My friend Danielle is an inspiring girl. She had this revelation that she can do anything. Make candy, why not? Cook a meal that takes 8 hours to make, what the heck? Speak in front of top executives, easy. This unveiling of truth is contagious. And really if you think about it, what’s the worst that can happen? You fail? Hm…Danielle decided she wanted to make metallic pine cones. And when she asked me if I wanted to with her, I had to say…YAH!!!! In Pacific Grove, our backyards (the town and surrounding towns) are full of pine cones. So why not? It was so fun and now my house is full of pretty, shiny pine cones.
