Hi from Southeast Missouri

My name is Lisa and I am married and have two grown children and a wonderful grandson. I consider myself an accomplished home cook and baker but not a cake or cookie decorator. My mother-in-law was a brilliant professional cake and cookie decorator who worked from her home. I learned a bit from her but was busy with my own career goals in healthcare at the time. Now I am semi-retired and interested in making decorated cookies for my grandson with the skills I learned from her and what I can glean from the online community. 

I have one question about the site, is there a way to look at all of the pictures of cookies posted by a single member and then by another? Whenever I see the cookie of the day posts it makes me want to see all of the cookies by that artist, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.

Thank you, Julia and everyone who makes Cookie Connection possible; it is a wonderful resource.

Lisa.

Hi Lisa I loved reading your introductory posting for new members I'm just a regular member myself who loves the site and I keep my eyes open for new members and there have been quite a few lately it's so nice to know that you joined the (batch of cookies) enthusiast crowd I'll be looking forward to seeing and learning more about you in the future again welcome to cookie connection

Hi Lisa! My name is Christine.  If you're on your home computer, hover your mouse over that member's name. A drop down menu will appear, click on the member's name. Then click 'activity' and then 'content.' You will then be able to see all of the photos, videos, etc. posted by that member. Let me know if this helps.

Welcome again! Hope you enjoy the site! What Christine said above is exactly right. This advice is posted in our start-up forum somewhere, but there's a lot in that forum, so I can understand why it might be hard to find. Our Site FAQ also has a ton of useful startup info, so I would suggest reading that if you haven't already. Have fun exploring!

Lucy you are so right I'm still viewing all the Fantastic tutoring videos and massive collection of beautiful cookies I've tried quite a few of the cookie recipes and I found out why some of my own recipes haven't worked out and now how to correct them the site keeps me busy viewing and commenting on The Daily postings of the many Talent an amazing cookie artist their kind and thoughtful responses keep me coming back and of course all the amazing suppliers you can always find that special cookie cutter or molds or sprinkles you've always wanted here on Cookie Connection I can go on and on Lisa you're definitely in the right place now I have to get back and practice on my cookies everyone have a great day because I know I will

I can see that you are right about there being so much to see and learn here. I have already spent days watching the tutorials and gawking at the cookies. I cannot believe how talented all of you cookie artists are, it kind of makes me nervous to try because I know i cannot reach that level of perfection. But I have to practice so I can make those cookies for my grandson's third birthday at the end of January, wish me luck.

Remember,  even though it may not seem like it from the cookies posted here, the site is not about being perfect - it's about having fun and learning as much as you want to learn along the way!

Sorry I missed that, I tried to read all of the welcome and suggested reading materials before i started participating. I seem to always miss something though. I thought it must be there somewhere, everything is so meticulously well organized and beautiful here, like walking into a well kept and luxurious home.
