Valentine’s Day is just one month away now…Which is hard to believe since the mild weather and lack of snow has made this “winter’ seem more like spring! Haha. But either way, we’re halfway through January and Valentine’s Day is … Continue reading
2015 has been such a blast – I cannot thank everyone enough for the fun projects you’ve given me this year!!
I feel very blessed that I have been able to use my love for serving others with edible art as a career – and with that, meet so many incredible people. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities I’ve had and the relationships I’ve made. Every new project helps me learn and grow – and every new client feels like a new friend :-)
Here are some of my favorite projects from 2015:
I met so many wonderful brides, grooms and families this year as well. I feel it’s such an honor to be a part of someone’s “big day” – to participate in such a special moment in their lives. I also love seeing our amazing Pennsylvania wedding venues all beautifully decorated to suit each couple! Thank you to all of my “2015 couples” for choosing me and for trusting me to provide you with delicious and beautiful wedding day sweets :) Here’s a video recap of this year’s wedding cakes!
Thank you to my family, friends, mentors and clients – you all hold special places in my heart and I am so thankful for each and every one of you!! :) Most importantly I thank the Good Lord for the abilities he’s gifted me, the passion he’s given me for my work and the beautiful blessings & grace He provides new every day.
*God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him. We have been called to work with excellence, integrity, and diligence, and our careers are opportunities to be on mission for Christ in the marketplace. God gives us great potential for impact on our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work* – J.D. Greear
MOTHER’S DAY sweets! I always try to plan ahead for this holiday so that I can make sure to have lots of cookies for the wonderful “Motherly” women in my life… My mother-in-law is great, we not only get along … Continue reading
I’ll start this post with EASTER SWEETS!! :-) A pretty mix of flower cookies, butterfly cookies, Easter egg cookies, cross cookies – and an assortment of what I like to call “sugar scripture” cookies… This cake was for little Sadie’s … Continue reading
I love any reason to celebrate my awesome mom and mother-in-law! :-) Here are some treats I made this week for them!
I actually saw this idea on Pinterest! The tag says “you are” and then you fill the jar with little decorated cookies describing what “mom is”…Super cute and so much fun !
And then I made some larger cookies, of course :-)
She is my best friend and my #1 fan, always supportive and encouraging…Consistenly showing me unconditional love and grace, a true servant heart, a wonderful example of a Godly woman whom I deeply admire…And (Among many other things) She has always taught me to enjoy the “sweet” moments in life…and life sure is sweeter with her in it! :-) LOVE YOU MOM!!
Well, I do tend to be a girly-girl and adore all things cute, pretty and pink..I have fun making my husband and family sweets…and of course I enjoy chocolate, cute thoughtful cards, fresh flowers, etc…
But, the way I prefer to approach Valentine’s Day is to focus on the greatest love of all – God’s love for us….
He IS Love.
So instead of “saving the best for last”, I want to share my favorite cookies FIRST!
Here are some other designs I came up with…
And some more…
In closing, I would like to share one more thing because I think it is important for me to share my heart for Jesus.
I wake up every day making sure the first thing I read is this: “May the LOVE that caught my heart to set it free, Be the LOVE that others see in me. And may this hope that reaches to the depths of human need, Be the song that I sing in joy and in suffering. For you are the LOVE that never leaves, The friend that won’t deceive, You are the one sure thing.” (Lyrics from Faithful God by Laura Story)
My faith in God and his constant grace in my life have made me who I am today. My work is one way for me to “overflow” this joy into others’ lives. Thank you for visiting my site and reading my post (-:
Happy Valentines Day!
