..october is busy!..

Wow, time flies when you have something to do every single day! :D For those who have asked about the accident, everything is fine. It was a car wreck, and I was pretty upset about it when it happened. But no one was hurt, everything is okay. It was just nuts for a few days.

On the cake shop front, business has been good! :) I've had two cake orders already for this month and doing a wedding this weekend. It's slowly but surely getting there :) I know it takes a while to establish yourself in the community, and I'm fine with that. Honestly, I haven't even had time to think about advertising (other than the bridal show I did last month, and the one coming up in January) because I don't know what i would do if I got swamped at this point. I hope to be sending out some flyers to local big-business offices letting them know my specials for holiday parties. So we'll see :)

But that's where I've been lately, in the kitchen :) I'd rather be busy than losing money! :D

..last of the 13 days giveaways..

It's mail out time! But the fun isn't over yet. I have one more sponsored giveaway for all you swappers!

**You have to be a participant in the Halloween Swap to win this giveaway**

This giveaway is sponsored by the beautiful shop, Antoinette Paperie. I was so happy when Miranda agreed to sponsor, because her work is just amazing. Here is a little bit more about Miranda and her shop.

About my shop:

I have always loved crafting for as long as I can remember. I love making things for special occasions especially birthdays and holidays. I recent years my focus has been paper crafting. I absolutely enjoy creating with beautiful papers, stamps and embellishments! My shop carries lovingly handmade cards and gifts tags influenced by European and vintage style. All of my paper goods are made with special attention to the detail and using only the highest quality materials to make one of a kind works of art to give to family, friends or even keep for yourself!

About the prize:

These tags are perfect for your Halloween celebrations!

I have hand stamped a Happy Halloween image in black pigment ink onto smooth ivory cardstock. The image is then distressed with distressing powder to create a raised image that feels like sandpaper. I put the circle on a black scalloped circle with foam tape to give it some dimension. An orange rhinestone tops the image for embellishment.

Each tag measures 3” round and is tied with black and orange satin ribbon.

This set of 4 tags comes packaged in a re-sealable cellophane bag...perfect for gift giving! They are also perfect for scrapbooking, baked goods, goodie bags, favors, and decorating!
