Cookie Exchange 2011

Every year, my fabulous Jolie partner in crime, Lisa, throws a wonderful cookie exchange! We all bake and there’s a competition for best tasting and best looking cookie. We also bake extras to pack up and donate to Unity Care, a transitional foster care program. This is actually the whole purpose of the exchange other than to gorge ourselves in deliciousness.

Lisa set up all these lovely blue and gray decorations and sewed some lovely streamers to hang on the edges of the tables. She just took 3 streamers and ran them through her sewing machine!




For the cookies, she sat doilies on top of kraft paper rosettes.

The waterfall of circles were made from paint chips and sewed together!

All packed up and ready to go with pretty labels.



Lisa also prepped some funky sock monkeys to make for the kids at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital. What a fun twist to the traditional sock monkey! I love how they are so big and cuddly. She bought these socks at Target.



Great job Lisa! Can’t wait until next year 🙂
