As to your non-response question: I do cakes some, but not many cookies, and have never entered a fair, so I feel my opinion would not be an educated one in the matter, so I probably wouldn't respond. I was curious to see what you had in your thread, so I looked! Guess I'd be a lurker here! I think most people don't respond if they think they can't help you. Good luck!

tiny little rant:

On a side note, I don't understand how 140 some people have looked at this and only four people left a comment.(which I very much appreciate so don't misunderstand)....is it really hard to say I think they both aren't good enough/one is good enough/both are good....watever your opinion is? I can understand low comments if people don't know an answer, but everyone has an opinion.....

end rant.



One suggestion for a reason behind the amount of "looks" vs. the amount of comments:

Sometimes, the topics are listed on the front page as "most recent topic replies" or whatever it is. This is how I actually found your thread. I have no interest what so ever in cookies or cookie decorating as I am into cakes myself. So, I normally would have just left this thread without commenting, but wanted to give you some feedback regarding this issue. Some people (myself, again) don't always have the time to comment on every thread they read. A lot of times, I'll go into a thread thinking it might be informational, but knowing that I don't really have anything to input. A lot of times, though, is exactly what I said..the title of the thread isn't informative, so out of curiosity, people will open it to see what it's about.

I, personally, don't really like either of your cookies. And that's a reason I don't comment often either. (1) I don't like hurting people's feelings and (2) I don't have a whole lot of experience under my belt so I feel like, "Who am I to give negative feedback?".....and I completely refuse to tell someone something just to appease them, or just to be nice.

HTH and good luck in the fair.

they are both really good - the first one is my favorite - I really like the horse too. Good luck (although I don't think you'll need it!!)

The detail in the first is amazing! The second really captures the theme. I say enter both. Good Luck!

I am a huge fan of your cookies...I always love to see what you have done!! I absolutely love the first cookie...hands down winner in my book!! I like the 2nd one, too, but if you want honesty...it's not my favorite of yours. I think it's something to do the face area of the cowboy...I know it's too little of a space to get in a lot of detail, though. I like it, I do...I would enter it. Good Luck!! Jodie

I like both of them.Its hard to pick just one!!!!

Unlike everyone else here, seemingly, I really like the second one a lot better. I like the smudging and I think it does look intentional, but I'm better at designs and not so much at realistic-looking art, so don't know how much weight that opinion has!

The first one seems a bit off...like crooked or something...I can't really tell what he's doing. It is obvious, however, that a lot of work went into the detail and you've done a great job overall.

Good luck in the fair!

Catita74 I like the second one better too. It's more artsy. The first one has some problems with the left arm not matching up to the hand and the face is not quite right.

But enter them both and I bet both win. : )

As for people not commenting read the 1000 similiar other complaints made by other people. It happens.


Good luck at the fair. I am going to enter too just haven't made up my mind yet on what to do.

It looks more like smudges than intentional shading. Although they are for two different entries, I would still only enter the first. icon_evil.gif Was that mean? You wanted honesty icon_lol.gif



No, it wasn't mean! LOL...I did want honesty...so thanks =)

thank you everyone for your input. I fixed the arms a bit on the cowboy. he is a bit "off", which is why I was asking if I should enter him or not, because he isn't "perfect". I take the good and the bad when I ask for honesty. =) Thank you for giving me your honest answers. I decided I will enter both of them, even though they aren't perfect, and if I win, Yay me, if I don't, Oh well. LOL. Thank you again everyone for your thoughts.
