I worked on and got a TON of orders out. I have been booked now for over a month...first time EVER and love it! Doesn't look like things are slowing down either, which is fabulous!
Some fun news this week (feel like I am bragging...geesh I'm not...just really excited) I was contacted by Off The Wall Gifts who are putting together bags for the 31st Annual Emmys. They wanted to put Party Starters' mini scalloped cake slices in 700 swag bags which would be given out to Emmy guests. OF course I wanted to be able to say yes, but I am a one woman show and for one, I can't push my customers aside to make room for the Emmys (well I could if I recruited help and didn't sleep WHICH I would do), second it just wasn't in my budget. They said they will keep me in mind for other celebrity events so, maybe next time!
Next...get ready Spain, here comes Party Starters! The Jewel Cake Company has a party shop located in Madrid and have ordered several of my favor collections and announcements. I couldn't be more thrilled!! SO for all of my Spain followers you will now be able to purchase my products locally!
OH yes the fun doesn't stop there folks, there is one more bit of exciting news, but I can't share it just yet...soon though! It has to do with Martha...oops...did I say too much...I don't want to jinx it!
Such a wonderful week and you know what I am most thankful for...my Family of course. My husband is my number one fan and is always SO extremely supportive. I love how my kids get excited about the work I do and are proud of me when fun and exciting things happen. I am also thankful for such wonderful friends, old and new near and far. I consider my readers, my FB and Twitter followers my friends as well. I am extremely grateful this week for a couple of friends who have gone out of their way to sweeten up my life. Dawn who I have known for gosh...8 years now puts up with my extremely particular attitude about Party Starters! I can't help it...I am a bit OCD about the way my product looks. Dawn helps me out every now and then with big orders, like today! Thanks Dawn!!
Then there is my friend Kathia from Pink Little Cake. Kathia and I have never actually met. We started following each other's blogs maybe 9 months ago or so. I am telling you the blogging world is an amazing place and I have been so blessed to make wonderful friends because of the internet. Anyway, Kathia surprised me with an absolutely adorable box full of cookies yesterday that she made and shipped to me from NJ. I LOVE surprises and this one got me...yes I teared up over the gesture...THANK YOU Kathia!!! Aren't these absolutely adorable!! They smell amazing and I may just have one right now for breakfast!
