Are you cookie obsessed?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering how many of you out there are obsessed with cookies, like I am. Anyone else buy products (greeting cards, dish towels, t-shirts, cocktail napkins, etc.) that you don't really need, but you have to have the design so you can make it into a cookie? Of all the places you've found inspiration, what is the funniest...or strangest? Just wondering....

I have always had a bad habit of buying things that I might craft in ANY way! So I have lots of "ones" of things, waiting for me to make the match!!!! Makes decorating the house interesting.....

Yes, yes, yes!!!

I find inspiration in the strangest places... catalogs, greeting cards, magazines, commercials, people's clothes... several times a day I find myself thinking.. "oh, that would make a great cookie!"

If I only had the time (and the talent) to make all of the cookie designs I dream...

Yes, it's ridiculous and expensive! I've got all these napkins that I just KNOW the designs will make great cookies. I actually stopped myself the other day and I was so proud of myself! I also search endlessly online for images. I spend so much time on this that I don't get a lot done around here. Not only that, I'm not really making that many cookies! I wish I could get something done! Ok, I have to go and check out all the other sites I visit. Nothing like some more procrastination! icon_biggrin.gif

i take my digital camera with me everywhere! you get the design without having to "buy" it. i asked someone a couple weeks ago if i could take a picture of their balloon. i have taken pictures of clocks, pajamas, billboards, books...everything! then download, change the size and taa daa! instant cookie cutter!

I once bought a pair of jammies for my baby so I could copy the design onto a cookie. Does that count as obsessed? icon_smile.gif

I bought this photo storage box just the other day 'cuz I loved the design and thought it would make for some beautiful cookies. (I wish you could see how vibrant the colors are in person. It's a great color/design combo.)

Oh, I am not alone!! icon_lol.gif I seem to find inspiration everywhere! I am always sketching things I see to use as inspiration to bounce off of later. Hmm.. the funniest one? An anatomically correct book on crustaceans so I could figure out how to do lobster's claws. Mine ended up looking completely different, but I wanted to make sure I got the right idea. My husband thought I was a nut for the amount of time I spent on that. That and the amount of time I spent trying to make sure I got a simple sailboat design right. I kept finding different technical sketches that didn't match, so I called a sailing shop in CA to ask one of the pros there just where my jib should go. He got a kick out of that.

I find that the world is full of cookie inspiration. icon_biggrin.gif I found myself staring at a tattoo once. Luckily, I was not noticed as that would have been funny to explain. icon_lol.gif
