Easter has significant meaning for those of us who are Christians. I have seen many Easter cards but this is one from Wit & Whistle is by far one of my faves. Just had to pick it up for a friend
Loved her description: “I think Jesus is sad each Easter when we put more emphasis on a basket-wielding bunny than on remembering the sacrifice he made for us. So, I decided to skip the expected bunny card in favor of something with a little more meaning. “

This afternoon, a few friends and I got together to put some succulents together in the container of our choice! It was so much fun and quite therapeutic! For those who do not have a green thumb, like me, succulents are really a great way to start because they do not need too much care. I must admit, whoever said that it’s hard to kill a succulent, must have not killed one before because I definitely have failed a few times. For the most part, the survival rate of succulents in my care have been 75% so that isn’t so bad!
The containers that were used were a tea cup, a glass bowl from CB2, an awesome bird feeder and eggshells that was inspired from Pinterest!
We had a blast putting these together! Then we went to dinner afterwards at Gochi Fusion Japanese Tapas Restaurant! Go to FOODERIE to check out the yummy pictures from that!
Sorry that I (Lisa) have been hiatus for the past couple months… not that design is not on my mind but in the last few months I have been, what people may call, following after my dreams. I have always loved to bake before food channels were cool. I baked since I was 10 years old. Many failed attempts and many successful ones. I started to really get into it more with more making more complicated things like the finicky macaron and the buttery croissant.
An opportunity came to me in July of last year to work in a michelin restaurant along side their pastry chef for 6 months. I quit my job and jumped on that opportunity. Never thought that I would quit my 9-5 career to pursue what I really love. As I worked long hours and learned the ins and outs of the restaurant business, I worked along an amazing pastry chef. I learned so much from those 6 months. This was a make it or break it for me. I could have left this opportunity realizing that this wasn’t for me… but I didn’t. This was for me. So what am I doing now since my internship is up? I am now in pastry school to become a pastry chef. I am excited beyond belief.
You may think that this blog may be a good-bye to JJ but this is not. If our lives are not crazy enough and soon-to-be more crazy when JolieJolie will be outnumbered by our children, we are so excited to announce ….
While we share about the designs we create and love, we now are going to be able to share that with food as well on FOODERIE! Be patient with us as we get up and running but LIKE us and following us! We are so thankful for our fans and without you this could not happen!
