LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Easter Goodies and Swap Reminder

Warning ! Lots of Pictures !!! :)

Remember a few Pink Saturdays past I shared what I was wanting to get done for Easter and Restocking my shop ? Well, a few days ago, I finished some of what I had started. I haven't listed anything yet as I am gearing myself up. Did you know that packing and shipping really freaks me out ? I don't know why, but it is the most stressful part of selling online for me, and the part that physically wears me out the most. My Muscles are pretty much Mush these days as I spend so many days a month in bed. I had to go see my Neurologist yesterday and just SHOWERING made me want a Nap. Yes, pathetic. So, I will list JUST the Easter things today and tomorrow and the wee cakes and new candies maybe this weekend.

By the way, I haven't shared yet that my Hubby is in training to expand my business. He will take over all of the shipping for me in the next few weeks, after I can show him the Online shipping and the best way to pack for me. And...... he is working on a few others things for a NEW second store that we will be opening after Easter :) Here is the New Blog for it and the Etsy Store link , I hope you will add to your favorites :) The beautiful lady in the Banner is my Dear Great Aunt Rosalie ( We called her Rozzie ) I will let you know when we are close to opening, and share why My Great Auntie was the Greatest !! :) Also, I need to share this Dr. visit with you, but I am still pretty emotional right now about it, I need a few days to soak it in, don't worry nothing BAD, just not ready to share just yet. Oh, and I am doing an AWESOME study in Job right now with one of my online favorite Pastors, if you are interested in the info and link, please drop me an email. It is an UPLIFTING study, not what you would expect for Poor old Job :) .

Ok, now on to the pictures. :) I found this SWEET Vintage bunny fabric last year and it is now washed, ironed and ready to go, as well as this PINK vintage dolly blanket with Bunnies and Elephant's. The Planter I showed you before and it is now ready for its new home :) My Faux Pastry baskets are ready to go !! I only made four for now. These sell year round, so I will offer more after Easter, but these are it for now. :) I made three Egg cakes. Two pink and one lavender. One Pink one was a gift for a very sweet lady and is off in the mail on the way to her house, filled with a few of my NEW Candies. And here are my New candies !!! I will have these in all different colors. These are coming later after the Easter things. Yummy !!! :) I only made two sets of Egg cookies. :( I ran out of time. I do have other shapes coming AND I am happy that I have my teapot cookies again !!! Those were probably the favorites of everyone. I only made four bunnies and two are already gone. I have more forms for next year, but will not have anymore done for this year. So, there are two of these :) So, that is all of the Easter stuff for now. I may add a few more things this weekend, with all of these mini cakes I made, we'll see. Each cake has its own matching stand. The stands were made months ago and are cured and ready to go now ! :) I must say, there are some darling sets. See, I TOLD you I was busy !!! Don't think I made these all in one day though, lol !! We are talking hours and hours, a little bit here, a little bit there. I used to be able to do this much in a few days. What I lack in speed I make up for in________Hmmmm, I will have to think about that one ! Hee Hee !!

I have One more thing to share. Tomorrow is the LAST day till Midnight PST for sign ups for the Spring Basket swap !! So, send me your info ladies ! Name, Address, Favorite colors, etc. to Sweetnshabbyroses@yahoo.com.Hugs,

Rhea

I LOVE everything! You are so creative and I love all the detail you add to your work! It's all in the detail! I am praying for you girl! I know how you feel being so tired from just doing basic things...I have Systemic Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I take tons of drugs to keep the Lupus supressed and that in itself is tiring sometimes. If you ever need to talk, give me a holler. Remember, God is in control and He obviously has a plan for your life. I pray that he blesses you and gives you favor in this next thing you are going through. BEcs

Rhea, Rhea, Rhea!!! Such pretties! Me thinks you've been working a bit too hard, tho! Love your new little faux heart candies and you know I've always adored your cakes and cookies! Too sweet for words!

Let me know what the dr. said. And I'm so glad your hubby is such a help to you! I'll go check out your new blog!

Big TX Hugs,

Hi Rhea:
I've been waiting forever for your cookies to come back on Etsy. LOVE the egg shaped ones but I want to be able to leave them out all year. I hope I don't miss out. I will keep checking back. Is it possible to get a special order or for you to email me as soon as you list them?
Also, FYI, I HATE packing, shipping, mailing. It stresses me out too. I am always worried that the items are going to break or that the buyer won't like them. Plus, I have sensory issues and hate touching cardboard boxes! LOL What a mess we can make ourselves. Anyway, PLEASE, if at all possible, email me if I can reserve cookies on ETSY!
I thought I could do the basket swap but life is crazy now. I'll just drool over everyone elses baskets!
Feel better!
Roselle

Everything is beautiful!!!! I'd LOVE to own the aqua mini cake and matching stand. When will you be adding it to your shop?

Melissa said...

Did you know that through the magic of Paypal you can sell directly from your blog? You can by pass etsy altogether!
p.s. is everything sold out? I can't find anything on your etsy site.
