Okay, here are my excuses. Just for background, I live in Southern California. The day after I (stupidly) committed to this challenge, I left for OKC where I met up with 15 friends from my college graduating class. We celebrated our 50th year birthdays and had a wonderful time catching up. Most of these I hadn't seen since 1981! Here's the proof. See me? There I am.
Then I came home and worked for 3 days. Then I flew to Chicago, Illinois where I attended the precious wedding of this beautiful young lady.
See me? There I am again.
Then I came home and have been working feverishly on these treasures. This Friday night (the 15th) is our Women's Ministries Event, "Taste and See". We are having a Chocolate Tasting night along with two fabulous stories of how the Lord is with us through the difficult places in our lives. We are using the verse, "Taste and See that the Lord is Good!" Psalm 34:8 as our theme for the event. Below are 75 covers for Chocolate Cookbooks that we're giving to everyone. After about 15 hours of work, they're not finished yet! But, almost.
I'll be posting more of this event in the next few days. I'll also post a link to the talented artist where I got the idea for the cakes. Her's are much more beautiful than mine. In the mean time, the chairs that I hope to paint are back in the garage. The paint has been purchased and I'm planning on starting them next week!
