Holy Holly Sleighbells Santa!

Last post I mentioned I was going to take a run at the holiday lalaloopsy doll and turn her into a cookie. I think like digital scrapbooking, it's better to go big or go home when making my "graphics".  Holly turned out okay, not to my total liking but I got a smile out of my mission completed.  I snapped a picture of her to share before my husband tried to eat her with the last of our milk!  Guess I better go shopping, wouldn't want to have to leave dear old Santa high and dry.  Maybe this year he could do with a steaming hot night cap with a little extra spirit if you get what I mean?

Fa La La Loopsy Cookies

Pardon my hiatus I took following Ethan's birthday blitz... I had a series of Christmas Craft shows to get through. I must admit I was not in the crafting mood... BAH! Did I just say that? What is wrong with me?  No, I did not fall or hit my husband wonders about that most days because of all the crafts. I just wasn't feeling it this year. BUT - now that the sales are done, my ideas are flying wildly and my doodle books are filling up with new ideas to share with you over the course of the next year!

With Christmas right around the corner and a request that came from the Toronto area for some Lalaloopsy cookies I started looking online for more cookie inspiration, what could I try.... and then I found her!

Hello Holly Sleighbells

So STINKIN' cute!  And of course NOT AVAILABLE IN CANADA!!!! GRRRR...Hello!  Up here in Canada, NORTH of you, we like Lalaloopsies too.  Regardless - I am not bitter, it's the holidays and I am HAPPY because I am going to turn her into a cookie, and her little reindeer too. 

Perhaps I should take a rip at this guy as well, inspired by Marion over at Sweetopia... a little something for my guys to enjoy as well this holiday season.

Happy Baking!
