"Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;

Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
'Til in Heaven the deed appears -
Pass it on.
~Henry Burton, Pass It On

It's simply amazing how someone you've only just met can change your life forever.  A few weeks back....fate introduced us to some amazing people.  We didn't know them by name...but they opened their arms and hearts to us without hesitation.  Our paths may not meet again...but the generosity they showed us will not be forgotten.   We are forever grateful.  These cookies are just a SMALL token of our incredible appreciation.

Thank you Sugarbelle and A Dozen Eggs for the inspiration behind the designs of these cookies.

Hip Baby Cookies

When I saw this design....I couldn't wait to try it!  I loved the bright pinks against the black tones...and it seemed like the perfect cookie for all those trendy new mamas!

I have to apologize to my source... I found this cookie design on the internet and printed the picture, and just tossed it in my "fav cookie designs" file, only to discover that I didn't write down the source.  I think I found it on flickr...but I am wishing I could credit the original decorator for her amazing design!!!!

Searching through my files has also reminded me that I desperately NEED to organize my cookie files.  I finally found a great way to organize my cutters....(oops...still need to take a picture of that system), but need to better organize my design idea folders and template folders.....it will definitely be an ongoing and lengthy project, but well worth it in the end.

Anyhow... hope all those new mamas to baby girls enjoyed these fun little cookies!  I'm a  bit behind on my postings... but hoping I can play catch up and put a few more cookie posts up before the end of the week:)

Some lunchbox love....

I am sending my oldest off to SECOND grade tomorrow with some of these...

She has met her teacher....

and laid out her neatly ironed uniform alongside her new shoes, still with that new shoe smell.

And I pray...

that she wakes up each day with the same First day enthusiasm that she will have tomorrow.

 Hope her year is full of new knowledge,  special friends, and sweet memories.
