After several years of wanting to do a holiday open house and getting sick each year (lying dejectly with the flu on the sofa when I ought to have been baking instead), I've decided to try it the smart and all-inclusive way. This way I can still plan a party, without having to clean; can still bake, but not have to save all the cookies for one big party.
I mean, let’s be real:
Saving several batches of cookies in the freezer around here would be impossible.
[shaking my head]
So, you are invited to the 2007 (Progressive) Virtual Holiday Cookie Exchange!
Where else but TheFridgeDoor, eh?
Create a tasty little treat* to share:
You can bake, draw, paint, sew, draft it.
Whatever. I won’t be picky.
You could even discover it and share a photo of what you’ve found.
Then, send a digital image of what you’ve created to me.
Or, better yet, why don’t you share a few warm holiday memories and plan a Blog Entry to bring to the Cookie Exchange?
In December (let’s say starting around December 10th), we’ll share all the yummy goodies, nice little coffee breaks for the busy, bustling holidays.
I’d be happy to post images, but it’d be even better to share a list of blogs and postings. It’d be a great excuse for everyone to visit each other and share a memory or two.
Go ahead and forward this post to your crafty and artistic friends and have them whip up a batch of creative (digital) yumminess, too!
My guy, reading the artwork, said "Virtual Cookie swap? Sounds disappointingly low-cal..."
Best wishes to you all.
*Tasty little treats like these, and not like these.
