It's all about the packaging!

There are times when just a few cookies will do...and in that case, it is all about how you present them!

I am a "dollar" anything fanatic...whether it be the Dollar Store, The Dollar Spot (Target), or if I am really feeling cheap thrifty, I go to the .99 Store...I kid, but you get my point!

I picked up some cute little heart shape tins from the Dollar Spot.  As soon as I saw them, I knew what I was going to do with them:

 Cookies disguised as candy, anyone?  Two dozen little mini cookies fit perfectly in this tin.

Whatcha' think?  Kinda cute, huh?

Another thing I love is "Pick Your Plum"...if you are not familiar, they send you via email, daily deals.  I absolutely could not resist these cute little window boxes!  They were a bit deeper than I thought, so I put enough "shred" in the box so that the cookies would not flop around.  It would hold two, possibly three cookies really well!

So cute...who doesn't love everything chevron?  There were four different pattens in all!  Love these!

I have a bunch more Valentine's Day cookies to share, but if I am being honest...this whole picture taking thing is taking me a lot more time, with not a lot of great results!  I have to practically tie my own hands to resist the urge to just pick up my Iphone and shoot!

As if that is not bad enough...I have put myself out there with my "plan" to learn to take better pics, so I am sure you are coming to expect...well, better pics!  It's gonna take time, I am sort of a slow learner!

Till next time!

hey, you're a cookier not a photographer! But I don't see anything wrong with any of your pictures ever! :)

It's easy to take pics when your cookies look so good.
