WeCookiers Express, #0024 Are you a shero?
April 25, 2023
Being a shero isn't easy.
In 1836 the term was coined ‘shero’.
What does it mean?
Oxford Languages defines it as a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities…’
I included it in this periodical because, on top of our regular orders, Mother’s Day and graduations also bombard us. Of course, we still have all the other hats to wear in our daily life. Therefore, you should be deemed a SHERO!

Your Questions, My AnswerQ: How do you disassemble an airbrush for cleaning? What solution do you use for cleaning an airbrush after each time?
A: I have given a link to my airbrushing page on how to clean the airbrush. This walks you through the entire process, step by step, and reassembling it. Definitely bookmark that link. It’s invaluable!
I find no need at all in buying expensive cleaning solutions. I’ve used plain white vinegar since I got my airbrush system years ago. It’s up to you, but I find it a total waste of money to buy solutions that do not work nearly as well as white vinegar.
Here's the link to cleaning and disassembling: airbrushing-cookies.html

Graduation Cookie Inspo
Business Sense: marketing yourself1.Do you have an acquaintance in the restaurant business? Ask them if you can sell a display of your heat-sealed cookies for a commission. Make sure all your contact info and logo are on each bag.
2.Put together a fun cookie decorating contest, you being the judge (since you’re the professional!)
3. Some cookiers are a good fit for this idea, some not. Reach out to an online specialty store, like a top-of-the-line men’s store. Ask them to include your cookies on their site for sale, giving them a commission of course.
I have a friend of a friend who did this and she her cut is actually 3 times more than she gets locally. The reason is specialty places like that charge an outrageous amount on their items, therefore your cookies command a high price as well (as long as your cookies show skill). Worth a try!
Quick Business Tips1.Want to be more productive? Even when you are running circles around yourself, it is advantageous to take just a few moments to decompress. It will energize and enable you to get more work done in the long run.
2.Are you constantly and consistently thinking of ways to make your work easier and faster? While I’m busy with all aspects of cookie-ing, I’m always devising shortcuts and thinking of organizations. It really can save you time.
3.Do you have a graduation to attend this year? Make sure to take business cards with you. You will probably engage in conversations that can lead to the subject of what you do.
