Holiday



I did this for an apron for my sister for Christmas because she IS the Cookie Queen. I swear her cookies are little works of art...makes it real hard to scarf down a box of them but I do my best!

Later...
These are some of the cookies. My food styling leaves A LOT to be desired!

Holy cats those are gorgeous! I'd feel just the tiniest bit guilty munching them... I'm sure I'd get over it though! Hope you're having a great holiday!

YUUUMMM! I'll take some! Good work on holiday, and tell your sister to stop showing us artists up with such perfect cookies, both images are giving me cookie cravings.
Happy holidays

I agree! Those are quite incredible cookies. Martha would be most proud of your sister! Love your 50's-style illo that goes with it. Very befitting!

And thanks for the comment you left on my blog. I had a hardy laugh reading those names you mentioned! Hee!

Hey Jules, I'd say that made an excellent apron. How did your sister like anyway?

Holly said...

Those cookies look like little yummy illustrations on a plate. Love the retro feel of your illo as well. Great stuff. Have a happy and creative new year. Cheers!

jules - I used a HP Digital. on a timer no flash. long exposure.

If I was using my canon It would have required a wide open f-stop and about 30 second open shutter. Of course timed so as not to shake the camera. I would have been using 25 or 100 speed film for film quality, maybe a 180 B/W P Film if I wanted to use a different camera with a larger negitive.

I love your elves in your imagine.
You got talent girl.

Honour/Honor if I could only spell(wink)

Cheers,

i really like your illustration, and the fifties feel you did. also, you are right about your sisters cookies. they are little works of art. i like them all, but my favorite is the snowflake with the tiny button candies. there is a contest in the us every year for gingerbread houses. i don't know where or when but i saw it on food network. you both might want to check it out. you might make a dynamic duo coming up with an amazing creation
