Every Accomplishment Starts With The Decision To Try

A triathlete is a cyclist, a runner and a swimmer. They go the distance and push their bodies to do more than I can even imagine. Sometimes more than they can imagine too. I found this saying "Every Accomplishment Starts With The Decision To Try" and I used that as my inspiration for this set of cookies.

I love this set with a runner, a cyclist, a swimmer, a wave, a shoe and a bicycle and a whole bunch of stars to go with them. A friend of mine has a friend that is a very strong athlete and she was in an accident - hit by a car while cycling. So she wanted cookies to lift her up and these are what I came up with.

 Then I did a set in red and blue too.
I started by making a cyclist cookie cutter, all cutters available here

 I love the simplistic design
and a bicycle available here
 and then I made a runner cookie cutter available here

 and a super cool running shoe available here

 and a swimmer available here

 I love these!
 and a really fun wave that sparkles with sanding sugar, cookie cutter available here

and a mini star available here

 and then I used my scallop circle cookie cutter for this saying to tie them all together, scallop circle cookie cutter available here
Then the same customer also asked me to make cookies for her cycling race team

 so I was able to make more of the cyclist cookies that I love

So as you can see, I had lots of fun with these triathlon cookies and in my two favorite colors too!
My new little grandson is now 5 days old. We were able to babysit Abigail while my daughter and grandson were in the hospital. Baby and mommy and daddy are doing well. I rode my bike on Saturday out to their house for a visit.
Lots to do before Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful week and have MUCH to be thankful for. I sure do!
