Can you use someone else's cookie designs to inspire your own work? Can you make an exact copy? Do you credit? EVERY SINGLE TIME or just the first time? -- If you ask these questions to 100 decorators...you might get 100 different answers. I cannot speak for everyone, but I can speak for myself.


** Can I use your cookie tutorials and designs to make my own cookies?
YES. PLEASE use all my tutorials and designs to make your own cookies!!!


** What if I plan to sell the cookies...can I still use your designs?
YES. Absolutely. Make the cookies for practice. Make them for your friends. Sell them to your customers or give them to your mailman. I LOVE sharing my ideas with you and knowing that it has helped you create something you are proud of!


** Should I tag you or credit you for the designs when I post/share my awesome creations?
I know this is a hotly contested question. Personally... it doesn't bother me if you don't tag/link/credit me when you share a cookie you've made using one of my tutorials. Other people that make tutorials may feel differently. I understand that many of you have cookie decorating businesses and you are posting for your own customers. If you would like to credit me -- THANK YOU! If you don't -- I'm so glad you found the tutorial useful!


** Can I put your tutorials on my own blog, page, or YouTube channel?
Please do not copy and paste my tutorials. Please do not recreate my tutorials. Please don't make video tutorials of my picture tutorials.


** Can I use your tutorials in my cookie decorating classes?
I love that you want to share your love of cookie decorating with others. Please be genuine and share your own creativity and designs in the classes you teach.


** How can I use your cookie pictures?
You are welcome to pin my photos to Pinterest or other similar site. If you choose to share my photos to social media, please do so directly from my blog or from MY social media posts. Do not download and then re-upload them as if they were your own pictures. Do not use my cookie pictures to sell your own cookies. It's not fair to me or your customers.


** I made a change or two (or none) to your recipe. Can I post it on my own website/print in a booklet?
I'm so glad that you enjoy my recipe! I love sharing my recipes. I would ask, however, that you do not copy or publish it online, in print, or any other form. Thank you for understanding!
