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!

May all your Christmases be Bright

May this Christmas (and coming year) bring you the joy of toys. May your day be merry and bright. And, remember, daylight hours are getting longer (at least in the northern hemisphere)!

Season’s Bleatings

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.

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.

SLAY Bells Ring

Are you listening? Suffice it to SLAY, those SLAY bells have been ringing! So many folks out there working hard 24/7, slaying their own world.  This is my homage to all you amazing people. MMB offers you props with the proverbial pun.  Keep up the good work and enjoy a bit of down time over the holidays.  Merry everything!!!!

Fa Law Law Law Law

 

Holiday office party for the judicial courts in Colorado.  Please pun, the client said.  I don’t have to be asked twice. Her favorite were the ‘briefs’…

Law and Order

Yes, I really do know the most incredible people.  Seriously.  Accomplished, interesting, nuanced folks.  Dan is one of those “complete package” guys.  He has made me chortle with laughter, tear up at his kindness, and shake my head at what can fit in his 24 hour day.  So, my word play cohort, go forth and rock Stanford Law School!law.jpg
