Here&#39;s what blows my mind. I grew up in Texas. Where you can drive 8 hours and still be <strong>in Texas.</strong></p>\r\n<p>Here you can drive across an entire country (or through multiple countries!) in that amount of time. We drove through Tuscany, Umbria, and then into Campania...the region the Amalfi coast was in.</p>\r\n<p>I literally gasped out loud the entire trip!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" /></a><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>We rented a villa (pretty much my dream home) through Airbnb. You can see it <a href=\"https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2495507?checkin=04%2F11%2F2014&amp;checkout=04%2F13%2F2014&amp;guests=5\" target=\"_blank\">HERE</a>. I can&#39;t recommend it highly enough.</p>\r\n<p>I&#39;ve talked about this briefly before...but Airbnb is awesome. And so much more financially smart for big families. In Europe, due to occupancy, we&#39;d have to rent 2 hotel rooms per night. Which would cost a FORTUNE. We so prefer renting entire apartments/villas and have done so in every single country we&#39;ve visited!</p>\r\n<p>Here&#39;s what we saw when we walked in the gate...the steps up to the house.

And it was not NEARLY enough time. I&#39;ve been obsessed with Italy almost my entire life...specifically the Amalfi Coast. So going there was a HUGE deal to me.</p>\r\n<p>And it met (and surpassed!) every single expectation. I want to go back NOW.</p>\r\n<p>We left bright and early Friday morning for the 8 hour drive. Here&#39;s what blows my mind. I grew up in Texas. Where you can drive 8 hours and still be <strong>in Texas.</strong></p>\r\n<p>Here you can drive across an entire country (or through multiple countries!) in that amount of time. We drove through Tuscany, Umbria, and then into Campania...the region the Amalfi coast was in.</p>\r\n<p>I literally gasped out loud the entire trip!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2d1a8970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" /></a><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a73dad89af970d-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"#positano via stephaniehowell.com\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>We rented a villa (pretty much my dream home) through Airbnb. You can see it <a href=\"https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2495507?checkin=04%2F11%2F2014&amp;checkout=04%2F13%2F2014&amp;guests=5\" target=\"_blank\">HERE</a>. I can&#39;t recommend it highly enough.</p>\r\n<p>I&#39;ve talked about this briefly before...but Airbnb is awesome. And so much more financially smart for big families. In Europe, due to occupancy, we&#39;d have to rent 2 hotel rooms per night. Which would cost a FORTUNE. We so prefer renting entire apartments/villas and have done so in every single country we&#39;ve visited!</p>\r\n<p>Here&#39;s what we saw when we walked in the gate...the steps up to the house. There were calla lilies, succuluents, and elephant ear ferns everywhere.</p>\r\n<p><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2b032970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"IMG_7054\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2b032970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2b032970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_7054\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>The view from the magical terrace.

And we&#39;ve had a fair amount since we moved to Italy. When it is good it is really, really good (like delicious lemonade with a kick). And when it is bad it is so,so,so SO bad (think something that tastes exactly like the smell of Pine Sol.) We had lots of the good kind on the Amalfi Coast.</p>\r\n<p>They do limoncello right there!</p>\r\n<p><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2c65d970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"IMG_7249\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2c65d970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.stephaniehowell.com/.a/6a00e551ef15fe883401a3fcf2c65d970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"IMG_7249\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>We explored the winding streets of Amalfi.

