I wanted to make scarecrow cookies for Thanksgiving. I thought I could make a scarecrow out of a clown, but it turned out that my specific clown cookie cutter wouldn't work as a scarecrow. Imagine Bozo hair and you might be able to see that it just wasn't going to work. Okay, so I ordered a new cookie cutter that I knew would work, but now it was getting very close to Thanksgiving and I figured it wouldn't arrive in time. I was right. Then an idea came to me...
I have that great turkey head cookie cutter that I absolutely love from CopperGifts.com. Why not try to make it into a scarecrow too and double love it! I followed SugarBelle's tutorial for the face of the scarecrow. I used coral luster dust for his cheeks. I tried different colors of straw, but decided I liked the gold best. Thankfully it worked like a charm and my obsession for a scarecrow cookie is filled now ;-)
I also had been wanting to add maize corn to my Thanksgiving to do list and finally got a chance to make those. This corn cutter was one of my favorites this year for Thanksgiving.
I also added a little more detail to my pumpkin pie cookies. This was a brand new cutter for me for Thanksgiving and I absolutely love it. This one is from eCrandal.com.

Turkeys made from a seashell. I just love this one and how brightly colored he is.
More turkeys because of course you have to have 3 styles of turkeys right? ;-)
Leaves - my friend, Vic, asked me to make burgundy leaves so these are mostly burgundy with lots of other colors swirled within the leaf
Pumpkin - yes it's huge, I like big cookies

and a cherry pie too
My friend, Al Bacosa of Bacosa Photography took this amazing photo of my son yesterday. I told him that he recently finished his Eagle Scout project and every time I try to get a photo of him in his scout uniform, it comes out horrible. Look what he did for us. I'm so blessed! If you need a photographer in the San Jose area, you can't go wrong with Al. He is amazing!
