has unusual holidays in january...
I rather like 'jump out of bed month'; 'oatmeal month'; 'someday we'll laugh about this week'; 'national chocolate covered cherry day'; and 'fancy rat and mouse day'...oh, dear!

Well the only thing I can think of for January is football (don't know why cuz I HATE footballl icon_razz.gif ) But maybe we could do all sorts of sports...baseball, football, hockey, etc... since this is not a major holiday month.

Mozart's birthday - Jan 27
Penguin Awareness Day - Jan 20
Robbie Burns Night - Jan 25
Oprah's birthday - Jan 29
Australia Day - Jan 26th

"fancy rat and mouse day"?????

There really is a holiday for everything!! icon_biggrin.gif



here are some other ideas...

* winter sports
* things that make you feel warm and fuzzy
* snow

what about "what do you wish for?" sorta like i wish i had a red corvette, then i could make red corvette cookies or i wish i weighed 120lbs then i could make scale shaped cookies with 120lbs iced on it....i'm probably not helping but this just sorta popped into my head....oh wait a minute, what about "let loose the imagination" and then we could really go wild with them....

How about the fancy rats and mice doing winter sports? icon_biggrin.gif
they would be warm and fuzzy... icon_redface.gif

sweetamber Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 6:38pm

bonniebakes- not fair to do "snow" as a theme since several people (myself included...) did snowflake cookies for the december theme! WAH! I like a football or general sports theme, since there are a lot going on in January.

Any possibility of getting the rule on uploading cookie club photos to the gallery changed? If you notice, there is now a "date uploaded" in the info for each pic...

I like the what you wish for idea !! icon_smile.gif Makes it more interesting seeing the story behind the cookie. Just my 'pinion icon_redface.gif

TaraRowan Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:10pm

would someone mind telling me the "rules" for the cookie exchange?

I'm new here icon_redface.gif

mrsw Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:21pm

What about Circus theme? All types of animals, clowns, or even get crazy with side show stuff like rides, fortune tellers, Coney Island things?

Or maybe the mouse olympics?

onceuponacake Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:32pm

new too..what is the cookie club?

jelligirl Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:42pm

bonnie,

can you explain the rules for the cookie theme club? i can't find anything about this.

please and thank you icon_smile.gif

mbalis Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:42pm

For the newbies....the monthly cookie club is where you post pictures in the cookie forum [not your personal gallery] according to whatever the monthly theme is....

look thru this forum and you'll see prior month's posts. You just make cookies to fit the theme.

Hope that explains it alright....from a bum who has never posted to it, lol.

sweetamber Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 7:43pm

Read the first post here:

mbalis! i'm at work trying to not to laugh out loud icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

NEWTODECORATING Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 8:01pm

A while back someone suggested that "we" (and I use the term loosely seeing that I haven't entered any cookies lately) do a month dedicated to girly things, shoes, lipstick. pretty dresses..... I liked that idea.

Yjudania Posted 29 Dec 2006 , 11:25pm

I like the idea of sports.

New, New beginnings , the New year, New years dreams, my names babynewyear my new start was cake decorating. icon_biggrin.gif Although I need to do cookies. tapedshut.gif havent yet.

JaneK Posted 30 Dec 2006 , 1:17am

I really like babynewyear's suggestion of "new" something or other..could be very creative and the stories would be great!

fmandds Posted 30 Dec 2006 , 4:59am

Things that start with the letter "A" since its a new year and "A" starts off the alphabet. Thats my 2 second brainstorm while reading this thread.

I like the "new" idea or the "wish" idea.

mxpark Posted 30 Dec 2006 , 5:42am

how about we make cookies that reflect what our new year's resolutions are? like someone's (sorry don't remember who it was and too lazy to go back and check) scale cookies. we can make hour glass cookies or money cookies or a cookie w/ a slash through it would be funny for those who resolved to diet.

i think football should go in february because that's when superbowl is.

tayesmama Posted 30 Dec 2006 , 5:47am

I second the "wish" or "new" ideas. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

momsandraven Posted 30 Dec 2006 , 8:45am

Hmmm... lots of cool ideas suggested! The first thing that popped into my head was resolutions, so I'll second mxpark's idea. icon_smile.gif I like the 'Wish' idea too though. We just did sports in the fall, so I'd rather go with something different.
