Hi All!

It's been a long time since my last post because life has been a whirlwind.  The rundown:  1) I got engaged!!! As a result I have spent most of my free time booking vendors and such.  2) I got a new job!! and 3) I made TWO, yes TWO more sales... albeit one to my cousin for a slightly discounted price!

 Nothing is more exciting than receiving the email from Etsy letting my know I sold something.  It always seems that right as I am getting down and discouraged I make a sale.  If I make just one more sale I will actually be out of the red and making a PROFIT!  I can't even imagine what that would feel like :-)

Anyways,  now that wedding planning has slowed down a wee bit I plan to pick up where I left off here with my blog and my Etsy site.  I have several new items that will hit the shop in the next month or so.  Be sure to check them out!

Picture of my first sale

Lila & Sage Cake and Catering Co. was sweet enough to send me a picture of my first sale hanging over the farm table in their new bakery.  I couldn't be more excited!

First Sale and Etsy Uploads

Hey Everyone!

Great news,  I just sold my very first item on Etsy and wonderfully enough, it was the most expensive item in my store.  It was my 2-tier wedding cake chandelier but the buyer requested a 3rd tier be added on.  Even better was that she wanted to hang it above her farm table in her CUPCAKE SHOP.  Soooo cute and over a farm table is completely my style.  My vision has always been to pair my chandeliers with more rustic elements.  It makes me sick that I don't have my own farm table to stage my Etsy Photos.  Anyways,  below is a quick snapshot I took of the final fixture before I shipped it off.

Also, I just uploaded a few items that I am really excited about and I have more scheduled to upload later this week.  If you like the fixture above make sure to check out my latest addition which could definitely be its cousin.

Don't miss out on my first DIY project.  It's a floating shelf made from pallet wood and its virtually free to make!  See the DIY tab at the top of the page.

Candle Holders

They have definitely been slower in coming than I had planned, but my first line of candle holders are slowly getting added to the shop!  I am really excited about them and really hope everyone thinks they are as beautiful as I do.
