My Portfolio Review (20 years ago)!

Well I was just thinking about 20 years ago when I went for a portfolio review at Pratt and a professor said to me, "You do a little of everything- you draw, you paint, you make mosaics, you do this and need to concentrate on one thing." Here I am 20 years later and nothing has changed. I just cut, sewed and hung fabric and decorated an entire room, created a wreath from scratch and finished it, handmade pompoms, and did I say I cooked dinner and did homework with the kids. Well I have something to say to that professor, whoever he was- I am Nicole, nice to meet you and I do a little of everything, I draw, paint, design, sew, bake, decorate, take pictures, and raise a bunch of crafty kids.  Guess what?  I am so HAPPY that I am CREATIVE! Thank you very much!

After a long day....SWEET Carnations appeared!

After a long night of homework and cupcake baking, I had some extra batter and decided to try out my new IKEA cupcake pan. After they were all baked and they resembled mushrooms, I had a BRIGHT idea! Why not make them roses. So after the first wilted rose, I decided carnations were the way to go. The cupcake liners matched perfectly with a vase I purchased also at IKEA, so the Cupcake Carnation Centerpiece was born! To show my appreciation and give thanks to my daughter's teacher I presented her with this centerpiece to enjoy on Thanksgiving!