Praise God, we now know my daughter’s heart issue is due to her thyroid. She and I share the same issue and now we’re both on the right track to feeling better in this area. She is now on medication for this, and I’m on a new one that seems to be working better so far. Thank You, mighty Jesus that Your healing comes in so many ways.</p>\r\n<p>I also want to share with you that God told me toward the end of last year that He was “preparing His vessel.” I see now this was part of His plan for this year of intimacy. What I now understand even more is that it can be quite painful. Forgive me for not being as active as much these last few weeks but Abba has me dealing with some things I’ve kept pushing way for when there was time until finally He said, “It’s time.”</p>\r\n<p>My family and I have been through a lot the last seven years or so (cancer, death, financial upheavals, etc. along with some issues from my past) and I thought I was dealing with most of it okay, but when God wants to move us to new places (prepare the vessel) it means the old and lingering crud must be scraped out so that His glory can be better held and reflected.</p>\r\n<p>So that is what I’ve been walking through and Lynn has been my cheerleader and prayer warrior, along with some very specific friends God has called to walk along side me in this (really and truly amazing to suddenly get a call or text from a friend who says, God told me to call and pray with you).</p>\r\n<p>And even more surprising has been watching my husband come along side me in this time as I never imagined but had longed and hoped for. He’s been my comforter and my hero. So unexpected and so amazingly God—the proof I needed that Abba is working in my guy even when I can’t see it.</p>\r\n<p>I’m so grateful for my family at home and for you, my SUM family.

Since writing the <a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/02/its-all-about-a-wedding.html\" target=\"_blank\">Wedding Day series</a> a few weeks back, and my experience <a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2013/10/the-vastness-of-our-god.html\" target=\"_blank\">meeting the Prince of Peace</a>, I’m continually reminded that I am a bride. We, all of us believers, are a bride. We are THE bride of Christ.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This past week while I was on my walk-n-pray, I was listening to a new song on my iPhone. This song was sent to me by a sister SUMite, Colleen Rogers. It’s title: Holy (Wedding Day)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>As the song queued up and began to play. It was very early in the morning just before the break of dawn. There were low clouds on the horizon and as I walked the sun burst through to greet me. The music swelled and I saw a picture in my mind.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>We, all of us, millions upon millions were gathered for a wedding ceremony.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>We were in heaven, it was light and bright. I could see all of us clothed in white. But I saw clearly that I was standing at the foot of the throne. I was wearing a floor-length, pristine white gown. It was belted and the cloth was soft and it almost shimmered with movement. The sleeves were long and open as they rested against my hands that were at my sides.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>The music was playing and there was to be a wedding.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It was the marriage of the Son of God.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Gulp….&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>And we are the Bride. All around me were my friends. You my SUMites, my husband (double gulp), my children. I wanted to press into you closely and hold your hands and link arms with all of you. I have walked this journey so long with so many of you and I LOVE YOU deeply. I felt like I just wanted to be surrounded by you as we are prepared and about to participate in the most important ceremony to ever take place throughout all history. The heavens have anticipated this very moment since before the world began. The Angels were there singing as we stood before God and the Mercy Seat.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>The Son of God steps out. He is smiling. He is filled with excitement and I’m taken back to see the love and thrill on His face for me. (I burst into tears on the trail at this point)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>The ceremony began. In my head the next thing I saw was myself stepping forward. I stood before Him and watched as my Betrothed placed a long chain necklace around my neck. At the end of the chain was a stone and my name was written upon it. I couldn’t read my name. I just knew that is what it was. (Revelation 2:17)</p>\r\n<p>One by one, each of us stepped forward and received this necklace as we became the Bride in the most significant event in all eternity.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It’s the marriage ceremony of the Lamb.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Holy…. Holy….. Holy….. Worthy is the Lamb.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>As I take in this scene the lyrics of the song are my undoing. As I remember today that my betrothed was hung on a cross for me…..&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I am undone.</p>\r\n<p><iframe allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"200\" src=\"//www.youtube.com/embed/_B0-ll_T7f8\" width=\"250\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p>I pray you are undone today too!

