When Life Gives You Lemons . . .

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

In the midst of all the writing and editing I’ve been doing, somehow I found time to finish this little project. My sister is getting married this month, and I wanted to do something special for her bridal shower. I figured that she’d be getting plenty of practical things like cookie sheets and towels from everyone else, so why not something fun to brighten up the new apartment?

For this piece, I really wanted to play with texture, so I applied a “grunge” layer over the entire image to give it a more vintage feel. Other than that, my main objective was to do something warm and sunny. My sister and her husband-to-be are going to be living in a town where 40 degrees is considered picnic weather. They need all the sunshine they can get.





  1. Very Cute! The umbrella is quite appropriate for a shower! lol I’m sure your sister will love that you made something so special for her as she starts her new life. 🙂
