August Cookie Club Theme

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
OK fellow cookie addicts I Would first of all like to apologize for not being around as much as I should. Things have been really hectic for me. So occasionally I pop on here but I am never here for too long. If I am, I have the laptop on and I am away. To give you an example of how hectic things are, in the last 48 hours I have spent a total of 24 hours at the office. So once again I apologize.

Secondly, I would like to thank Bonniebakes for being so amazing and keeping this club on track. She has been around more than I have and simply a doll. So thank you Bonnie we all appreciate what you have been doing for our little club.

Finally, we need a theme for August. Please submit ideas to this thread so we Can have the theme up and running by Saturday The latest. So have all the ideas in by Friday. I know this is not much notice but the sooner we have a theme the sooner you guys can get baking.

Also, it was brought to my attention that someone had a concern about the way the themes were voted on. We will look in to this as soon as possible to see if this can be improved upon.

Cake Princess- No need for the apology! Life is busy and there things that come before cookies! (ok not many but family and work seem to rank high) icon_lol.gif I think alot of us were hoping for bugs but we will see what else is mentioned. I am open to anything really. I haven't been able to participate as much as I would like either. I am really gonna give it a good try this month though. (I have something I want to try shhh.gif )

Well I hope life slows down some for you, and don't forget to make time for yourself!

I was thinking the same as cowdex, I guess September could be a good back to school month. I like the bug idea as well. I have a lot to learn, just starting out with cookies, so please forgive my messy attempt. Thank you Cake_Princess for starting this up.
You take the cake!!!!

I'm all for bugs .... I don't want to think about back to school yet as it means that summer is coming to an end. But then again, with this heat it's probably not a bad thing for any of us!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I have liked the idea of bugs but I also think it is limiting. Seems like it would be a lot of the same things. Maybe we could expand it to 'nature' or something like that. JMHO icon_smile.gif

Other than butterflies and ladybugs, I really can't see any other bug cookies being very attractive or fun to make. I don't mind the category at all because I would love to make butterflies and ladybugs--but it would be limiting as Yjudania stated.

Here are a few other themes I thought of (keep in mind I don't know what the past themes have been other than the seashore cookies I saw recently):

Fashion: dresses, shoes, hats, t-shirts, ties, purses, etc.
Animals
Sports
Fruits & Vegetables
Baby-related: rubber duckies, teddy bears, carriages, bottles, blocks, etc.

Well, that's about all I can think of. icon_smile.gif

Bugs for me. (we start school Monday already...that really bugs me!)

As for limited ideas on bugs, you don't have to use an exact bug-cutter for your cookie. You can use any shaped cutter and your imagination to come up with oh, um, say bookworms, lovebugs, picnic ants, etc. icon_confused.gif You don't have to make a lot of the theme cookies either. You can make one cookie as you're rolling out other batches. It's just a way to see what kind of creative juices are flowing out there. (and there's a lot so far! icon_wink.gif except for of course Cake_Princess who we're not even sure makes cookies anymore! icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif )

I agree with the majority so far, BUGS. As Kos said, you don't necesarily have to have a 'bug' cutter to participate and I never make more than a few and cut out other styles to fit other themes. Let's get our creative juices flowing; are you up for a challenge???
