Hoppy Easter!

Hey! I know it’s been a long time!  But I’m back.  I’ve been busy doing all different sorts of things as well as backing up all my computer files and teaching myself how to make photo collages.  Eventually I would like to take a Creative Suite course or courses, so I can post all kinds of interesting and beautiful images here, but please bear with me as I learn!  Today I am sharing some photos from Easter weekend.

One new thing that I have been doing is working in a flower shop.  My first time was on Valentine’s Day, and my second time was the Saturday before Easter; there were lots of deliveries for Easter and Passover!  The shop owner is the house florist for the Yale Club, and the afternoon was spent there wrapping daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths in foil to go on each table in preparation for Easter brunch.  I will be assisting her with weddings this spring and summer and am really excited to work with beautiful flowers!

On Easter Sunday I went to my friend Valerie’s for a toddler egg hunt and a Sunday roast.  I think I’ve gone to Valerie’s on Easter for 6 of the almost 10 years I’ve been in New York.  I made deviled eggs and lemon squares, which were a great complement to my yellow daffodils.  Following are some photo collages of the day.

Eggs were hidden on the terrace for the boys to find, bunny cake was eaten, spring flowers were blooming, I received a chocolate bunny, and chicks and bunnies were abundant!  All in all it was a lovely afternoon.

I used Picasa to create the collages in this post.  I like the fact that I learned something new and was able to make collages, but I think they need a little more work.  More experimentation to follow.  But check out Picasa, it’s free.  You can organize your photos as well as create collages and albums.  See what you can come up with!
