A new creation besides a pin topper...whew what a breath of fresh air for me! I was messing around with clay on a larger scale than I normally do for my pins and came up with this little 3 tiered pink cake with roses on the top. I decided to go down to the Foothills Shopping Mall to see if they had any plain old regular plastic topped cake testers and they did : ) Hubby smashed the top off for me with a hammer and voila! I'm really into collecting old retro/vintage recipe books and found a delicious recipe for Kiss and tell Cake so I added that to the background cardstock for fun.
Living in Arizona is like living in a crockpot 5 months out of the year ; ) I'm talkin' HOT BABY!!! It already feels like September in my opinion (due to the warm Spring and record breaking days already) but Summer's first official day is today..how can that be?
It's a sign to stay inside out of the elements and create my days away....so if anyone wants to know where I am for the next few months it's indoors. I rented Alice in Wonderland and was re-inspired to create a pin topper set to put in my shop. The little cake is my favorite pin : )
My parents are visiting right now from Santa Barbara : ) Mmmmm...Santa Barbara is one of my favorite places I've ever lived! It's so beautiful and upbeat. Someday we hope to relocate back to our California roots but until then I suppose the sandy desert will have to do.
June started out a little different for me and for my shop - it was the first time since it opened in February that I closed the doors for a whole week and went on a mini vacation to where we were married 4 years ago ~ VEGAS! Fun and not too HOT believe it or not. We walked every where....miles and miles...it was wonderful to spend time with my hubby and just chill out!.....Oh ya and no computer : )
But I'm glad to be home and happy to stay busy with a few custom orders and the normal day to day stuff. I have noticed my energy is down in mid afternoon due to the heat...weird since the a/c is on 24/7!
I'm starting to work on CSSTeam's Christmas in July to help raise money for ad space in a magazine! I came up with a new pin topper design today called "Figgy Pudding"...looks cute and I will post pics soon.
Until then : )
