Exciting News and A Giveaway!

You may have noticed that things look a little different around here!

I was lucky enough to win a blog makeover by Eedee Design Studios and Erin did an awesome job redesigning my site!  Hurray!  I loved working with Erin and highly recommend her if you're looking for a design or logo.

Speaking of logos...I also have an exciting announcement.

"The Cookie Cutter" will soon be known as "Jaclyn's Cookies".  I think that it better describes who we are and will hopefully make it easier for you to find us.  We'll still have our web address at www.thecookiecutter.us, but soon you'll notice that you are redirected to a new address: JaclynsCookies.com.

I'm excited to make a change and would love to hear your feedback!

And because I was so thrilled to win a giveaway myself, I decided to spread the love and give you all something too!  You can win some of my favorite cookie decorating tools, just in time for Valentine's Day!

Update:  And the winner is...#12- Molly!  Congratulations and happy decorating! 

  • 24 Wilton disposable piping bags
  • My absolute favorite PME #1 and #1.5 tips, a Wilton #2 tip, and 4 couplers
  • A "boo boo stick", because everyone makes mistakes, you just need to know how to fix them!

  • 2 mini squeeze bottles, my favorite for for flood icing
  • Americolor food coloring gels in sky blue, red red, lemon yellow, and leaf green
  • Silpat non-stick baking mat, awesome for baking cookies on (I roll my dough out between them too!)
And of course you need some fun Valentine's Day supplies!
  • Heart and double heart cookie cutters
  • White sugar pearls and red lips sprinkles
  • 2 love birds dish towels
OK, here are the ground rules:
You have 3 chances to win.
  1. Leave a comment here and tell me what you're favorite Valentine's day treat is
  2. Like me on Facebook.  Then come back here and leave a comment telling me that you like me
