Tracy, I second what everyone else has said about your eloquent words.....Your cookies are fabulous....I have yet to try cookies...they look so complicated.....like your avatar cookie......did you use a stencil for the letters?

Anyway, I am so grateful to all the members who selflessly share their tips and tricks with the rest of us. We're a big happy family and I for one love that!!!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!

I agree.

I have learned so much here, and am always learning something new.

I also got that website from someone on here. I'm not very computer savy either.

Tracy, what can I say, you rock! I love all your cookie designs! They are, works of art!!! Did you take any classes or are you self taught.

I "LOVE" your avatar!

Ladij - Thanks! Nope, no stencil, but the design was inspired by a stencil Cookiemookie used on one of her cookies. I just changed it around a bit to come up with my version.

Cookiemookie - Self taught, like all of my buddies here! icon_biggrin.gif I just play around and experiment a lot. Trying to find my little niche, as it were. I will say, I love your cookies! I still smile when I think of your baby faces. Just the cutest I have ever seen! icon_biggrin.gif You have also inspired me to give stencils a whirl as you do such an amazing job with them!

Tracy, your cookies are gorgeous. Will you share with us what cookie recipe you use? Thanks. I am looking for a sturdy cookie for decorating that doesn't taste like cardboard. Oh and thanks for the avatar info. If I have time this week I may try to shrink some pictures to post for an avatar and to fill up my cake gallery.

Awww - Tracy, I always wondered why your beautiful creations wasnt on your Avatar! Well, good for you now! And its AWESOME!

Yes Tracy - its ppl like YOURSELF who make me come back day after day - I could have just kept stalking the forums and galleries, but seeing the helpfulness and encouraging words ya'll had for each other made me want to be a part - to bring just another, however small piece, I can contribute - to add to this community .. So I thank you and the so many others who've always had some encouraging or helpful advice to share with each other .. I feel blessed to be a part!

NOW - if "I" could just figure out HOW to resize my uploaded photos, then "I" will have joined you in the computer savvy-ness you have achieved!! icon_rolleyes.gif

Thats where I've been trying to do it .. it did resize them (to 1500x1500) I "think" but when I try to upload it here, it tells me the pic is wrong size - either too big or too small .. and if you look at my pics you'll see - this is the size it turns out ... icon_cry.gif So I havent even tried to upload ALL my V Day ones I have - their too small to even see! Ive been trying since Dec. to resize the ones in my pics here ... I will NOT give up!! thumbs_up.gif

But I do Thank you Debster .. I do apprieciate you trying to help out this poor chicky!

Hmmmmmm Gaye, I go there and click the 600 pixel thing then resize then do you save the new size and try to upload that? You have to save the new size. Then when you uplaod to CC click the one that's been resized. HTH

That's all I do and it works. icon_lol.gif

shrinkpictures.com has a special site just for making avatars. (I think it's www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar).

Tracy, I was thrilled to see your gorgeous avatar!
