Pressed flower Bouquet

 



 With the pressed flowers that I made using the method mentioned in my previous post, I made this flower bouquet.

 This is such a great way to not only preserve flowers but display them too. Great for preserving some special occasion flowers I think.

Making dried flowers



 
So few days back, I found a new way to make dried flowers the quick and easy way. All this time, I have been drying flowers just like a lot of other people still do I think, pressing between the pages of the book. Then wait for like days to get them all dried up. But not always did they turn out as beautiful and colorful as I would have hoped for. Specially the flowers after being between the pages, they sometimes will loose their color and also turn out to be just brown old pressed flowers 😒.

Carnival Birthday Party!


 Last year we celebrated all birthdays as family with no guests because of the pandemic.

This year since the schools are also back in-person, we thought of inviting few friends but keeping the guest list small since we are still not over this pandemic yet. 

So here are the pictures from the Carnival Themed Birthday.

Rock Painting

 


 The other day, I rearranged some of the river rocks in my yard and thought of bringing some in to paint. And then spent some time relaxing and painting away..:). 
Here are some of the rocks.

Paper Cut Flower Bouquet

 


When I had initially made this flower bouquet papercut, it didn't plan on having any colors. Infact it was all plain white, like the picture below. I had taken the picture of my initial papercut  and shared it. As I always have done in the past, I used a single sheet of paper to cut this out and since I used a plain white sheet of paper, the cutout was obviously all one color - white . Then one of my good friends commented, this would have been better, if it had color.

Lemon Pudding Cake.



I wanted to share the recipe of this lemon pudding cake that I made for Easter brunch. Unfortunately, these were the only pictures I took of these cakes from our Easter table. I wished I had taken more pictures to highlight these goodies. Oh well, maybe next time. But I did not want to wait till the next time I bake these before sharing the recipe or else I might forget.
