Creating this website is turning out to be the most work of my whole business endeavor.  I have been working on it for 2 days now and feel like I have gotten no where!

Valentine's Day

February 13th, 2018

Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that people seem to either love or love to hate.  I personally don't feel one way or the other.  Don't get me wrong, I love it when my husband brings home a surprise for me, but who decided that this should only happen on Feb 14th?  I think the celebration of ones love for another should be a daily celebration. 

This Valentine's Day my husband and I will be spending time together, in the kitchen, preparing 10 dozen sugar cookies for our sons Pre-K family day on Thursday.  We have both agreed to this and have made plans to go to a movie next week, when my baking schedule is a little more relaxed.  Please do not force yourself into thinking that you have to make a specific day special in a big way, instead make each day special in some smaller way.

My Banner​

March 7th, 2018

I finally got my banner hung up!!!  It came in the mail about two weeks ago and I was so excited, I wanted to hang it up right away.  Then I saw it.....  I had misspelled my webpage name.  I was so devastated.  So I got on the computer and contacted Vista Print and they were amazing, I got a new (corrected and spell checked) banner mailed out me the same day!  I got it last Friday and had my husband help me hang it on the deck.  I LOVE it!!  And the best part is I live across from an elementary school, imagine the free advertising!!! 

Watermarking my photos​

March 13th, 2018

I just spent the last 2 days going through my phone and adding a watermark to all my cake photos and then transferring them all to my computer to be saved on a USB stick.  For someone who is not great with technology this was a long and frustrating task.  I am so glad to be done with.  And as a note to myself I will make sure to keep up with this instead of allowing it to pile up until I have over a years worth of pictures to sort through.  Thankfully I found an app for my phone that will allow me take a photo and put my watermark on the picture immediately, so it should now just be a matter of me keeping track of them.
