I am very excited to be about to take a new step. One that is much overdue. I found a lovely store to put my creations in , here in our downtown area. My hubby and I were shopping in our downtown where we have numerous , wonderful antique stores, and we found a new one that is perfect for my items.
I will post more on the store, and where it is, once I sign the lease and have my curio cabinet all tied up. I cannot wait to share it with you !!
For now, I am figuring out what to put in my case and how to display it and figured I would put a few wine glasses on each shelf. I believe I have four shelves, so that gives me plenty of space to put at least three to four wine glasses per shelf. I have a few more glasses and will still play with the charms and earrings to get them set up exactly where I want them, but this is a first step, just getting a bunch on the glasses to see how I like that look !!
I am also working on the next project with my friend/ customer, we are doing another steampunk tassel and I love it !! We are in the designing stage and I do some mock ups, take pictures to email her, she lets me know what she wants me to change, I do changes and we do that until it is perfect. Sometimes it is the first time, sometimes it takes us a few tries, but it is always fun !! The watch is a go, she liked the way it looked. Now we are pinning down the first dangle for this set, so these are the two contenders, but we are still tweaking them both before she decides !! Once the first one is set, the others seem to fall into place pretty quickly, but sometimes we get hung up, and sometimes it just flows !!
here you can see the top of the stunning steam punk pendant on the bottom.
So, that is my Sunday. Yesterday was our 34th wedding anniversary, but we celebrated on Friday because he had to work a very long day yesterday, so we spent a few hours at the new shops, meeting wonderful people and had dinner in a new amazing cafe we discovered !!
WEealso had our youngest grandaughters birthday party, her mom, our youngest daughter, made an amazing cake and did some fun decorating, all hand decorated with home made frosting, butter, milk, sugar and cream cheese, oh my gosh, so good !!
this is the only shot I got while she worked, she said it was distracting , so I stopped !!
here it is cut , it was a fun surprise for everyone there, they did not expect the vibrant colors in the middle !!
you can see the candle matched too !!
the kitchen while it was in progress, we are in the middle of a kitchen reno, so no cabinets on this side of the room yet, which made this challenging, but we just got the new stove hooked up last week, that made all the difference !!
this one was across the room, no space on the other side !!
fun scraps after she trimmed it !!
They were yummy too !!!
She did not stop there, she made colorful cupcakes too !!
they were decorated pretty too !! Mommy went all out for this cake, but now she set the bar high, the next birthday is next month, for the oldest one, she wants a fancy cake now too !!
our old porch looked mighty festive !!!
the box for our new stove, that baked that cake, and those cupcakes, was even made into a fort and decorated and was a popular attraction at the party.
It was a fun day. birthday girl marching to the pinata . All the kids got a wack at it !!
So, that has been our weekend here, anniversary, birthday party, and some fun work in the studio !!
I hope you are all having a great weekend, thanks for stopping by !!
I would love to hear what you think !!!
