Amazing Talent

Its so hard to keep secrets! Finally I can share the news with you...
Elyse's blog is featured in the May issue of Romantic Homes. I am so happy for her. I found out last week and called her immediately and was thrilled that I got to share the news with her first! I've been dying to post about it but I thought she should be the first to let her readers know.
Here is an example of her amazing handmade things. I love red & green together
 (Elyse I thought you would make me keep the secret forever, lol.) If you dont know Elyse, visit her at Cottage. Her blog is so charming! 

I would like to introduce you to another talented  lady...

This beautiful cake top is the work of my friend Candy.

If this was on top of my cake I wouldn't mind another birthday!

Aren't these cupcake picks adoreable?

I love these tags.

This banner is to die for! Candy also designs packaging for small businesses.
You can see more of her handmade creations on her etsy site: Acquired Charm.

Congratulations to Elyse for being featured and to Candy for opening your Etsy store! Good luck ladies, I love you both. You are truly treasures!
