|Not a great photo - pearlized color was doing odd things|
for the camera! The ribbon stencil was purchased
from SalsaSweets and the cute puzzle cookie
cutter was scored during my visit to Orson Gygi
in Salt Lake City!
For a cloudy, bordering on drizzly, day...it was a really great turn-out! My offerings this year were puzzle-shaped Marshmallow Krispie Treats - 2 dozen were boxed up for prizes...and some cookies of course!
|I scored several fabulous boxes from BRP Box Shop|
in my CookieCon swag bag - used them to package
up the door prize drawing I was contributing.
I have collected puzzle ribbon wherever I could
find it for the past two years (because it is quite
scarce during April each year). The coastal cookies
were wrapped in some beautiful ribbon from
Ribbon by Design - a vendor and sponsor at CookieCon!
Both BRP and RBD are awesome to work with.
I made a box of coastal cookies, some "Light it Up Blue" ribbon cookies, and a couple of boxes of puzzle cookies, stenciled with a puzzle stencil. It was a lot of fun playing with my airbrush!
|I got a new palm tree cutter that is much larger than the|
two I already had - they made some pretty palm trees I think!
I'm fairly certain I got those at Gygi as well!
|I loved my puzzle cookies - puzzles on puzzles!|
Stencil from the great selection at the Etsy shop
Artfully Designed Creations.
One of my suitcases coming back from CookieCon held all
of my cookie goodies and CC swag...
which included (but was certainly not limited to)
five bags of sanding sugar which I knew I would need
for these cookies I was planning to bake.
My hair is frizzy from the humidity but my heart is joyful from seeing so many people out on a sort-of-dreary day to support the hope that our autistic family members become integrated and accepted into local activities, daily life, and are treated just like everyone else. That's really all we want - for them to be accepted just the way they are. They are unique and special people with a LOT to offer our community (and communities everywhere). You can help make it happen. Just accept them!

Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
