It feels incredibly appropriate that we are wrapping up October with a great big boo-tiful hot list.* I'm sorry, I couldn't resist the pun. I have just been so delighted by all of the recent Halloween-themed posts. So much creativity and cuteness!
Let's take a stroll through our very own sweet pumpkin patch . . .
#1: All the Fall Feels by MegMeACake (I cannot think of a better name for this cozy set. It certainly gives me all the feels, @MegMeACake.)
#3: Vivi's Haunted House by vivi (With all of its ghouls and glow-in-the-dark elements, this clip is quintessential Halloween and just perfect for this week's pre-holiday cover spot. Plus, it's no small feat to have an inaugural post that's so well received! Congrats on your first Cookie Connection clip, vivi!)
#8: A Little Boo Is Almost Due by MegMeACake (Another two-time Spotlightee, this sweet cookie assortment does both Halloween and baby shower duty!)
#9: Mini Haunted House by April Berry (Pink and green are the new black and orange! This delightful 3-D miniature goes to show that Halloween cookies needn't stick with convention to be effective. Thank you for sharing your creation with us, @April Berry!)
How about that?! We started out with all of the fall feels and then galloped to a finish! I hope this week's hot list provided you with a hefty shot of seasonal inspiration.
Keep all of your clips coming. You're helping to keep the site so very festive!
I hope everyone has a pleasant and peaceful week.
So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
