A message from Laurie...
My name is Laurie Butterworth, the face behind Laurie's Cookies!
How it all started
I have been decorating cookies since early 2014. I experimented with cakes in the past (for my kiddos of course) and realized I wasn't all that good. lol BUT I still wanted to learn! I only started with cookies after seeing a video tutorial on YouTube. It's been a long road of trial and error. Sleepless nights, numb hands and aching muscles...and totally worth it.
I'm a single mom of 4 (yep, you read that right). So as you can imagine, life gets pretty craaaazy. My background is in Human Kinetics (graduated B.Sc. Hon. H.K, 2009). Definitely not what everyone might have thought I'd be doing now!
Here's what I want you to know. I love what I do. I don't only love to decorate, but I love the connections I make with customers (a lot of friends now!). I get an enormous amount of joy when I can make people happy.
This little business has grown into something I never imagined possible. With your continued support I have been able to support my little tribe. It's often times overwhelming, and very exhausting. My kids know that mom has to work especially hard now more than ever. I'm trying to teach them the importance of hard work, independence, and responsibility. That being said, as a mom I want to offer the best product possible, at reasonable rates. I get it! 4 kiddos really changes your monthly budget! lol BUT please understand, this type of work/art takes soooo much time. Time away from my kids, time away from "normal life". I am working very hard to have a little something for everyone for all budget types. This business is my heart and soul. Another baby if you will (omg lol).
To you my cookie Peeps!
I can't even begin to express how thankful I am for my clients who have followed me for years now. You've seen it all happen!! And for all my new followers, welcome! I look forward to meeting you, and sharing my passion for cookies with you. Whether it be for a quick cookie pick me up, or a workshop..I am excited to see you!
So thanks again my fellow cookie lovers. I hope to see you all soon! xoxo
