I took 3rd Place in Taste of Home Cookie contest! - Page 2

post #16 of 39
GeminiRJ - I just thought of something... I remember seeing that you were planning to have your 3-d cutters manufactured for you. If you have done that, is there any way at all you can get the ordering information posted next to the picture of your cookies in that issue of "Taste of Home"? I can only imagine the orders you would get!

I just didn't know if you were up and running with that yet. Please do keep us informed when the issue comes out. I keep looking for your cookies when I see one of their magazines. icon_biggrin.gif

About a week after the check arrived, I received a letter telling me I'd won 3rd place with the cookies, and they included a copy of the magazine. Unfortunately, unlike with the cakes, they only printed pictures of the first place winners. (And it was pretty dinky!) You have to go online to see the 2nd and 3rd place winners, and you have to be a subscriber as well. Another unfortunate for me, as it's my MIL who subscribes to the magazine and then passes it along to me. When I told her about needing a password to log on, she just gave me a blank look. Obviously, she's as computer savvy as I am! Not.

And yes, TracyLH, I've been doing moderately well selling the 3D cookie cutter kit. I hit a roadblock with a family issue, which sapped much of my initiative. It's been a really rough summer and fall, actually. But I continue to send out a kit or two!

I grabbed my magazine before I read the above post. Guess what? Couldn't FIND you! LOL Did go online but couldn't find the contest winners. I'll try later, though. I know they are adorable!

CONGRATS!!!

The actual photo I sent in wasn't digital. However, if you go to my photos and scroll down, the Wizard of Oz cookies that I entered in the contest are some of the first ones I posted here on CC. And thanks to everyone for your nice comments!

Wow, way to go! That is definitely something to be proud of. I won 20 pounds (!!!) of sausage in a recipe contest one time and I was doing a happy dance, too. Though I'm not quite sure what song you dance to when a big box of sausage arrives at your door. icon_biggrin.gif

Congratulations! I saw the picture on the TOH website. I'm so proud of you, and I'm sure that the rest of our fellow CC'ers feel the same thumbs_up.gif
