Eatable Art!

Happy Birthday Makayla! My Makayla turned 13 today. She is growing up fast. She wanted a real funky cake. So I spent hours making it. I make my own Icing but she wanted this sparkly gel she saw at Michael's. Well it was a bit runny to do the sides with but I did it anyway. She wanted polka dots all over the top layer but it was not working. So I just added the lines and snapped a quick picture. Next time I will use my own icing! She was happy so that's all that matters. Hugs

OFG Monday Market Place Feature

It is Monday and I am featuring Deb of Willow Tree Treasures on my blog today. Deb is such a sweet person! You need to stop by her Etsy shop and check out her wonderful creations. Her dogs are so cute!!
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name? My shop name is Willowtree Treasures. As a child I had a willowtree that was located in our back lawn. Every time the branches would float in the wind it seemed so magical to me. I thought some day ...if I looked hard enough... I may find treasures nestled beneath the moving of these branches. 2. How long have you been on Etsy? I have been on Etsy for a little over a year. 3. What type of items do you offer? I offer items that range from extreme primitive to primitive with a touch of vintage appeal. I create dolls, doll lamps, pincushions, doll pins, hang tags, door greeters, shelf sitters and much more to aid in home decoration. 4. How long have you been crafting? I have been creating for about 10 years. I started with primitive jar lamps surrounded by a layer of moss and silicone bulbs as the lighting source. When I began to sew I then began adding the half dolls to my lamp creations. I then graduated to full dolls, ornies and doll pins. My business branched out from there. 5. Who or What inspires you? Life in general inspires me . The life stories people have to share of their triumphs and disappointments I also find as inspirational! 6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? My favorite item in my shop is Annie and the Clairabelle cow. I found the construction of this set to be very challenging and did a lot of techniques for the first time! This project I truly had a hard time putting down until is was completed because of my interest in seeing the final product when it was finished! 7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog) Blog: Olde Primitive Sister's Marketplace: FuzzB: Artfire: Treasures also twitter and facebook
