1. I've been making simple, elegant cards. Lately I've been using more elegant cards versus cute ones for my new job and the little notes I send out to my boss's colleagues when he requests that I do so. Here are my favorite ones from the last few crafty days:

2. The picnic was fantastic. The menu:
Chicken Ramen Salad (One packet of Ramen noodles, seasoning packet removed, smashed and mixed together with almonds, a package of broccoli slaw mix, and zesty italian dressing mixed with the seasoning packet)
Fresh Rolls from the Bakery
Chicken Cashew Lettuce Wraps - Delicious!
Red Velvet Cake Balls - Freaking amazing, but sooooo rich. Everyone who comes over to visit loves them but can only eat a couple before calling it quits. Ha.
So the meal was a success. He loved everything I made, which was good because I knew he was a picky eater. Ha. We went to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, sat by the big spoon, and ate. After dinner, we walked around the garden for a little while and enjoyed the art. It was magical. Here's a very cute picture that we took:
So yeah, I had fun. :)
3. I'm totally going to do this in my room next year. It would be the perfect headboard. Hehe.
Thanks for stopping by as always! I hope to get another post up for you, loves, tomorrow. Lots to share :)
