LilaLoa: Spring. There is a bit of a pencil mutiny at my house this week.
It started with one of the brightly patterned school pencils. My 5 year old told me that something was wrong with it and he didn't want to tell me what it was. I automatically assumed that he had A) jammed it into some unknown crevice in our house just to see if it would fit and now couldn't get it out or B) it had magically written itself all over our newly painted white walls. Neither option was desirable. After chasing him around the house and under the kitchen table, I discovered that a short piece of the graphite core had broken and come out.

Apparently they use tiny bell shaped flowers as cups to drink from. Who knew right?

I decided to take a more modern approach for this cookie design, using a simple round cookie cutter.
