Stir... Illustration Friday

It's hard work making food for all of the forest spirits.

Here's my submission for Illustration Friday for the week.  Since the topic is stir, I thought I'd include my favorite cookie recipe as well.  Here ya go: 

Butter Cookies


2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt


1.In large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and salt, then mix into the creamed mixture. Shape dough into logs about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate until firm.

2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unwrap the rolls and roll them in sprinkles, decorating sugar, or nuts, whichever you like best. Try to slice them as uniformly as possible, so they cook evenly. Place slices 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

3.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Dear Bald Guy...

At Costco with the Harley jacket on, I realize you are a hairdresser and you're stuck on people's hair, but really there are more important things in life. Nothing gives you the right to be rude to anyone and if by telling me, my mother, and my hair dresser sister that we all have split ends you were looking to get new clients, that is a really bad sales strategy. No, I haven't had a haircut in about 2 years and yes my hair is probably pretty split up, but that doesn't make it okay to say that to 3 total strangers. And maybe before you open your mouth you should think about the fact that you're a bald hairdresser!

Illustration Friday- Warning

This is my submission for Illustration Friday this week.  The theme for this week is "Warning".  I thought about doing something like a caution sign or something like that.  Or depciting something dangerous, but it seemed like a lot of people were doing that.  And then the proverb popped in my head, "red skies at night is a sailor's delight, but red skies in the morning is a sailors warning."  So that is what my image is based on.
