Hi everyone,

Sorry it took me a while to get this posted after our discussion thread. I had my wisdom teeth removed last week and I'm a little slow in catching up on everything...

So, here we go!

The consensus from the group in that discussion thread about whether or not to keep the cookie club going was to have the theme for January 2011 to be "winter."

Just to refresh your memory (and for any new members), here are the "guidelines" for the cookie club posts (based on Cake_Princess' original post from a few years ago):

*Anyone can join us any month they choose! We love to have new members! This isnt a contest, just a way to share ideas, be creative, and learn new things related to cookies!!

* The group consensus was that all pictures must be new pictures (and new cookies). Meaning if you have a previous pictures of cookies already in your album (or in the forum) even if it depicts the theme, please do not use them for your entry in the cookie club. The idea of the monthly theme is to get our creative juices/new ideas flowing.

* Please post pictures in this thread (Do not create a separate thread for your pictures).
** in cases where there are technical difficulties with the CC site, it is OK to post your pictures in your photos on CC and put the link in the thread.

* Please wait to post monthly theme cookies to your personal album/ cookie Gallery until after the monthly theme has expired (the end of the month). I know you are anxious for everyone to see your cookies in your album, but keeping the monthly theme creations in only the thread for the entire month helps to increase traffic to the cookie club thread, which will help to keep it going and hopefully get more people interested in taking part. When the month is over, please feel free to post as many pictures as you wish to the galleries. We do love to see pictures!! (see above for picture-posting difficulties)

* Feel free to use any edible medium to decorate your cookies - fondant, royal icing, butter cream etc. The only stipulation is it has to be a medium used in cookie or cake decorating (so no play-doh!). In your post, please let us know about your creation the type of cookie, the medium you used to decorate your cookies, any techniques that you used, etc.

* The purpose of choosing a monthly theme is to have a central theme for everyone participating to follow in order to allow us an opportunity to be creative, try new things, and learn from each other. Please try to follow the monthly theme. If the design choice is not obvious, please let us know why you chose the design you did (for example, if the theme was Music and you made ghost cookies then let us know the connection. Ghost = Phantom and Phantom of the opera > music).

* The theme is chosen at the beginning of each month by the first person to post a picture the previous month. That person should PM Bonniebakes with your theme choice before the month is over so that the new thread can be started on the 1st of the month (or within a day or two from the 1st).

Happy Baking, everyone! I cant wait to see the results!!

newintown, those cookies are absolutely adorable! Love the colors, and the kids are as cute as cute can be! I'm hoping to get a photo uploaded this evening. I haven't had much luck in getting the laptop away from my son and my husband!

Bobwonderbuns, the snowflakes are beautiful. I love how they sparkle!

Bonniebakes, those are great sweaters! Perfect winter cookies!

Newintown, welcome to the cookie club! Your little winter sports kids are so cute! Do you have cutters for them or did you cut them freehand?

This month went by way too fast! Hopefully, I can participate again next month.

Thank you all for your nice comments. I'm looking forward to the February theme .

Letsgetcaking .- I only have the snowflake cutter the others are freehand, actually the designs are not mine, I found those little guy on the web and just add the skies and skates.
