What I have learned from Blogging

The summer has inched itself right into our lives the days longer weather hotter I love it. I am ready for a bit of sunshine lasting more than a few hours in the day. I work the mid afternoon shift so in early morning time I get to go outdoors to water, garden, paint all the fun things before I am sitting at my desk for 5 hours straight.
This weekend I went to a baby shower for my daughter's dear friend. I was quite impressed to find how much my daughter has learned from the blog inserts I have sent her. I read your blogs even though I may not comment all the time I have been there looking to see what creative ideas you have produced. All of you are so talented in so many different ways. This talent is appreciated back to the story my daughter had chocolate covered strawberries, dipped pretzel sticks, large chocolate and carmel marshmellows on a stick plus she decorated the containers used. Glass vases with ribbon, painted flower pots with large bows to hold the favors, pink buckets for prizes, her personal touches were everywhere. I must say she is her Mother's daughter and I was very proud.
The baby shower went so well even with the temperature in the high 80's no one melted especially the Mommy to be. The gifts there were extra special because there were so many handmade items. It was so nice to see the old fashion type of gift giving from the heart those handmade. Mommy was so touched by the love from each indiviual one created for her new little Brooklynn.
There I met some wonderful ladies who had created these gifts one in particular I wanted to share with you. Her name was Debbie the owner of
http://lovelydiapercakes.weebly.com/index.html her diaper cake was so beautiful I was anxious to know if she created others. Yes she had a web site and I went there to look. Wow she is so talented the choices were amazing and her prices reasonable. I liked the fact that she really wanted customer intake before making any diaper cake. Debbie creates for the customer I admire this since I try to make sure that I craft the same way.
I have included some pictures of the festive day hope you enjoy them I know I had a wonderful day.
Included two of my granddaughters with me couldn't resist they are just too cute.
