Other than the obvious 4th of July, how about bugs? Butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs...your thoughts!

I like the idea of bugs (of all sorts!), but I think 4th July is too country specific for an internationally subscribed board - that holiday means nothing to those of us outside the USA who aren't American, JMO!

I vote for bugs.

Bugs is good.

Could be beach type cookies - suns, beach balls, swim suits, etc.

This is alot like the old game show on TV $20,000 pyramid! I will take "things in the sky for $1000"
OR "Things you see at a wedding"

Nope, I just have a lot going on LOL... I am at The office more than I am home. If I am home I am baking stuff for people at the office. When I do have some me time and I am not sick I spend it with my honey.

thumbs_up.gif priorities! ImageImage

I do hope you are okay (sickness).....you are missed here.

Cake_Princess Posted 26 Jun 2006 , 3:51am

LOL... ok Im busted. LOL...

tayesmama Posted 26 Jun 2006 , 4:54am

My vote goes for beach stuffs, gives a reason to buy new cookie cutters! LOL icon_lol.gif

momsandraven Posted 26 Jun 2006 , 1:27pm

I like beach stuff too. I know exactly what I'd make if that were the theme. (wink, nudge...) LOL

bonniebakes Posted 27 Jun 2006 , 11:57am

sounds like so far the two front runners are "bugs" and "beach stuff"....

let your opinions be heard, cookie bakers!

newcakelady Posted 27 Jun 2006 , 12:11pm

I vote for beach stuff. thumbs_up.gif

mis Posted 27 Jun 2006 , 12:17pm

Hi, I'm kinda new at this decorating stuff, would I be able to join in on the cookie fun, pretty please? This would give me a reason to practice my cookie making skills. icon_biggrin.gif Oh I'd vote for beach stuff.

Ditto, to all of what she said! icon_biggrin.gif

momsandraven Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 2:07am

mis and Yjudania-
YES! We would love to have you post your cookie pics with us! The more the merrier. icon_smile.gif If you take a look at cake_princess's 1st post in the June Cookie club thread, it will bring you up to speed on how to post your pics, etc. Can't wait to see your contributions!!

leily Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 2:46am

oh OH me me *raises hand impatiently* me me please call on me! icon_lol.gif

What about Patriotism?

Someone had suggested 4th of july but since it isn't recognized all over the world I think Patriotism would be a good way to see differnet things from around the world.

Leily

Samsgranny Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 2:50am

Patriotism works for me too if we don't get enough interest in bugs. I just ordered a bunch of beach stuff from cookiecutters.com so I've got that covered as well. When will the decision be made?

newcakelady Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 11:20am

Okay, I know I already voted for beach stuff, but thought of another one. How about flags? That way we can see them from all different places, either state or country. Or is that too limiting? Just thought it may be different.

bonniebakes Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 7:36pm

Great ideas, everyone. Keep 'em coming!


I'll give it a few more days and then announce the theme that seems to have the most support on July 1.

coffeecake Posted 28 Jun 2006 , 7:51pm

I like the idea of flags/patriotism usaribbon.gif although it does seem kind of limiting - I am always suprised at how unlimited the ideas are as people show there cookies! I do think bugs or beaches would be more fun though icon_rolleyes.gif and like tayesmom, am thinking of some cookie cutters I have been eyeing that may need to be bought.

Can I vote for two months? Final Answer : thumbs_up.gif Beaches for July and Bugs for Aug (cause it will 'bug' me that summer is already over)

The only question I have is--the bugs down here in Georgia are pretty big ,do we have to make cookies as big as our bugs?? icon_eek.gif

txdiann Posted 29 Jun 2006 , 11:58am

I have not participated in your cookie club yet either, but I am going to start this month. I vote for beaches for July and bugs for Aug.

pump_jc Posted 29 Jun 2006 , 12:07pm

I thought of another one -

Picnics! Think of the options if it was picnics!!!!
