As you have seen before on here, I have been making some cookies here and there. I love making the cookies. They are my little works of art.

Sadly, my cookie "business" had no name.

I needed to come up with something quick because I wanted to donate some cookies to an auction that was being held at one of the schools close by. My high school does an auction similar to this one, so I knew I had to enter something - small schools are near and dear to my heart and I love to do anything I can to help. I was thrilled that they would take cookies from some no name for their auction! (And I selfishly hoped I could drum up a little business :) )

However, I am no longer a no name! We have a name! I am now The Cookie Jar and I even have some snazzy business cards and stickers that my lovely husband transferred from my head to the computer then printed. (This is where the graphic designer husband comes in mighty handy!!)

I made two cookie baskets for the auction. The first was an all boy basket.

(See my card?!?)

Of course it had to have tractors,


and heavy equipment.

The frilly girlie basket...

Complete with tiara (with sparkles, of course),


and balloons.

I hope someone was as excited to get these as I was to give them. I felt like I was sending my kids off to their first day of school.

I am gearing up for some more cookie making. And when I say more I mean more!! Big order coming up and I am so excited!

D**n the recipe. Do you share your cookies with people who come to shoot your husband's doves?

Do you have a horse cookie cutter?

and I don't mean anything by this... I don't think.

Linsey, your cookies are adorable! How do we find out more information if we wanted to make an order?

Linsey (September 2, 2010 at 5:40 PM)

People who shoot the dove - What are you going to share with me?!?

Hey! My name is Kathryn Collier. I am a friend of Katie Garvin's. We went to Reese's birthday party and saw the cookies that you made. They were so cute and good! I was interested in finding out about some for the holidays. How much do you charge for them and to ship them? My e-mail address is:

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you. Kathryn
