Featured Business of the Month... GIVEAWAY!!

Since having the opportunity to be featured at four other businesses in the past month it has inspired me to start featuring others.  It is exciting to meet others like me and to help them grow their business as others do for me.  I can't wait to share with you each month the new business I will be featuring.  These women/men are very talented individuals and I have some amazing give aways for you.  I have ordered from most of them and have loved their product.  Therefore, I have asked them to be featured on our site & to offer a GIVEAWAY item.  Keep checking back and good luck!

This month I am featuring Sweet Petal Bakery.  I found her on etsy when looking for footballs, baseballs, basketballs and letters for my boys cake I made for their KSU joint birthday party.  I will post pictures below.  She does amazing work! 

At the bottom you will find the giveaway item, rules to enter and deadline! Have fun friends.

  Sweet Petal Bakery

Get to know a little about SWEET PETAL BAKERY!

Where are you from? Chino Hills, CA. It's about 1 hour from L.A., 35 minutes from Disneyland and 2 hours from San Diego

Married, single, kids? I'm married to my sweet husband Christoper and we have 2 great kids Elena (4 years old) and Marianna (3 years old)

What do you enjoy doing with your free time? Oooh, scanning through blogs like Oh Joy!, Mrs. Lilien- Styling House, Hostess With The Mostess,, and a bunch of food blogs, interior decorating blogs, fashion blogs... yeah. I spend too much time on my laptop.

Favorite color? Yellow ^_^

Favorite food? Japanese Ramen! Not the instant kind, the kind that's served in Japan; slow cooked and served fresh and hot. Also love potatoes, any kind; mashed, fried, baked, anything.

If you could throw a party for yourself, what would the theme be? I'd love a party with yellow and gray (with strips of aqua) as the colors with yellow dahlias, California poppies, flower succulents and billy button flowers on the tables. I know exactly where it would be too. In Palm Springs somewhere by a pool with big striped umbrellas, with Jonathan Adler pottery, constructed background panels with props where people take silly pictures in pretty Kate Spade frocks.

Which talent you wish you had, but you donĂ¢€™t? Umm.. woodworking? Carpentry? I'm in awe of people who can turn wood into chairs, tables or shelves. Also metal fabrication. Those skills would totally transform my dessert tables.

Who or what inspires you to be creative? Probably my Mom and sister. My Mom always told me I should use my gifts because they're what makes me unique and awesome. As for my sister, who is creative too, she is going to school in Scotland and living her dream as an architect. She really went for it, which inspired me to go for my dream too.

What thing or things do you enjoy shopping for at Michaels/Hobby Lobby or any craft store? Oh wow, I like going through the silk flower aisle during the change of the seasons to get ideas for flowers. I also take a bunch of flowers and sort of arrange them together to see if they'd look good on a cake. I also love shopping for various cake decorating tools. The industry is booming so there's a lot of new things coming out that are surprisingly affordable.

Tell me about your etsy shop/online store. How, why, when did you start your business? I started my business as a creative outlet at first. I had all these cake decorating tools that I just mindlessly collected while I worked at the local bakery. I thought I should put them to use. Turns out I really wanted to continue doing this as a business where I call the shots.

What do you love most about blogging, facebook, and/or having your own etsy shop? Oh I love meeting people and hearing about their parties and collaborating with them. People are so nice and supportive of each other, even if they're supposed to be in competition for business. In terms of my etsy shop, I really felt that Etsy gave me the right kind of exposure to keep doing my craft. If I had launched my own website I don't think it would have been as successful.

KSU Birthday....cake that is!!

Wanted to thank a very talented lady.  I knew I wouldn't have time, nor did I think I could actually make these special add ons for my cake, so I found Sweet Petal Bakery!  She did a great job!  Here is her blog post:

As I have talked about before internet still amazes me.  I love all the people I have met and all the opportunities it offers.  Recently I met another great lady on line who creates amazing things.  At some point I am going to be featured on her blog.  I recently did some Designer Applique Shirts (you can find these on Etsy) for her for a Valentine's Day photo shoot.  And from there she managed to get several of us featured.  I totally owe this opportunity to her.  I have met some amazing people because of her.  Thanks Nancy!  I have a lot to learn from you!  I can't wait for this adventure!
