Ergonomic Secrets for Cookie Decorating Success!

How do ya like that title? I just read a tutorial on "Writing Blog Post Titles that Grab Attention" at buildinternet.com. So that's my attempt at a title that "creates curiosity".

So what's my "Ergonomic Secret for Cookie Decorating Success"?

Get a taller chair.

It's helped me anyway. I'm short, about 5'3". My kitchen table chairs just aren't quite tall enough. I end up sitting on my feet to get that extra height, then my feet fall asleep… it just doesn't work. So on my last junking trip I found a vintage Cosco stool. I sat on it while decorating these house cookies. It seems a bit more comfortable…

Whatever… just get comfortable when you're decorating. I just wanted to use that oh-so-clever title and tell you about my new chair.

Hi Emily,
I used to have a Cosco stool like that, only in red. It came in quite handy when I needed to get something off the top shelf. Your goodies look delicious.

That’s a clever title, like it!! Love your vintage stool, had one like it in pink at my old work…..I tried to get it but my old boss would not budge ;0(

Hugs, Helene

I love the title!!
I'm only about 5'3" tall too, I have a similar stool in my pantry. Well, don't they say that good things come in small packages, and it's not only cookies :)
