When it rains...

Do you remember me complaining, eeh...I mean telling you that my first craft show did not go as well as I had hoped.  Well, I didn't get the sales I had hoped for that weekend but I'm so glad I did the show because it has resulted in some great things.  Man, when it rains it pours!

One of my customers from the show contacted me about a week later and placed my first wholesale order. I was so excited!  I met her with trunk load of items and she bought them all.  I was a happy girl.

One of the other crafters from the show has asked me to make her a super cute wedding cake topper for her wedding. {I'm sharing pictures of the idea below}

To top it off another sweet customer from the show contacted me through my Etsy shop and I'm working on a few custom orders for her.  I'll share those later...I don't want to risk ruining the surprise for those whom she is ordering for!

Lately I have had several custom orders...mainly for weddings.  Maybe I've found my niche.  We'll see.

Here are some of the wedding items Ive been working on lately.

  12. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
