Nova had many beautiful bees, blossoms, and jars drawn and ready to look at as we figured out the next step for the label. She had some scissors handy so I cut out the drawings and mocked them up, placing different configurations of blossom, bee and jar together. Nova had drawn something like 12 different honey bees and 8 different takes on the plum blossom, some with the branch attached and others without. Picking out the right bee was the hardest part.
They were all fabulous and at first I leaned towards the one on top. It's stately. But then the bottom one was really dynamic looking, maybe even ferocious, so I ended up going for the one in the middle. It looked, I dunno, cuddly?
Nova is drawing the designs into Illustrator this week. Yeep, very excited.
While anticipating that I'm watching these Anise Hyssop Blossoms marry the Grappa I drowned them in on Saturday. I put some honey in there too. I imagine it'll be ready for Christmas-time gifts.
Here's the Strawberry cake.
