Catching up with Christmas!

Okay - So I very clearly dropped the ball on Christmas posts so I am squeezing in some of my favourites from this year...well..last year :) I had a lot of fun with the cookies this year, and I now have 2 boxes of Christmas cookies cutters Yes some of them are multiples. This was the first year that at the end of everything I was glad that it was over. Normally I just want to leave the tree's so pretty... but this year, I was itching to take it down! It just takes up too much space in our apartment!!!  So now Christmas is over, and the new year has begun...and here are my super fun cookies of Christmas just past :)

 I ended up taking so special requests this year - which was good and bad. It was good because it allowed me to branch out with different themes and colour schemes. It was nice to have some variety in decorating the same cookies over and over. It was bad because I let too many requests in - and different half orders with different requests. Personalized cookies is where it started to get to be too much! I had an order that got a little mixed up and it turned in to a hassle for me to provide more cookies to make up for missed names. As a lesson learned, when it comes to Christmas time, I will not be doing personalized cookies again. It took a little the fun out of it for me unfortunately.
Even though I'm pleased that it's passed, I do look forward to next Christmas so I can do it all over again! I look forward to new cookies :D I hope that my little Christmas post inspires a little joy in your Monday!

2015 / A good year...

 Happy 2015! (a little late) I'm sure you're all getting used to my blog tardiness by now! I was on the phone with my grandma the other day, who reminded me that some people don't have Facebook! Which is fair, it's a bit of a life suck! haha Anyway I thought I would get back to my little bloggy here...and let you know that I believe it's going to be a GREAT year! For me, for MMB, for everyone ;)

To start the year off with some sweet treats! Here are some new years cookies! They were my first order of the year, which makes me pretty happy as I've never done new year cookies before!

 I realize that my blog neglect means that I missed posting all my Christmas cookies! Do not fret! it's still early 2015... I have a little bit of time left to show you! I'll pick the best of the best for you to see! Stay tuned!
