Busy, busy, busy!

I have a VERY busy two weeks ahead of me. I have tons of orders, some of which are very large and my dear husband is leaving for India for 2 weeks. I guess the silver lining is that I will have plenty of time after the kids go to bed to bake and decorate. I am super excited for one order I have coming up. I am making pear cookies for two of the nicest people I have ever met. My "step" grandparents have been married for 50 years. I have known them for over 10 years now and they have always been wonderful to me. It is truly my pleasure to make these pear cookies (because they are the "perfect pair") for their big anniversary party. I wish I could attend this party but it is far away and with my husband out of town a few special events of our own had to be pushed to that weekend as well. I will post pictures after the party so everyone can see how they turned out. I have the whole design planned out in my head but of course I have never actually made pear cookies before. This is typical me... remember my motto, "I will figure it out". This motto was tested last week. I promised my best friend Minnie Mouse cookies for her daughters party. I have NEVER made minnie mouse cookies and of course they had to be perfect. I made a test cookie, which I normally never do and boy was I happy I did. I changed the design a little and had to change the consistency of my icing for everything to work. I had a stomach ache about these cookies after that test cookie. In the end, I made it work and I love how they turned out. Thankfully, so did she. Most of my other orders are desings that I have done a million times so although still time consuming I am confident with what I am doing. I am hoping to sneak in a little time to work up new designs for my website and a little R&R wouldn't be so bad either. Look for more cookie designs soon. Below are the minnie cookies I did. What do you think?
