    1. I know...I'm not sure what it is about that kind of work, but it's awful on the back muscles. ha. The kitchen sure has smelled good, though!

  5. You know how to make a Wedding special. Favors you can eat are the best..who wants a little jar of bubbles when you can have a Betsy cookie.

  6. You are soooo talented!
    Did your hand get tired when you put the "design" on? (Mine hand is tired just thinking about it)
    I need to catch up on all the blogs I follow....
    My husband has had me busy planting the garden.
    And I have "found" free books to read on my Kindle Fire...read a whole book today...so I didn't get much else done. 8~)
    Take care,
    Nancy

  9. I love the lacing, they look delicious. Hey, you know, I was going to mention this the other day but never did…you had mentioned in a post someplace that you make baskets, what kind, just curious…I was driving around today and I heard someone talking about handbaskets, whatever that actually is, and I was reminded

    1. I do have a little gift basket business here in my home. But it's more of filling a basket with gifts instead of making the actual basket. If you click on 'gift baskets' in my label cloud you'll see what I mean. I've been doing it for 20 years...it's really been a good experience!

  19. Very pretty, Betsy. Lots of work involved to make that many. My daughter got married in March--I cheated and bought 300 decorated cookies for wedding favors. I'm always impressed with the lovely, creative decorating- I'm on Pinterest and see tons of absolutely the cutest, most detailed decorated cookies--too cute to eat!!! Mickie :)

    1. oh, you didn't cheat...that's what this mother-of-the-bride did...she bought them from me!

  21. They turned out beautifully. But what a lot of work. My back would be breaking. Great job and I know they everyone will "ooh" and "ahh" over them.

    1. I hope they do...I'm sure that's what the bride wants them to do anyway! Thanks, Magpie. :)

  22. Wow, the cookies look great! I would never have the patience to make even a dozen of them, let alone 300. Very nice!

    1. thanks, yuji. :) But I consider you a very patient person! ha.

  23. "I do," huh? Just be glad they weren't for my wedding. They would have said "I'm thinking it over!"

    1. Wow. I can just imagine how badly that would go over..you in a flower-filled gazebo saying you'll think about it!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, but then again, if I go so far as to reserve that gazebo... I've obviously made up my mind... in the positive. Hell, I'd probably renew my vows for this one someday, if I could just find the right place. Somewhere exotic...

    2. If you had two of my cookies and a cup of coffee I'd faint. hahaha.
      Yay for you. :)

      Yes, it's a ton
      but a paycheck was won.

      Delete
    3. LOL well you may just faint one day
      If Pat ever goes down near your bay
      As many travels are going to come due
      That is surely true
      Just need a bigger paycheck I suppose
      Maybe cookies could end my woes
      Or we need that pot of gold
      To go someplace warm not cold..haha

      Delete
    4. Definitely need that pot of gold
      before we get too old.
      And maybe a blogger meet and greet date should be set
      someplace fun where we could all take a jet.
      Would be great to meet a few
      and yes, that would include you! :)

      Delete
    5. Yeah it should be done
      If only it didn't cost a ton

  36. This is the mother of the bride for whom the cookies were made...Betsy, they were fabulous! Thanks so much for all your hard work. I've had lots of compliments on them, too. Had a few left over, so we've frozen some for the bride & groom for later. So glad we went with this idea.
    Since these were handed out following the ceremony and not at the reception, we had a few funny comments, like, "So, this is new...are we supposed to crumble them up and throw them at the bride & groom as they depart?"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, hello there, Ms. Anonymous. :) I'm so glad you were happy with them! :) Crumble them and throw them like rice...now that would have been weird! hahaha. Thanks so much for asking me! And I'm glad you left a comment here...it's always nice to know who is reading! :)

  37. Wow, 300 vanilla cookies? I could die right now!:) They're not only yummy to eat but are also cheap wedding favors to give to the guests. I want to have them on my wedding day! :)
