Happy MEOWoween

Oh my, all the PAWSibilities when it comes to black cats and halloween.  It’s a FURmiliar TAIL of word play and topic.  This one is LITTERally PURRfect.  Hope your Halloween is full of wonFURful treats and CLAWver treasures.

Bone Dry

Maybe this isn’t Arizona but Colorado has been pretty, darned dry lately.  The only plants that seem to be thriving are the cacti.  Continuing in my skeleton groove, I thought it only fair to bring these bad-to-the-bone cactus to Halloween life.  Even the orange and black/terra cotta pots kept it hauntingly festive.  I can definitely say that the one on the right is a spiny cactus. Hope they tickle your funny bone…

Cookie cutters were from BobbisCookieCutters, SheyBCookieCutters, and TrulyMadPlastics.

Skeleton Keys

Another play on words??? So shocking.  Let me know if you are getting tired of them. Apparently I never do.  And I am kinda pleased with the random mermaid skeleton.   Do I even have to say that my mind works in weird ways???

Halloween GoBo 2016

Dear Halloween:  I get it.  You’re spooky. All that creaking and moaning is very expressive.  But I am just not that into the scary vibe.  I’d rather flaunt my haunt with a flavor of fun. Turning word play possibilities into probabilities. Hope we can still be friends.  My best, MMB

Here are the cookies that went out to the GoBoBakeSale this year (fundraiser for ALS).

Bye Bye Bye

How can you be incredibly, at the deepest darkest depths, sad and yet excited at the same time? Well, Megan is one of my favorite Zumba instructors (and I AM PICKY about my instructors!); this very same Megan decided to adventure in Spain! As in a permanent move!!! So excited for her.  So sad for us.  This was the platter I made for her before she left.  Puns included.  As always.  Hope you’re loving life over there, Megan! Miss you!

Friend.Chips

She says to me “I want to give some cookies to a sweet friend. We were acquaintances before but totally bonded one night over our obsession for the phrase ‘fries before guys.’ Our friendship and partying time blossomed after that.” I say to her “so this box of cookies is all about joint experiences and potatoes?” Yep.  Some friend.chips are forever.

Nine Months on the Inside

My niece is expecting her first child! Had to think of some pregnancy puns, pronto!  It’s important to make light of an ever expanding situation, you know…

Here’s that cute onesie shape from Kaleida Cuts again! (yes, I am slightly obsessed…)

Political Party

We’re about a month away from a big decision(s) here in the US of A.  It feels like a lot of lines are being drawn. But this platter went to a party that didn’t take sides. Rather it celebrated our good fortune to be able vote on the matter.
