A sweet friend of mine brought these to me today when she came to visit. When I put them in a vase, it made me remember all of the flowers that have been in there before … and I felt very loved remembering all of the thoughtfulness that that this vase has held.
Love (and remembering those who have loved me),
A few days ago I posted about how supportive and encouraging my children are about my business. What I didn’t share is that EVERYWHERE we go, they are on the lookout for bottle caps. Especially my son. Today I was using caps at a lightening speed, getting ready for a photo shoot of over a hundred caps. When I got to the bottom of the jar, I pulled out this gem. I forgot that my son had found it at the beach one day and insisted that we bring it home, and had put it in the jar himself. I had intended to pull it out later and throw it away. Apparently, I forgot. Until today. And it made me remember how much my children love me. While I won’t be using this cap for any of my products, I will be keeping it for sure. This time, as a treasure.
It’s a day late, but happy birthday bari sowa. Life is better because you are in it. XOXO, Big Sis.
Everyone needs a fan!! My biggest fans are my children. This morning I went into my daughter’s room and found her putting on all of the rings that I have made for her. How adorable is this sweet face? It makes all the long hours worth it when you have a cheering squad like I do. Thanks, babies! I love you!!
A box of samples, ready to be delivered!
Look what came today … lots of new sprinkles to add to my already excessively large collection. Can’t wait to come up with some new designs!! Each of the round bottles can make about 300 caps … think we’ll be busy??
Plus, don’t you love my little bakery stickers? I am looking forward to putting these on my candy boxes once they leave the shop! Yum!! (And that is “yum” in a fat free/sugar free/guilt free kind of way!)
A big thank you to my friend Vanessa who put her Candy Cap on display today!! As Betty Ford said, “you can make it, but it is easier if you don’t have to do it alone.” I am a lucky lady because of sweet friends like you!
Shipped off a large order of Candy Caps this weekend. It is so fun to think about the people who will be enjoying our rings once they arrive in Texas!!
***As a PostScript to this post, the retailer sold out of ALL of his stock, at ALL of his locations, in LESS THAN A WEEK!! Woohoo!!!
How cute is this? I sent a box FULL of Candy Cap rings to my mom to share with her friends for her big birthday bash. This is a picture of her with some of her friends (at a MOONSHINE tasting room!!) a few days after the party, and one of her friends is still wearing our rings! Check out the beauty in gray wearing a ring on her right hand. I LOVE it, ladies!! Thanks for the support!
