Admittedly, this month's site art is pretty unrelated to September (it was originally created for Mother's Day). But I've long been a fan of our September site artist's richly layered and luxurious work, so Gabi (aka @Icingsugarkeks, our Site Art Stylist) and I thought it was high time to feature this talented cookier! And who might be responsible for the cookie content in the gorgeous site art shown below?
Ahh, the banner's lower right corner no doubt gave away our featured artist - but, if you missed that hint, it's none other than @TAMMY HOLMES! Thank you, Tammy, for beautifying our site this month! And thanks as well to Gabi for adjusting Tammy's original cookie images posted here to fit the site's particular banner and backdrop dimensions and other viewing requirements.
In addition to being known for texture-intensive cookies, Tammy loves edible crystals and has built much of her TikTok stardom around them. Just check out her TikTok videos to see! She's compiled a rather impressive collection of both videos and followers! You'll, of course, have an opportunity to learn more about Tammy in her upcoming Cookier Close-up interview. But first, I owe you the interview with our July site artist (@Cookies on Cambridge aka Lori Todhunter). As an FYI, Lori's answers are in, and I'll start the posting of her interview this weekend, with an aim to have it online by mid to end of September. Shortly after that, I'll begin Tammy's interview.
Housekeeping notes aside, please check out Tammy's bio and explore her social media links (below) while waiting for what's sure to be an interesting interview.

Last but not least, for those of you who are wondering how to get featured, it's easy! Simply read these posts here and here. Remember: Site artists not only get their work featured prominently for a full month, but they also get profiled in a forum post like this one and in an in-depth Cookier Close-up interview. All considered, it's a lot of great free PR in exchange for photo sharing! When preparing your site art, please bear in mind that I already have artwork through January 2024, so I am specifically looking for art for February 2024 and beyond. Please also remember that @Icingsugarkeks, our Site Art Stylist, is available to help you get your photos in the right format, so do not hesitate to contact her if you need assistance! You can send her a PM right here on Cookie Connection by clicking on her name (in pink) above.
Thanks in advance for considering a contribution to the site!
