While the weeds grow…

Thank you so much for all the nice, encouraging comments on my last post! Sometimes I think I must be a little crazy to even think that I might be able to make a living making cupcakes and cookies. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the transition from employed graphic artist to self-employed baker. A few of you have told me you want to bake for a living too and I wish you the best of luck! I've had a couple of bakers agree to let me interview them so we can find out how they've done it. One works from home and the other rents a kitchen space. Hopefully, I'll finally get these interviews done and posted sometime in July. If you have any specific questions you'd like me to ask them let me know!

This was a really crazy week and I didn't have much time for any business planning. I did get some great new business supplies though. I went to an antique show in Walnut, Iowa and found some Sugar and Meringue uniforms(the vintage aprons shown above). Meanwhile, my mom went to the local junk store and found some great glass plates and domes for me to use as display pieces. The "Disco Dust" that I ordered came in the mail this week too. I finally got to play with it today. It's so much fun! Here's where I got it.

…and while I'm baking, planning and blogging…the weeds in my flower beds just keep growing and growing and growing… huhhhhhh

What a lovely fun week you had with all your special finds and the 'disco dust' is so pretty and great for girly parties :)
You're certainly not crazy, just passionate about what you enjoy doing.

Disco dust is SUCH fun! Today I bought magenta and red to put on pink hearts! I've used it on biscuits for Christmas Carol concerts (the children don't like the mince pies so much) and the glittering is fantastic by candle flame! Enjoy! I also bought 100 wafer rose buds today... why oh why did I do that? They were just sooooo pretty! And I don't even have a prospective baking business to justify my extravagances!! LOVE the aprons. Your business is going to be just bang on good taste! t.x

Emily, Thank you for your nice comment on my blog when you came to visit. I think it's awesome that you want to become a baker. There have been times that I've considered it myself as I love to bake and decorate cakes, but I've never been serious about it. Good luck in your endeavors. It sounds like you're going about it in a sensible manner.

Oh that disco dust looks so magical! I've never heard of it before - it looks great!
