Personal Side


I've been busy this week creating more and more and more new cookie designs for winter.
This week is was one of my favorite subjects, SNOWMEN. 
The fun never ends. :)

I had the privilege of sharing my extra CookieCon book with the winner of the giveaway, 
Misti Ring of RoyalR Confections.
Congratulations Misti! 

I wish I could send all of you that were unable to attend CookieCon a copy of the book..... : /
Hopefully, you're able to see enough pages from the book (with the artists sharing) 
that you get a good idea of what it is like.
I hope your autumn is going well and you are enjoying the season as much as I am.

Here's the cookie scene I contributed to the #CookieCon2015 book
"If You Give a Cookie Decorator an Order".
I jumped on the chance to create CookieConnie at the grocery store
getting ingredients to make her cookies.

A favorite random set of cookies done last fall, using Philippians 4:8,
"Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

2015 PreCookieCon Classes






  

http://cookiecon.net/preeventclasses.php


There was a new feature at this year's CookieCon.
Pre-CookieCon Specialty and Hands-On classes were offered on Wednesday and Thursday
before the actual event began.

I had the honor and privilege to teach classes on glaze and share lots of fun decorating techniques.



The first class was Glaze Cookie Decorating 101: Gratifying Glaze.
This four-hour hands-on class covered all the basics of using glaze.
Most of my students had never used glaze before,
so this allowed them the chance to decorate with it and learn all it's great properties.





The second class (offered both Wed afternoon and Thurs morning) was
Glaze Cookie Decorating 201: It's all in the Details.
This class covered the more advanced techniques I use, in particular adding texture.
We also made edible clay in class, discussed all it's uses, and added it to our class projects.





















What a delightful time we had!
I was a bit nervous, as there was SO MUCH to think about
with doing hands on decorating far away from home.
Just getting all the supplies there and prepping beforehand in the hotel was quite a task.


Two of my students couldn't make it to class because of some severe extenuating circumstances.
So we did a little "make-up" class on Saturday morning
where I attempted to pour everything I could into both of them in a shorter amount of time.
It was fun to have all the one-on-one time.



Thankfully, I had two AMAZING ladies who helped me through the whole process.
We worked hard for about 48 hours straight (not quite enough sleep in there!).
There was lots to do from the moment we arrived at the hotel
until the classes were over on Thursday afternoon.
I could NOT have done it without Nancy Paine and Cristin Sohm.
(Thank you ladies again. I am blessed to have such generous friends!)




The Pre-CookieCon classes were such good experience and
I would do it again without a second thought.

In fact, I'm considering teaching more classes on my own.
If you're interested in helping me set up one in your area,
I need some assistance with a venue and a source of local help.
Email me if you are interested.


 CookieCon was amazing all by itself.....but to add these hands-on classes put the week over-the-top.

Thanks Karen and Mike for the opportunity to share and grow.

Personal Side


Yeah.....I'm back to decorating cookies!
It's been more than a month since I've gotten to decorate cookies in my kitchen, 
and boy, does it feel great. 
I've missed being in my "happy place".

I'm starting to try out some of the new things I purchased at CookieCon,
plus try new techniques and inspiration gained there.
That's one of the coolest things about CookieCon......
what it spurs us on to do afterwards. :)

Be sure to check out the CookieCon book giveaway on Instagram.
The giveaway is open until Sunday Oct 18 midnight, CST.

CookieCon 2015 Book





CookieCon 2015 held lots of fun surprises.

One of them was the creation of this book about Cookie Connie entitled,
"If You Give a Cookie Decorator an Order".

Each of the twenty pages feature a scene full of cookies......created by a different cookie artist.

It is truly a one-of-a-kind book that brings a smile to the face.

The first "official reading" of the book was done at CookieCon 2015 on September 24, 2015.
After the opening ceremony, every participant was given a book.

I had the distinct privilege of designing a page in the book.
When I saw a chance to create a grocery store scene, I jumped at it. :)




The aisle cookies were huge.......around 10" tall at the longest point.




I joked about giving a thumb to Cookie Connie.....as she was thumb-less in the original photos.
But how in the world was she going to hold a grocery list without a thumb?! haha




I put so many ingredients in the grocery cart that you could hardly see the cart cookie itself.

Here's a photo with fewer ingredients so you can actually see a bit more of the cart.




There are so many wonderful pages in the book.














The details are FABULOUS!

..................................................................................................................

I have some good news and some bad news.

First....the bad news. (I always like to get it over with first.)

This book was only made for those who attended CookieCon 2015. It will not be offered for sale. :(

BUT..... the good news....

I have an extra copy that I'm giving away on the CookieCrazie Instagram page!
