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!
