While I still do that and other custom pieces, I also work as a vendor for a very nice local cake shop, creating cake toppers out of clay. My husband, who is also a great artist but is working corporate, is so incredibly supportive of all of my ideas and risky attempts. Etsy is my newest venture and I do so appreciate your feedback and taking the time to look through.
