a new lady bug design….the beetle is pretty popular birthday party concept in Turkey.


Lady Bug, Lady Bug
she landed on my nose
I went “kerchoo!” and
off she flew!
Her body is round with
big black dots,
My mommy told me
they’re called spots.
Lady Bug, Lady Bug
she looks really neat
With her bright red wings,
And tiny black feet!


Happy Birthday Cookies for a boyfriend! A ladybug is lucky! Well at least for us. I am not a believer in such things, but love the fact that this pretty and colored bug represents goood things.

Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home….your house is on fire, and your children will burn. Except
little Nan, who sits in a pan, weaving gold laces as fast as she can!

I am sure you know the song, we have a similar version also in Turkish, more concerned about rhyme, then the meaning of the song. However, we need to sing this song, if a ladybird comes to us or lands on our finger…this would mean, what we wished for at that moment will come true.

We all know storks brought us to the world;

in Switzerland, it is not storks but ladybirds.
I believe no other bug would be the topic of a cookie decoration anyway…maybe the butterfly and dragonfly!

Have a nice and lucky day!!


The girls above are ladybirds!! My mom hated them! She simply hated them! But I did not want to change anything, as they are characteristic ladybugs and I myself love them – what do you think!!??
They were prepared as a ‘thank you’ to a beloved customer of mine, who loves the taste of these cookies very much. Her friend wanted to make a surprise with these cookies and carefully selected the ones she enjoyed most.

It is one of those days when 24 hours is not enough at all, and it would not be enough even if I had 30 or 40! I close one notebook, start a training project with daddy, inbetween stick some stickers on cookie treat bags, come back again work on the blog… I am going slightly maaddd! Tomorrow at 9 work HARD! I have to survive these 2-3 weeks, wish me luck will you??
