Toodles have been great!

So....2012 is coming to an end..and 2013 is upon us.
Is it just me, or did this year just
fly by?
I mean seemed like just yesterday,
I was celebrating Valentines day?
I think time moves faster as you get older.
I remember when I was younger,
Summer Vacation lasted FOREVER, blink and it is over!
And the period of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas,
oh my...they say it was 4 weeks this year,
personally...I think it was 4 days...but whatever!
I baked and decorated TONS of cookies this year.
Not a lot compared to some of the great cookiers out there,
but all of these cookies were done while
working a full time job.
And...I only have 3 hours each night to work on cookies,
because my lovely son, Collin, closes the kitchen and cookie room at
9 pm...SHARP from Sunday-Thursday.
Friday and Saturday I can work late into the night, or till early in the morning,
but other then those two night..
No matter how many cookies I have to do, or
how far behind I am.....9 exceptions! matter how the volume of cookies coming out of my
kitchen compares to others,
I am pretty proud of what I can do in a limited
amount of time!
So...I put together some collages of some of my
favorite cookies of 2012 for you
Lets take a look, shall we?

So, there you have it
my 2012 in cookies!
I would like to be able to tell you that great and wonderful
things are in store next year for The Cookie Puzzle,
but that would be a lie.
I plan on keep doing what I am doing....
simple cookies
simple blog
simple person
it does not take much to make this gal happy!
Hopefully though
I will post more
push my self more
maybe do a tutorial here and there
but mostly...I just want to be true to me
and hopefully that is good enough to make
a few people happy,
that would make me happy!
Wishing you a Happy and Blessed
until next time,


  1. Great post and great cookies! You are a machine girl. I wish I could pump out the cookies you do. I can't believe all you do with a kitchen that shuts down at 9. Wishing great things for you in 2013. Let's keep each other in line :)

  2. I look forward to each and every cookie and post from you. You keep me encouraged to do more. I took work full time, 45-50 hours each week outside the home. It's tough and I hear more than anything, you must have a lot of free time on your hands.....I prefer to think of it as, you pursue what you are passionate about. Had hacking going on in my FB account this year and had to shut down my Cookie Parade page since it was attached to that FB account, but hoping to get going something new this year. Your cookies are AWESOME!!! Keep up the great work because you are an even bigger inspiration than you can imagine!♥
