Just when I thought I had liberated myself from my own holiday cookie idea torture, I received an email asking if I could create a group of Saint Patrick’s Day goodies.
Saint Patrick’s Day cookies for ‘Real Simple’, a website heralded for its modern, highly functional design ideas for all our everyday living needs, to be precise.
“Sure I can”, I typed back with one hand to the editor, while wiping the sweat that was trickling down my forehead with the other.
After that panic and sweat subsided, the idea came to me. Shamrocks & clover: simple in form, decorated in graphic patterns, celebrating the kind of aesthetic that is ‘Real Simple’.
It worked. They liked it.
And this is the result. I’m over the moon about it!
Do you see the cookie that says ‘Lucky’? That’s how I feel today. Lucky that I can do what I love to do and be paid for it. Lucky for my family, my friends, my good health, my everything.
To celebrate my luck, I want one of you to be lucky, too. I’m letting go of my brand new copy of Julia M. Usher’s most recent book, “Ultimate Cookies”. It’s THE ultimate in cookie decorating. Anything and everything you’ve ever imagined (or in my case, not imagined) is in this book along with detailed, step-by-step instructions for achieving these glorious designs. It’s perfect now for wonderful Easter ideas and other spring holidays.
It can be yours, too. A winner will be chosen at random by Thursday, March 8 and announced on Friday, March 9. Leave a comment here telling me why you should be the lucky winner of this book, and tweet about it. (follow me, too, if you don’t). If you’re new to my Facebook page, ‘like it’.
Celebrate your individuality, your creativity, and of course, your own luck!
