My Cookie Cutter Collection and Two Creative Rudolph Cookies

I have a problem.  Those who know me have seen it up close and personal.  I am a hoarder.  A cookie cutter hoarder!

I get lots of questions about where I get my cutters.  Sometimes I remember, sometimes I don’t.  I get them for gifts, I order them, I have people bring them to me when they travel to foreign countries, sometimes I make them, sometimes I bend the ones I have…

Bern dogg and I tried to count them once.  We gave up after the 900′s.

Not to long ago, I had a gal get REALLY irritated with me when I could not tell her where I purchased  a certain cutter.  Instead of trying to explain, I’ll just post a picture.  It’s worth a thousand words, or in this case, a thousand plus cutters!  So, please don’t be mean to me if I say I don’t know.  I am not fibbing…I REALLY DON’T KNOW!!!

This doesn’t include the 41 new cutters I got for Christmas, the other full basket in dining room that I have been using recently, or the others I plan on ordering from Karen’s cookies with my Christmas gift cards in the next few days!  I know it’s excessive, but it’s my thing.  Some girls do shoes or nail polish,
*ahem, you KNOW who you are ;)*
I do cutters.  And, I like to enable others with my affliction…makes me forget I’m nuts!
*right ,Bea?*

 As for cutter shapes.  Lots of them I do remember.  Especially recent ones.  I had several people ask me about my reindeer this year.

 I just wasn’t really digging this guy as a leaping reindeer…

So, I bent him a little to give him a wider neck, and turned him around, and he became a new man, which I like,  A LOT!

I also made another reindeer.  Don’t give me credit for creativity…it was desperation.  I have about 200 mini cutters at least, and my cute Rudolph was in the mini box. It was late, and I was tired, so I looked at the cutters I was using, and I improvised.  It took a few seconds more to trim them, but digging though the minis could EASILY take twenty minutes, so this is what I did…

From that, came these. 
So, moral of the story?  NEVER JUDGE A COOKIE CUTTER BY ITS SHAPE,  It can be any thing you imagine! And, no matter what your husband {or wife} says, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TO MANY COOKIE CUTTERS!!!

Hope everyone has a happy Monday. Back to work for us all!
Were we even off???

    I’m a reindeer nut, I collect them. Can you tell me where you got your original leaping reindeer cutter? I love what you did with it. I’d sure like to try that myself. All the ones I’ve found online were more detailed with legs bent. I love your blog!

        Hi there! I am also jealous of your organizing skills! I see a bakery owner above asking for you to come organize. I, too, am about to be a bakery owner, well, maybe I already am but it has yet to open. That will happen in late September or early October. I won’t beg you to come and organize but I WILL BEG for your help as to how you labeled them.

        I try to organize but I get all bent out of shape about it, and it ends up worse then when I started. Not sure how many I have but enough where I need a system! My problem is what about over lapping subjects…some cookie cutters can be in multiple places in my mind. Say a season…fall… a squirrel fits there but then it also fits with wild/forest animals but yet all of those animals do not fit with fall. This is only a single example of many of my organizing weaknesses!! :) So please do tell EXACTLY how you label and keep them organized.

        I have the same problem with my candy molds, fondant molds and fondant cutters. Many may say what is the big deal but what ALWAYS seems to happen to me is that I forget what I have or I cannot find what I have when I need it. I do not have your ability to see other things in a different cutter so I go buy another…..then of course I find the old one once I have already USED the new one. Plus I am ADD and uncontrolled clutter adds to my demise of procrastination.

    I did a cute reindeer head by turning a gingerbread man upside down (on his head, so to speak)…the legs and arms become places for antlers and ears…the head a great spot for a giant nose.
