eCLIPse ART

Cookies for a party celebrating the “totality” of this solar eclipse! It is a happy set of coincidences that allows us to experience this event. The diameter of Earth’s moon is about 400 times smaller than the diameter of the sun, but it’s also about 400 times closer to us here on Earth (as compared to the distance to the sun). Poof.  The magic of a total eclipse happens. But the moon is slowly moving away from the earth so in , say, 600 million years, the moon will no longer totally cover the sun and earthlings will not be able to see a total eclipse.

Never let a good word play go un-expressed…

Geek is the new Chic

I am so happy for Katherine- that she is graduating from high school and heading to Pitt to study neuroscience.  But, dang, she is the youngest of the swim kids with whom our children hung out! All this growing up is happening!  An era of chlorine is over (I mean, even Michael Phelps is retired now). Yikes!

In any case, it was one last graduation set to make.  I made two platters: one focused on the nerdy inclinations and the other on her future university, Pitt.

For the Geek inside us all (okay, maybe not ALL of us), I focused on some biological responses.  #nerdsrule #chemistryiseverywhere  Those stamped clever/nerdy sayings came from pencils I bought from Newton and the Apple.

But my favorite was the Myelin sheath dress.  (I try to come up with my own clever creations whenever possible.  I think this is another Mama Mayer original.)

Lastly, here are a couple of close ups for the Pitt cookies. I have a thing for puffy cookies….

Oh Crap!

Yeah.  We’ve all been there.  That day where nothing goes right.  It seems the odds are ever NOT in your favor.  Well, let’s change that ‘oh crappy day’ into ‘oh happy day’ with this play on (some of) our favorite emoji.

Star Wars Valentine

Let the 2016 valentine season begin.  First up is my ode to Star Wars 2016.  It’s a War on word play.
