Saturday in Recap

Having missed the fields of sunflowers last summer by my mere procrastination, I took the time to stop, smell and photograph this beautiful tulip bed at my daughter’s.

Nothing says spring like a bold bed of tulips with contrasting purple violets.

After these photo opt, it was on to our card class.

Here we are in our classroom ready to bring it on!  (my hair has not been this dark since 1968! Ewww…)

And just for the sake of blogging this experience, a photo of our project.

Here was the lovely ladies that sat with us to create wonderful cards.  Lara on the left and Lynn on the right.

Asking their permission to publish their photo, we got to talk about blogs and such.

Lynn works at a bakery supply store.  She commented how suddenly they were getting all kinds of special orders for very specific items from women everywhere.

These orders were prompted by a specific blog these ladies where reading…you guessed it and so did I….

It is a small blogging world!

Erika looked thrilled as I took yet another photo!  Sorry, baby!

We managed to finish all 8 cards under the time limit, but some cards are missing.

Where did they go?  I only count six…hmmm

After a lovely lunch and a few more hours of shopping, I had to scurry home to help my hubby prepare the

famous Tyler Florence Fish Taco menu for my family and neighbors.

Speaking of Tyler Florence….I know we weren’t but humor me…

there is a fantastic post in the making to be published in 2 weeks…

Did I tell you that I am in love with Tyler Florence?  Really…love!

Happy Sunday to ya’ll!!!

Those tulips are beautiful with that purple contrast! And I know first-hand how adorable those cards must be in real life;) How were the tacos?
