I love my neighborhood. It's a fabulous area in a small artsy city. It's eclectic with all sorts of people living in it. Students renting for just a few months, people who've bought houses that they're renovating and still other's who've lived here their whole lives and everything in between!
Someone or some group took advantage of the fact that we all don't know our neighbors like people used to (and in some areas still do).
In response my little neighborhood has come together. We're all making an effort to know each other and keep our area safe by forming a neighborhood watch. I've volunteered to be "captain" of my street.
I'm excited to get to know my neighbors better. I don't know anything about a neighborhood watch. What I do know is that I'm not a clipboard and checklist kind of girl.
I'm more the gift bag type.... so when I go door to door to meet people and give them information the information is going to be with cute little bags. Complete with cookies.
But what the heck kind of a cookie says neighborhood watch!
I didn't think I had anything that fit so I started making a list. Here's what I was able to find. (These are some of the most random cookie cutters I think I've ever looked for.)
Earthmover (nothing to do with this, but seriously an earthmover cookie cutter!)
A Spy... which looks an awful lot like the crime watch "criminal" icon.
An eye- which is kinda creepy, and I don't think I'd use it although it's also the crime watch logo
Then it hit me....
A house is perfect. Not complicated, I've already got it and it fits!
Now all I have to do is figure out what flavor- sugar cookie, maybe gingerbread?
