The Art of Cookie Misdirection

My husband is the master of cookie misdirection.  He will coyly slip each of our daughters a cookie usually at an off the wall time like 7 am and then slyly walk away with his own little stash as I bicker on about the importance of not eating junk food in the morning.  As if I don't know?  I love that he enjoys my homemade cookies and I'm looking forward to the holiday season when I make up huge batches of Christmas cookies to share with our cookie clutch and of course some to be distributed to the girls and stashed with him.  Made with ripped paper, gesso, watercolor paint, oil pastels, colored pencils, markers, india ink and pens.
