Ever feel like you have so many things you want to do that you just get overwhelmed and don't do any of them??? Well that's been me for the last few weeks. A zillion ideas rolling through my brain but I just can't seem to get them to come to fruition!
I wanted to get some St Patty's Day items done for my shop and well, I'm half way there. I got the items made...but they STILL aren't listed in my shop. :-( Tomorrow...I'm always saying tomorrow. Can I say that I really dislike the listing part of having a shop..it's so tedious. But then again it's hard to sell things if they aren't up for sale! It's a vicious cycle!
First up are the Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes and bowls of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with frosted cookies. These are based on actual cupcakes I made last year for a dear friend of my sisters. And in making all things green, you've GOT to have MCC Ice Cream! YUM!
The cookies are just plain sugar cookies that I frosted with chocolate or vanilla frosting. The chocolate ones got green and gold 'dragees' while the vanilla frosted one got green sugar.
I decided to use a shoe box as the basic structure for my shelf. it was the right height and the right width. I initally though I was too deep but after painting it I don't think so. In person the bottom shelf seemed so empty, but looking at this image I think I will remove all the candy jars from along the back. It actually looks too cluttered in the pictures. So anyways, this stupid thing took me almost 3 days to assemble and paint. (several times I had to prevent my children from attempting to open the faux doors at the bottom! lol)
On the bottom shelf is the Black Forest cake, a slice of Rose Water Cream cake, Chocolate Peppermint cupcakes, Vanilla Cream cupcakes, a slice of Red Velvet cake in the back, 2 different Chocolate Mouse parfaits, Chocolate Nut fudge, and 2 Lime in the Coconut cupcakes
The little sign in the back says D-Lightful Designs Pastries. I used a nail art stamp to do the peacock feather designs on the side. BTW you'll be seeing more peacocks in terms of my blog and shop coming soon. I am just in love with them and want to use them as my signature, so to speak. I found a couple of really awesome stamps that will be used in my packaging and I have a custom set of art work for both my shop and blog being designed for me!
Also included with her uniforms will be pom-poms! The Mattel offered pom poms are litterally 3 layers of FLAT printed plastic!!! WTH? 0_o Sooo my poms are being hand made with pink, black and white yarns! They will look just like the one pictured above. Mine will also have elastic bands to allow the ghouls to hold them in whatever poses they need to be in!
That's about it for me, so I'll let you go. Thanks for hanging around and reading about little old me! =D I really appreciate it!
