I so enjoyed looking at your creations. You will be missed. Please drop in once in a while and say hello. And keep coming up with those great designs of yours.

We'll be sorry to see you go especially by those of us who have greatly benefited by having you around. I hope your situation turns around soon and we can once again share in your lovely creations and wisdom.

Good luck with the new job.

I just saw this post and thought of you. Could this be an option for you?

My first thought was to sigh. You not being here will be a void. I also think you not doing cookies would not be a good idea, but I am not sure that is what you were thinking. I have a change coming up in my life as well and will have to adapt accordingly. My thought is that if you can't get on CC to load, still create your wonderful cookies and photograph them as you usually do. You can even use Word to keep a file of the write-ups you would usually post for each. Then, when the time is right and you can get back on, you will have all sorts to upload. icon_biggrin.gif I know that is not ideal, but I guess I am trying to give you something to look forward to, which is what I am trying to do with my situation.

In the interim, I will miss your cookies. I always love to see what you do! Best of luck in the new job!

I put in a question to see if the elimination of the ads will allow me to access CC at home. I'm so-o-o excited by the possibility of this working!Thank you for the link!!!!

Oh, this just doesn't seem right - CC without GeminiRJ? I am literally at a loss for the right words right now. It seems sad and wrong for our little cookie community to lose someone like you. I really hope something works out... don't leave!
In the meantime, good luck at your new job and putting up with Fred Flintstone!

Gemini,
Have you heard anything on the ad-free option yet? I hope it works for you!

I have not been a member long enough to get to know you, however after admiring pictures of your cookies I think I can safely say you are definately going to be missed! This may not help you feel better about your situation but I have always believed things happen for a reason. You may not be able to see what that reason is but eventually it will make sense. I do have one cookie question for you.... do you use MMF or royal frosting to frost your cookies? Thanks

I use this recipe, which is a glace:

3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
3 tablespoons skim milk (or other type milk, or water)
3 tablespoons corn syrup
15 drops brite white food color, optional (I use Americolor brand)

In a medium size bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, milk and corn syrup until fully combined (I just use a spoon to do the mixing). Add the brite white and mix well. You will want the icing to be the consistency of white school glue, or maybe a bit thicker. To thicken the icing, add more powdered sugar in small amounts. To thin, add more corn syrup in small amounts. Divide and color. The icing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks. The decorated cookies do not need to be refrigerated, and if you omit the brite white, it is definitely not recommended.

The brite white seems to help prevent the icing from getting cloudy and spotting, especially if it gets cold. Also, the high sugar content keeps the icing from spoiling, so that's why you can use the milk and not have to worry about refrigeration.

I know we don't 'know' each other, but I just wanted to say that I've also enjoyed looking at your amazing cookies.

I do wish you every success..... and I hope that perhaps you won't have to leave CC with the new option of not having the ads.

Very best wishes

I've read from others who said that they can finally use CC because of the ad-free subscription. If I were you, I would definitely try it! Besides, you have to pay month to month, so you could try it out for only $4.95 and then cancel (or just not purchase) the next month if is doesn't work out for you...but I think it will! Good luck, and looking forward to seeing more of your work!
