Those close to me know that I can be a perfectionist and procrastinator; both difficult, stress-inducing attributes, and more so in a scenario as this. Five examples of work were required for evaluation. "Perfectionist me" also required that all pieces be new, one-of-a-kind pieces, and considered food items never made before. "Procrastinator me" couldn't decide exactly what to create...oy. The viennoiserie/petite dejeuner was an early pick and done with enough time to spare but the other four...
It never fails that I do my best under stress. Everything fell into place in the end.

Evaluations took place this past weekend. And today, I'm honored to have been confirmed as an IGMA Artisan!!!!
My heartfelt thanks to Thomas Saunders, Kiva Atkinson and Cindy Teh, whose friendship and support are priceless. Also, many thanks to Misty Barth, Artisan Selection Chair, her Committee and the IGMA Board of Trustees for their time and effort invested in the evaluation process. Visit the IGMA website here.
Last, but not least, thanks to all who journey along with me on this mini food adventure. I enjoy the company :)))
Wishing all a good week...
