Blogshop Miami

In i made this on September 17, 2012 at 6:00 am

It’s been on my to-do list to attend a Blogshop but I was just waiting for the class to end up in Florida!  Well they are finally coming and instead of being a student I submitted my name as an intern!  I was so excited when I found out they were coming to Miami – I levitated out of bed last night to research it quickly and figure out my plan of attack.  One of the reasons I decided to even go to school and learn web and graphic design was because I was religiously following the founder of Blogshop, Bri Emery‘s blog DesignLoveFest

So Bri, or whoever may be checking out my blog – this is my first attempt to grab your attention.  Ya know, to plant the seed, if you will!  Throughout the month I’ll be submitting two other fun graphics and videos to ensure that i will be a great choice as your blogshop intern in Miami.

Lavender Lemonade:

Yield: 6 servings
Prep time: 15min, Cook time: 15min
Adapted from: spoonwithme.com (syrup), allrecipes.com (lemonade)

1 Cup lemon juice freshly squeezed 6-8 lemons (best at room temp.)
½ Cup to 1 Cup lavender simple syrup

Lavender Simple Syrup

Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, over high heat. Immediately remove from heat, stir in lavender flowers, and allow to sit until cooled to room temperature. Strain, pressing the lavender flowers to release oils. Can be refrigerated in a jar for up to 2 weeks.
