Hello... just wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking on the site for a few days, reading and looking at your very cute cookie pictures. I was nervous about joining because you all seem to have such a great community and I'm shy even on forums! But all this cookie talk-- I can't help myself!! icon_biggrin.gif

My name is Karen, and I just launched my new cookie site that some of you have been talking about (karenscookies.net). I'm glad you found me, and I'm glad I found you. I hope you have room for one more in your forum! I love talking cookies.

Welcome to CC...it's a great place! I for one love your website. The White Chocolate Sugar Cookies are my new "go to" cookies. They are so yummy and easy to work with. And I love the cookie decorating kits...what a great idea! I'm sure that all of us "cookie decorators" can learn a ton from you. Welcome!

I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.... I might have to refer you to my husband on some of them, since he's the web guy. I just do what he tells me to do!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks again for everyone welcoming me to the board! It is definitely already addicting, and I've already learned a lot!
