Here's my story- I work full time for a large financial services company in Boston as a Project Manager (I'm a certified PMP). I'm married to a wonderful, supportive guy who after being laid off from the finacial services field, has been going back to school to become a nurse. And lastly, but most importantly, I'm a MOT (mother of twins to the uninitiated) to 5 year old girls who keep me on my toes, but constantly make me laugh.

So that's me in a nutshell...well, sort of. It's only half the story, because what I really love to do and am intensely passionate about is baking. Baking cookies to be more specific. It just sort of happened one Christmas...my first Christmas being in my own apartment. I had baked often with my Grandmother when I was a child but that Christmas was my first time making something from scratch. I pretty much fell hard right then and there for creating…

Here's my story- I work full time for a large financial services company in Boston as a Project Manager (I'm a certified PMP). I'm married to a wonderful, supportive guy who after being laid off from the finacial services field, has been going back to school to become a nurse. And lastly, but most importantly, I'm a MOT (mother of twins to the uninitiated) to 5 year old girls who keep me on my toes, but constantly make me laugh.

So that's me in a nutshell...well, sort of. It's only half the story, because what I really love to do and am intensely passionate about is baking. Baking cookies to be more specific. It just sort of happened one Christmas...my first Christmas being in my own apartment. I had baked often with my Grandmother when I was a child but that Christmas was my first time making something from scratch. I pretty much fell hard right then and there for creating wonderfully, delicious bites of heaven. I baked and gave them away as gifts. And it felt amazing. So I did it again. And again. And again.

The tradition grew and each year I would bake more and more varieties because there were some that just had to be made each holiday season, but I also wanted to try new recipes. As the years went on the number of cookies I made grew until I was making over 10 different varieties. Of course I ended up with copious amounts of cookies...well over 1000 cookies would be splayed out on my dining room table while I would package them up and give them to friends, family and co-workers.

I really came to look forward to my big baking weekend (I would take 3 days off of work so I could get it all done over an extended weekend). I would plan for months before trying to determine what new varieties I could concoct. I would scour magazines, cookbooks, and the internets for new inspiration and always put my own twist on them to make them more "me".

More and more people would tell me that I should really consider selling my cookies because they were so delicious with unique flavors. So shortly after discovering Etsy in early 2009, that's just what I did!

I have been thrilled to build my business since re-opening in 2010 after a 6 month hiatus while I was pregnant. Since that time I have met so many wonderful people and been able to really establish great relationships with my customers, which is very important to me.

So that's my whole story! If you made it to the end - congratulations! You now know something else about me- I like to talk! :) I'd love to chat with you so feel free to drop me a line sometime.
