I've admired many Sparkleloveswhimsy items for awhile. I purchased the adorable kitty girl to use as a cake topper for my daughter's birthday, since her nickname is Cat (short for Cathleen) She loved it and it's now decorating her dresser. It is taller than I expected, and substantial, so displayed really well on the cake. I highly recommend!
A creative work in progress!
Since I was little, there has always been a burning desire to create. I have worked in advertising for the past 20 years, but it was always a dream to have a store of my own. I've been known to be compulsive about making things. Staying up all night to sew a clown costume for my little boy or attaching dragees to pressed cookies (little silver edible balls) at 4 am on Christmas morning. I have always made many, holiday themed things to share with family and friends. A few years ago a friend told me about Etsy. It was a dream come true! Anything I could imagine I could find there! I even found the exact prom dress I wore to my senior prom. Now I could share my pieces with other people to bring home and enjoy! I knew I simply must have a store on Etsy!! It was all I could think and talk about, driving everyone crazy for months. I created and stored up many things to share in my store. Then I started thinking about what to call the store and this was a real challenge for me. So I thought and I thought and nothing came to me. After trying several names that were unavailable I decided on Sparkle Loves Whimsey. I am Sparkle and my daughter and muse is Whimsey.
