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)!

Fast Track

Making place cards for Colleen’s Christmas Eve dinner is an annual event. Her eldest grandchild is currently into trains so she thought I was on the right track with my “sweet” engine design. DSC_0385.jpgtrainplacecard1.jpgtrainplacecard2.jpg

Baker’s Christmas

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!

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.

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).

Happy Hanukkah 2018

Spread the holiday sCHmEER. (Cheer + schmear= schmeer…)  Here’s to miracles and another year filled with all things light and bright.

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!
