remember the village people and that song? and how it's played at practically every wedding? well, i recently did some custom wedding cookies for a couple with a really unique and fun invitation suite, all designed by the groom.

and the cookies to match...

i also did the church and custom wedding cake toppers of the bride and groom

it was so much fun to work on this project. thanks erin and pat! congratulations!!

royal wedding

yes, i have to admit, i am little excited about the royal wedding. i don't know why, maybe because it's playing out like a real fairytale...a commoner marrying a prince and all. i didn't have a chance to make royal wedding cookies but here's some of my faves from some very talented cookiers.

these are gorgeous from katie's something sweet...

and i love this interpretation too...don't you just love the car???? from a dozen eggs bake shoppe
i'm sure you have seen all the crazy souveniers out there, too. this is one of my faves, Prince William and KaTea RoyalTea Tea Bags available here...
will you be watching the royal wedding?

may day

when i was little i remember our babysitter receiving a pretty little basket on her doorstep on may 1st. the delivery "boy" rang her doorbell and then quickly ran so he wouldn't be discovered. it was such a sweet surprise for her. i'm not sure why people stopped this lovely tradition. why not revive it by placing a cute basket at the doorstep of someone you love. i'm sure it will make their day...

here's some cute, simple ideas from martha stewart and of course a cookie version from me!

let me know if you give/receive a may day basket this year!

alex's lemonade stand

my daughter's kindergarten class had an alex's lemonade stand at their school's craft fair this past weekend. i made some cute little lemon cookies for the kids to sell. they raised almost $500!!! what a great job! all money goes to fighting childhood cancer which is cause dear to my heart. our 9-yr old son, max, was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 21-months old. he underwent 3 1/2 years of chemotherapy. this coming november will mark five years since his final treatment and he will be considered "cured!"

here's ben, max and lily at the lemonade stand

here's max in december 2003, four months into his treatment
i'm feeling very grateful today.
