Saturday Spotlight: Top Ten First-Timers


Phew! It's been a busy start of 2017 here on Cookie Connection. Just this past month, we had the largest month-to-month increase in membership since March 2015 with 260 new members joining us. Hello, everyone! It's great to have so many new faces here and to see that interest in decorated cookies is still booming!

Now, typically, most newbies lay low for a bit, taking time to browse and get acclimated with the site before they post, which is completely understandable, BTW. But, this month (heck, even in the past week), we seem to have had a record number of newcomers dive in headfirst, with some amazing posts to boot! 

To honor these fearless first-timers, I decided to dedicate this entire Spotlight to some of our most prolific new posters in the last couple of weeks. If you're a Cookie Connection veteran, please take a moment not only to ooh and ahh over their work, but also to bid a warm welcome to those featured here.

And now for this week's honorees, in no particular order . . .

Congrats again to these first-timers on their stunning inaugural posts! I look forward to seeing much more of their work in the coming weeks - and hope the other 200-some members who joined us in January will be spurred to dive in soon. Even if you're just starting to dabble with decorating, we'd all love to see your work too!
