A Cookie in the Oven

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, May 23, 2011

Someone has a secret ...

And that someone is me!

I have been dying to spill the beans, so I won't delay any longer ...

I have a little cookie in the oven!

I'm due the end of the summer.

Everything with the pregnancy is healthy and great : )

My little 3-year-old is so excited to be a big sister!

Especially since she is getting a little sister. Yep, we're having another little girl. Yay!

We are working on getting everything ready for the new addition. We are cleaning, organizing, working on house projects, and of course getting all the baby gear ready.

Plus, we are working on picking out the perfect name. There are so many beautiful names to choose from! I told Topher I was going to let you, the blog readers, select the baby's name. Just kidding! These preggo hormones are making me crazy, but not that crazy!! 

As a result, I will be taking some time off from cookie orders to focus on my family. My motto has always been family before cookies...and I really want my time devoted to our new baby.

I am not currently accepting new orders. My baking schedule is booked through June. I am not planning to do cookie orders in July and August since I’m due the end of the summer. I was surprised at how quickly my schedule filled up. At this point I'll be updating my website so that it is clear that I'm taking time off.  

I do have several personal cookie projects for the coming weeks and months, so I will continue to update my blog regularly with those few projects. I hope you'll continue to follow my cookie adventures until I'm back to work! I definitely plan to offer more tutorials, since hopefully I'll have some time to pause and take more photos during the cookie making process!

Thank you to all my wonderful customers - I look forward to baking for you when I return from my 'cookie-in-the-oven' leave!!

Have a sweet day,

    Love, love, love the stick people family! I just made a congratulations set of cookies for neighbours with a new baby and included a stick people representation of their family, using your idea. I even included their dog. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I knew you and Topher were expecting, but this is the first I heard that you’re having another little girl. Congratulations! Hope you’re feeling as good as I am — cheers to summer and our final trimesters!
