Today I watched a series of videos about table scapes. I had no idea there was such a thing before. A centerpiece on the dining table is all I have ever seen anyone do. Maybe a candle on each side of the centerpiece. These ladies go the mile with place settings, center pieces, as well as other small items such as name cards and menus. I know I won't go the whole mile, but I will travel down the road of tablescaping for maybe half of the mile.
One lady explained the benefits of raising items up on a stand. I have a springy looking cake stand, so I used it to prop up the wooden bunny I have in the center of the table. With a place mat under the cake plate there was enough room to put the candy jar and jar of pink polka dotted straws to the side. I like it. I don't know if the evolution process will continue, but for now I'm comfortable with what I have done. I keep reminding myself this is a work in progress.
Remember the sticker paper I got at the dollar store earlier this week? I was under the impression it was sticky paper, but soon realized it was paper that can be used to place favorite stickers on to create your own sticker book. Even with the new information, I went ahead and cut squares out to match the size of the plain card stock ones I made for the Easter tree. They got glued on top of the plain squares and have added a bit of festive color to the tree project. The grandchildren can use the backs to write their names or draw a picture. Again, this may evolve even further, but for now I'm satisfied.

I am evolving. From using only the scientific portion of my brain into awakening the creative side. I don't think creativity will be full blown in me, but I'm happy it is being somewhat explored and developed. Thank you for going on this journey with me.
