“Life’s Daily inspiration What does It Take To Inspire You?
Daily life is full of many different experiences good times, sad times, good memories and bad memories. At the ripe old age of sixty something, every one knows a women never tells her exact age . Lol! I’ve figured out somethings that will forever be one of my life’s daily inspirations for me personally.
One of the great side benefits of getting a little age on you besides being able to be blunt about what your thinking, is having time to decide what’s important to your well being. What encourages you and inspireyou on a regular basis and gives you a sense of all is right, in my world at this moment in time.
I was looking through my ipad and found multiple pictures of food carvings I have done for weddings, birthdays and baby showers and even reunions and that is the reason for this article.
Those carvings are things that no matter how down I am they always give me a shot of pick me up. As much as if the doctor had given me an injection of pick me up serum, if there was such a thing! Food carving is my go to for a guaranteed daily fix of “life’s daily inspirations”.
The watermelon carving above was for a reunion “A Scarlett Origional” filled with fruit salad made with tropical fruit chunks that consists of papaya,pineapple,pear, peaches and mango to which I added mandarin oranges, pecans granola and yogurt for a delicious treat with a beautiful presentation in the watermelon.
Fruit cake carving
Another piece of my food carving below is this fruit cake, great for diabetics and fruit lovers a like. A real crowd pleaser.
Which is both a dessert and a cool refreshing heathy alternative for all.
Made from grapes, pineapple, chunks and slices, watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi fruit, strawberries and blueberries.
Who knew playing with fruit could be so much fun, and would encourage me to try out new things?
If they don’t work out no harm done we eat it, and I try something else. There are no failures in food carving only practice sessions ,that is what I call them, to see what works for me.
Swan carving filled with fruit
One day I was trying to come up with an new form of carving , I hadn’t tried something besides watermelons, or cantaloupe and not one of fruitcakes .I wanted to create something awesome for my best friends son’s wedding .I was catering for an expected 150 people. And, it had to be huge in my eyes. So I set to work ,brain storming looking around the internet but, there wasn’t anything I could find that spoke to me and said, build me, make me.
Looking for a different kind of carving
Then one afternoon , It hit me I could do a pumpkin carving that said, love is in the air and “Wedding all by itself,” now I had my inspiration.
What, you say? A Cinderella coach with the couple inside and the pumpkin I would deck out with beads and jewels be fitting the perfect fairytale in real life pumkin form. Your asking how? Well the end result is below.
This is by far my favorite. I have always been able to picture in my mind the end result which I think of as a gift from the Lord, and I am very grateful for it.
This project reflects a week of encouragement from the groom’s Mother. My gift of intuition as I call it. ,and countless hours of working on a true labor of love on my part
