Our second Kindred Creatives Gathering/Workshop was in April and the theme was Garden CreativiTEA! This above image was one of my invitation images. The creative activities included: decorating cupcakes, painting with tea and coffee and eating in our backyard garden.
Photography and Styling are my newest creative outlets. In years past I have been a home decorator, a crafter, a blogger, an antique mall vendor and thrifter. I’ve done it all! (Did I mention sewing, chalk paint, scrapbooking, etc.) My daughter is also a “creative” in different ways and we decided to host a gathering or workshop for other “Creatives.” At first I thought we’d do it monthly but we do put a lot of effort into it so now I think seasonally would be perfect.
Foraged Flowers are always on my to-do list! I found lilacs, viburnum, apple blossoms, etc.
The above image was a “same day” teaser I meant to post on FB but I was too busy making cupcakes, tea sandwiches, etc. But not too busy to capture this photo!
Our workshop began with decorating cupcakes!
(the cupcake flavors are Mocha and Strawberry Cream Cheese)
Homemade frostings and a variety of decorations for the cupcakes…
Chocolate chips and sprinkles; oh my!
After we iced cupcakes, we headed outside for our TEA and then our painting with tea and coffee…
Iced Tea and hot tea is served!
Salmon cream cheese tea sandwiches, PB & Jelly tea sandwiches, and fruit also on the menu!
What a fun creative time I had! I hope the other ladies enjoyed it as well! Our next Kindred Creatives event is scheduled for late June with a Pride & Prejudice Theme. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
