Okay, misleading title…no I am not the one saying goodbye! This post is focused on bidding goodbye to an employee of mine. While I am sad to see her go, I am excited for her new adventures and her move to the mainland! Now, she is a graphic designer so I knew I wanted to personalize her gift with something handmade…and well…if you know me, you also know I am obsessed with miniatures so guess what I did…
I put a lot of work into this piece and while I had my moments of insanity (mainly because I am so focused and detailed), it was all worth it because she loved it! Ugh…I love miniatures so much…
Of course I had to cook for the going away party! I made homemade pancit because it’s one of her favorite foods. Very nervous making this because it’s just such a good dish and the taste is key! I gotta admit, I did a test run myself before this day and did not like the first test. I revamped the recipe I worked with and I think it came out great! My coworkers seemed to like it so I am super happy!
If you follow Kat, you would have noticed she talked about Butterfly Pea Flower tea the other week! It was such a coincidence because I had just ordered the dried flowers online and was prepping to make this drink! So you steep the flowers and the water turns into a very bright blue color. When mixed with acid, it changes color! I made a fresh lemonade (first time, was good!) and poured the drinks at the party. It was so fun to see it turn purple and pink! The tea itself doesn’t have a strong taste or any taste, it’s hard to explain. I would pour maybe 3/4 of lemonade to 1/4 of the tea. Tastes great!
Wow! Terrific! So impressive!
love miniatures! this office is cool, and those tea drinks too!
Thanks Kat! Glad I found a fellow miniatures lover, I hope you play around with the butterfly pea flower tea too!
O M G you have a talent for miniatures! How many hours did it takes for you to make this? I love miniatures but use to buy them instead. Do you have more minis you made? I would love to see them! wow oh wow!! -N
Thank you N! Ahhh…this project took…a lot of hours. Hahaha..I didn’t keep count and I didn’t constantly work on it…so it was about a week or two. I agree with you, I have a pretty big collection of store bought miniatures. If this project reawakened my miniatures crafting, I will definitely post future projects! I’m not there yet…lol
