Much reviewing... much deliberation... much, much prayer, and upon the final cut, which didn't take place until this very morning, a little sadness... That's what it took to go from 46 applications to 4 design team members...
Besides Dina Kowal, the team leader, who makes five, the smART Cookies are:
Donna Duquette - Connecticut
Heidi Kingery - Ohio
Deborah March - Nova Scotia, Canada
Susan Liles - Texas
Although I'll be introducing these talented stampers as individuals in a little bit, right now all I want to say to them is, "CONGRATULATIONS!" My sweet tooth is very happy to have you in the cookie jar!
