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 Heather's cookie tea set here, and, below and in the banner and backdrop, you'll see how @Icingsugarkeks, our Site Art Stylist, tweaked it to work beautifully in these two coveted focal spots. Thanks to these wonderful ladies for making our site so spectacular this month!

I'm eager to reveal more about Heather, but before I do, I have a few housekeeping notes, which are very much the same as last month! I am still a little behind on my Cookie Connection work, but I'm thrilled to report that I am right now wrapping up the interview with our March site artist, @Vanilla & Me, and I hope to post it in a couple of days. Then I'll be embarking on a May interview with @Elke Hoelzle, our April site artist, and then (finally!) I'll turn to Heather's Cookier Close-up interview, likely in June. In the meantime, you can get to know Heather a bit better by reading her brief bio and perusing her social media links below.

Heather Bruce Sossa - Cropped@Heather Bruce Sosa was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her dad was Scottish, and her mum was Anglo-Argentine. Heather married an Anglican missionary, who later became ordained as a pastor, and, together with their five children, they  have lived in several communities throughout the country. For the last 12 years, Heather’s husband has served as chaplain for the PGALA (Professional Golf Association for Latin America), and Heather supports that work in the background.

Heather grew up watching her mum pipe and decorate the most exquisite wedding cakes as her part-time hobby. β€œNanny”, as her darling grandchildren called her, was the name Heather also chose for her business, Nanny’s Cookies, to honor the memory of her mother. Christmas cookies were always a family tradition for Heather, but about four years ago everything changed. Quite accidentally, a whole new world opened up for Heather. She began researching cookies and got captured by @Julia M. Usher’s videos on YouTube, and, soon, a hidden talent started emerging. In January 2018, Heather joined Cookie Connection, which has been such a special blessing, not only for the  learning it allows from so many incredibly talented people, but also for connecting cookiers with beautiful and cherished friends. Decorating cookies has become Heather’s passion. She loves the joy that cookies bring to family, friends, and customers, and that each order is an opportunity to grow and give her very best.

You can see more of Heather's cookie work by visiting her Instagram and Facebook pages and her Cookie Connection portfolio. You'll enjoy what you see!

Thanks again, Heather, for contributing so wonderfully to Cookie Connection over the last three years! I can't wait to learn more about you in your Close-up!

Lastly, if you're interested in being featured in our site banner and backdrop, it's really as easy as submitting your own cookie photos to the "Site Submissions" clip set for review and consideration. Simply read these posts here and here for more info. 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 as I referenced above. When preparing your site art, please bear in mind that I already have artwork through September 2021, so I am specifically looking for art for October through December 2021, 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!

Oh my dear, dear Heather,
we have known each other on this website for quite a while now, we have the same birthday, and yet I always find out new and interesting, also very private things!
Designing Site Art for you was an honor, I loved it so much.
Heather, it is very interesting to read that your dear husband is a pastor and chaplain. Your mom brought you up very Christian and with a lot of love, so it is almost logical for me now that you just post the most beautiful and so apt comments for everyone and everyone that I look at your words in awe every time and for myself think: "Perfect, Heather found the right words ...! Often times I have followed your opinion because it was just perfect !!
Heather, I would like to thank you again for your dear friendship and the many loving and sometimes encouraging words that you have given me and many others so far !! For me you are a really genuine and kind-hearted friend !! I am so happy to have met you here! Stay the way you are, I only wish you the best !! ❀️😘❀️
100000 hugs to you my lovely friend!! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—...

Awww, my dear Gabi, you have filled my heart with gratitude and love. You are so kind, my dear friend! Yes, that is what I love so much about this group, I have found really beautiful friends who are always so understanding and encouraging, besides being the best artists I’ve ever seen! I’m still in awe, but my heart is overflowing with gratitude β™₯️

Oh dear Heather @Heather Bruce Sosa, what a wonderful biography about you . And what a beautiful picture of you ❀️. I just loved reading more about you! Being married to a Pastor has to be very exciting and fulfilling . I have come to love you dearly and cherish your close friendship. We have much in common my dear .  At 20 I got a job assisting missionaries in Italy and lived there for 3 years. (It's where I met my hubby who was in the Navy, stationed in Naples.)

I agree with everything dear Gabi @Icingsugarkeks said about your many kindnesses to each and every cookier on Cookie Connection. Your words of encouragement mean the world to me (and likely everyone else feels the same about your sweet comments). Your work is absolutely gorgeous! I just love seeing your creative cookies.
