Map Love

When you have too many maps lying around your house, you find yourself wanting to create some map art. Regardless of what you do with the map, it always seems to turn out lovely – especially when you pick cities that have sentimental connections.

FO: Lapel Pins for LR Burger Caucus

Back in December, I was asked to help create a lapel pin for the Little Rock Burger Caucus, a group of politically minded individuals who meet to enjoy great burgers throughout the Little Rock area (my words, not theirs).  For a more in-depth look at the group, go here or look around on the twitter hashtag #LRBurgerCaucus.

I finished these a bit ago, but I had to keep them a secret until they were presented to the group. 

These are the finished pins. The big image is 2 inches across and the actual images are 1 inch in diameter.

Show some love for Sweet Love

My friend Kelli is opening a bakery in Central Arkansas this Friday.  This past weekend, she had a few blogging friends over for a sneak peek before the Grand Opening and I was lucky enough to be invited.  However, I was the most unblogger-y and didn’t take any pictures; I was too busy chatting, laughing, and oh-aw-ing over the multitude of cute children (especially the Monkey Boy and the trio of Bees).

But go here for some lovely photos and blogs of the event from KerriJack  , KatieMcManners (1 & 2), Gina , Melissa , Kyranpittmanjgreghenderson and Kat . (Let me know if I missed anyone.)

If you haven’t tried Kelli’s delicious desserts, head to Sweet Love Bakery on 8210 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, AR.  It is in the shopping center with Taziki’s Cafe, on the west side of the center.  To tempt your sweet tooth, here are some pictures of the sweet treats that we have ordered … because “pretty things taste better.”
