This Elf is not on a Shelf

I will eat them in a box. I will eat them while in my socks. They are so good, so good, you see. I will eat them by the Christmas tree. I will eat them here and there. I will eat cookies anywhere.  This elf has certainly left the shelf. So you know where to sit your self.

The sweetest Christmas Eve dinner place cards you’ll ever find.

Cookie cutter from the wonderful KaleidaCuts!

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

Orna.MENTAL

Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone mental trying to come up with new Christmas designs. The struggle is real but in the end I decided not to fuss and just get down to business.  Some simple fretwork, a marbled tree or two, a few sweet Santas and Christmas is in the house.

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 at 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.
