Woodburned Wooden Spoons with Jellyfish!

This little project was a joint effort between my husband and I! He has been on a quest for a hobby, because he sees all of my different artsy hobbies and gets a little envious when he's bored and I never am :) He bought a woodburner a while back and used it a couple of times, but lost interest because he "can't make up designs."
So I bought him some wooden spoons and drew some sealife doodles on them for him to burn! I think they turned out pretty cool! I got the idea from another artist on craftster who burned seagull silhouettes into some wooden spoons.
On the octopus, you can see where the woodburner was acting up on one of the legs... Unfortunately, the temperature started to go berserk, then the woodburner finally quit. SAD! I'm sure it's easily fixed though, it's gotta just be what? A heating element attached to the on/off switch? We'll see, because I'd have fun making more of these....
So now, my crafts have spread to the kitchen! I'll let you know how they stand up to real usage....
