I have two little girls ages 6 months and 3 years and the other day, it struck me that Christmas is pretty much devoid of female characters. Sure, we have Mrs. Claus, but she’s primarily defined by her relationship to the big guy. By the way, I have a strong suspicion that Mrs. C is one who’s really making the lists and checking them twice!
Frosty, Rudolph, the little drummer boy, the Nutcracker.
Where are the ladies, ya’ll?
Elves, too, are generally thought of as male, but I’d like my daughters to think of boy AND girl elves. After all, the elf gals are just as capable as their male counterparts at designing and building children’s toys. Not so sure? Just check out the awesomeness that is Goldblox!
Several weeks ago Hani of Haniela’s and Mike of Semi Sweet Designs contacted me and a few other bloggers with the fabulous idea of throwing a virtual baby shower for our friend Jennifer from Not Your Momma’s Cookie. I’ve been following Jennifer’s pregnancy on her blog for the past several months and am so excited to virtually celebrate her new baby girl, Seraphina!
When I learned the shower’s theme, “baby girl geek”, I was even more stoked! I’ve been chewing on robot girl designs for ages and thanks to Jennifer’s shower and her new little smoosh, their time has finally come!
Today is a really exciting day at Make Me Cake Me! We’re hosting our first ever guest post and our guest is none other than Lisa of The Bearfoot Baker!
If you don’t already know Lisa, she’s an incredibly talented cookier with a blog chock full of easy-to-follow tutorials, adorable royal icing templates, and helpful how-to videos. I’ve been following her work since I first started cookie-ing and the fact that she’s here… on my little ol’ blog… I can’t believe it!
So without further ado…
Hi! My name is Lisa and I have a blog called The Bearfoot Baker. Michelle and I share a love of decorating sugar cookies and she asked if I wanted to hang out with you guys today. I was thrilled and am so glad to be here! I thought we could make some simple turkey cookies with sanding sugar feathers. This is a great cookie to make with kids.
