Cookie Exchange

I've been meaning to post these pictures for so long now!  Life just kinda gets away from you sometimes, doesn't it?!

I had a little cookie exchange with one of cookie heroes....Angela, aka SweetToothFairy on Flickr.  I have wanted to see her work in person for such a long time!  We decided to do a cookie exchange between the two of us.  My jaw hit the floor when I opened my box and saw these AMAZING cookies:

Her work is so amazingly delicate and detailed.  I can't imagine how small of a tip she must've used to do these!

I really struggled with what type of cookies to make for her.  I ended up settling on a spring theme, just because I'm desperate for some nicer weather!  Anything "springy" puts a huge smile on my face, as I'm hoping it did hers as well!

Honestly, I loved the way they turned out, but mine definitely looked kinda big and clunky next to her delicate work! 

I've been thinking of maybe doing a couple of "how-to's" for the blog as well, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to ideas! 

As for us, we're still looking for a three bedroom house for rent for our house guests.  So if anyone knows of anything in the Columbus, West Jeff, Plain City area, let me know!  We love being full time grandparents but are looking forward to getting our empty nest...emptied again!  :)

Thanks Loren! I've been doing ribbon roses on cakes for years, but never thought about using them on a cookie until I saw your awesome tutorial. I also loved the cupcake cookies on your blog! :) It's nice we get so many ideas from each other!!!
