Celebration GIVEAWAY: 4th of July Cookies FOR YOU!

Last night I logged into my One Preppy Cookie Facebook account to find that I had crossed the 1,000 "Like" threshold. That blew my mind. I know it may not seem like much to many, but to think that over 1,000 people care enough to see my work meant a lot to me. One Preppy Cookie was started as a creative outlet and has grown into more than I could have imagined. It has introduced me to new friends and re-connected me with many people who I may have otherwise not crossed paths with regularly. It has been fun, challenging, gratifying and then some. It has taught me many lessons on running a small business and empowered me to know that anything is possible.

Many of you know that OPC is not my full-time career. It is a small family-run business that I tend to nearly every night and weekend. I make the cookies, my mom is the shipping packager and my husband is the Post Office delivery man. The three of us encompass the entire "operation." That is, aside from you all.

I want to wholeheartedly thank those of you who have followed me along on this journey and supported One Preppy Cookie. As a small token of my ongoing appreciation, I am giving away a baker's dozen of assorted 4th of July cookies.*




This is certainly not a plea for more orders (I will not be taking those for the foreseeable future as it is) but rather a HUGE THANK YOU for believing in One Preppy Cookie.

GOOD LUCK!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

  2. Amy, what you are doing here is amazing! I too own my own business and I understand the passion and hard work that goes into this everyday! Congratulations on 1,000 likes that is no easy feat either. It is great to see a fellow OHS '98 alum doing so well. While some gorgeous 4th of July cookies would be great I would just like a chance to get on your list :) . I have some events coming up Aug 9, 24 and 31st please let me know if you have anything open up. Thank you and congratulations!

  19. While these are obviously aesthetically gorgeous cookies, more beautiful than I've seen anywhere, what makes them so special is one ingredient that cannot be bought or even seen: the love that goes into each one. Such talent, Amy!!! My Instagram isn't loading currently, so I'm gonna have to wait to stack the decks on this.

    xo!
