I wanted so badly to re-work my mantle for February -- something very Valentine's Day-ish. It takes so much effort to figure something out -- usually 15-20+ tries and tinkerings. I'm glad I don't have to do this everyday! I'm happy with the pink effect.
I let Rachel bake something this afternoon to add variety into the children's day. She chose a lemon swiss roll -- why not? Unfortunately, our pan goes cockeyed in the heat and I forgot that. Thus we ended up with a triangle shape to roll up. The children enjoyed themselves nonetheless.
It's been lots of fun, and I hope they will be ready to show (and sell) soon! I love all the flowers!
