A couple weeks ago, I noticed some neighbors had put some tree limbs out by the street to be hauled away by the city. I got thinking that some of them might make some neat wood cookies. Plus, the branches were from a type of tree (Bradford Pear) that I haven’t seen on the west coast. So, with assistance, we were able to drag a couple of them home. And there they sat.
Fast forward to last night. We pulled out the chop saw and got to work cutting cookies (and creating tons of sawdust). Yes, I know the wood was still green…but, it’ll be a whole lot easier packing cookies, as compared with packing branches. So, with plenty of help, we cut a bunch of wood cookies (of all sizes). I’ve grouped them into small, medium, and large. Now, I’ve just got to find space to pack ’em all in my luggage.
Just think…of all of the name tags, ornaments, and wreaths these wood cookies can be used to make. The possibilities are nearly endless.
