Sweet Treats

I went to Miami to spend the weekend with my sister. We are both creative. My talent is painting, hers is baking. We had fun this weekend combining our talents.

We had a couple of my illustrations printed on fondant. Then my sister worked her magic and baked almond-flavored cake and cupcakes (can you say YUM).

Working with putting the fondant prints in buttercream icing took a little getting used to, but once she got it she was off and running (with the icing that is).

We are working on her starting up her own ETSY shop. When that happens I'll let you know.

You can see the others in my store 10 Camelia Way. Now on

What do you think?

Have you ever driven pass a place a thousand times and finally one day you decide to stop in only to discover you have been missing out? Yep, that's what happened me last week. The name of the bookstore is Wings. It's a neat little bookstore with a cafe. They had Wayne Dyer books in stock so I was a goner at that point! I also met some really nice people. I even built up the nerve to ask if I could show them my notecards. Soooo...they will be carrying my notecards by the end of this week. I'm so excited! If you're ever in St. Pete, Florida you should stop in for a visit.

A Cool Site For Artists

So, I was looking for a business plan outline for artists when I came across this little gem of a site.
It's called www.theabundantartists.com. He has lots of tips for artists in business especially how they can market their work. If you are an artist or has a friend who is an artist it would be worth it to go to this site.

Anne Gets Her Man

I took a journey to England and visted Kellynch Hall, Uppercross, Lyme and Bath. It was a very entertaining trip. I came across a delightful love story filled with such interesting characters. One could say I was persuaded to recreate them my shop! www.10cameliaway.etsy.com
