No...these aren't the cookies that you're thinking of. These are what Jimmy has named the last two batches of cookies, that I've baked because, they came out of the oven slightly, shall we say...over-browned? I wouldn't go as far as to call them burned because Jimmy ate them all, almost single handedly. *LOL* Although he says he had help...huh. The cookies remained in the oven just a little too long because I've been busy on the computer, while trying to get my Christmas baking done and everything else relating to Christmas. My kids have another name for these cookies...they call them the "choking cookies" yeah they do. If you inhale while eating them , the powdered sugar coating gets sucked down into your lungs. Jimmy likes them without the sugar coating, so I don't put it on all the cookies. They're diet cookies that way and you can eat as many as you like. heheheBrian has given me a little job to do...He's made me his official photographer, ha ha. Besides getting ready for Christmas, I have been taking pictures of his bowls on roof tops and anywhere I can find a place to set them down. *LOL* I even layed down on the ground for a few shots that didn't work out so well. And of course, if you read my last post you saw that I have a cat following...and those of you that have cats know how curious they are about anything that you're doing outside.
Besides taking pictures and cataloging each bowl, I also get to woodburn his name on the back of each bowl along with the date, an assigned bowl number and the type of wood the bowl is made from. As you can see, I haven't shown you any pictures of my woodburning talents...because they're awful!!! But I'm improving with each bowl. hahaha. Brian hasn't seen the woodburning yet either...so I might be losing that job. Well for that matter, he hasn't seen these pictures either. *LOL*
So far I've only had 10 bowls to work with but he called me last night and said he was bringing me over another batch of bowls he's finished. I can't wait to see them, but I may have to wait until after Christmas to work with them...there's just too much that I need to do right now to get ready for Christmas. I also will not be on the computer very much until Christmas is over, so please forgive me if I don't visit as often during this holiday season, but I'll be back when I can to catch up on reading your blogs.
So how do you think I'm doing with these pictures? Do any of you have any suggestions on how I can improve, beside telling me to go hire a real professional photographer? I can use all the help I can get. Oh...and before I forget, my sweet brother Tomas is putting together a webpage called, Family Crafts and you can find it if you Click Here. It's just in the making right now and will have more later, as more family members submit their crafts.
I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a very peaceful and joyous New Year.
