Ferry.  I just stopped down there and WOW, do all the birdhouses look great!  I've never really had a birdhouse, but I 'Need' a few of them now! ... SO CUTE!  Here's some cookies to follow the theme:
Getting ready - this was only about HALF the colors! (Notice it's light out when I started!)
These Daisies are some of my favorites to do (cute AND easy!)
Ran out of time to detail the leaves, but I still like the Tulips

Required birds in keeping with the theme - these were fun! 

Ready to wrap! (Note: at this point it is no longer 'light out' and
hasn't been for a very long time!)

Tulips & Daisies my favorite 'pairing'

Finished product - The birdhouses were like snowflakes - no two were the same
(and not a lot of pics cause they weren't my favorite) Apologies to Gilda's in that
they don't do justice to all the super cute Birdhouses they have for sale -
but these do taste better! :)

Lots of cookies, doing lots of good!

I had SO much fun doing this and some other gourmet cookies for farmer 'Grandpa Buds 90th birthday' ... Thanks SO much to Sarah for the donation to The Ride for Roswell!

And seeing how I don't discriminate among good causes, hopefully these cookies helped Debbie Rankie-Mcpeek and her Ultimate Cuts team raise a few bucks towards their 24 hour walk in June - The Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society.

And finally - cookies just for fun!  Congrats to Ryan & Leo on the birth of their daughter, Charlee Margaret! (I think I was just looking for an excuse to do 'baby girl' cookies!
