Jeeze just imagine with all the places represented on this site all the lovely cookies we would see. I sure love to learn new things about people. Just a thought

That sounds very interesting and really cool.

23 Fire Ant Festival (GA) <-- Interesting thing to celebrate

icon_lol.gif We will celebrate anything down here! The Fire Ant Festival is big, and held about 30 minutes from me down here in South Georgia.

Imagine being "Fire Ant Queen" and "Little Miss Fire Ant"...

Good thing we don't have a Buzzard Festival icon_rolleyes.gif

Hey, I vote for the *all holidays* idea because I know I'm doing St. Pat's stuff, but I definitely want to do something for 'Respect your cat' day!! icon_wink.gif And grandparents day is important!! How does one choose?!?!?

I think doing the holidays thing is awesome too. I think maybe I'd like to make 2 or 3 different "holiday" things.....

ape Posted 27 Feb 2007 , 6:34pm
post #46 of 61 can someone explain the cookie club? Does anyone who wants to decorate cookies to go with the theme and then post them? Is there a special place to post? How do we see everyone's cookies...just look through the forums? And who makes the final decision on the theme?

Help...something new to do is waiting!!!!!

How about anything Irish leprechans lucky charms pot of gold rainbows Like an Irish Fest

momsandraven Posted 1 Mar 2007 , 8:24pm
post #54 of 61

Well, it's March 1st, so I'm probably too late to get my 2 cents in. I like the Movies theme the best though, or even 'your favorite movie of all time'. I think lucky charms would be a fun one to do too.

I love the big list of holidays, but if we are all doing something for completely different themes, how will we see different interpretations of one general idea? Wasn't that a big part of choosing a theme in the first place? I'm not trying to be bossy or anything, I just really love it when the theme is a little more focused, but still allows wiggle room for creativity.

mangiamangia Posted 1 Mar 2007 , 9:49pm

i agree with momsandraven about having a more focused theme than the 'any holiday' one. i vote for the favorite movie theme too!

What is quote "your interpretation of March Madness", the March cookie theme?
Does that mean basketball? What can you do with basketball?'

I think I don't understand the theme...

newcakemaker Posted 2 Mar 2007 , 9:53pm
post #57 of 61

When I think of March Madness I think of Basketball only.

I really like the holiday theme or the movie theme.
