Haven't posted in a while I know! I have been up to my eyeballs playing catch up after our trip to Chicago for the Country Living Event. The Make Mine Pink Gals had a blast, many pitched their product. The speakers were informative, and to top it all off I got to meet Anna Griffin. She is just lovely in person. A real Southern Belle, so down to earth. She had such good tips for all of us in business and shared how she got her start.

I have so many ideas cookin' I don't know where to begin. I do need to focus on taking Silver Spoon scraps to the next level and being all I can be as a business owner. Stay tuned for updates, new creations and lots of energy!

I am sharing some of the photos from our Chicago trip, ( on top photo, right is me!) hope you all had a great Easter weekend. My kids had a blast coloring eggs, we even did the shrink wrap on a few- do you remember doing that? Til next time.......

It has been a crazy weekend here, we were about snowed in- well we got about a foot a little more in drifts. It was exciting because the kids had never seen so much snow, we went out and played and the kids just didn't want to come back inside. Since the weather wasn't great for going anywhere it gave me some time to focus on some new projects. I finished my big order of mini diaper cakes then I started working on some new party hats. I did several different styles all for boys. I usually get so caught up in pink and thought I would try to focus on boy stuff! I made some darling hats one with a train, a lil vintage cowboy and one little boy with his airplan. I love the old vintage graphics from childrens cards of the 1940's- 1950's I then embellished them with glitter and my crepe paper fringe. I have also been matching the hats to other party needs like centerpieces, favors, and invites. I have them listed on my site and my etsy.

Hello bloggers! Wanted to write a quick note as I am super busy right now, I am gearing up for Country Livings Event in Chicago which means major preperations! I have a tiara to construct for our MMp contest and I am working on several orders for my website. I am hoping to add some new Easter treats this week to and maybe my etsy shop as well. The Easter tag books have been a hit and I will continue to offer them for a few more weeks. I am working on some darling vintage themed Easter baskets ready for you to fill, and still hoping to get my bridal books completed by end of March. Please come on over and browse around we are currently having a little contest on the site that ends tonight for a drawing tomorrow to win a Easter treat.
