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

THANK YOU!
11/5  THE WINNER IS:
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!

  4. 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!

  96. Just "liked" you on Facebook. I've really enjoyed looking through all your posts.

Thanks for sharing your art with all of us!
