It's cookie time! I am thinking of baking up a couple different batches and putting together some (delicious) gift boxes for some friends and this very kitchen-sinkish recipe sounds and looks like it would be a real winner. I often look to clothing for inspiration, particularly in textile patterns and prints. This particular dress has an amazing print, if you look closely it's step by step directions for how to fold a paper crane. Awesome right? Makes me think that I need to start designing some repeating prints for fabric. Lastly it's too late for this year but I think that this advent calendar would be lovely to look at on a wall for a whole year.
