Weekly Cookie Recap

Happy Valentines Week, friends! What a wonderful week full of cookies this has been for me. My house is bursting with the smell of fresh baked cookies decorated for all kinds of wonderful events this week.. don’t y’all just love the smell (and taste!) of fresh baked cookies?!

 

Starting this week I had Valentine cookie pickups. I offered several different cookie sets for everyone to choose from. They made a perfect, affordable, gift for teachers and kids that everyone was sure to love!  Locals, please visit my Facebook  page to order cookies for your next holiday or special event!

This was my first year to do Valentines cookies. I began this Cookie endeavor in May of 2017 so this is all new territory for me. But with any new cookie and cookie holiday, comes a challenge, and that is exactly why I wanted to get into this craft.

 

Moving on, this next set was for a preschool Valentine’s Day party a few days after Valentines. I used my SweetSugarbelle heart cutter to create these. I love the sizing of these cutters. I also love the combination of these colors. They look soft and cohesive.  On these, and all of my other Valentine cookies, I used sprinkles from Sprinkled.  Remember, you can read my review on these sprinkles over on my post: Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkle Mix GIVEAWAY. And don’t forget you can use my code, Brittany20, and get 20% off!

I also did sports cookies for a sweet little boy’s birthday! He loves basketball, football, soccer, and baseball. I was so glad I could make these for him and hope he loves them as much as I do!

 

This mermaid set has got to be one of my favorite mermaid sets. I love all the details, especially the fin details on the mermaid tail that I achieved with my airbrush.  If you look close, you can see glitter in the name cookie. Plus who doesn’t love these beautiful mermaid colors?!

I also got to make cookies for a 30th birthday bash in Nashville!  I loved the super girly colors and Nashville inspired cowgirl boots and guitar I used.  Not to mention, the state of Tennessee turned out so cute.  I could see this cookie being perfect for other events like tailgates for UT games, great for someone moving, or even great for a graduate!

This last set was for a friend from high school. I just have to stop here just a minute and tell you how much a friend supporting your little business means. Seriously! It is the ultimate compliment to have a friend buy your cookies. Okay back to her beautiful baby shower cookies.. I love the theme and colors and think the pot of gold is perfect in pink.  The pot of gold was made from a honey pot cookie cutter, my sweet cookie friend suggested it and I think it works perfectly! Congratulations sweet friend on your sweet girl’s upcoming arrival!

That’s all for this week. Thank y’all for catching up each week for my weekly recaps.

I’d love to know where my readers are reading my posts.. leave a comment below with your state or country!

Updating My Closet

I’ve been working on cleaning out my closet as part of a way to get more organized this year.  I realized when going through my closet I had so many clothes that no longer fit, due to the fact I’ve had a baby and nothing goes back to “normal” after a baby, and so many of my clothes are what I wore when I worked in an office.  I rarely wear business casual clothing anymore.  My casual look is typically jeans and a top or if I’m getting extra fancy it’s yoga pants (just kidding.. not really!).  And now that I’m a momma I cannot spend hours searching in my favorite stores when I need to update my closet.  So I’ve quickly fallen in love with online shopping.  One of my favorite stores to shop for me is Old Navy.  I find that their products are affordable, trendy, and they make their pants in short/ankle sizes so they are perfect for someone who is 5’3″.

These are a few of the things I’m planning on getting to update my closet while we transition into spring here in the south.

Workout Wear on Jane

I’m working on updating my workout wear (aka my Mom uniform that I wear even when I’m not working out.. shhh no one ever actually knows if I’ve been to the gym). So I’m turning to my favorite site. I love shopping for a good deal so this is the place to go.

Seriously, that’s a 81% savings. These are already in my cart! The link is here because they won’t last long: http://shrsl.com/reht

These rings are beautiful. I always wear my wedding rings to the gym. Am I the only woman who does this? It makes me feel more comfortable. Plus I love wearing my rings and what they symbolize for my marriage. But I’m always so afraid I might scratch them with weights. I can get these silicone stackable rings and not worry about ruining my “real” rings. Plus the color options are great! Did I mention it’s a 6 pack of rings? So many color combos, I’m getting the Women’s April Set colored ones! They are only $8.99, from 19.99. Hurry and grab a set using this link: http://shrsl.com/rf9s
