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 in my Etsy shop

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

 and a super cool running shoe

 and a swimmer

 I love these!
 and a really fun wave that sparkles with sanding sugar

and a mini star

 and then I used my scallop circle cookie cutter for this saying to tie them all together
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!
