This was such an exciting and unusual project for me . It's always so wonderful when I hear about babies being adopted...they are special little ones indeed!!! This little girl, 1 1/2 year old Cora, is being adopted from China. She is one loved little girl ❤️.

What a celebration this will be. We wanted to incorporate Chinese words, "love" and "family", into the baby shower set. A teddy bear theme seems to be a frequent request. So it made sense to have the little guy holding a heart with the word "love". In retrospect, it would have been better to have made the Chinese lettering a little bit smaller in order to write "love" onto it. Also, I've used the Chinese lettering for "Family" on the baby block but should have written that word on there as well...sometimes I want a do-over!! You know?

I didn't have much time and had to plan quickly. That always makes it more challenging for me because of my busy schedule but I just couldn't say no to this project. It's too special .

I had a last minute idea to make one other cookie with a teddy bear holding some heart shaped balloons with Cora written on the balloons. Again, I ran out of time and the finished cookie isn't as detailed or well done as I would have liked. But I thought they would enjoy it nonetheless. I've attached it here.

I'm not good at painting on cookies. I envy all of you amazingly talented artists who do that so well!! I tried to use the wet-on-wet technique to make some small roses on the cookie with the bunting. They're not super well done. I'm my worst critic by far and just hope they will like how it turned out (crossing my fingers).

This was so much fun!! Stenciled Cora with Teddy Bear cropped
