Time to say THANK YOU!

Recently, my very good friend Melissa from The Baked Equation hit 3000 fans on facebook. In a magical twist of cookie fate, I hit 3000 on the same day! We decided the only thing to do under such circumstances was to have a big, fat, cookie-cakey giveaway! We rounded up some great gifts! All items that we love and asked some of our favorite companies to join in and share some more wonderful goodies!

When I first started this sweet baking journey, I found Bridget, of Bake at 350 and I knew that cookies and I were meant to be together forever!
I have always loved to bake and did plenty of that, but Bridget's blog was the inspiration I had been looking for without even knowing it! I made my very first cookies for Christmas 2010 and never stopped!
Melissa, was also inspired by Bridget when she stumbled upon the great tutorials at University of Cookie! And since Bridget's new book just hit the shelves, we couldn't think of a better gift to give our fans! We'll be sending the winners a personalized, autographed copy of Bridget's new book, Decorating Cookies!

But we didn't stop there! I know, you're thinking "you could have. That's enough for me!" Of course, you're right! This book is 160 pages of cookie awesomeness! But sometimes awesome things come with other awesome things!

If you read Bridget's blog, you probably already know who Teresa of Blooming on Bainbridge is. But you may not know that she is my sweet neighbor across the pond! And you may not know that she is opening her very own shop this coming spring Bags by Bloom! She makes incredibly adorable goodies and has offered up 2 medium size cosmetic bags for you!

If you makes cookies, you NEED cookie cutters!! So how about a $25 gift card to one of our very favorite cookie cutter companies,! Beth and Ray and the Coppergifts team make great quality cookie cutters in every designs you could want!
And you'll want to look super dapper when you show off all your cookie skills, so you'll need a new t-shirt from Captain Leisure Tees!

These guys are awesome! I have three of their shirts already and LOVE them!  You may not know that I sent them the idea for the "I bake, what's your superpower" tee! They did a great job of designing it and now everyone can get one! You can always add it to your Christmas wish list if you don't win!

You'll also receive a cute heart sugar cookie necklace from Sweet Cherry Shop!

Pretty much the most adorable cookie swag ever! I received one as a wedding gift from a very sweet cookie friend of mine! With matching earrings! Stevie is as sweet as pie and she's just a quick drive away! Yep! Right here in WA! I love having so many local crafty friends!

 And how about some cute custom labels from The Favor Box! These add such a wonderful touch to packaging! I received mine a few weeks ago, if you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen the awesomeness!

With a multitude of great designs and awesome colors, the only hard part will be choosing just one!

We all know that cookie making/cake decorating is a full time job! Right?! So you won't have time to be polishing the water marks on your coffee table! So a set of these adorable owl coasters from Janet Arizona should keep you trendy and save you some elbow grease!

Owls are just about the cutest things on the planet! And these cute coaster would also be a great stocking stuffer in you're feeling generous and decide to share your winnings!

I may have already mentioned 5 or 20 times that I live in Seattle and if you automatically associate rain with Seattle then you'll understand why I love, love, love this next gift! I received these custom monogramed rain boots from Crystal Faye! She just launched her new website with adorable home decor and very stylish gifts perfect for everyone!

Melissa sent me these gorgeous boots as a wedding gift! I died! And I cried. And then I wore them around the living room and then I vacuumed so the boy wouldn't know that I wore them in the house! And then I realized that they had never been worn, so I didn't need to vacuum to hide my guilt! So I wore them again, around the living room and maybe to bed...

If you live in a area that gets a lot of rain, or you just like the super fashionable look of riding boots meets rain boots, then you will swoon for these!

Finally, if you are working yourself to the bone, then maybe it's time for a little pampering! How about some awesome new hair care products from Dollyrockers Salon! If you have straight hair like me, you'll love their straight collection! You'll win a bottle of Primp & Prime, Straight Laced and Shine Struck! And if you're local to AZ, you can use these coupons for any salon service!

Just print them off and take them with you!

And Melissa and I both shop at World Market and always find something fun! So she picked up a little collection of goodies just for you!

It's a lot to take in! I know.
