Oh, big hugs all around!!!! (Darn! No emoticon for that one!)Twopeasinapod
- I can say with all honesty that your work is not that of a newbie in the least. Your lines are wonderful, your flooding is smooth and your ideas are great!
And I don't know what really constitutes a 'newbie' anyway. I would think someone who is really just starting out with question of "What is flooding? How do I pipe RI? What do I use for coloring?" Okay, that is a newbie and we all try to help her along.
I never thought of the term 'newbie' until I joined CC and was given that title. Hey, if someone like Nancy of Nancy's Fancy Cookies was new to CC and joined right now, heavens, she'd be a 'newbie' too.
But it can't be the title you are speaking of as I see that you are now a Junior Member (oh, I was so excited when I got that 'rank'.
No really, I was!).
All that aside, I fully respect newbies. Lots of fresh ideas and so appreciative of help along the way. One of my favorite designs was done by a certain someone when she was a newbie (okay, that would be you, Shiney!) and I looked at that and thought, "She has a great eye and great potential." And she indeed does.
As for you, Twopeasinaod, I am sorry to tell you, but you left 'newbie' a while ago. Just step back and look at the quality of your work from another eye and you will see it also.Shiney
- Fingers crossed you get your groove again soon! I have complete faith in you! You know that! Your creativity has always impressed me. Also, let's see... hmm... why is your signature phrase "Take a picture. Eat the cookie." Hmm.. that would be because your cookies are so cute... people don't want to eat them! You will
get your groove back! You and your new oven just need to comes to terms and you will get back in step in no time.TubbsCookies
- Not good enough to sell? Are you kidding? I just peeked at your profile and see a whole bunch of cookies I flipped over when they were first posted and your quality and ideas are MUCH better than other sites I have seen that sell cookies. I wouldn't even think twice about it... at all! Your cookies are MOST CERTAINLY good enough to sell!
On another note, I think we all look at someone else and think, "Oh, I am not as good as they are" or "Why can't I design like them?" I sure do.
Which leads me to Kneadacookie
, you are one of those people I look at and think "Why can't I design like her?" You just nail, I mean nail
the concept without overdoing it. I seem to always overdo it and wish to anything I could design more like you or bakinccc or... the list goes on. I think it takes a true talent to design like you do - to be able to just get it perfectly without overdoing it. If I could do that, I could get a lot more cookies done and be better off from the financial aspect.
So you not only do incredible cookies, you also have a part time job and... five kids. Hats off to you and I hope that it is sooner than later when you can devote full time to your wonderful talent.
Well, I am now even more behind on designs I am already behind on, but I couldn't let this one go by. Good grief, it is so long I am bolding everyone's names in hopes that they will see it.
I am not sure my opinion carries much weight, but I think you all are wonderful cookie-ers! Have faith in what you do as each of you is really
talented! Hugs from VA!
