I don't like coconut much...

BUT for some reason I love my mom's coconut and pineapple bundt cakes. She started by making the full size ones but a few weeks ago my dad bought her these small bundt pans for individual size bundt cakes and that's all she's been making. She makes a batch and takes them to work, at first she was just giving them to friends but then all her co workers were asking to buy in batches from her. Yes that's how good they are! I always tell her to leave me one and I'll pay her for it, she always says no but I always leave money for her. I told her I'm a customer too! I love serving mine with strawberry preserves right out of the oven...delicious!

So today I decided that I needed to sit down and do some planning for Hand Born. I want to be more organized and prepared this year than the previous two years. I also knew I had to do it away from my house, otherwise I would get interrupted and distracted. I went to Starbucks, had my fave which is the shaken iced tea lemonade passion tea and a blueberry muffin. I sat outside, I felt the fall breeze and I loved it. Fall is my favorite season. Oh and yeah I got some work done :)

Hand Born

I've got 75 days to get ready for Hand Born! Yes I'm excited to announce that I will have a booth there this year again. I love this craft show!

I'm going to pause the commissioned work for the next 75 days so that I can focus on planning and getting ready for the show. I want to create some new handbag designs and new items in time for the show. I'm really excited and inspired!

Teacup Succulent Garden

This is such a lovely idea! I stumbled upon THIS blog Epheriell Designs and it inspired me and gave me a great idea of how to use all those lovely teacups I collect from my thrifting adventures!

I've been meaning to try to get some plants for my workspace/sewing area. The only problem with that is that my bedroom window faces the backyard and we have a porch overhang so not much sunlight comes in. However I've heard that succulents don't need much sunlight in fact they thrive in filtered natural light. I must make a trip to the garden store soon and then I'll have to post pictures :)

P.S. Check out the whole blog.

"Handmade style, indie art, design, and crafty resources" it provides lots of ideas, and inspiration, I will definitely be putting it on my favorites :)
