My sweet Memaw took a fall while walking her dogs and ended up having surgery on the broken arm she suffered during the fall. So sad. :(
The good news (bad transition...I realize this) this situation called for flowers, which gave me the opportunity to finally try out tissue paper flowers. The tutorial I used from Kaboose yields fluffy carnations. I was giddy with the way these turned out.
I visited Memaw again a week after dropping the flowers off, and they were still proudly sitting, fresh as the day I brought them to her in the living room.
