Have you guys heard of this new social media video app- Periscope?  It is all the rage right now, for two reasons.  One, it’s broadcast live, and two, you can interact with your viewers because they can leave comments and you can respond right there.  Well, I am not much of a video girl, but…

Blythe Doll Extravaganza

The other day I went to show someone my Blythe Doll cookies on my website, and imagine my dismay!  They weren’t on there!  I was so crazy busy that some blog posts just didn’t get written.  Remember when I showed you my Arty Blythe from my visit to Kansas to be a guest prof. at…

And now for something completely different…

I had an idea.  I love all the coloring sheets I see on Pinterest. But the other day I realized I didn’t want to color them (maybe cookie them, haha!) but I did want to make some. Remember this cookie set?  Inspired by traditional folk art motifs. I thought it was the perfect place to…

For the Birds

Did I mention that I just finished up a top secret project?  Shhhh.. It’s true! And I’m not here to tell you about it or show it to you.  Totally top secret.  Instead, I will share this random collection of bird-themed cookies I just made to celebrate the seemingly miraculous advent of Spring. Yes, spring…

Chicken and Egg Pysanky

When I was first starting out, one of the first things I did was this set of Pysanky eggs. I did it as a decorating party, and spent two weeks planning my designs, and about six hours mixing icing and flooding cookies for me and my friends. And about an hour and a half to…

Fun with Cookie Toys

Part of being “The Cookie Architect” is that I have a tendency to do elaborate, over the top, time consuming cookie projects.  You knew that about me, right?  I think of those projects as my “real cookies.” But do I let these time consuming projects keep me from making other cookie projects that pop in…

Featured in an Interview on The Business of Baking

I met Michelle of the blog The Business of Baking on Instagram!  She’s great fun, and she has tons of great information about being a good businessperson in the baking arena.  I’ve even learned a bunch that can be applied to my architecture business! I was honored when she asked me to be featured in…

Blythe all the things!!!!

I just got back from the most fun little cookie trip! I went out to the magical Kansas film studio where Arty McGoo was awesome enough to have me on as a future McGoo U guest! Do you guys know all about McGoo U?  It’s a fabulous online video series that is professionally put together…

Team Cookie: Cookie Con Design Seminar EDIT: CLASS FULL

I can’t tell you how excited and honored I am to be part of the next Cookie Con, taking place in September 2015 in Salt Lake City.  I went last year and couldn’t have had more fun meeting all my cookie friends and checking out the cookie happenings!  Last year, there were only class offerings during…

Valentine’s Day Part 3: Sacred Hearts

These last few red and white cookie sets were all done very spontaneously.  Typically, I draw inspiration from a number of places, and do drawings, and fuss and ponder.  But I had a mountain of icing, and “needed” to try some peanut butter cookies.  So that’s why I’m coming up with these quick, one inspiration…
