My arms are noodles and my hand is stuck in a permanent claw position, but I'm so happy to have survived Valentine's Day! Thank you to all the wonderful customers that ordered this year. Thank you also to my husband, mom, Megan and Stacy for their help!

Without delay - here's a fun time-lapse video on the making of the Valentine's!

Keep in mind, this video is sped up...so it's only a minute long, but in real time it took me about five minutes total of decorating time for each heart. (the video also does not show the drying time. I allow 1-2 hours of drying before flooding neighboring colors, especially when dark and light colors are next to each other. This reduces the chance of color bleeding and also adds a nice dimension to the cookie design) 

Here's a peak at some of the hundreds of cookies delivered this week...

Part of the Chocolate Collection

We shipped lots of orders.

 

And so many cute cookies went to Callao Cafe this week!

One of my favorite cookie designs - the cupcake!

Would you like a box of chocolates?

Finally - a super sweet thanks to Krista at Drawn with Character! We loved the bag toppers available in her Etsy shop! Can't wait to use them again soon!

That's it for now...time to spend some time with my valentines!
