Silvery Pink Valentine Cookie Tutorial...In Print!

Sometimes, there are things you wish for without even realizing it.

Sometimes, there are little dreams you have for yourself,
that hang out in the corners, just waiting to come out and play.

And sometimes,  every now and then, they come true.

Oh my word, I have a 'by-line'...that's my name up there!

Last July I was asked by the editor of Stitch, Craft, Create Magazine 
to create a cookie tutorial for their January/February issue.

Until now, they've been primarily a sewing and fabric arts publication, 
but are branching out into sugar arts as well.

They asked for lots and lots of pictures and requested the 
cookies be decorated in pale pink and silvery grey. 
 Other than that, I could create whatever I liked!

I'm still pinching myself.

Just in case someone wants to pick up a copy...

You can order it from the SCC website HERE,

you can find it at Michael's,  JoAnn's and Barnes & Noble,

Or you can order it from Amazon...there's even a kindle edition!

By the way...big big thanks to Shannon Miller for the opportunity!!

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
