Potpourri Post

If you're a cookier, you know who Callye of Sugarbelle is.  If you don't, then let me give you a little summary: she is an incredible cookier, teacher, and friend.  I also like to call her "MOTHER OF ALL COOKIERS".  But she is not just a mother of cookiers; she recently added to her beautiful crew when little Liv joined her sweet family.  I was asked to blogsit while Callye is on maternity leave and you can read my guest blog post HERE!

Okay, okay... so I know what you're thinking:  "You post on other people's blogs, but ignore your own?"  and to that I answer, "Don't get sassy with me!  I am a busy... I have been...  okay, yeah.  I'm guilty!"  

Honestly, I love to blog.  There is no shortage of things to write about or pictures to share.  It all comes down to time... and by time I should say making time... and it's about time I made time.

And... while we are talking about time, let's time travel back to March 20th - 22nd, 2014.  I know it's hard to think back that far, but picture it with me: Salt Lake City, hundreds of amazingly talented cookiers, classes by brilliant teachers, vendors selling the most irresistible cookie gadgets!  Was it all a dream?  No friends, it was CookieCon!  

All of the wonderful teachers who helped get the party started with my keynote at the conference.

If you don't believe me, you can watch these awesome interviews from local SLC news stations about CookieCon, because if it's on tv, that means it's true, right?

It was truly magical and I wanted to make sure I say thank you to everyone who went, who taught, who hugged me, who cookie'd with me, some even brought me cookies or cutters... sigh!  Cookiers are the best and it was an overwhelmingly awesome event.

Another thing that happened at CookieCon was a breakout session led by Mr. John where he talked about copyright laws and how they affect cookiers.  It was a great conversation and I felt we could have discussed it for hours more.  I have sweet talked Mr. John into making a vlog for me, basically covering the things he talked about during that breakout for those of you who weren't there or would like a recap of what was covered.  If you have questions you would like to have answered about copyright, please email them to me at:  contact@artymcgoo.com with the subject: copyright.
