I'm a mom and a grandma and an occasional cookier. Except for one brief class 12 years ago, I am self-taught via other cookier blogs. tutorials, and CookieCon. I lived on the Texas Gulf Coast for the past 7 years but had to return to my roots in Austin, TX to deal with a cancer diagnosis. I hope to return to cookie decorating once my strength is back! I love the beach, mountains, nature, reading, photography, baking, cooking, and eating out!
