How to Decorate Cookies - Owl and Autum Decorated Cookies

If you haven’t heard, I am on the search for new contributors here on Living Locurto.

Thanks to those of you who have already applied for the job! Because of some unexpected life circumstances and my busy work schedule, I have not been able to go through each email as I had planned. So hiring people had to be put on hold. Therefore, the search goes on! I will reply back to everyone who has applied as soon as I am able. Probably well after this event.

Find details about how to apply in the lower right-hand sidebar.

I am excited to announce a new member to the team!
