Stained Glass, abstract cookies for the Moore, OK Relief Fund


THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!  A few weeks ago, Shannon from Artfully Delicious Cookies asked several of us cookier people if they would donate cookies to raise money for those affected by the F5 Tornado that tore through Moore, Oklahoma.  I of course said yes. I’ve never been through one before.  We didn’t get a lot of tornados in Ottawa, Canada or in Toronto where I grew up.  We moved into our house in Raleigh and within the first month there was a tornado that destroyed a large part of downtown, a hurricane and an earthquake.  While we weren’t directly affected by either, I saw the devastation that was left behind.  So can I make a couple cookies??? You bet I can.

I had originally offered up a dozen of my stained glass butterflies but my mum wanted some for her friends, I asked Kari who won my auction if she really wanted butterflies as I could do something else.  I was looking for a new challenge.  She just said she and her girl friends were going to have a cookies and wine party.  And there is my theme.


The auctions started on June 1st and went for 6 days.  So many awesome cookiers took part. Check them all out.
