Loed them! I didn't use them as cupcake toppers because they are bigger than I expected..But I did use them for some other things and I just simply love them! Got so many compliments during the party.
Lover of all Things Paper!
I started my Etsy shop several years ago, after my sister shared the website with me. I thought it was a great idea to have my own store front to sell my handmade cards. I started having a few sales, trying to add a few other types of paper goods that I thought people might want, but there was such extreme competition out there and I am accountant by profession and was working 15 hour days half the year and was exhausted and playing catch up the other half, that I just couldn't be as creative as I wanted to. With a little bit of disapointment, I thought maybe I should down size my craft room and opened a supply shop http://www.suppliesfrommetoyou.etsy.com, to start de-stashing some of my items. The supply shop took off pretty well, and I started treating it like a real business and spent my free time keeping it stocked so I would have sales somewhere. I never closed this shop, because I was still optimistic that I could sell my pretty things, so I tried to focus on the things that sold like banners and cupcake toppers, lots of special orders for classroom bookmarks for holidays, tags and even certain kinds of cards. Again, I was still too busy to keep it stocked like I needed to. Then in 2013, I was diagnosed with breast cancer that had gone into my bones and I had a broken hip that would require surgery. The surgery left my leg crippled and now in a wheelchair, I would not be able to work like I did before. I was in and out of the hospital for several months and in a nursing home for a month, then returning home, it would take the rest of 2013 and several months into 2014 before I would really feel back to normal. Everyday, I get a little better, although in the wheelchair most of the time my stamina is returning a little more everyday. So from here on out (Oct. 2014) I am going to get creative and share my paper goods again. It will take a little time, but I am always open to custom projects, so just give me a shout, or maybe just a convo! (smile)