         "content": "<p>We were hoping that <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/04/tips-for-customizing-the-new-responsive-snap-theme.html\" target=\"_self\" title=\"Customize the Snap theme with Custom CSS!\">our post last week about customizing our new Snap theme</a> would tempt more of you to try the design out and give us some much desired feedback. Alas, we&#39;re just not getting the input we&#39;ve been hoping for. So, we&#39;re upping the ante with new features that are only available <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/03/new-for-beta-users-a-responsive-design.html\" target=\"_self\" title=\"How to use the Snap theme.\">if you use the Snap theme</a>.</p>\r\n<p>First, we have two additions to the navigation bar: you can center the links and include social media icons. Here&#39;s what to look for in Blogs &gt; Design &gt; Content: Navigation Bar:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b-pi\"><img alt=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/5688cd26-8cea-44e7-a8d1-db9e91dc174b.png\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b-450wi\" style=\"width: 447px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/5688cd26-8cea-44e7-a8d1-db9e91dc174b.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>And here&#39;s how the two options look together on a blog:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c-pi\"><img alt=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/3c1dcf28-ceaa-4204-9219-80b9dc10389a.png\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c-600wi\" style=\"width: 595px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/3c1dcf28-ceaa-4204-9219-80b9dc10389a.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Cool, right? The social icons come from the profiles you&#39;ve added on the Account &gt; <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/other_accounts.html\" target=\"_self\">Other Accounts</a> page, so make sure you have your social media profiles listed there.</p>\r\n<p>The second new feature is what we&#39;re calling Post Link Tooltips. This can be selected from the Blogs &gt; Design &gt; Content page as well.

Alas, we&#39;re just not getting the input we&#39;ve been hoping for. So, we&#39;re upping the ante with new features that are only available <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/03/new-for-beta-users-a-responsive-design.html\" target=\"_self\" title=\"How to use the Snap theme.\">if you use the Snap theme</a>.</p>\r\n<p>First, we have two additions to the navigation bar: you can center the links and include social media icons. Here&#39;s what to look for in Blogs &gt; Design &gt; Content: Navigation Bar:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b-pi\"><img alt=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/5688cd26-8cea-44e7-a8d1-db9e91dc174b.png\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec45ab970b-450wi\" style=\"width: 447px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/5688cd26-8cea-44e7-a8d1-db9e91dc174b.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>And here&#39;s how the two options look together on a blog:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c-pi\"><img alt=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/3c1dcf28-ceaa-4204-9219-80b9dc10389a.png\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a5119bf316970c-600wi\" style=\"width: 595px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/3c1dcf28-ceaa-4204-9219-80b9dc10389a.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Cool, right? The social icons come from the profiles you&#39;ve added on the Account &gt; <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/other_accounts.html\" target=\"_self\">Other Accounts</a> page, so make sure you have your social media profiles listed there.</p>\r\n<p>The second new feature is what we&#39;re calling Post Link Tooltips. This can be selected from the Blogs &gt; Design &gt; Content page as well. Here&#39;s what to look for:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec46f2970b-pi\"><img alt=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/7be6130b-cad9-448b-80c6-5dc320bf25a0.png\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec46f2970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://colleen-typepad.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550196b11883401a3fcec46f2970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 595px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"image from http://s3.amazonaws.com/hires.aviary.com/k/mr6i2hifk4wxt1dp/14041023/7be6130b-cad9-448b-80c6-5dc320bf25a0.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>This feature adds a little hover effect to the links you include in your blog posts.

Even better with a dash of mustard.)<br /><br />Everyone should have borage growing in the garden--for the bees, to say the least!

Even better with a dash of mustard.)<br /><br />Everyone should have borage growing in the garden--for the bees, to say the least!

It was &#0160;topped with &#0160;cannoli filling &#0160;and dotted wtih &#0160;halves of maraschino cherries that bled red into the sweet cheese mixture, and either sprinkles, candied almonds, or chocolate chips.

