A Community Cookie Collection to Celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day

Did you know there’s a National Sugar Cookie Day?! Well, yeah, there is and it’s on Monday, July 9th.

Let’s celebrate by sharing what we’ve been working on in the last couple of weeks! I’ve started this (my third) Community Cookie Collection with a link-up of the stenciled cookies I’ve been doing. They’ll star in a series of instructional cookie decorating videos that I’m shooting later this month, and which will first release in ebook format in the fall of this year. I’ve got about 15 different cookie “sets” in the works, each corresponding to one of the decorating techniques in my book Ultimate Cookies. I hope to be distributing the videos on a standalone basis too, though I have yet to work out all of those details. Stay tuned . . .

In the meantime, let’s link up! But, before you do, please read these posting instructions to learn more about why these collections exist and how they operate, and remember to upload your own work.

This month’s theme is simple: whatever decorated cookie that’s kept you busy - and most proud.

Trouble with any technical aspects of this collection? Direct those questions to Linky Tools; otherwise, shoot me an email and I’ll do my best to help out.

Live sweetly, as I say,

Julia M. Usher
