There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.


  1. What a great gift idea. Decorating sugar cookies are so much fun and a great Christmas tradition.

  2. What a great idea! This would be such great gift for those just too busy to bake or who simply don’t like baking. Love it 🙂

  3. What a super fun kit! I know plenty of people who would love to decorate a few cookies but not have to do all the prep work!

  4. What a fun idea. Everyone will love getting this gift.

  5. What a great idea! I would love this, especially because by the time I’m done baking the cookies I’m not as interested in the decorating of them as I was when I first started
