Spring has sprung...

Spring hasn't exactly sprung for us in the upper mid-west but it is pretty close!  Cookies are therapy for me and if I'm feeling down, I like to bake and decorate them. Flowers and butterflies make it feel like spring while my yard is still 4" deep in snow so I started baking cookies and decorating them to help me remember that there is a spring coming!

A New Adventure

    Cookie Capers started as a Mothers Day gift for my mother who wanted cookies from a really expensive cookie chain.  I decided I could do it way cheaper and make the cookies actually taste good.  That was 6 years ago. I have learned a lot about cookies and myself!  I started out making them for gifts and eventually, folks started to pay for them.  I have never been good at pricing them or being consistent with pricing.  I am trying to change that and make this a real business to help bring in a little income for our family.

     In my attempts to get the word out about my cookies, I have done many things: a couple of websites, an Etsy store (still up and running), a Facebook page (also still up) and a few other things that aren't worth mentioning.  This blog is a new idea I had to help me organize my current photos and my new ideas for cookies.  I think this will be a really fun way to showcase each theme or idea I want to try.  I have lots of ideas swirling around in my brain and I plan to get busy baking!  ~  Stephanie
