The cookies were very nicely decorated. I could immediately smell the butter too! I was looking for something that was simple but pretty. I was disappointed that a lot of cookies were cracked if not broken. Packaging should be been much better. I was originally going to display them on a platter on the candy table. I now have to wrap them individually in plastic wrap in order "mend" the pieces together.

About

The evolution of YBCrazy

YBCrazy started as the name for my little books I crafted, and then it was added to my "Stuff for Little People"-- knit baby socks and sweaters, summer sundresses and hats and tiny shoes, and then YBCrazy Cookies.

When I began making "word cookies" I became more and more excited by the power of words to remind the young people around me to value themselves, to show care and concern, to send holiday wishes, to be "crabby". That is when YBCrazy Cookies Not Cards---"Eat your words of love, angst, hope and sorrow" blossomed.

YBCrazy Books

PART 1. The beginning:
Books are a passion of mine. When I was a tiny baby my brother put a Whitman's Tiny Tales book in my crib with me and thus began my love affair with books.

A couple of months ago I felt a book coming.....it was hatching, forming, waiting to be born. It was then that I stumbled across a tutorial on making a meandering book from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper. Fascinating!

My mother, my beautiful sweet mother passed away in October 2009 after slipping away a little more each day throughout the summer. It has been an especially hard year, as you may imagine. gripped me and I wished only to lie on the sofa or get in the car and drive away....it was then that I found these little books.

The pleasure in their craft soothed my soul. Here was something I could do. Something beautiful. The little Beach book was born...I filled it with quotes about the beach, a place that soothes me.

And every day now I want to make books....adorn them with jewels and bits of crocheting....love them into being. It heals me.

More than a little about me...

My Etsy site has been evolving. It started as a venue for my tiny YBCrazy Books. As always with me my interests are ever changing, there are new things to try and share. Some of the "bits" you'll find here are "saved" and "rescued" oldies from my mother, that I hope someone will love again.

Cookies Not Cards
Words and writing couldn't just stay in books. I have been baking and decorating over 250 dozen Christmas sugar cookies as a volunteer, for the Cookie Walk held by the First Baptist Church of Medfield for the last 10 years or more. This project plus cookies made for family and friends would mean nearly 100,000 cookies worth of experience.

I started using the cookies as an outlet, a way remind my children and their friends how wonderful they are---thus the Self-Esteem cookies. "What I need" cookies, came from from an especially bad day as I make my way through a very sad and painful end to my 23 year marriage. Anti-Valentines and Crabby Cookies, another venture in "cookie therapy".
My favorite to make are the Minis and any "word" cookies. You can see more of my cookies on my blog. http://ybcrazy.blogspot.com/p/yb-crazy-cookies-2011.html

About the Little Books
Books are a passion of mine. When I was a tiny baby my brother put a Whitman's Tiny Tales book in my crib with me and thus began my love affair with books. I have a little collection of them, most of them given to me when I was about two years old. When I was six and I learned to read....it was a glorious time. How excited I was that I could read !

Over the years I have written stories and poems, crafted mini scrapbooks in tiny pre-made 3" spiral books, sewn together pages and bound my own books over the years......the books keep coming.

A couple of months ago I felt a book coming.....it was hatching, forming, waiting to be born. It was then that I stumbled across a tutorial on making a meandering book from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper. Fascinating!

My mother, my beautiful sweet mother passed away in October 2009 after slipping away a little more each day throughout the summer. The year that followed was especially hard, as you may imagine. As we got closer to settling her estate, Depression gripped me and I wished only to lay on the sofa or get in the car and drive away....it was then that I found these little books.

The pleasure in their craft soothed my soul. Here was something I could do. Something beautiful. The little beach book was born...I filled it with quotes about the beach, a place that soothes me. Making the books, loving them into being....helped me heal.
