It's Beginning To Look...

...a lot like Christmas (in my notes at least)! Although we have Thanksgiving upon us in just a few days, I have clearly abandoned all Fall cookie ideas for those of Christmas. It makes me sad that somehow October and November have fled my life and I think I did all of 2 Fall baking adventures! So sad! I am going to whip up at least one last pumpkin baked good before November is over, I just have to! The thing I love about sugar cookies is that they are so artistic and truly come to life with just a little time and effort. The thing I don't like about them...I can't do my usual creative baking that I LOVE to do. I remember answering a fellow bloggers question one time...something along the lines of would you rather bake or decorate...Truly I am so torn with this question, I honestly cannot answer it! I truly love decorating whether it be cakes cookies or cupcakes, LOVE IT! But I also LOVE just plain ole baking, creating new tastes for my bakes, I can't get enough! So my answer...I'm torn...gun to my head, I cannot answer! How about you?

So anyways, why am I here today...to brainstorm for the upcoming Christmas season of course! I am fortunate to have some great Christmas orders coming up and given that I cannot tolerate even the slightest feeling of disorganization, I figure now is as good as time as any to get organized. I plan on doing some very fun things for my Christmas cookie collections, I have been researching in blogland as well as all around me for some Christmas cookie inspiration and my notebook is filling up with ideas. There are so many amazing cookie decorators out there and no matter how many cookies I decorate, I still cannot get enough. I want to do more more and more! Try out new ideas, techniques, colors etc. Look at these adorable cookie ideas from some of my favorite bloggers...(in alphabetical order) click to see my favorite of their Christmas collections
There is just so much out there, you can go on overload, a month does not seem like near enough time to play with Christmas sugar! Please share with me your Christmas inspiration, how do you decide what to do with so little time and so many ideas? I would love to hear your thoughts so please share! Happy Holiday Season to all and I hope to have some new posts and pics to display soon! In the mean time...happy baking, happier eating!
