Watercolor Eiffel Tower

Paris Effiel Tower

As a watercolor artist and I am still a beginner, this was a dream for me to watercolor! I really wanted to do this one. I did this with pen, watercolor and finished the Eiffel Tower in Gold Acrylic.

 

I plan on putting this on some postcards, greeting cards, tissue paper at my Zazzle.com/daphsam shop.

Planning A Birthday Party Ideas From The Cake To Invitations!

Birthday Party Ideas!

 

When it comes to coming up with a party idea for a Birthday, it can be a challenge to do something different each year.  From young to older birthday celebrations, it is fun and very rewarding to do something unique for that birthday person!

Below are some of my ideas!

Here is a Birthday Cake my husband, Henry, decorate for my Mother’s birthday.

The Wilton Method of Cake Decorating Course 2 Student Guide

The Wilton method is a great and helpful book that is filled with step by step ideas. It has helped my husband with creating the cake above.

The Wilton Method of Cake Decorating Course 2 Student Guide

Other designs of birthday cake designs are for the following:

 

This was a cake design for my Father-In-Law’s 90th birthday. He was a bird watcher lover and my husband that it was a great idea to create some of his favorite birds on a vanilla, buttercream cake. 

 

Wilton 46-Piece Deluxe Cake Decorating Set, Cake Decorating Supplies

The Wilton 46- piece deluxe cake decorating set is what was used to make these cake designs. Now, it takes practice and patience to do this. Luckily, for my family, my husband has both! 

 

Now if you are celebrating a birthday in the

Summertime, this is the cake design for you.

 

Since I was turning 36, he found a cute way to add the birthday age in the hammock. 

The fourth idea is when you have a birthday in the wintertime. This cake was for our daughter who had a sledding party.

This was a lot of cake! He bought two Pillsbury Cake Mix and created the sledding hill.  Also adding, Marshmallows and Hersey Bars for the Snowman was a perfect touch.


Here are a few other cake designs that I want to share with you. Again, he used the Wilton Decorating Books And Set to help him create these cakes. Links below.

The Joy Of A Clownfish

smaller clown fish

We have had our Clownfish for almost 3 years. There is something so peaceful and relaxing watching our Clownfish swimming around the coral.  So at ease in her tank, with not a care in the world. A totally happy fish that makes the person watching her happy!

             Clownfish And Anemones. 

 

 

Clownfish and anemones have a very important relationship. The anemone gives home and protection for the Clownfish from other predatorial fish.  The Clownfish cleans the anemones and brings food to it.

Facts About Clownfish

 

 

With my love of photography, I have been able to capture some photos of our Clownfish.

Happy Birthday Clownfish

If you would like to see more of this image on greeting cards, stickers, mugs, just click on the image and it will take you directly to my Red Bubble shop. Check it out!

As you wrap up this week, keep this thought close to you.

Spring is here, new beginning for all.

Spring is here, new beginning for all. I took this photo at Epcot’s International Flower & Garden.  When I saw this Monarch Butterfly, it inspired me feelings of new beginnings, spring celebrations, and an inner peace and happiness.  I felt that this picture was perfect for different celebrations.
