So the other day my hilarious and genius cookier friend Georganne of Lila Loa threw down the gauntlet with a "Creative Cookie Decorating Contest". That crazy lady posts this outline of a present cookie cutter and tells cookiers to go nuts making it into anything... except for a present.
So I went to visit my sister and we went shopping at that mecca of all creativity: Hobby Lobby. I don't have one anywhere near me, so I seriously dream about that place. There we are perusing the aisles; me touching everything and skipping, (maybe singing?) when suddenly before me is that present cookie cutter. Hanging there. Mocking me.
To make a short story long, I bought the offending cutter and I asked every human who crossed my path what they saw within those lines. I rotated it for them. When they answered "present" I hissed at them and limped back to my corner, cupping the precious in my hands and stroking it.
Okay, so that didn't happen... not the limping part... and I didn't carry it around with me in my purse just in case... and I didn't sleep with it either...
Short story longer, I was making Easter cookies and decided to cut out some of those FREAKING presents and maybe inspiration would hit. Here is what I finally saw within those lines. And now that my brain is exhausted I can retire my present cutter to my cookie cutter bin with the rest of those crazy shapes that I will never look at it again.
I don't know why I came up with two things with the same name, I'm just happy I came up with something! Thank you Georganne for
There is still plenty of time to torture yourself with making a present cookie into not a present cookie. Go to Lila Loa and join in on the fun!
