I was feeling like such a sack after all the crud with the family, and I really didn't care for the yellow on the Thanksgiving one (couldn't locate brown tissue paper) anyway, I guess I need to remember NEVER to pay attention to people who try to bring you down.
Cripes, these are the same people who take great relish and pride in critiquing EVERYTHING I do....hated the new business cards, the cupcakes I make are too small, lol, and that chewy stuff (fondant, Satin Ice, no less...) apparently tastes like Play-doh and is for people too lazy to learn how to smooth the icing!!! AGGHGHGH!!
So thank you so much.
Your kind words kind of blow me away (sorry, there are some craaaaazy talented cookie divas on this site, lol.) I'm just glad to hear they don't look juvenile. There is one cookie person, can't remember her name but sweet mother of God, her sleigh from last year should be framed!
I am re-thinking the prices..... I'm in central CA, not a ritzy area but they take SO long to do that I need to make sure I am charging enough, otherwise why am I doing it? I decided to go to $30 for Halloween, $35 for Christmas (I think still $25 for Thanksgiving since the leaves are very basic and the pumpkins aren't terribly detailed and I don't know if people will order the TX ones....)
As for the inividual I went to $35 per dozen for all (except for the spider web cookie which is $4 each - holy cow does that puppy take a long time!) I would like to charge more for the snowman since it was time consuming too but I hate to feel like a nickel and dimer and I am running out of space on the flyer.
Thanks again for all your supportive words and advice.
PS - anyone wanting to duplicate those, I got the glass base at the Dollar Store - worked perfect, no weights needed (whew!) and I copied a CC cookie genius here and don't bake the cookies on the sticks now. This was so much easier and faster for me - thx again!
