Merry Fitness and Happy New Rear

Christmas at the gym (thanks for the order Meghann, owner of Trivida).  Surely a good workout is what Santa meant when he said “sleigh it, Rudolf!” Blitzen that workout.

Deer Me

A very dear (not to be confused with deer) friend has me make place cards for her Christmas Eve dinner every year.  This year she wanted reindeer. I placed them in a snow globe and voila!  Dashing (or dancer, prancer, or vixen.).

Red, White, and Rudolf

This set was for my hubby to take to work.  Reindeer have been my cookie buddies as of late (long story) so I had to include Rudolf with some mistletoe.

The relief ornament decoration was made using a stencil from The Cookie Countess as shown.  Definitely a life saver when it comes to saving time. I used several shades of red and some white to achieve the effect.

The company business involves concrete and aggregates thus the trucks and the “crushes it” idiom!

We Wish You a Dairy Christmas

Just in QUESO you’re going to a holiday wine and cheese party… Or if you have a friend that is a cheesemonger (I do). Really, really- it’s NACHO fault if you are shaking your head; I CAMEMBERT when I didn’t take advantage of every opportunity to make a play on words.

Southwestern Christmas

The annual girlfriends Christmas party had a southwestern food theme this year.  I asked the hostess if she wanted Christmas or southwestern themed cookies.  Both? she inquired.  Why, yes, we can.

Who doesn’t think of cow skulls with festive garland when Christmas comes to mind? I mean, really…SW Xmas 1.jpg

American Ninja Warrior

So William turned 6 and celebrated with an obstacle course and a blue, black and white themed party.  With the speed of a ninja, I pulled my trusty “kick backside” cutter out to create his party favors.
