Cake Toppers

I remember going to the bakery each year with my mother and her picking out my sisters and my birthday cakes. But her favorite part was telling them what she would like on top. Not the icing flavor, she would do that as well ,but what was to sit on top to adorn the cake. Sometimes she would buy it from the bakery and other times she would buy it somewhere else like a special toy shop. In those days the bakery had a special glass cabinet of all kind of treasures that could be used for the cake. Sometimes my mother would find a napkin with just the right picture and have the cake decorators copy the image in icing. But the ones I loved the most were when whatever sat on the cake could then be kept as a remembrance of that particular birthday.
So in honor of my mother the other day I made from clay lots of cake toppers that I think she would have liked.

Some of them are listed here.

Thank You notes continued

A few weeks ago I wrote that I was committed to designing 50 different thank you notes. So here they are and if you are interested they can be found here :

Better Late than Never

I remember when I got an email about 1999 asking if I wanted to upload my new CD to an MP3. I was barely using the computer at the time. And of course it sounded too confusing. So here we are 12 years later and FINALLY my music is available on itunes and everywhere else.

I include CD's with my books and I had just run out again. CD's have to be ordered 1000 at a time. So...I talked to my husband and we agreed that all people do is to upload music to their computer or ipod or phone and toss the CD. my books will come with a card that has the picture of the CD and a code to download the music for free. So if you want one of the very last remaining CD's for any reason (nostalgia?) please let me know.
In honor of this new downloadable music I am going to be having a huge book with music promotion. Watch for details in the next few days. The books are going to be on sale for an amazing deal!!
