‘Write’ On!

Some people who are near and dear to me are/were teachers so I have a special place in my heart of those who guide us toward critical thinking.  My 2017 gift box for the classroom teacher is right/write track.

And it all adds up for cookies that are calculated to make the math teacher smile….

Artistic Expression

Where does your mind go when it wanders? What do you think of when you take a walk, or are waiting for sleep, or are in the shower? I have a certain, um, inclination to think about cookie concepts.  I have often wondered if cookies are into me as much as I am into them.

This set started with someone saying a famous artist’s name just a little wrong.  My mind took it to “Vincent Van Goat” and the cookie set took on a life of it’s own.

Toast the New Year

Hope you are the toast of the town this New Years Eve! Here’s to a wonderful and adventurous 2016.

And, I promise, this is my last word play for 2015…   🙂

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Hope you ride the gravy train over the turkey terrain to Mount Mashed Potato. May your pies pile up to the skies.

Grateful for my family, friends, and followers… oh and grateful there’s no rationing of sugar and flour.  (Cookie cutter Bed moulding from Truly Mad Plastics , gold background stencil Killer Zebras, ‘give thanks and sweet as pie stencil from The Cookie Box).

My best to you all!DSC_0026

For Sure, Architecture

There is a lot of fun banter that goes on via the Instagram feed.  So it happened that the fabulous Rebecca Weld, aka the Cookie Architect, off-handedly inquired if a particular set of my cookies had a home.  And how she was willing to volunteer hers if not. Those cookies were spoken for but the wheels started turning for a “structurally” sound solution.  As ridiculous as it seems, there appears to be a pun/wordplay for every situation, including architecture.  If you want to have your socks knocked off, click on the link above to visit Rebecca’s blog- and prepared to be dazzled! Her cookie art is one of the Seven Wonders (of the Cookie World).

50 Shades of Hay

I confess, I have not read the books nor seen the movie.  But the word play from just the TRAILERS alone was enough to CORRAL me into this cookie set.  Just HORSIN’ around.  Hope I haven’t offended anyone who loves the topic- Shades of Grey or equine…
