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.

Veteran’s Day 2018

I was humbled to be a part of Operation Cookie Takeover  this October.  These cookies went out to an active duty Marine stationed abroad.  In addition to active duty military, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans; I can’t imagine what it must take.  Much obliged to Melanie at Killer Zebras for the perfect thank you stencil and accompanying cookie cutter.

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

Glad Grad

We have been renovating a 30 year old house since we moved to New Hampshire this past spring.  Many people will warn you about the costs and the timeline of renovations.  “Many people” were correct, correct, and, oh yeah, CORRECT! But, at last, catching up on the cookie sets never posted….

I created this set last spring for one GLAD GRADuate. Thank you Lawdy that that part of schooling was done (although she is now working on her Masters…). Impressive.gladgrad3.jpg

Halloween 2018

Graciously, Meri Meri allowed me to capture their 2018 Halloween designs in cookie form.  These went out to the yearly GO BO Bake Sale, fundraising to fight childhood cancer. Here’s hoping that one day we will find the way to cure or prevent cancer.
