Once again, I took the easy way out (at least for me) by posting my cookie art this month. Gabi (aka @Icingsugarkeks) still had to piece together my art into the required formats for the site's banner and backdrop, so she was as busy as ever. I thank her for her diligence in keeping our site looking pretty and for always staying several steps ahead of me. (She already has our site art mapped out through the end of 2023!) Of course, I love the sparks of creativity that she applies to our site art as well! (How about that bee buzzing about my snowdrops?! ) And, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out her special knack for making my cookie art look better than it did in real life and in my photos. Case in point, below:
So, as always, I bow down to Gabi's talents! Thank you, my friend!
As for me?! I'm still trying to catch up on Cookier Close-ups with past artists, which is why I opted to show my work this month. Rather than add more Close-ups to my list, I AM going to wrap up what's in process over the coming week. The interview with @Gina's Cake and Icing Cookies is well underway. Though required translations have taken us both a little more time than predicted, the interview promises to be a super interesting one! Stay tuned for it soon!
As much as I hate posting my work in such focal spots, I must admit that this collection does rather get me into the springtime spirit - which is something I need after our especially temperamental winter! I hope you find it pleasing in that way too.
Last but not least, 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. When preparing your site art, please bear in mind that I already have artwork through December 2023, so I am specifically looking for art for January 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!
