1000 Facebook Friends Giveaway

My facebook page reached 1000 “likes” a couple of weeks ago and it is so amazing to get that kind of support and encouragement!  I am always so touched by the kind words and comments that I get from people.  I have been welcomed to the cookie community by so many friends, foodies, and fellow cookie artists.  THANK YOU!

Now, I am a firm believer that food speaks louder than words… so I thought I would finally get my cookie-making butt in gear and do a cookie giveaway.  I will randomly pick the winner and make them a dozen of the most outrageously awesome cookies.  I don’t know what they will be… but they’re gonna be rad!

All you have to do is like Arty McGoo on facebook (if you’re super awesome you already have :D) and then leave me a comment here on this post.  I love comments on facebook and if you feel so inclined, I always appreciate it; but THIS is where I will be randomly picking from, so make sure your comment for the giveaway is here!  Your comment can be anything, you can suggest an awesome cookie idea or you can philosophize on the social ramifications of dodgeball, just make sure it’s awesome and that you comment only ONCE.  So I’m gonna break it down:

1.  “Like” Arty McGoo on Facebook.
2.  Leave ONE awesome comment below.
3.  Wait impatiently for me to announce the winner on Saturday, November 5th.
4.  Feel the love and thanks radiating from Arty McGoo

Using random.org the number picked was #117 which was from Sharon:

“Arty the comment does not have to be awesome you are, I am in awe of your work, and to top it all the cookes are in my favourite color yay xxx”
Sharon xoxox

Congratulations Sharon!  I will be emailing you shortly to get all your details.  Thank you everybody who participated.  I wish I could send you all cookies!

    Duuuuuuh, sadly and possibly it's only for US residents, isn't it?

    Anyway, I wanted to stop by to say I just CAN'T stop thinking and dreaming about your cookie decorating way… Painting the cookies! Omg, how did I never think about it!? Now I just can imagine cute brush-painted cookies everytime I see an illustration or anything!

  2. Shanners

    Awesome!! I love your cookies and would love to win a dozen! That would be amazing!

    I love your cookies, but I also love your photography. ANd you know what would be cool? Since you are OH SOOO ARTISTIC? Vintage cool chick (rosie the riveter or june cleaver) ones! Yeah…way cool. A gal with a strand of pearls in one hand and a power tool in the other. 😉

    I love your cookies and your style! I like you on Facebook and your tutorial was great. It answered all of my questions.

  11. Kayla J.

    Well, I'm halfway super awesome because I'd already liked you from my cookie page a long time ago, but not from my personal page – but now I like you from both! Your cookies are so cool!

    Not a fan of dodgeball, though…

  12. Andrea

  13. lori

    I love all of your awesome cookies, but my faves are the the painted and piped ones and the interactive "Will you go to Prom with me" set is too adorable for words. You're thinking outside of the coolie box, keep up the great work!

  14. Yvonne Jacobs

    I love your work and site, you are such an inspiration and make me feel like I can do anything!

  15. Stephanie

    Your cookies are amazing! I have been following you on Facebook ever since I saw the animal print cookies you shared for Cristin's Cookies challenge. My 5 year old daughter is looking over my shoulder right now, and while I am on your site, I am going to show her your Pinkalicious cookies. Listen for the sound of her head exploding in a few seconds….

  16. Wow! Yummy! I'd love to have some of your fantastic and delicious cookies! I hope you will celebrate soon your 5000 fans!

    I'm with the rest of the gang…I love, love, love your cookies, and am already a FB liker (although I need to make sure I have both personal and LaurasCookies likes – doing that now.) … I loved your recent video doing the rainbow colors and leopard (?) print. I loved watching your technique and I loved just watching the video. Besides that, I was awed by your sidewalk chalk picture and just doing up a little quick makeup for your friend for Halloween – yup, your art & creativity imbues everything!

    speaking of dodgeball, they had my daughters KINDERGARTEN class play it at their Halloween play day. Seriously not a good idea.
    I bet you would make a mean dodgeball cookie though!

  63. Katie J.

    Just "liked" you on Facebook. I've really enjoyed looking through all your posts. While I consider myself fairly decent at your typical piping/flooding cookie decorating, I will NEVER be able to replicate the things you do with food coloring and brushes…sheer genius! Thanks for sharing your art with all of us!

  64. Teresa

    I found you a little while ago and have totally been inspired by you. I think its amazing that you haven't even "started" your business and you are already so successful! Congrats on 1000 fans! I don't think you need any cookies ideas from us, you already have great ones. 🙂

    Hello Ms Lizzy Arty McGoo..Love your site – thanks to sweetsugarbelle I found you! Between the two of your blogs, how will I ever get anything done? 🙂

  68. Heather MacLeod

    I've "liked" you, been a fan of your artwork ever since your painted sunshine cookies caught my eye (which was pretty much immediately!), and would LOVE to win some of your cookies….but then the big decision….do I eat or frame them?! Thanks so much for so openly sharing your art as well as technique. :o)

  69. SweetSugarBelle

    Dodgeball? I HATE dodgeball! {In my best smurf voice} we had a big mean kid in our grade and he tortured me daily {among other kids} Still traumatized!

  70. Amanda Bridges

    1. I "like" you on FB, but LOVE your cookies! 2. My first sighting of your art was your Star Wars cookies & immediately posted that link to my FB page for others to enjoy. Then looked around your site and was AMAZED at your artistic abilities. My favorite cookie, though, is of the beautiful little girl w/ the nest & bird on her head–I am in awe! Thanks for sharing; you inspire me to try harder.

    "HOLY COW"… "She has a talent and is very gifted"… "I want her to paint my cast" (which we know you have done before – we saw your work on Mrs. Ham)… These were comments from 2 of my 4 kiddos that would LOVE to gobble up some of your beautiful yummy cookies.

    Pick me, pick me, pick me!!! 😉
