Secret Cookie Queen Cookie Swap

That's a mouthful in the title of this post! 

Once again, the Cookie Queens cookie group on flickr conducted a 'secret' cookie swap.  Each 'queen', who wanted to participate, submitted their name to the pool of willing participants.  One of our wonderful group administrators, Asya, took it upon herself to coordinate the secret swap.  Once we received our fellow queen's name and address, the rest was up to us......choosing a design.......bakin', makin', and shippin' 'em off to our queen.  I can't yet say who I sent my cookies to....because everyone hasn't received their cookies.  Nor, can I post the cookies I sent to my queen.....not until everyone is on the receiving end of these little treasures.
It's a fun thing to do.  Although, it can be a little stressful and intimidating making and designing for one of your peers.  Always, the self-doubt creeps in....will it be good enough for my queen.....especially the one I had to decorate for!!

Late yesterday afternoon, I was the lucky recipient of these little masterpieces from the queen who baked and decorated just FOR ME!!

She sent a sweet little note telling me to be sure and eat them.  Say, what???!!!  They are way too cute to do that!  I think I'll just admire them for now!  My kids want to have at them, though!  They don't seem to have a problem gobbling up custom decorated cookies that take hours to design, bake, and decorate!

Here's my booty..........

And the super cute packaging they came in...



They're so cute, they deserve a close up.....



I'll post the cookies I sent to my Cookie Queen once everyone has received their little masterpieces!
