Are you cookie obsessed? - Page 2

post #16 of 57
Ok, My name is Sol and I'm cookie-making adicted... icon_lol.gif
I just started this year to make a lot of new designs for my cookies. Right now all my inspiration has come from all of you guys and from some gals at flikr...
The strange part is that some of my cutters start looking funny, like a triangular guitar I made, the cutter looks like it's for an X-rated cookie(man's anatomy)

Now, if you actually GOT the tattoo, I think that would qualify you as the most cookie obsessed person on the planet! Just staring....simple obsession!

And I'm going to have to start carrying my camera around with me more!

Of all the places you've found inspiration, what is the funniest...or strangest? Just wondering....



I don't do it for cookies but "collect" things for cakes. I have taped to my refrig for over a year now a square Hawaiian paper plate because I loved the design. I don't have the talent you ladies do to hand make cookies but I certainly LOVE that all of you share your talents with us! If anyone wants to sell their big toe to me, I'd be grateful! icon_wink.gif

I was putting something away for my mother in her china cabinet just now... and I kept looking at patterns on the tea cups and other little collectibles she had....

... and I ended up taking pictures of some for cookie designs!

Same here ladies. I am pretty new to all of this and everywhere I look now I find myself looking for ideas. icon_eek.gif

Ooh-ooh-ooooh! (Stretching hand really high like Arnold Horshack!) I find inspiration everywhere and often have to keep from buying something "just to make into a cookie".

I find that there aren't a lot of patterns/ideas out there for Jewish holidays so I am more likely to buy something if I think it will work. My best example was of a Snoopy Hanukkah wrapping paper. I don't have any "little" ones anymore, but I bought it so I could adapt it into my Snoopy Chanukah cookie (I added the Menorah and put Woodstock next to Snoopy).

Probably the oddest place I've found inspiration was in our basement. I found this ancient tin full of nails on top of the water heater and it has some of the most interesting Jewish holiday patterns on it!!

P.S. My 15 year old daughter caught me staring at a tattoo once, and kept trying to distract me saying I was being rude. She just rolled her eyes when I said it would make a great cookie!

Yesterday, I was cleaning out a drawer and found an old anniversary card my husband bought for me. I was about to throw it out but then noticed a beautiful vine backround (i never used to notice these things), so i put it into my cookie files.

I'm soooo glad to hear others buy stuff just for cookie inspiration! Here I thought I was the only one! icon_lol.gif

I'm not so much obsessed with stuff for inspiration for cookies as I am with cookie cutters!

I want every cutter I see that I don't already have. It's getting to the point where they are the ones that go for $15 and up!
I've been collecting them before I even started to actually use them!

I am also a cookie cutter collector. I am running out of room to store them all. I probably have 20 storage containers filled. It won't stop me from buying more though. Bought 3 today while I was out. I wish I had endless time to try them all out. I like to look at kids stickers and all the new wedding and shower invitations and thank you cards. Wrapping paper and scrap booking papers are alway neat too.
