I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

plates turned into a pedestal to display your sweets

This is a very inexpensive way to make a pedestal to display yours sweets, tea bags, candy, cupcakes etc... Take out your plates and mix and match them.
Take 2 plates either same size or one slightly bigger than the other, a bowl and a clear glass cup.
Turn bowl upside down, take plate and use sticky puddy to keep it from moving, than fill the clear glass cup with fresh daisies and then adjust top plate over it with sticky puddy.
The clear glass lets you fill it in with whatever you want candy, limes, fresh flowers, confetti, ivy etc..... I used melanmime, glass and ceramic plates. For some of the pedestals above I used long or short vases.

Flower Creations

Flowers here in Ecuador are crazy cheap a dozen roses cost $1. So I have fun creating since it cost me very little to brighten up a room in our home.
I got a job once as a flower decorator at a craft store but then realized that the work schedule would not work with mine. So I never actually was an official Flower Arranger.
