You can now catch me over at A Garnished Life with my friends Lisa and Nanette. I was a little frustrated with my available blog storage. Right about that time, Nanette asked us if we wanted to combine our creative projects into a one stop blog. I've been pretty lame about documenting anything over the last year or so, because I don't know Wordpress too well. But I've got lots to share from the past year and lots coming up in the future. So pay a visit soon, be patient with our simplistic current approach, but know that this new blog will definitely evolve over the next year as we compile some serious fun projects that we are constantly working on together and individually.

Westland Pool & Spa can build it for you, and that would be my husband, Matt Ferre. Our friend, who happens to be a very talented architect of Lloyd Architects recently designed this beautiful, modern home in Cache Valley. A year or so later, unknowingly, my husband did the pool addition. I know I've put a plug in for Warren before, but when you're good, you're good.
*The "W" actually doesn't stand for Westland, (as much as I'd love to say it does). No, no, it's the client's last name initial.
With the generous pizza donation from the Pie Pizzeria at Fort Union in Sandy, our teachers enjoyed amazing gourmet pizzas (seriously the best in town), fresh salad from our awesome PTA president, Kelly Nixon, and my homemade lemon curd cupcakes for the birthday luncheon.
Each teacher received an un-birthday package containing a new pair of scissors and case with a tissue pom pom craft kit and a tag stating, "The Sunrise staff is a cut above the rest!"
These cupcake boxes contained red velvet cupcakes with a candle. Logistically and time-wise, I could only deliver these quarterly. That's not my normal standard of celebrating, but it just had to go that way with there being 100 on staff.
The handpainted birthday tags
Our family just hung out together this spring break. No fanfare vacation, we all were burned out from finishing up a huge basketball season, and quite frankly, I'm trying to cut back on spending altogether. It was great to just be with each other. We stayed at the Little America downtown one night. We all took tracks to dine at City Creek and shop with the girls and cousins, Dutt and Whit & Company. We went to a great little German bakery, Vosen's, the next morning. And of course we had to thrift shop, my absolute favorite thing to do any day.
June somehow got to bypass the family rule that you don't get your ears pierced until you are 14. This is the baby of the family no doubt...
City Creek is just inspiring downtown fun now.
Quite literally, hangin' with the cousins.
The big bunny hid the baskets at the Thompson's this year.
Matt and I shared a basket this year and got the real gourmet goodies. Vanilla & Fig and Pomegranate balsamic vinegars, V Chocolates coconut egg, family videos and other delectable spring delights. I love the Easter Bunny.

SPRING ART MARKET
Sugarhouse Garden Center
1602 E. 2100 S.
Salt Lake City, UT
started Friday, the 4th
goes through tomorrow (Saturday, May 5th)
10 am - 5pm
Handpainted signs by me. Each trimmed with colorful ribbons sewn on the top and bottom of the sign. A casing was sewn on each side in the back to slide wooden stakes through to place in your yard. Each one is original and slightly varies in each styles. I am taking special orders now for next week. $40 each and comes with two large wooden stakes to set in the yard or hang on a wall.
Keep in mind, some of these signs are actually an investment :-).
Could you even think of a cuter yard sale sign to attract attention?
Don't forget to always Choose the Right!
A new collection of prints of my original arwork.
I love these hand-dyed coffee filter wreaths. They actually hold up very well in the elements, so don't fret. Great for spring, weddings and don't forget Mom!

Or give them to girlfriends or neighbors to welcome spring. I just want to keep a big basket of them on my table. I'm selling them at the Jeni Gochnour Spring show that started today (Tuesday), opens again Wednesday the 28th from from 9 am-9 pm and then again Thursday from 9 am - 6 pm in Holladay, Utah at 4580 S. 2300 E. on the west side of 2300 E. Watch for the balloons and signs at the building's entrance.
My easter basket stuffers shown above and below.
These egg hot air balloons were so popular last year, I had to make some more.
