Bizzy Buzzy Bee

HONEYCOMB CLOSEUPLast night I was in a pretty yucky mood.  I wanted to just sit on the sofa and watch Grimm and eat chocolate ice cream, which I did… for a little while anyway.  After I finished my ice cream I opened a package that lifted my spirits a little bit.  It was my hexagon cutter.  It cuts 6 hexagons at once.  All I could think of was the cookies I’d seen on the Cookie Connection site done by Pamoda Vanderwert.  Such beautiful works of art and so much texture.  I felt truly inspired.  I felt the need to create.BEE SET 1

This is what I ended up with.  I was pretty pleased and was in a much better mood by the time I was done.  Who knew just making the cookie instead of eating it could make one feel better?

There is still one cookie missing from the set.  I was supposed to have written a message on one of the honeycomb cookies that said, “Can’t wait for you to BEE here!”  I got so carried away with applying texture that I forgot to add the message!  Tonight I will bake a plaque cookie and flood it in yellow and add the message and stick a little bee on it.  I can’t wait!  It’s amazing how a little creativity can lift one’s spirits.  What is your creative release?
