I was lucky enough to be asked to be part of a really fun
Collaborative Group Project,
Coordinated by the super talented and ever so sweet
Cristin of Cristin's Cookies
Cristin sent us each a cookie cutter, and asked us to create
whatever we wanted...anything goes!
But...we did not know what the cutter was, and we could not
share or talk to any of the other participates about
our designs, until they were all submitted and she sent
us the final collage!
I was super excited, and secretly praying that it would be
one of my two favorite cutter shaped,
I totally stared at the mailbox for days...waiting and waiting....
I ripped open the box and saw this....
WHAT THE WHAT?
What is it?
What could it be?
What CAN I make?
Ruh Roh....I am in trouble!
I had a problem....a big problem!
I don't have "cookie think"!
I don't see stuff when I look at a random shape.
I can not draw to save my life....I mean at all!
So...I traced the cutter, copied it like 8 million times...
the just stared at it
and stared at it...
Then I carried it around with me...
and asked everyone I saw
"What is this?"
Oh...everyone helped...they all saw different things
How do I get that "image" onto a cookie?
Remember...home girl can not DRAW?
SO....in a panic...I turned to my Collin
"Hey Collin, what is this?"
"It's a girl mom...duh"
"Um...sorry I don't see it"
"What? It is right there...see...it is a little girl"
"Um...no..I still don't see it"
"MOM! It's a girl...just make it a girl"
"Nope..still don't see it"
Then I had to do what parents all over the world do...
I had to PAY my son to draw a cookie design for me!
Everyone does that....RIGHT?
Please tell me people do that....I don't want to seem like a freak!
So...after $2.00 and like 5 minutes at the desk...Collin handed me THIS!
Isn't she cute?
So...I "could" have tweaked it a little, evening out the features, make a little change
here and there...but in the end....I just went for it...and
re-created Collin's design exactly (or at least I tried)
Not perfect...but close...and I was happy with it...I had some consistency issues with
my glaze...but it was done...and Collin loved it!
onto what the other ladies did!
You are about to be AMAZED!
These ladies really out did there selves!
I love each and every one of them..
and honored to be included in such a
talented group of ladies!
