Hi My name is Liseth and one of the things I remember most when I was growing up was watching my grandmother sew fabric into the most beautiful creations. That's where my love for sewing came from. I love to travel and learn different cultures. As well hike and spend time with loved ones. My future goal: I hope to one day go to Thailand and Bora Bora.

Take a Stand

As my mom would say what is a wedding without the cake! After doing some research, I found the perfect cake layout at the bakery's catalog, a simple cake with butterfly on a tree stand. I never knew trying to find the tree stand would be so hard, the bakery shop gave me a phone number of someone that would rent and/or sell, but funny thing he wanted to rent me the stand more than the cake purchase.....ummm no thank you! My fiance and I the next day went to look at house paint and when we passed by the plants I said "stop", I think this is the tree stand. He helped me take all the plants on display on it and there it was, way cheaper than the rental and it would be ours too keep. I put more moss on it, added some flowers, rocks...and here is my tree cake stand:
