I took a bit of a break from cookie-ing after the many hours invested in the fundraising I did in February. Also - if you're reading this blog, you probably know me or someone I know in real life and will already know that I'm pregnant and have had other projects and concerns of late. I do have a backlog of pictures to watermark and I'll be getting posts up to accompany those as I get time.
I wanted to let everyone know that I was able to make and sell enough cookies to donate over $500 to the family that my parents' VFW was fundraising on behalf of last month. You can read more about that story here. The bake sale itself raised around $130 so I think I took the right road by selling them myself and then donating the cash. I don't remember exact figures... apparently I have pregnancy brain.
My husband was kind enough to put together a small collage of the cookies I made minus the last 75 or so that were just neon colors that I kicked out in exhaustion and did not take time to photograph. We included a copy of this collage with the donation money.
Thanks for looking and supporting this cause if you are one of those kind enough to purchase a cookie or two (or a dozen or six).
