We're half way there

Hello, it's been a long time.  I didn't drop off the face of the earth.  Yes, I've been making cookies this whole time.  I wanted to share what I've been up to lately.  On April 4th, I started the 100-day Project.  What is the 100-day Project?  It's about doing something creative like sewing, drawing or painting.  In my case, cookies for 100 days.  Here is a link to the official website.  As the title to this post eludes, today is the half way point.  I had lofty plans of post here weekly with my cookie creations, but it's challenging to make a different cookie everyday.  My daily post can be found on Instagram at Cheetahcookiesaz.

I had a few reasons why I wanted to join this project.  I had just returned from Cookie Con.  There were so many wonderful creative people who taught some great classes and I purchased and received a ton of new cookie stuff.  I wanted to try out new techniques I learned and use all the new stuff I acquired.  I also wanted to challenge myself to create something new for such a long time.  I've done smaller 30-day cookie projects in the past for my birthday and Christmas, so I knew this project would really take planning and determination to finish.

I first week of the project was filled with Hawaiian themed cookies.  We had just returned from our Spring Break trip to Hawaii and I made these cookies as a Thank You gift to some friends who allowed us to stay with them.  Their daughter loves basketball.  She reminded me of myself at that age.  I LOVED basketball too but she plays much better then I ever did.

The second week of cookies was focused on Easter Cookies.  I purchased some royal icing bunnies and chicks that I used in the basket cookies.   The stencil I used for the rainbow Easter eggs was from Two-T's stencils.  The little bunny face was a free cutter that came in our Cookie Con swag bag from Bobbie's Cookies and Cutters.

This week had a bunch of birthday sets which made this project a bit easier.  I didn't have to think about what to make.

I used real flowers on these cookies.  This was an idea I've had for about a year now.  The flowers came from a local farm.  The flowers are very delicate and have to be refrigerated to keep them from wilting, so I would only recommend using real flowers if you are going to immeidatly give the cookies away.
