I took 3rd Place in Taste of Home Cookie contest!

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Woo Hoo! I get a check in the mail, no letter explaining what it is for, and I'm wondering if it's legit. I notice a notation in a statement column that says "3rd Pl Wizard of Oz". Think. Think. Oh, yeah! I entered my 3D Wizard of Oz cookies in the Taste of Home cookie contest. Looks like I won 3rd place! My husband says, "That's nice, honey". Hey, this was a national contest...it's more than nice. I'm doing the happy dance!

Even though the check won't allow me to quit my day job, "We're in the Money" is a nice song for how I'm feeling. Seriously, I'm just ecstatic! I thought it might be a let down to not be first (okay, I'm competitive), but I couldn't be happier.

If it's like the cake contest the magazine ran last year, the top three entries will be published in an upcoming edition...I just have no idea what month. I'll certainly be looking with interest!

My thanks to all you inspiring cookie artists! I never would've taken up cookie decorating it I hadn't found this website, and I certainly would never have thought to create 3D cookies. What a huge impact CC has had on my life!

That is so awesome! You should be very proud of yourself. Leave it up to a husband to say "that's nice honey" very typical!! Ha ha ha! You definitely deserve it! Great job.

Everyone's comments are greatly appreciated!

On another note...anyone else not receiving a notice that something has been posted on a topic you've been watching? I have the "notify me" box checked, so I know that's not it. I'm not receiving a notice on comments to my pictures, either. Just wondered if it's something that will sort itself out and if anyone else has experienced this.
