My family will tell you that I can’t leave well enough alone. Always tweaking a recipe, seeing a kids board game and must play it, listening to a travel program and must make plans to go there. Well, apparently, I can’t leave classic song lyrics alone either.
A shout out to all of my hard working, creative, amazingly talented fellow cookiers in this busiest of times!
As I decorated cookies and listened to old school Christmas movies for background noise, I heard the proverbial “bah hum bug.” My mind went a-wandering and, ‘poof,’ yet another silly cookie set was born.
Word.play.Christmas onslaught begins. Started with an athletic game with cheerleaders and ended with this set. Rah rah sis boom bah (no humbug).
Spread the holiday sCHmEER. (Cheer + schmear= schmeer…) Here’s to miracles and another year filled with all things light and bright.
Smaller cookies, a couple of bites in the eating, were requested this year. Pondering what a bunch of small sized turkeys, baby turkeys if you will, would be called in the MMB world … I settled on gobble.lets or goblets for short. (okay, technically baby turkeys are called poult. But I didn’t want anything even remotely associated with pouting around my poultry…). Set in the colors of autumn (mixtures of Americolor egg yellow, orange, terra cotta, chocolate brown and wedgewood blue), I channeled random visions of Thanksgiving crafts over the years.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
This little guy was shape shifted from a maple leaf.
Halloween party animals. Hope they were “consumed” by desire to be in the Halloween holiday “spirit…”
The hubby and I are experiencing fall in New Hampshire for the first time. We hiked the Welch and Dickey Loop recently and experienced a beautiful combination of granite and autumn leaf views. Although there were pops of red and bright orange, the scene was this most amazing, gentle gradient of yellows with undertones of gold and brown. Almost ombre. My inspiration for the peaceful and pretty pumpkins. And on the drive home I spied this adirondack chair with a skull/jack o lantern face cut out of the back. You know that was meant to be a cookie. #cookieplatesfortheneighbors
