What have I been up to?

As I told you on my last post, this is my very fist week off from school. Yay! When I say off, I mean not taking classes.  However I still have to be in the lab doing research for 30+ hours a week. Grr! It’s ok though because it is less stressful than turning in papers and sitting through long-not-so-interesting lectures, besides, my schedule can be a little more flexible during the summer. This flexibility has allowed me (so far) to use a couple of mornings to prepare orders before going to school, since I don’t have much time in the afternoons. (When I come home, my baby, my husband, and I are all dead tired!).

On a similar note… I wanted to share some photos of the latest custom orders I’ve worked on. You’ll be surprise of what the outcome is of bouncing ideas back and forth. I’m here for you, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have something in mind that you have not being able to find anywhere else. 

Until the next post! ;)

Officially back!...

Dessert Table from my Baby's Birthday.
Oh.. wow! It has been about 4 months since I opened this account naively thinking I was going to have time to keep it up. [Not happening with a 1year old baby and through your 1st year of grad school.] The good thing is that I'm done with this school year, and even though I'll be stock in the lab doing research through out the summer, I'll hopefully now get a chance to keep some consistency in this blog (in terms of in dates of postings etc).
Anyhow...So as you might have already imagined, I never got to do those cupcake toppers I posted in my very first post. So hopefully you were not "tuned in" all this time waiting for the outcome. However, I got to add some other good "stuff" to my etsy shop [baker's twine, stickers, tags, and much more]. I'm planning to add several more things this summer and even more now that I got the new Cricut Expression about a month ago. I've used it once to print out a few things for my daughters birthday and they turned out beautiful.. (banner, decor etc). I used whatever paper and cardstock I had laying around [given that it was something simple and kind of last minute] and I think it turned out great. What do you think?

Ps. See that cupcake sand. Part of it i got it from a wonderful tutorial posted on Prudent Baby's Blog. It is soo easy and soo cute!.. Go a head and dare to try it!
