Safari Baby Shower

They celebrated sweet baby Cash in wild safari style! I mixed zebras, elephants and giraffes with some large leaves to follow suit with the invitation! Playful and adorable is always a good match for a baby shower!safari4.jpgsafari9.jpgsafari8.jpgsafari5.jpg

I before E

A little irony before the end of the year. The English language both/often perplexes and amazes me.  2018 sure had some unique word choices.   ….exceptions to the rule or exceptional?

Synonym Buns

Actual cinnamon buns in the oven led to synonym buns. Which got me on a roll that led to some pretty silly cookies. Seriously though, the English language and I have a long and convoluted relationship. Come along while I navigate my cookie-documented IDIOMactic journey!

Go with the Flow.er

Made this flower bouquet for a special birthday last summer. Love the ease and simplicity that cookie flowers allow.  Make as many or as little flower cookies as you want. Throw in some leaves for good measure.  Change the colors or shapes to work any time of the year.

Fast Track

Making place cards for Colleen’s Christmas Eve dinner is an annual event. Her eldest grandchild is currently into trains so she thought I was on the right track with my “sweet” engine design. DSC_0385.jpgtrainplacecard1.jpgtrainplacecard2.jpg

Orna.MENTAL

Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone mental trying to come up with new Christmas designs. The struggle is real but in the end I decided not to fuss and just get down to business.  Some simple fretwork, a marbled tree or two, a few sweet Santas and Christmas is in the house.
