I discovered my love for cookie decorating the Christmas after I lost my mom, which was just last year.
I think I was trying to compensate for her absence by making fudge, divinity and "fancy" Christmas cookies.
I found that the creative process in decorating cookies gave me an outlet to cope with my grief and I've been hooked ever since!
I've had a few orders for special events and have been paid. However, I have never marketed my skills as a company or business and I'm not sure I ever will.
To me, decorating cookies for hire takes a lot of the enjoyment out of the creative process and doesnt give me the freedom to create at my own pace. I must also admit, I am extremely critical of my work and feel I have a long way to go before posting any photos of my work anywhere online, which is a must if I am going to market my work.
For now, I love admiring other cookiers creations and learning a little at a time from all of them.
There are so many amazing cookiers out there and love being apart the cookie community.
It is without a doubt the most helpful and friendly community I have ever had the privilege of being a apart of. ��
