This month's site art is just in time for Mother's Day, and it couldn't be a more endearing tribute to moms everywhere! Let's give a large round of applause to our May site artist, the very talented @Bożena Aleksandrow, who was most recently featured back in April 2022. Isn't her May artwork absolutely charming?!


Thanks, as always, to Site Art Stylist Gabi aka @Icingsugarkeks for masterfully piecing together Bożena's original cookie posts (here and here) into the lovely site-ready banner and backdrop formats that you see directly above! Now back to Bożena!

Bożena has been a longstanding contributor to Cookie Connection, having joined the site in July 2017, so it's quite likely that you're already very familiar with her and her work. But, if not, please check out Bożena's bio below as well as the in-depth Cookier Close-up interview that I conducted with her back in 2022 when she was first featured. Many thanks again to Bożena for this wonderful Mother's Day contribution, and for her many other extraordinary site submissions over the years!

Bozena@Bożena Aleksandrow is a passionate hobbyist cookie decorator from Warsaw, Poland. In 2014, she started her decorating adventure, which, at the time, was a type of therapy for her in the course of life. Bożena also likes to decorate cakes for her friends and family. Her beginnings in decorating were not easy, and her first works were not delightful. However, Bożena did not get discouraged; instead she persisted and improved her technique. She did not take any courses, but, through trial and error, she became more skilled, confident, and professional. Bożena specializes in lace and floral styles, but she is familiar with other techniques, such as the decoration of 3-D cookies. She is also constantly developing her skills by watching the work of Julia M. Usher and others in the Cookie Connection community. Each work she creates gives her and others great joy and satisfaction. These successes motivate her to take up new challenges. Her family and fans on her Facebook page, Piernikowy Zawrót Głowy, are a great support to her endeavors.

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 all of 2024, thanks to @Icingsugarkeks, but she is currently at work on material for 2025. So don't hesitate to submit your cookies at any time. Please also remember that Icingsugarkeks is available to help you get your photos in the right format, so feel free 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.
