Battle/Challenge: December Flash Mob
Team: Multimedia
Project Name:
Mamavanbuck's Famous Cookies - Christmas Edition
Brief Description: I made these for a Christmas Cookie Swap.  They are a variation of a slightly strange but very easy cookie recipe that my mother was well-known for making.
Project Picture:

1 box spice cake mix + 1 egg + 2/3 cup canola oil + 1/2 bag cinnamon chips =

delicious spice cookies!

Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes.  This recipe can easily be adapted into any number of varieties by switching out your cake mix flavor and add-ins; the original formula calls for butter cake mix, chopped pecans, and toffee brickle bits.

Current Swaps:

    vincentvanbuck: Oh, man, those cookies sound good!

    amymarie78: your tiny fruits are so cute! I'm sure they will come in handy.

    Thanks for the congratulations on my project being featured! Sorry I haven't been as talkative lately. Christmas and work have been keeping be busy.
    And a huge thanks to all of you who closed out the Summer and Fall editions! Wow!

    Please let me know if I miss pinning anyone's fabulous project to our pinterest board or if I totally mess up some other way.  Smiley

    Challenge: December: Marching To Your Own Drum
    Team: Textbook
    Bonus Points: n/a
    Project Name: Many Sides of Me T-Shirts
    Project Page Link (if available): n/a
    Brief Description: Since I couldn't decide which shirt to post, I decided to post all of them as one project... Each of these shirts is a gift, but I could proudly wear each of them (well, I'd have to redo the binary shirt because it spells "Zack" and that's definitely not my name) because they represent many of the ways I do my own thing. I am definitely a geek, as 2 of the shirts can attest to, and I'm not afraid to try to learn a new skill (I'm often asked, "Is there anything you can't do?" and I always reply, "There are a lot of things I can't do..." while inside, I'm silently adding, "...yet!"). If it catches my interest, I want to learn it/be able to do it (my username is definitely NOT a misnomer!), and I have stacks of projects waiting for me to get around to them.

    Project Picture:

    This shirt is for a student who is not living under the best circumstances right now. As he passes me in the hallway, or leaves my classroom, he makes the Vulcan sign. I don't make gifts for my students very often, but this one just needed to be made. I got the Spock stencil on Stencilry and added the text (and yes, I do own a Star Trek font...). It's done with heat transfer vinyl that I cut using the Silhouette Cameo (all shirts were made with this technique). It's all black, but I couldn't get a decent photo without some "shiny" areas.

    This shirt is for the son of 2 of my college friends (both engineers). He's a bit of a know-it-all, and I'm sure he'll feel superior because he understands binary, and many others won't...

    And this one is for my canning buddy as part of her canning-themed Christmas gift (I also got her 2 canning books). I saw the idea somewhere (maybe here... but  maybe on somebody's blog), and knew I had to make one for her (I'll make one for me after the holiday rush). The very thin vinyl letters were a bit fiddly, so I may attempt a silkscreen version (and maybe make a few for some other folks... maybe dish towels...).

    I have a Cameo that I don't use much.  My goal is to really work with it more this upcoming year.  I got a new cutting mat and everything!

    Those shirts are great!  I haven't worked with the heat transfer stuff much but I have attempted to cut stencils out with the Cameo with mixed results...

    I have one more December project to post.
    Battle/Challenge: December Flash Mob
    Team: Wordy
    Project Name: Snowmen Magnets
    Brief Description: I made these guys for my co-workers to go along with their little gifts from me.  Since we live in Arizona and don't ever get any snow I am always drawn to little snowmen, icicles, and such around the Holidays.
