The Finished Product, and Etsy Stuff...

My Aunt's birthday party was great. We all had a blast... good food, great people, and a whole lot of laughter. Oh... and cake. You can't forget the cake! I had an idea for her cake, and this is how the idea actually turned out:

Aunt Paula loved it, and everyone ate a bunch of it, so it must have been good! :-)

This week, I will be crazy busy with wedding preparations for my friends Kelly. She is getting married on 6/19, which also happens to be my anniversary with my darling husband! It old him he got lucky this year... a pre-planned date with free food, drinks, and dancing! Lucky man! Anyways, I will be busy this week making her wedding cake, preparing her candy bar, finishing some other things here and there, and then acting as her coordinator on the day of. Should be fun, and I'm excited!

In other news... I have been selling on Etsy for about 2 months now, and I have already made 7 sales! This week, I joined a few teams on Etsy. Teams are basically smaller groups of Etsy members who network together, share skills, and promote each other. I joined 3 teams: Christian Artists Promoting Shops (CAPS), Christina Artists Street Team (CAST), and Christian Artists and Crafters (CAC). I am really excited about these teams, and I have been really enjoying looking through the items in my teammates shops! I just created my first treasury, which is a collection of items I like. The treasury shown here includes some of my favorite items from CAPS team members. Check it out here!

That's all for now. Have a good night all. :-)

  1. Love the purple birthday cake you did for your aunt. How did she like it? And what did others have to say about it? I bet it was fun putting it all together. Looking forward to seeing the cake and all that you are doing for this next weekend.
