navygreen: (Sugar Cookies!)

Cookies. Well, my cookies have gotten some mega-attention in the past week. I made these "Magic Mike" cookies just for fun, and now they have traveled everywhere. Serious biz - EVERYWHERE.

First, the 'Magic Mike' Facebook fanpage posted the cookies. That page has over half a million followers, so the craziness that ensued was unreal. By the time 24 hours had passed, over 13,000 fans had "liked" the post & 2,000 people had "shared" the photo. (Thank goodness it was watermarked!) That same night, the AMC Theatres fanpage (with an audience of over 3.5 million fans!) also posted my cookies, and that resulted in another almost 12,000 "likes" and over 2,000 "shares." Wow!

And THEN, Channing Tatum Unwrapped's fanpage promoted the cookies, too! I was really impressed that someone took the time to turn all of the photos into a collage to promote them - sweet. :-)

Additionally, both 'BakeBakeBake' and Livejournal featured the cookies on their own FB fanpages. Since last Friday, I've had requests up the wazoo, and my email has exploded! And not just requests for more Magic Mike cookies - half of the requests are for other stuff from people who found me through MM. It's insanity!

Lastly, and most exciting, I was contacted by the social media rep for CHANNING TATUM, and she has asked me to make a gift set of cookies for both him & his producing partner, Steven Soderbergh.

!!!

With all of the cookies featured in the MM set, she also has me adding extra name cookies for the celebs that he will be in contact with next week, as well as all of the members of the MM press team. She even wants a special "Team Tatum" cookie, haha! I'm beginning his cookies tomorrow, and I hope to have a picture of Chan with a cookie by next week. ;-)

UNREAL, folks. Simply UNREAL.

Sex sells. And apparently, it also launches you into the stratosphere of cookie fame.

If you had any doubts whatsoever that you could make a living from doing this, I don't think any of them are still lingering.

Awesome!

How are you doing?

Crazy is the best word, Leslie. All the details are still so up-in-the-air, so I haven't updated about it yet. I figure folks will have lots of questions, and I want to have more answers for those questions before I post. I can tell you that we're likely moving by the middle of next month, but that's about the only firm detail! ;-)

I should have read comments first. I've been wondering how things are going but haven't messaged, sorry, and didn't want to say anything on FB obviously.

I am soooo happy for you! This is AWESOME!

I hope that the others things are finding ways to work themselves out. Please know I have been thinking about you.

*flail*

I am SO happy for you!!!

I'm also happy to see that you're moving soon, so you don't have the base red tape to deal with. <3

Thanks!

In a surprise move (to me), the base housing actually REQUESTED cookies about a month ago. I was wary, and didn't answer, thinking it was a trick. After 2 days, they contacted me again, letting me know that while it wasn't okay to bake from the home under the old base housing, the new privatization group (which took over July 1st) didn't have such regulations, and all would be just fine. Then they ordered cookies, LOL!

So I'm completely legal again, and it feels nice to make orders for a bit of $$ once more! It's been since February (and that was an emotional month cookie-wise anyway), so this is a relief!

YAY!!!

As for the rest, forgive me for c&p'ing from above:
