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.
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.
A very dear (not to be confused with deer) friend has me make place cards for her Christmas Eve dinner every year. This year she wanted reindeer. I placed them in a snow globe and voila! Dashing (or dancer, prancer, or vixen.).
I have been making place cards for a friend’s Christmas Eve dinner for many years. Santa’s helpers were happy to help, taking a break after working so hard all year long. Hope your holiday meal is a very merry one.
Oh the wonder of words and idioms. My fascination with the blend of visual and verbal art continues. Can you hear the sleigh bells ring, as you listen? Cookies hand painted and trimmed with Rainbow Dust edible ink pens. Background mat from InkandElmBackrops.
This gingerbread ornament was my contribution to a project organized and installed by LoveBugCookies (per the annual holiday gingerbread cookie collaboration started years ago by TheCookieArchitect). A ‘tree’ filled gingerbread ornaments from around the US/world was placed at the Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness in DC. In keeping with my style, I created to a punny ornament that hopefully made our veterans pause for a moment and then smile. Thank you Beth. Thank you Rebecca. Thank you very much, veterans and military personnel.
Hope your Christmas is splendid. This platter of trees was made to serve many people little bites (because there were lots and lots of different cookies on that dessert table!). Inspiration was from the 2013 post by Melissa Joy’s Cookies. Melissa’s creative juices flow in abundance; she is a playful and brilliant cookier!
