Merry Christmas!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season!

These "Joy" cookies were inspired by the talented Christy from Dolce.

Great jingle bell design from Sweet Sugar Belle!

Redpath Sugar Cookies

The title of this post is a bit of word-play.  Are they cookies for Redpath Sugar or cookies made with Redpath Sugar?  Well, the answer is both!  As you know, I have been a huge fan of Redpath Sugar for a long, long time and love to work with all of their products.  These logo cookies were created for a corporate event a few weeks back.

Doctor Who Inpired Tardis Cookies

Emma is a big-time Doctor Who fan!  Her mom arranged for a gift of Tardis cookies for her birthday and Emma had no idea what she was getting when she came to pick them up.  Her reaction was amazing and she loved them!

PH Fundraiser with Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal Cookies

I met Ruth in the change room at my local pool.  We share a love for swimming, a certain brand of undergarments (this is what happens when you spend a lot of time together in various states of dress and undress) and motherhood.  Ruth has also shared her family's journey with Pulmonary Hypertension, a disease that affects one of her daughters.  There is just something about Ruth that makes me want to make a difference in her daughter's life and for the cause of Pulmonary Hypertension.

November was Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month and Ruth helped to organize a couple of fundraising events at our local Leisure Centre.  There was both a swim-a-thon and a walk-a-thon with prizes for the top fundraisers and top swimmers/walkers.  The top swimmer swam an amazing 910 laps (22 3/4 kilometers) in a week!  I participated in the swim-a-thon and while I only reached a quarter of the winner's distance, we all had a great time swimming, meeting at the pool during the week at odd times to get more distance in and cheering each other on!

We all gathered poolside at 6:45 am last Thursday (cutting our swim class short) to award the winners.  It was a great cause and a great way to raise money.  People worked really hard - and some of them did it just because of cookies!  In the end over $1500 was raised and we all can't wait until next year.  Here are some of my friends wearing their cookies medals!!
