Just a place to share my thoughts.

Popcorn Popping!

I looked out the window and what did I see? Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!

Ok, so I sing this song all the time with the Sunbeams at church, so naturally that is what I thought when I got up this morning and looked out my window. I saw that the tree in my front yard had started to blossom, and it gave me hope that warm weather would come to stay for a while.

First time Flowers!

Today I did something I have seen a hundred times, but have never done on my own before. I put together my first hand tied bouquet, all by myself. Now I know it isn't perfect, but I was happy with how it turned out.

I have watched my mom do wedding flowers for years. Ever since I could hold a piece of floral tape and wire I have been helping her with cleaning and getting the flowers prepared. It looked so easy how she knew just where to put the flowers and greenery (I have come to find out in recent years that some of that was experimenting). I have always thought it would be fun if I could help people with flowers the way my mom did (it was always more of a service then a business).

I finally got the opportunity to help with a bouquet for bridal pictures (I felt better about this because then if she hated it then she didn't have to use it). There was a lot of guess work, calls to my mom, trial and error. In the end I think it turned out pretty well. Just don't look too close!
Note to the OCD I fixed the pins later after I notice them in the picture.
