Pinwheels by Paper and Pi

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

I know I know.  I was going to start blogging on a regular basis and then I didn't post anything last week.  I got so busy with orders, snow,  and family stuff but I am back.   Yes, it snowed last week. Can you believe it snowed in Georgia?  It was beautiful and not as crazy as last year.  I am happy that Addison got to see snow again since he is a Georgia baby.  We had a snowball fight and relaxed at home for 3 days.  Since school was closed, Addison and I watched a lot of movies.  I thought it would fun to watch all the Oscar nominated movies since we didn't see any of them, except for "The Lego Movie".  I guess that counts.  We watched "Whiplash", "Birdman", and "Boyhood".  The were all good but "Whiplash" was our favorite.  "Whiplash" was amazing!  Addison said it was the best movie he had ever seen.  He watched it twice in one day.  If you haven't seen it, I suggest you watch it.  We believe it should have won Best Picture.  It had Addison sweating and me yelling at the TV screen.

While I was gone I did continue to cook and craft, I made my favorite pork tenderloin dish.  The recipe is from Tyler Florence and you can find it here.  The chimichurri sauce is so good.  I also
made a yummy roasted tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches (of course).  I will share my roasted tomato soup recipe soon.



I purchased the new Baked Occasion cook book and haven't baked one thing out of yet.  I should never be too busy that I stop baking.  I really need to start baking this week to make up for this travesty.  :)




My orders have been actually taking up most of my time.  I love it when people purchase my creations.  I hear people tell me they like my stuff but one can always wonder if people are just telling you that to be nice.  When I receive an order, it really brighten my day and makes me realize I do create beautiful things.  This week has been pinwheels, pinwheels, pinwheels.  I got an amazing custom order to create pinwheels that could be used for table numbers.  What a great idea!  I had so much fun making theses especially since the pinwheels were the colors of the rainbow.  One can not smile when they are creating with colorful paper.  I love the way the turned out.





Since I was in a pinwheel mood, I decided that I need to introduce some more pinwheels to my shop. I try to make different types of pinwheels and think these turned out so cool.  Star Pinwheels!




I am thinking they would be great for Memorial Day or 4th of July.  But I was also thinking I could do them in different colors like black and gold for a birthday party or graduation.  

What do you guys think?  I am wondering what other interesting pinwheels I can create.  Well time to finish up these orders.

Talk to you soon,
