Pam Garrison's Painting Petals Class & LA Cookie Con

I'm so excited to be taking Pam Garrison's on-line class called, "Painting Petals". I love her style and I love painting flowers (second to painting dolls). Here's some pictures of the pieces I made from her lessons.
It's really fun and I like how the flowers aren't realistic, but more expressive. Many more lessons to come, I can't wait!

I also wanted to share some pictures of our recent trip to LA, when my daughter and I went to LA Cookie Con.
It was held at the LA Convention Center.
 There were so many people attending, lines were everywhere!
 There were some amazing cakes on display.
My daughter, Rachel, appeared on the main stage with Sarah Michelle Gellar, promoting Sarah's product, Foodstirs.
Rachel also appeared on the Traditional Baking stage, where she showed how to make Red Velvet Brownies.
Below is a picture of Rachel with students from the Cordon Bleu, who assisted her on stage and helped with the prep.
She was also happy to meet many of her YouTube fans after the demo.
Guests were waiting in line for her autograph and to be able to take a photo with her.
It's amazing how far she has come from her early videos, to now presenting at conventions. I'm so proud of her!
You can see Rachel's YouTube channel here:

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
