Fresh Pick: “Wake up and Smell the Coffee”

Posted by limabeads on January 21 at 04:14 pm

This Fresh Pick was designed by Science Chick Runs Sibes on Jan. 21, 2013.

Science Chick Runs Sibes says: Sitting here warming (or trying to) my hands with a cup of coffee, I was inspired to make this pick. Make mine a Strawberry Mocha Latte, double espresso with a chocolate swizzle stick.

Fresh Picks are color and texture arrangements to help you get inspired—you can browse all Fresh Picks, or design your own!

    Thanks to all. When I meet at the local coffeeshop to turn over my design for the B-Litaracy fundraiser, I think I’ll have to have a Choc/Berry Latte.

    Thanks for enjoying this pick. I have chocolate pearls, raspberry mocha xtls and coffee bean jasper (if I can find where I stashed it). I’ll have to see what comes of the combo.

    Just sat down at the computer with my cup of coffee and checked in at LB. Imagine my surprise that I’m POD with the smell of fresh-brewed coffee lingering in the air!

    I’m shopping this pick! But, such a bummer the FWP chocolate rice are sold out!!! I love those pearls and hope more will come to LB.

    Denali says–if he can’t have chocolate rice, he’ll that chocolate strawberries (and on fabric–so much the better).

    Very pretty Gayle. Congrats on POD!
    Some of the coffee bean jasper jumped off the screen and into my shopping bag! But since I have the raspberry mocha crystals and some dark brown pearls, I guess I’ll just have to hit “buy”! :)

    Thanks all…it was fun having a POD day. I did snag some of “my” picks and took advantage of that great LB promo free shipping on small orders.

    Julie, I look forward to what you do with your “buy.”
    Granny, Ah, you DO have something to experiment with if you’ve never tried a “special” coffee beverage.

    Got my AM coffee brewing and need to pack a lunch–I’m in today for the teacher I’ll be subbing long term for starting next week. No text overnight to say the baby arrived–don’t know whether I’ll be on Friday, too (and officially start earlier than expected).
