365 Days of Cookies {Day 6}

I am getting VERY involved in this cookie project I have embarked on. I call it 365 Days of Cookies. I first came up with the idea from a similar project my mom was doing, called Knit-A- Year. I began this project once before, last Easter, at about the same time my mom started her knitting thing, but my work load and life got in the way. However, now that I have more free time, I have decided to get back into it again.

When I started this project, I peer pressured my buddy Landa into it. It was kind of like a diet buddy thing, if I knew she was up late working on a cookie, it would keep me motivated to do mine, and not be the one who turns up empty handed in the morning. Rules are pretty slack. As long as we get a cookie posted every day, with exceptions for family stuff, holidays, and the “BIG” things, then that’s all it takes!
I worked through this week and I noticed that every single day, Landa was posting a cookie that was just STUNNING. She doesn’t post as often as others, so sometimes I forget the originality and beauty of every single cookie she makes.
That made me think, wouldn’t it be cool to encourage others to do this with us? The expectation and excitement seemed to push both of us to make better and more original cookies, so would including others to participate encourage a cool cookie EXPLOSION? I sure hope so, because there is nothing I like more than cool cookies!
So, if you are interested, let me know here. If there is enough interest, I’ll open a Flickr group dedicated to this project.  Keeping up doesn’t have to be difficult…bake one batch of cookies, and pop them into the freezer, and then decorate as you needed. You can get ahead by doing several at once, or decorate one every single day. Whatever suits you best.
I hope you will take the challenge and join. This could be fun, inspiring, and also be a way to practice and get better!

As for me,I am almost through my first week, of cookies and this is my cookie for Day 6. The inspiration was a combination of a dress form and a gift card I saw in Pier One. Don’t ask me how I come up with these things, but here it is. Cookie of the Day,My Favorite Christmas Dress!
