Little Leaf Faces

The last few days have been kind of rough around here. There has been way too much "scary" and "creepy" and "pumpkins eating other pumpkins." I'm afraid to go to bed at night because I will dream about being chased by pumpkins that want to eat me. And my legs never work. (WHY can I never run in my dreams?!) And then I stay awake all night doing internet research on "what to do when pumpkins attack." I've taken to eating inordinate amounts of ice cream right before bed, hoping desperately to fall into a sugar coma and not awaken until morning. Something had to change.

After I saw Meaghan's cookies at The Decorated Cookie, I knew these had to be made. I had no choice. I was running out of ice cream. Plus, how cute are these little guys? They are totally friends. Friends that don't eat each other. Ever. Not even for pretend.

And this little guy? Definitely my favorite. He's so cute. And happy. And kind of crooked in a way that makes me want to squish him and be friends with him forever. And also, judging solely on looks, he's not likely to want to eat me. (Which, for the record, is a definite PLUS on the plus/minus scale.)

And they are so easy to make. I could make myself a whole little army. Obviously, a NICE little leaf army that would only attack if threatened by pumpkins that eat other pumpkins.

I have been on this unprocessed food kick and I would maim a scary pumpkin for one of your chocolate cookies! Of course I would rather have the cold raw dough, but really anything chocolate! These are cute!

You are SOoOoOoO talented! (giggle) I think I may have found a way to join two of my loves-- sewing and baking! Those cute "stiches" (love 'em) But the eyes make the cookie!

I'm starting to wonder what I'm going to do with these guys. I mean...it's not like I can eat them now!

Susie -- HOW LONG has it been since you've had a cookie? We need to have an intervention or something. Cookies are like vitamins. I think.

Who can resist these little cuties! They make me smile.

P.S. I can never run in my dreams (nightmares) either, nor can I ever scream...why is that?!

I love the faces, the leaves are super cute and sweet.

SUPER cute Georganne! Your posts are always so much fun. As far as dreams... for some reason I never hit very hard in my dreams when I have to defend myself. I have a Black Belt in karate so that really doesn't work well for me to think that I can't actually punch hard ;-)

Super cute leaves!! Love everything about them.

Glora said...

These are SO super adorable! I love that stitching on them. IS that hard to do with cookies? It looks hard. I'm totally impressed. Hugs- Glora
