Pretty Little things


I Like pretty little things.  I like making our meals pretty too.  Dinner is a big ordeal at our house.  It is family time.  No TV.   We discuss our days, our plans and life in general.  I work from home so I am able to cook dinner almost every night.  I like cooking.  I find it relaxing – like another creative endeavor.  Last night we had escargot, crab cakes, salad, glazed baby carrots and cheese grits.  Maxx was not a fan of the escargot.  Then what normal 5 year old would be?

The flower pots are embellished with Clearsnaps new Design Adhesives.  They are double sided sticky images that can be embossed, glittered and I am sure many other things.  I wanted to decorate the pots with more than crystals so I embossed them with Asparagus embossing powder.  Notice one has a ribbon and none of the others do?  Maxx has a little crush on a girl at school and he wanted me to make one for her.
