Just in time for Mother's Day, we're featuring a set of cookies this month that any mom would love. I mean, what woman doesn't appreciate exquisite china? And, moreover, what woman doesn't love to sit over tea (or coffee) and cookies and get caught up with her cookier friends?! (I sure hope we'll be able to do more such connecting sans masks in the coming months!) So, as you can see, @Heather Bruce Sosa 's cookie tea set was a perfect fit for May! You can check out the original version of...Read More...

It looks like she hasn’t posted in two years so I’m guessing she’s not open anymore. So now I’m on the hunt for a cake artist . I’m looking...Read More...

April Stencil Release Delayed Until April 29

· in Tools · 0 replies
For those of you in my Stencil of the Month Club or who await my monthly stencil releases (typically on the third Thursday of each month), just a heads up: this month's release is delayed until April 29 . As I was prepping cookies for it late last week, I discovered a laser-cutting error on one of the pieces. It was minor (in fact, you might not have noticed it), but, rather than send out sets with a known error, my partner and I decided to have that piece re-cut and to re-pack all of the...Read More...

Private Message from Shandi - All Taken Care Of!

· in Important Admin Notices · 0 replies

That member has already been deleted and banned from the site for inappropriate outreach. You can also delete the private message from her under your profile, with no threat of her returning! I personally review every new member profile when someone joins, and sometimes people look legit (as in this case) when they are not. Usually spam members join during the...Read More...
