Holiday Hello and Site Update!

 

Hi, Cookie Connection members! 

I wanted to put the holiday rush aside for a moment to thank you all for your wonderful contributions to Cookie Connection in 2017. Without your posts,  comments, likes, and advice to fellow members, this site wouldn't be nearly so fun and enriching! So, again, thank YOU! I sincerely wish you all a joyous holiday season, filled with family and friends, lots of love, and cookies (of course)!

Also, a quick update on what to expect on the site between now and 2018. I am taking three days off from December 23 to 26, so I will not be posting a Saturday Spotlight this weekend. However, please be on the lookout for the following posts over the next few days and weeks leading up to 2018:

  • Summary of recent site feature upgrades, coming tonight (December 23);
  • Cookier Close-up with December site artist, @Alison Friedli (December 27 or 28); and
  • Made by Manu tutorial by @Manu (December 28 or 29).

Also, please don't forget our upcoming live chat on January 13 with participants in this season's Food Network Christmas Cookie Challenge. And, please take a moment to celebrate your favorite cookier and cookie artist by nominating them for a 2017 Cookiers' Choice Award. Nominations close on January 13, so don't delay. Cast your nominations ballot here.

Thanks again, and happy holidays!

I may not be visibly active but I visit often and have enjoyed this year on Cookie Connection as I learned and enjoyed the world of Cookieing. Thank you so much and Merry Christmas to all.
