A little inspiration!

I am a sucker for Christmas mugs.  Add a cute little winter owl to the mix and I am all over it!

Every year I see some that I can't resist and end up buying a couple to add to my current collection.  Do I NEED more Christmas mugs...nope!  But hey, since when do we only buy things we need?!  I loves me some cuteness so I buy them anyway!

Thankfully, Mr. Hob Lob is nice enough to put this stuff half price, which sweetens the deal just a little.  Here is a pic of the mugs that were to my cupboard collection added this year.


Serious cuteness, right?  Well, maybe not if cute little owls aren't your thing...but I fell in love.  It took a while before the light bulb went off...how cute would these be made into a cookie?!  I got out my newest, most favorite, owl cutter that I purchased from Sarah at Klickitat Street, and got to work!

This is what I came up with:


Whatcha' think?  Kinda cute, huh?

But now we have to backtrack a little.  I was in HL again a few days after I bought my mugs and spotted THIS:


Ummm, hello...a matching cookie jar?!  What the what?

Do you see that little bird sitting on top of the owl's head?!  This just took cuteness to a whole new level.  I should tell you that I did not see these the first time because they were on a completely different display and before you ask, NO...I did not buy the cookie jar...yet!

So what's a girl to do?


I used a little paisley cutter and created the little bird sitting on his head.  So fun.

Isn't it nice when something in your head actually turns out just like you pictured?!  Not always the case, I assure you!

Anyhoo, to complete the little collection I used the bird cutter that I purchase from Plastics in Print.


These went to my grandkids in Denver...Taylor's latest love is everything owls.  I think she is going to love them!

One more peek:


I know that I jumped the gun on winter creating winter cookies before I even did fall, but I could not help myself.  Rest assured...there will be some fall cookies coming soon!

Now...an update on the mystery cookie cutter...another incorrect guess:

Witches Head.

And, because I love ya more than my luggage, (and I want to see if you are paying attention) I will give you a little hint...think "Christmas"!

BTW...by the time you read this, I will be well into my little trip to Vegas...hopefully winning lots of money!

Till next time!

I'll take another shot. How about Santa's face? BTW, those owl cookies are so cute! I love how you incorporated in the little red bird too. Adorable.

Love the red birds! My 7 year old thinks the cutter looks like an elf head.
