Stress Awareness Month - is only in April? Geez when you're decorating cookies or cakes I thought it was every month!! icon_lol.gif
I haven't done any of the monthly themed cookies yet, but would like to for April... here's hoping a good one is picked!
My vote goes to the idea of "spring has sprung" by Destini

nikkifoster Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 12:06am

bobwonderbuns Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 12:20am

Well at Gilda's Club they want Spring Flowers for our April class. Last year we did April Showers bring May flowers but they want the flowers early this year...icon_rolleyes.gif

Oh, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Melvira, I just noticed your new signature! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

BarbaraK Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 10:17am

How about a regal/royalty theme?

April 1st = April Fools Day = Court Jester = Royalty

Too far fetched??

thecupcakemom Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 10:31am

Holy Cow, cinderspritzer. Imagine if we had jobs for all those days listed!! icon_lol.gif

Melvira Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 12:56pm

Ooooh BarbaraK... that's using your noggin!! I LOVE that idea. Well, if we can't do the lover's theme, it's the second best so far! hahaha!

7yyrt Posted 24 Mar 2007 , 1:14pm

I asked my husband to tell me what his first thought was when I said 'April' (trying to get a new idea for cookie club).
He said 'rain and floods' icon_confused.gif
I'm not too sure I could make cookies about rain and floods... umbrellas?..Noah's ark?.. house cookies half-submerged in a bowl of blue frosting?..

Can you tell it's been raining here?
