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).

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.

Smitten Mitten

These winter themed cookies were given out as small gifts for the holidays. The timing was perfect as they arrived as the temperatures dropped and snow was predicted. I particularly liked the mittens where each design was a little bit different that the next.  Design ADD.

Autumn Birthday

You know when you can’t get a song out of your head…? This particular one coincided a dear friend’s birthday and so the center cookie came to be created.  I love the tall cake designs by Aime over at The Painted Pastry ; I took inspiration and put my own fall spin on several cookies for the set. The edible oak leaves came from talented Tammy Holmes. Lastly, what birthday would be complete without party hats and party blowers???

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

Snark Attack

This may or may not have been one of my favorite sets ever to create. Wisecracking was dripping off of my icing bag. I would go so far as to say it was total SASSafras. Maybe or maybe not a little close to home????