The best I could do was peel it down the side, cross one end over the end and tie it into a cross with the stringy fiber.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13pt;\">This year,&#0160;the palm crosses were hammered into the ground at all the graves - I understand that more than one at each as we sisters did not quite coordinate with each other this year.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://artjournaler.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451595969e201a3fcf3073c970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Image 5\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451595969e201a3fcf3073c970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://artjournaler.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451595969e201a3fcf3073c970b-320wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Image 5\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 13pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;\">Of course, Easter Sunday was all giant baskets covered in purple cellophane and filled with candy, hidden under tables and behind drapes and the awesome freedom to stuff myself with the head and ears of a solid chocolate bunny before Mass.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 13pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;\">There were always dresses, whether hand me downs or new, tights, &#0160;Mary Janes or the most envied Capezios as we grew older. I remember being in 9th grade and buying a lilac spring coat and a knitted cloche at Bloomingdales, inspired by &#0160;Ali McGraw in Love Story. Does anyone take their children for new spring coats in pastel colors anymore? Even at Church, only the youngest children come in with straw hats and bright coats and little white purses. Life can be &#0160;awfully drab these days.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 13pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;\">Easter dinner is a blur. I&#39;m sure it involved ravioli and homemade gravy, shrimp cocktails, and &#0160;leg of lamb with mint sauce. The desserts were pastries and a cassata, which in our family was a plain cookie base baked in a tin, which was the top of a fish tin and as large as a pizza pan. It was &#0160;topped with &#0160;cannoli filling &#0160;and dotted wtih &#0160;halves of maraschino cherries that bled red into the sweet cheese mixture, and either sprinkles, candied almonds, or chocolate chips. Our modern ritual is the Bunny Cake, started by The Empress and carried into theyfuture by The Momma to Be and sometimes by the youngest&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://artjournaler.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451595969e201a511a2b2c3970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Image 1\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451595969e201a511a2b2c3970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://artjournaler.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451595969e201a511a2b2c3970c-320wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Image 1\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 13pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;\">We&#39;re going out to dinner this Easter.

You do, because Livia Cetti&#39;s gorgeous interpretation of this timeless craft is not to be missed! The materials are humble - mostly tissue paper, bleach, and green paper, but the results are anything but.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I&#39;ve followed Livia&#39;s work for years, in numerous publications, poring over the photos, wondering at the realism of her craft. Then I saw her flowers in person at John Derian&#39;s shop in New York and I fell in love all over again. So when her publishing company sent me a pdf of <em>T<a href=\"http://www.abramsbooks.com/Books/The_Exquisite_Book_of_Paper_Flowers-9781617691003.html\" target=\"_blank\">he Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers</a></em>&#0160;last year, I was doing a happy dance while struggling not to tell any of you the good news.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">But the secret&#39;s out! The book was released today, just in time for spring, and I&#39;ve already dipped into it with the fritillarias pictured above. They&#39;re so sweet and dainty, and they make me just as happy as real ones. I can&#39;t wait to tackle the other projects.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">One of the materials that Livia uses to create realistic specimens is bleach. I had no idea it would be so much fun, but It&#39;s a simple and effective technique that contributes greatly to the finished flower. The fritillarias required hand painting with bleach and a Q-tip, mimicking the faint checkerboard pattern of the real flower. It&#39;s that attention to detail that will bring your flower making up a notch.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">But enough of my blathering.

You do, because Livia Cetti&#39;s gorgeous interpretation of this timeless craft is not to be missed! The materials are humble - mostly tissue paper, bleach, and green paper, but the results are anything but.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">I&#39;ve followed Livia&#39;s work for years, in numerous publications, poring over the photos, wondering at the realism of her craft. Then I saw her flowers in person at John Derian&#39;s shop in New York and I fell in love all over again. So when her publishing company sent me a pdf of <em>T<a href=\"http://www.abramsbooks.com/Books/The_Exquisite_Book_of_Paper_Flowers-9781617691003.html\" target=\"_blank\">he Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers</a></em>&#0160;last year, I was doing a happy dance while struggling not to tell any of you the good news.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">But the secret&#39;s out! The book was released today, just in time for spring, and I&#39;ve already dipped into it with the fritillarias pictured above. They&#39;re so sweet and dainty, and they make me just as happy as real ones. I can&#39;t wait to tackle the other projects.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">One of the materials that Livia uses to create realistic specimens is bleach. I had no idea it would be so much fun, but It&#39;s a simple and effective technique that contributes greatly to the finished flower. The fritillarias required hand painting with bleach and a Q-tip, mimicking the faint checkerboard pattern of the real flower. It&#39;s that attention to detail that will bring your flower making up a notch.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">But enough of my blathering. The best news is that I have a copy to give to one lucky reader! Just comment below and tell me what you think of paper flowers. I&#39;ll keep the giveaway open through next Friday, April 18 (11:59 PM PST).
