   So far I have 14 whole things for sale in Etsy. It's been surprisingly hard to organize the things I have enough of to sell, research how much to sell them for with shipping and all that, take pictures of everything, crop and adjust the pictures, put them in little organized bags and wait. 
   The hardest part so far is waiting. 

   Once I have my first sale, I'll probably feel better, but so far it's like when I was writing my book. You spend hours and days and days working and working and working and halfway through, you still see nothing for it, but you feel. . .  every . . . second you've bleed into your work.

CANDY CANES!! Up on Etsy!
I made so many candy canes! 

I think there are 76 there.  Holy Candy Canes Batman!
I made three, distinct and pretty patterns!
 Pattern 1

Pattern 2
For Etsy I called it a "Ribbon Pattern."

Pattern 3

   I am so open to names for these patterns. If you have an idea, please, please leave it in the comments!

    Now these guys aren't on Etsy yet because I want to make more and put them in boxes and stuff, but I made tiny Barbie size truffles.

   I made the big ones first, then I actually researched and found out truffles are only supposed to be an inch big. :S 
    Boy did I feel silly.
    So even though my daughter loves the big ones (which would be 4 inch truffles in real life), I started making tiny copies!

 My Cookie sheet with most of the tiny clones ready for baking!
Two of them were sacrificed to the god of heater vents. He's also claimed a tiny green sucker. 

    Speaking of tiny truffles and my daughter loving them, I forgot to post these amusing pictures of her tea party last time.  

 "Don't mind Puppy. Puppy just wants to lay close . . ."

Du-dum, du-dum, "No, Puppy isn't hyper. Puppy is sleepy. He just wants to nap, right here by the tea party."

    I could see where this was going so after he snaked that close, so unfortunately for him, he was banished from the tea party. 
   He was way too interested in the miniature foods, and . . . we've had, incidents with Barbies and Puppy before. I've come home to a Barbie head before. Yes it was a Kelly doll, but he ATE the WHOLE body!!

Been a while

Hi Blog!

Sorry I've been so neglectful lately, I've been super busy!

It's crunch time for X-mas rush so I've been making miniatures like crazy, and failing at making Barbie clothes badly!

BUT, It's also crunch time for me personally because my baby is due in January so most of my time has been taken up by this baby blankie I've been knitting!

It's taking FOREVER!!

   Also, I've made a bunch of Barbie candy! My daughter wanted "Barbie candy" for X-mas so I made a bunch. It was so cute I had to give it to her early. I'll make her more stuff for X-mas.

Four of her Barbies had a tea party with their new treats. 
Looks so cute!


I didn't have the foresight to take a picture of everything I'd made that day, on the cookie sheet. . . like I usually do, but here's some of the suckers!!

My chocolate collection! 

On the first day, when I attempted to make my lollipops, it took me a while to get it right.
The lollipops turned out nicely!
 but I had a lot of failure. 

Then I the next day, I turned that failure into candy canes!!

 I adore these red/white/green ones! I bet these will sell well.
 These yellow/green/white ones look nice.

 I dig this green/blue/white one. I think I'll make more of these!

I don't know if I like these last blue ones, but overall, some really nice candy canes came out!

I'm planning on making some chocolate boxes for the chocolates and then, PREPARE to see them on EEEEETSSSSYYYYYY!
