tamar|seed factory

last friday and saturday were such a treat! seriously, i am just so smitten with tamar, she is just as enchanting as her beautiful creations and so warm and lovely.

this peacock is so over-the-top stunning. jen and i decided that it looked like a wedding dress, prompting a couple nearby to ask if a custom peacock cake topper could be created for them. WOW!

after the meet and greet, we headed to dinner and it was insanely delicious. i wasn't very adventurous, but the chopped steak and frites were divine!

i also really enjoyed meeting tamar's fancy rep/travel buddy, ellen. she was full of fantastic stories and has quite the resume!

the stitch workshop was such an inspirational time for the children. they loved tamar and wanted to be her! so adorable.

ps sorry for all the debbie-downer posts. sheesh. and thank you very kindly for loving me anyway and for lifting me up out of my funk. this book lent to me by my incredible neighbor is also helping.

I just finished that book. I really enjoyed it! I'm excited to read her new one, "So long insecurity." What woman doesn't need that message?!?

Thanks for mentioning that book, I think I need to check it out as I feel myself sliding down that slippery slope.

Darn it, I had totally wanted to come to this to meet Tamar. It looks like it was very inspirational and fun though!
