Thanks for the heads up!


Is anyone having trouble registering on the site in order to upload photos? I've tried five times now and it keeps returning me to the same registration page without implying there are any errors and without getting to the next step!

Hey knead,
Yeah, you know I had to give this contest a shot. There are a LOT of great entries and some talented people we don't even know!
Thanks for your very sweet comments there. I left some for you too!

You can enter as many times as you want, but they're only going to count the first two entries as official. The amount of entries has really exploded this week!

Hi everyone. I also have to toot my own horn. My cookies were also shown on Martha. They were the baby shoes. I had never posted the picture before. It is so much fun to be in such great company. I have admired all your cookies for a long time. Good luck!

My jaw dropped when I saw NancysFancy's cookies! To call them beautiful would be an understatement. And kneadacookie posted one of my all time favorites of hers...hearts of fire. Good luck to all!

oh I am getting so frustrated! I can't login! I have tried at least two dozen times. Whenever I try to upload photos, it asks me to register first. So when I go to the register page and fill in all of the information, I click "submit" and it just takes me right back to the register page as if I need to fill it in all over again or I get an error page. I can't log on and upload my cookie pictures!!!

Did anyone else have trouble? I thought it might be my computer (it's a Mac) so I tried my hubby's and it still didn't work. I thought maybe I had logged in once upon a time and registered and just didn't remember so I used my husband's email address instead of mine and still, no go. I can't figure out why!!!

Thank you, GeminiRJ. You're too kind! I think Martha will LOVE your 3-D cookies. And I also think that your 3-D kits will sell like hotcakes. Such a great idea!

Hi ckkerber,
I read your post to my husband (the only computer savvy person in this house) He said to be sure and check if your photos have been posted. (The most recent entries will be on pages 1 or 2) When he submitted my 2 photos the site does NOT tell you that they have been uploaded. (Btw---he thinks this entry and viewing method could be vastly improved.)

Thanks, Nancy, but I don't even get to the point where I can upload photos! When I click on the "upload photos" button, it takes me to a sign in / register page. So then I try to register and it never accepts my registry! I fill in the whole form, choose a user name and password and everything, and when I click "submit" the page just reloads and I get the registration page again to fill out all over again! I can never get past that in order to upload any photos!

GRRRR~~~!!!!! Thanks for trying to help, though! I really appreciate it! I guess I'm just not meant to enter the contest!

ckkerber, when you register you have to go into your email and open up the email that marthastweart.com sends you. You have to hit the link and confirm that you authorize the registration. Did you do that? That's the only think I can think of.

I'm not even getting far enough to get an email. The registration is just not going through for some reason! And I've tried it on two computers. It makes no sense!!!

Thanks for trying, though!

I entered 2 of my fish cookies too (the yellow/white butterfly fish and the clown fish).

It is such fun to look through the entries and recognize so many great ones from CCers!!

Woo hoo! It finally worked! I tried so many times both on my laptop and our office computer (one's a MAC one's a PC) and I FINALLY tried on my hubby's laptop and for some reason, it worked. Geez, that was a real pain! But I uploaded two cookies - a garden party cookie and a castle one.

Good luck everyone!

Does anybody know if the winners will be notified before the show airs on Tuesday the 13th? I'd love to get advanced notice if any of you guys win.

I was wondering if they will notify you of winning before the show airs too. I entered 2 cookies. Didn't know how to post the link but here are my cookies.

Fairytale, I recognized the frog...what a great cookie! I will be curious to see what gets chosen, especially with all the uproar over their selections for the cupcake contest. I didn't see that particular contest, so I can't comment on the outcome. I liked all the winners...I just didn't see their competition.

Thanks. Yes, I was curious about the outcome of that competition too. I had a cupcake entered, and there were a lot of really great cupcakes. I honestly didn't understand how they chose most of the winners. I thought Nancy should have been #1. Guess we'll have to wait until Tuesday to see the results for the cookies.

Even if I don't make it as one of the winners, my bear cookie has 1100 hits on it so that's really satisfying.
