Ladybugs, Ladybugs....

I had the honor of being contacted by a cake decorating friend who was looking to have some ladybug cookies made for her niece's birthday.

My friend lives in NY and her niece lives in Florida and was unfortunately unable to go this year, but she still wanted to send something special and something made just for her.

I was so happy to do this project because I love ladybugs... My husband and I are blessed to find several in our bedroom during the summer months. He always tells me that they are good luck. We catch them and release them but are always pleasantly surprised to see more visit.

I found this information about Ladybugs online:  

The Ladybug is widely considered a symbol of luck and is seen as a good omen when it comes calling. In Sweden, it is said that if one lands on a young woman's hand, she will soon get married. In France, it is said that if you are ill when one lands on you, it will fly away with your illness.

 Ladybug teaches life is short and it teaches to let go of ones' worries and fears, to trust in spirit and enjoy life. It brings the gifts of renewal and regeneration. The message of the Ladybug could be asking you to “Let go and let God”.

Thanks to Sugarbelle for her great tutorial and help with making the second set of cookies. 

I made two sets... One facing one way and one facing the other way. 

Happy Happy Birthday to my friend, M's, niece. I hope it was a great one and that she, her family and her friends enjoyed the cookies.
