Comfort food- it can whisk you and your tastebuds off to a warm, safe place. It can unite a community that shares with one another. It evokes similar feelings in us all- feelings that were a big inspiration to us in naming our company.
Max’s aunt Janet (@raisinporpoise
) is an expert in all the forms comfort food can take. Luckily for all of us, she just published her first cook book:
Extra Helping: Recipes for Caring, Connecting, and Building Community One Dish at a Time.
Go check it out and buy it for a friend, neighbor, or loved one. It’s amazing in so many ways.
There is a link in our bio to take you to the book, and if you’re in Seattle this week, Janet will be giving a talk at @booklarder
Monday Dec. 10th at 6pm (we’ll be there!). 💙❤️ #extrahelping
It's officially November; right smack dab in the middle of Autumn Equinox 🍁🌾
get yourself settled by the fire place with a cozy blanket, some fuzzy socks, a warm cup of coffee, and these delicious Fall-themed cookies ☕️🛋
I have 2 of each of these designs; 4 Cookies total.
🍂 2 Cookies for $5
let me know if you'd like some, and I can deliver them to you 🤗
these past couple months, I haven't been very active on Social Media 😔
to say this Summer and early Fall has been my busiest yet, would be an understatement 😬
not that I'm complaining; the support I've been receiving for my craft is nothing I ever imagined it would be 🤗
they say if you work with passion, you never work a day in your life
even though there are times I want to give up & run away, I don't 🙂
I wouldn't 😊
I couldn't 😄
because, seeing you happy, makes me happy. and if I can make even one person happy, then that's the motivation for my next project.
I'd love to take a moment to share some of my recents with you all, in case you're curious what I've been up to. and, if you haven't been curious, whatever...here they are anyway 😇
I've stepped out of my comfort zone a few times, but new challenges are so rewarding to conquer 🏆
📸 1+2 • Custom Baby/Toddler HeadBand crafted for a special little Girl who was photographed as a surprise for her Mommy's birthday 🌼🎁
📸 3+4 • Custom Dessert Display; built with sentimental vintage barn wood, free-hand sketched, painted & beaded, adorned with florals & foliage for a very dear childhood friend of mine who married the love of her life 🍡👰🏻
📸 5+6+7 • Baptism Cookies for another childhood friend who's newborn became a Son of God 👶🏼✝️
I just want to say how honored I am to be chosen to execute projects like these. I can't wait to show you what's in store for the Fall & Winter 🍁🖤❄️
and remember to always support Local & Small Business Owners.
when you do, you're not helping a big corporation reach their sales goal.....you're helping a Single Mom put food on her table, and provide the best possible life she can for her child.
so, thank you, endlessly, for supporting me and my passion, and allowing me to provide for my daughter in the most creative way I know how.
Your easy, low effort, take-all-the-credit dessert! For when you want to WOW but can’t be bothered to try 🤦♂️🤫🕺🏼
recently, I had the pleasure of preparing some cookies for a precious little one year old's Baptism; which was really special to me, considering this was my first religious themed batch ✝️✨
then, we had a few cookies left over in the batch to ship off to a few friends, and of course a couple extra for Devereaux to decorate 🤗💖
We hope the cookies were enjoyed by all! We sure like a little cookies with our frosting 😋🍥💚
