Things are Cookin’

I’m so excited. Things are cooking around my campfire these days!



This week I ordered my custom made Christmas cards that I created using a beautiful set of templates. But the real excitement is what I ordered today! Trouble is, I can’t share with you right now what they are or what they look like. Why, you wonder? Because I created something especially for my 2009 clients that I will be sending to each of them before Christmas and since some of my clients do visit here, it would end the surprise. Once my order arrives and I have mailed them out, I’ll post a photo for everyone to see. The only hint I can give is that it is something that everyone could use before Christmas and they are also unique and beautiful!

I downloaded my new version of Photoshop yesterday and now I have to figure out how to get my watermark as a brush again. Consequently, it was really awkward cutting and pasting my watermark on these two photos so that’s why they look as though a little kid did them!

So what’s cookin’ around your campfire?

PS: I have been very busy and am about a week behind in responding to those of you who have left comments. I hope to get some time on Sunday since I have a photo shoot on Saturday. Enjoy your weekend!

Diane, so glad that things are “cookin” for you. Haven’t been able to get around to the blogs as much lately, but I’m loving what I’m seeing. Great job!

What’s cookin’ around here is homework!! UGH!!!! It’s fun work (creating paint chips and drawing textures), but really time-consuming.

How do you manage to make a pot lid look so fabulous?!

These are beautiful close ups. I’ve never seen blue flame look better! The top of the pot looks great too. Fine work. My cooking was limited to baking a frozen pie I bought from an orchard business! (I hate to admit that) ๐Ÿ™‚

It will be fun to learn about this mysterious “something that everyone could use before Christmas” you’ve hinted at. I love surprises like that.
