Super Quick Update

This week has been a bit more hectic than usual. One of the ladies from work has been in the hospital since last Thursday. They found out she has pneumonia again. So they have been doing tests and such to see what the problem is. So I have been filling in for her while she is getting better. I do hope she comes back soon; I miss her teasing me all the time. *giggle*

On a happier note, I did manage to get some new things done this week!

A new size of beaded cupcakes! These are just 9mm wide, and about 9mm tall! (Yes, you read that right; millimeters!)

I've decided to call them Fairy Cakes. <3

Here is a bracelet that I made using some of the pink, white, and vanilla cupcakes. Can't you just imagine this dangling from the wrist of a sweet little birthday girl???

I am just in love with these little sweeties!

Seed Beads Galore!

I have been up to my ears in seed beads this weekend! But, oh how wonderful the results are turning out to be!

I'm going to start offering 'Kits and Supplies' in my shop soon, so most of the past week has been spent putting those kits together. I've really enjoyed the process - choosing awesome seed bead color combinations, picking out the different little odds and ends that will also be included, naming the color schemes... It's been a fun little project! I still need to type up the instructions and finalize the packaging. After that is finished, they will be up in my shop at a special introductory price for the first week!

And of course I will sneak peak them here a day or two before they are listed!

Meanwhile... I did list some new necklaces today!

I am just so excited about our next trip to Disney World! I have one of these little glitter resin MM ears necklaces that I wear quite a bit! I wanted to share them with all of my Disney World-loving friends!

And on this happy note... I'm off to mix some more seed beads!

Back to School!

I'm so excited to be working another year at the wonderful after school day care that I've been at for six years now!! I just love the other day care workers, the kids, the whole job!

However, it is taking me a while to get back in to the swing of things. I'm redoing my schedules to work around the time I am there in the afternoons. And I'm working on getting a nice stock of goodies up for the holidays as well! So if it takes me day or so to get back to you, please don't think I'm ignoring you! I've just got a lot going on right now!

I did manage to get something new posted in my shop today!

Just look at that new seed bead color! I've had sooo many people tell me that it looks just like Tiffany Blue. So... I've appropriately named it 5th Avenue Blue!

Soon, I also hope to have some new scented beaded cupcakes listed, using my new scenting method. :D You'll also be seeing some new color combos, and some new scents... Mint Chocolate Chip, anyone? Hehe... :D

Woohoo for Donnell and Justin!

In my eyes... They BOTH survived a Japanese game show! By the end of the season, I couldn't decide which one of these guys I wanted to win! I really liked them both! So congratulations Justin and Donnell!

I really really really hope there's another season of this show. It was so fun to watch! And sad to see it end!

In crafty news... I guess I'll be making more of the beaded scented cupcakes, and posting them on Etsy! I've had so many people asking for them! I think what I'm going to do is just list the basic Birthday Buttercream Cupcakes on Etsy, and then save the seasonal colors and scents for LolliShops. I may also offer customization of these later. With school starting back next week (yeah!) I just wouldn't have time to get them finished up and mailed out in a timely manner. Especially since I'm already working on two wholesale orders, and a bunch of stuff for LolliShops! You'll just have to stay tuned to see what happens! *giggle*

You can come to my tea party if you like!

On the menu is peppermint tea, and lots of yummy cupcakes!

Hehe... The smaller cupcakes are the ones I posted about a couple of weeks ago. The tiny ones that I've been using for jewelry. The larger cupcakes are my newest creations. Well, they're not exactly large... Just larger than the first ones. :D

Each sweet little cupcake measures approximately 3/4" tall, and 3/4" wide at their widest part. They have all been scented with a delicious Birthday Buttercream Cupcake fragrance. It's so hard to resist taking a tiny little nibble! lol

I'm not sure if these are going to be going up in my Etsy shop though. I may just save them for LolliShops. Which, if you haven't already, you should go check out! It's going to be amazing! Full of amazing features and amazing shops... Ahhh! I can't wait 'til it opens! I'm super excited about it! (As if you couldn't tell! lol)

Oh... So like I was saying... I also have to wait for some new packaging for these cupcakes. These won't fit into my usual packaging, and I want them to have a sturdy way to travel to their new homes! I would also like to find some little plates and doilies to include with each cupcake, but I'm having the worst time finding plain white miniature plates!

Anywho... I hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far! I'm off to bead!
