Another type of creativity!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Several months ago, I was asked to make cookie favors for a fundraiser last Thursday night called 'Home is Where the Heart Is' that would benefit Crossroads RI. Crossroads RI is a non profit organization that finds shelter for the homeless of Providence & RI. Also, finds shelter for women and children having domestic troubles. My friend is one of the organizers of the event and loves my cookies so she asked if I would bake and donate the favors and call them Kendra's Kookies. I happily agreed because I wanted to take a little time off from my art and do something else creative. So I spent about 24 hours in the kitchen with flour and chocolate flying everywhere. It was fun and rewarding and I pulled it off! Maybe Kendra's Kookies will become another form of art for me.

Kendra, your presentation is very artistic, but more important, it's very generous. What a great way to give something of yourself to the community.

I couldn't have said it any better than Gary. You are terrific!

Thank you! I like to give back, especially in this economy.
