Christmas Tree Cookie Collaboration

Homespun Christmas Tree Cookie Collaboration

A couple of weeks ago Pam, from CookieCrazie, invited me to be a part of a collaboration to create something special with the homespun christmas tree cutter we had received at CookieCon.  Before I get to my Christmas tree cookie creation, have to tell you a little about Pam. It was about a year ago, I was strolling through pictures on  flickr and stumbled across Pam’s cookies. Then I read her bio! Then I got so SUPER excited. She makes cookies to raise money for her church missionary efforts in the Ukraine.  Oh my gosh! I make cookies to raise money for our mission efforts in the Sudan. Now you have to keep in mind, back then I had no idea that a cookie world existed. I mean no clue.  I had no idea of how many women bake amazing cookies to raise money for different causes. I sent Pam an email, I was so excited to find someone doing somthing similar to what I was doing. I started stalking, I mean following her blog. If you have not been to Pam’s blog it is a wealth of knowledge for the cookie maker. It’s like I had hit the jackpot. At that time I was still trying to fill a cookie with out it being a complete disaster.

There may have been dancing and some singing but we will keep that on the down low. Do you love this cutter? You can get a homespun Christmas tree too, over at Karen’s Cookies. Want to know a unique little fact about this cutter? The proceeds from the sale of the homespun christmas tree cutter go to the mission effort in the Ukraine.

Have you been listening to Christmas music lately? I have. I love Josh Groban’s Christmas album. His voice is so amazing.  My favorite song that he is O Holy Night. Feel free to click over to the youtube video, so you can listen as you stroll through the Christmas tree pictures. Last year I had such great plans for my Christmas cookies. But it never came together in time. I wanted to take my favorite Christmas carol’s and put them on cookies. Now I finally have an excuse to get this done.

Christmas Tree Cookies

 I would love to put all my favorite carol’s on cookies.

But for now, I choose my favorite lines for O Holy Night.

Christmas Cookies

Can you imagine?

A night where no street light could drown out the beauty of the stars.

A night, not like any other.

Christmas Tree Cookies

This line has always fascinated me.

Ever since I was a little girl.

Can you imagine hearing angel’s sing?

I love the sound of the human voice in beautiful song.

But what must angel’s sound like?

O, night divine.

Yes, what a divine night that must have been.

Oh wait, we are not done yet. There are a lot more Christmas tree cookies to see.

    Melissa!!! I love your use of this cutter. It is like it was made for this scene. So beautiful!

    PS.: We used to shared similar sentiments over Gingerbread Houses, mine changed few years back. I hope you’ll make some this year! 😉

    1. melissa says:

      Thank you! I fell in love with you little gingerbread houses today. Im definitely going to give it a try. I have never made one.

  2. Awesome set of cookies!! I’ve been belting out “O Holy Night” the past few days while making Christmas cookies. I try to sing along to Kelly Clarkson’s version when no one else is home. Now that I think of it… I’d be super embarrassed if I come to find out my neighbors could hear me.

    1. melissa says:

      Thanks! Ha I would love to be a fly on the wall to hear you belting it out~

    I got goosebumps as I read your post……and tears in my eyes too. What a sweet post. I am thrilled that I could encourage you a year ago. And to see where we are now……and to wonder where we are headed. So exciting!

    Your post was beautiful. And when I looked at your collection of O Holy Night cookies, that’s when the tears flowed. Christmas is such an amazing time……but the most amazing part is that Jesus came to earth for US! What love.

    Blessings to you, my friend. I hope we can do many more collaborations together. 🙂 ♥
