Cookies & Camera

Tonight I wanted to relax a bit, and for me, one way to relax is baking. It works out good because I am relaxing and still being productive. And in addition, I love sharing the treats - I'm taking some with me to work tomorrow.

I set up a great shot - milk, cookies nicely placed, pretty fabric in the background - and realized my camera is on the fritz. It seems minor, but the piece that slides over the lens (triggers off and on) has gotten slowly worse lately and finally just isn't working. We are hoping we can fix it with a bit of fiddling - and not break it more!

White Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. Sorry for the poor photo, I had to use the camera on my imac.

I wanted to add a little color to the post, since the cookie photo wasn't great. Here is something I did while learning to use watercolours. I know it is pretty simple, but I still like it and can't wait to get more practice with watercolours.

I LOVE the butterfly, but I particularly like the British spelling of watercolour.

Hi Kelly, this looks like fun! I love the colours! Lovely to see you playing with new techniques. I have been reading back through your posts this week and I love some of the new cards you are creating! Must visit the shop AGAIN!I am also very impressed with the baking! You're making me hungry!
