Home from Cookie Con…

I am just home from an amazing weekend in Salt Lake City.  I had grand plans of hoping right back into my regular post schedule, but it turns out having fun all weekend is pretty exhausting!  I’ll have several new posts for you soon, but for today I’ll give you a very mini overview…

Karen and Mike Summers of Karen’s Cookies planned, organized and sponsored an event unlike any other!  Cookie Con was the first, large scale Cookie Decorating Convention and Show (that I know of), and was a huge success!

I had the honor of being one of 8 presenters for the weekend, and was amazed and humbled to share the stage with the other presenters (Callye, Lisa, AliMaryann, Liz, Pam and Julia), and meet women from around the world who are “fans” of my work… and whose work I am a huge fan of too!

I’ll share lots more photos and details from the event soon.  For now, more details can be found at CookieCon.net and on the Cookie Con Facebook page.

  16. It was so great getting to meet you at CookieCon. I loved your presentations and even used fondant on my mystery shape! You have inspired me! I really loved the photo presentation also. I’ve been taking photos for years but my cookies always come out looking horrible! But with your tips I won’t be so intimidated!!! Your FB page and Blog are wonderful. AND I especially enjoyed all the info you had on the business end of things you had in Q & A ! Thanks!!
