Still a newbie? - Page 2

post #16 of 28
OOOh can I sit with you guys at the cool table?!? please please please?!?

i love coming on and seeing everyone else's work! tracy it was you who inspired me to take a second look at my wood painting books. I could have sworn I saw your wicked witch in a book. I love your whimsy!!

i haven't seen nancy on in a long time. her website doesn't even have anything new. she is really truely the cookie queen. i was so flattered to get a personal message from her telling me my cookies were worth way more than what i was charging. what a compliment. now if i can only convince my customers......

Ok... I'll just admit it... I'm most definitely a newbie! I'm ok with that actually. It's been so long since I did cakes, and now suddenly I'm doing cookies too.

I am just in awe of all of you ladies!!

Oh, yes, Kneadacookie pull up a chair! We all sit at the cool table! icon_biggrin.gif Awww... I am thrilled I inspired you in any way whatsoever as when I first came to CC, I saw your website and thought, "Wow! She makes cookies and.. sells them. How cool is that!", wishing that someday I could do that!" Well, I do cookies now, but my dear, you do much better than I do per hour! Oh, I didnt see the witch in a book. The basic inspiration for that witch came from a painted wood cutout from Michaels. I see ideas all around, tweak them or create my own (guess that minor in Graphic Design was good for something!). Everything seems to be a cookie to me! My son has the flu and I was brainstorming on cookies for him, but realized the poor kid is too sick to even eat them! Yep, cookies on the brain!

Nancy is truly the Cookie Queen princess.gif (coudn't resist!) and she is in a league all her own! I actually e-mailed back and forth with her a while ago as I found out that she lived nearby and I hoped to go into the bakery where her cookies were and maybe (dare I say) meet her (a hush falls over the crowd). Alas, she was in the midst of a move, but she was just the nicest, most wonderful person. I see such an incredible future for her!

Oh, Shiney Your chair is already there! You know me too well - icon_lol.gif - I am like a moth to the flame with CC! Step away from the computer! as it sucks me in to see if there are new pics to ooh and aaww over, if anyone has a question I might be able to help with, and to see what there is new to learn. I learned about imprinting letters on fondant today! Perhaps I will try that someday! Pics will be coming. Just havent had time to load them and am busily finalizing the artwork for the Valentines cookies. Wish to anything I could whip them out and stop being so Type A, but at least I am getting closer! I learned a big lesson with the Christmas cookies as $1/hour just isnt so ideal!

v-starpilot - you may be new, but you are off to a great start! I loved your Valentine's day cookies! Great, smooth icing, nice job on the piping , wondeful whimsy... and you do cakes too??? I don't even go there! icon_lol.gif

Okay, back to work! Maybe I need to cut power to the computer! Step away, step away...

I'm with you, twopeasinapod, I was just wondering a couple of days ago, how long I have to sit on the newbie bench. I sometimes lie in bed awake because my brain is thinking up a new cake design even when there is no occasion to make a cake for. (I know, I know. Never end a sentence with a preposition) How many cakes does it take to graduate to junior member?

'Till then, I'll be dreaming up cakes on the newbie bench! icon_biggrin.gif

twopeas and artsy, your work is awesome!
really you aren't newbies anymore!

I do know how you feel though, I get grumpy too, the cookie queens beat me to a pulp too icon_rolleyes.gif

try to remember though that most pleople haven't seen CC or Nancy's Fancy or Tracy or Kneadacookie for that matter.
your work is great and you need to keep coming back to be inspired and challenged, but don't get down! (easy to say, hard to do, I know)

happy baking!!!

Okay artsy - I just saw your profile and am absolutely blown away! icon_eek.gif Newbie, my foot! Sweetie, I would never do a cookie throwdown with you! icon_lol.gif Those are absolutely incredible cookies, not to mention the cakes!

BTW, the only reason I am not labelled a 'Newbie' anymore is because I yak so much on the forums! icon_lol.gif Trust me, the CC label has nothing to do with the level of talent as is evidenced by what we see here. You, a "Newbie"? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Artsy, us yakers have a lot to learn from you! Actually, I wouldn't even dare to try what you do! It truly is exquisite!

Jen - You are sweet, but you know that you are my cookie idol and have been from the start! And you do cakes too! Geesh! icon_smile.gif If anyone else is seeing this, did you see her latest cake? Seriously cool! icon_cool.gif If I did a cake, it would immediately go into the new "Cake Disasters" gallery! icon_lol.gif

Okay, ladies, I am feeling really guilty. My youngest son is home sick from school today and I am home with him. I have just given him medicine for the fever that I know will make him sleep. All I can think is, "Yeah! I have about 2 full hours to work on cookies!" Now that is pretty sad! I know it is an addiction! icon_smile.gificon_wink.gif

I know, we are SAD! I'm in the shower thinking....Hum, how am I feeling, a little headache? Aw, that's not enough. ...but when you got stacks of naked cookies, It's hard not to want to provide pretty clothing for them babies.

I laid down with my sick son long enough to get him asleep and as we were laying there he said, "Mom, if you work on cookies while I'm asleep, would you make a special one for me!" He knows me all too well to know that I am going to hop up as soon as he is asleep! He is 10 years old but you know when they are sick they still want mom. I think now I'll probably have to make a new batch of cookies for a get well theme. Yeah, more cookies!!! icon_lol.gif

Twopeas - There you go! Get well cookies! My son has the flu and I thought about doing get well cookies, but now I am not feeling so hot and like Shiney, I have a ton of naked V-day cookies to attack lest I go downhill too. Have fun! icon_biggrin.gif

I think all of your cookies are great!

I know I certainly still feel like a newbie. I would love to have more time to spend decorating cookies, and the time to come up with some design ideas. I look to all of you for great designs. icon_lol.gif ,so thank goodness you're here!
