I'm back...been sick and doing my floral arrangements

What a crazy week I've had...I was sick with a nasty cold from Sunday night until yesterday. I'm still not 100%, but I can at least function now.

Last Tuesday (7/31) I was asked to create some floral centerpieces for the conference hall at Successful Relationships in Norwalk. The Added Gift, which is a great little store with many different vendors in it, is adjacent to it. I am one of the vendors in the store. I needed to make 10 centerpieces by today, which, if you do the math, is only 9 days.

I was in a panic, but also very excited because I really enjoy making floral arrangements.

Luckily, I started making the centerpieces Saturday night and Sunday because Monday morning I was miserable. I could barely move because of the vicious headache I had and my nose would not stop running...not fun.

I also made the candles out of soy wax with help from Shaunda...thank you, thank you, thank you. I couldn't have done it without you.

They really turned out nice and I am so very proud of them. It's like they were my babies...that kind of sounds pathetic.
