Okay, okay, so I ignored almost every single rule of the challenge (which is one good reason this cookie is labelled "non-entry")! But I couldn't resist submitting something just to have the opportunity to express again how deeply grateful I am for @Bakerloo Station's dedication to the site and all of us for the last five years. Though she and I have never met in person, I feel as if we've become very good friends through this adventure together. She is someone I respect, look up to, and trust with just about anything, which is a lot for me to say. I am sure she is going to be blazingly successful in all of her future pursuits. I only hope that she and I will stay in touch - and cross paths in person one day very soon! XOXO, Christine! You're the best!

P.S. I chose to post this photo, of all photos, because of Christine's love for birds. As I was making this piece a while back, I often paused to reflect if Christine - the master of the folk art bird cookie - would think it was folk arty enough! I hope I passed her test!

I will have more and better words to say later, but I am truly touched. Excuse me for now, but I seem to have something in my eye...

Crying a little bit too . . . 

So beautiful Julia! And what kind and thoughtful words @Julia M. Usher to a lovely and amazingly gifted artist @Bakerloo Station . With the "magic" of technology we can come to know, and cherish, so many others. We don't need to be face-to-face any longer to become close friends with others. I, too, hope that one day the two of you will meet in person . (Can I come?) Hugs across the miles my dear cookie friends  ❀️❀️❀️

I feel so lucky  - not just for Christine, but for all the many contributors who pour their hearts into this site, and for all of you who cherish the connections with them as much as I do.
