Cat in the Hat Cookies

I've known Tracy for years, having met when our oldest children were in kindergarten.  Tracy loved kids so much that she worked first as an educational assistant and then she went back to school to become a teacher!  She just finished her first full year as a teacher of a grade 6/7 split class and the passion she has for these kids is incredible.  Months ago she contacted me to arrange end of year cookies for her class.  What was the inspiration for these cookies and the message to her students?  Dr. Seuss' "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"  Each cookie bag was closed with a ribbon and a "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" tag.  I hope your children will one day have a teacher with as much spirit and passion for their profession, and that your children find their life's dream profession too!

Thank You Apple Cookies for Teachers

Another school year has almost come to a close.  Many children are looking forward to a relaxing summer break and have one last day to honour their teachers.  Based on the number of "Thank You" apples and plaques sold in the past week, many Bradford teachers will be thanked with Sweet Handmade cookies this year.  Happy summer!

Sweet Pea Baby Shower Cookies

Little Brezlynn was finally meeting her family in Canada, and her Grandmother Mary-Lynn contacted me to create cookies for the special day.  With a sweet pea/purple and green theme in mind, this is the design we settled on - baby asleep in the pea pod, her name written as a vine across the top with purple flowers hanging down.  Each of the 50 cookies was individually wrapped and tied with a purple ribbon.  I heard that it was a fantastic day!

Simcoe Dance Academy Trophy and Logo Cookies

My girls have been dancing at Simcoe Dance Academy for many years and my reward for driving them to and from lessons each week is the year end recital.  What a spectacular show this incredible dance school puts on each year.  In our small town it is so easy to know so many of the dancers and watching them is just a jaw-dropping experience.

Sandra wanted to say thank you to the owner of the studio as well as the teachers and commissioned me to create cookies for this occasion.  They were a hit!

Bridal Shower Cookies - Diamonds and Pearls

Alison, a recent bride and Sweet Handmade bridal shower cookie recipient, was hosting a bridal shower for one of her best friends, Jill.  She contacted me to create cookies for Jill's special event, knowing how well they were received at her shower.

The theme for her friend's shower was "Diamonds and Pearls" and so these are the cookies I came up with (with a little inspiration from cookie artist Clough'd).  Wishing Jill and her groom a wonderful wedded life!

Thank You Cookies for Obstetrician

The mother of two lovely children, Mya and 6 week old Gavin, Nicole wanted to bring a special thank you cookie set to her Obstetrician at her final appointment.  Her relationship with her doctor was filled with humour, so the cookie set could be too, which explains the "blood splatter" cookies!

Running Shoe Cookies

A group of marathon runners were gathering for some non-running fun and wanted a hit of well earned sugar.  Served to them in the shape of running shoes, some of the inspiration for these delicious designs came from my husband's ever growing running shoe collection.

Flower and Hummingbird Cookies

This tray of beautiful cookies was made for a group of ladies as an appreciation.  I took a little liberty in the design and added the hummingbirds which were a welcome surprise.  I personally love the colours!
