Hi!  I’m Emmy, Owner and Cookie Artist at The Cookie Nook.  People often ask how I ended up on this journey of cookie decorating.  I have always been the crafter of my friends and family.  I once made a large pair of underwear for 3 of us to fit in, so we could be Fruit of The Loom for Halloween.  So it was no surprise that I majored in Studio Art at college.  But then I became a 4th-grade teacher for 7 years.  In those years, I got married, had three kids (in 4 years, yikes!) and decided not to return to teaching.  This gave me time to bake and go back to my love of crafting.  On my 37th birthday, my 6-year-old flipped through Ct’s 40 under 40 magazine and acknowledged I only had a couple years to make the list.  He suggested golfing or baking to be my avenue for success.  Since I only golfed one time, I figured baking was a better bet.   After several friends said they would pay for my cookies, I thought, let's give this a shot!  One night, I stayed up all night making Valentines cookies and posted them for sale online and the adventure began!
