  • These cookies are for sweet Jennifer and her adorable one year old Finn.

    Jennifer had told me about her vision, and then sent a little picture along for me to follow from.

    I would not consider myself a hippy by any means, but I sure did get my groove on making these!

    As you might have imagined, I didn’t have a bus cookie cutter, so I made a template and cut each one of these out by hand.

    I love her color choices!
