Christmas Cheer

Word.play.Christmas onslaught begins.  Started with an athletic game with cheerleaders and ended with this set.  Rah rah sis boom bah (no humbug).

GOBBLE.lets

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!

Autumn in New Hampshire

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

Can Do Attitude

John Atkinson, over at Wrong Hands, has me in stitches. Chortling, nonstop.  The way this man thinks is right up my alley. And yes, I have asked to use his cartoons as a jumping off point for cookies. I may or may not have requested permission and then bribed him with cookies. In any case, this set started with inspiration from the brilliant brain of John and modified with some Mayer mania.  It was my set to encourage someone that they could do it!  It’s all about the CAN do attitude.

Stick with It

One advantage of waiting so long to post this set is that it is hockey season again (we are in that sweet spot of sports where it is baseball, football, hockey, and basketball season all at once.  Choice is a good thing, right?)

Anyway, back to hockey. … and word play.

Halloween 2018

Graciously, Meri Meri allowed me to capture their 2018 Halloween designs in cookie form.  These went out to the yearly GO BO Bake Sale, fundraising to fight childhood cancer. Here’s hoping that one day we will find the way to cure or prevent cancer.
