The mixer and oven have been going non-stop over here because I just can’t execute the Christmas creations out of my brain fast enough. My youngest suggested that I take a break from cookies for a while because the holiday season was supposed to be fun…gosh, did I look that frazzled?! I tried to explain that I ENJOY the cookie part of December, it’s just the other stuff that gets in the way. Like making dinner and cleaning and shopping and sending Christmas cards (yeah, that last one may not happen this year). This is why I told you I put my Christmas tree up before thanksgiving. The decorations go out early or they might not go up at all!
Because I should be paying my bills right now instead of blogging, here’s a brief low down on what’s been made lately in Melissa Joy Land.
This festive camper was made for the Christmas Countdown Challenge over at Cookie Connection. It don’t think it will be chosen, but it sure was fun to make! You should go check out the entries…they are incredible!
This cookie cutter I just had to buy. Such a great retro vibe to it and for some reason, it reminds me of my childhood. I want to make a whole reindeer set of these, but that may have to wait until next year.
My sweet snow bird. I love this cookie cutter! I have made a version of him for Valentine’s Day and Easter and will perhaps challenge myself to make him for every holiday throughout the year. I’m a total bird nerd.
Hope your kitchens are happily busy and your place more organized than mine.
