For all you Dr. Who fans here are some Dr. Who sugar cookies I did for a friend. I had to use something from my favorite Dr. Who – Matt Smith. Who is your favorite Dr. Who?
Here are samples of the Christmas sugar cookies that I did this year. The following are miniature (bite size) cookies that I did. I did a few Christmas sugar cookie bouquets.
Ok, I’m going to admit something that an adult female should probably not admit, but here it goes…. I love to play Mario Kart! I have a friend in another state that also enjoys the game as much as I do. Every once in a while we set up a time to play Mario Kart together over the wi-fi. Because this friend is my biggest supporter as far as my sugar cookies adventure, I wanted to make her some special sugar cookies for her birthday. So I decided to make her some – can you guess…. some Mario Kart sugar cookies!
This title could refer to different things – I think we all have events in our lives that we could refer to as “new beginnings”. I had the opportunity to create sugar cookie bouquets and individual sugar cookies for a few of the LDS young women organizations in my area. Every year they have a special program called New Beginnings. The young women’s organization has eight values (faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue) and each value is represented by a color. So deciding on what colors to use was very easy for me this time! This first bouquet was for a New Beginnings program where each value was represented by a puzzle piece and they discussed how those pieces fit together in their lives. There are 8 puzzle pieces, one for each value, and in the center is the LDS Salt Lake Temple. The hardest part of the bouquet was figuring out how to fit choice & accountability on the cookie. The next bouquet is of sugar cookie flowers done in the 8 young women value colors. I also prepared small bags with 8 mini sugar cookie flowers in the value colors to be handed out to the young women.
Well, it has been a while since I posted. In November I was diagnosed with breast cancer. From that point forward things moved very quickly. Now I know what Dorothy felt like in that tornado – things whirling in fast motion and taking you to a place you weren’t expecting. Except I didn’t go to see the Wizard, I got to see lots of doctors. For what it is, I feel very blessed. I caught the cancer very early and was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. I only had to do four rounds of chemo. I had my first round on December 20th. I kept telling people it was my Christmas Chemo. In February I finished my last round of chemo and to thank the wonderful nurses that worked with me, I decided to make them cookies! Of course I had to do pink breast cancer awareness cookies. I did pink ribbon sugar cookies. And because I had recently purchased some new fancy frame cookie cutters I wanted to do sugar cookies with the words that are associated with breast cancer – Faith, Hope, Courage, Strength. I tried to tie the pink ribbon on the bag to look like a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon. I tried to do some with a little different design. The words on the pink and white didn’t show up very well, so I added a little glitter to them so see if I could make the words pop. I am very thankful for the many caring medical professionals that I am working with. The sugar cookies were just a small token that I could give them to tell them thank you for everything they have done so far.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted. November and December were a whirlwind for me, but that will be another post. During life’s disruptions I did manage to make some Christmas cookies. I stuck with what I considered to be very basic and easy to create designs. I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and I hope that the new year brings many blessings and much joy for all of us. Enough from me – enjoy the pictures: The following is a cookie that I created to give to the Young Women that I work with in church. It went along with our lesson on the nativity:
