My first giveaway....

I've been trying to come up with ideas on how to get more people to my site.. I've emailed (spammed) my family and friends.. I've plastered it all over my Facebook...

Another blogger commented that maybe I should do a giveaway.. and that's a great idea.. SOO I'm going to give it a shot!!! I'm currently holding a PartyLite Candle Catalog party (if your in the DFW area and your interested in looking, msg me and I'll give you a link for an online catalog!)... Ok.. so back to the giveaway... I've decided that I'm going to giveaway a $25 GC for Partylite.. What do you have to do to win this? I'd like for you to do a quick blogpost on your site about my site here at to get visitors here. After you make a post to your blog, just come back to this post, and leave me a comment letting me know that you've highlighted me in one of your posts... I'll then draw a name at random, and that person will win a GC. My show closes on October 15th, so I'll place the order then! So you'll have your GC in your hands around the end of October.
I'll close this contest on October 5th.... Good luck... :-)
Oh.. and I also thought that some people might like to see a picture of me.. who they are dealing with when highlighting my website... so here you go..
This is me and my husband, picture taken a few weeks ago by

And just so you know..
I've been contacted several times about my cakes I've shown on my site. All of my orders are custom orders, so what's shown on my site, are just examples of what I can do. Some of them I can duplicate exactly, but some of them have items that are no longer found. I've heard, I love that towel cake but I don't know anyone getting married.. Towel cakes would be a great idea for many occassions.. Maybe you want a small kitchen towel set to give to your new neighbor as a welcome gift? Or a towel cake for someone that just headed off to college? A Bridal Shower, wedding, housewarming gift?.. Maybe your a real estate agent and send gifts to your customers? I could do a small kitchen towel cake for you.. the ideas are endless!!

Best Buddies Diaper Cake

This is a diaper cake I made for a lady at church several months ago. I'm trying to find pictures of all of the ones I've done over the years to give everyone an idea on what I can do!!
I'm also trying to research places to solicit to try and sell some of them.. and potential clients to reach out too.. Like Real Estate Agents, I could make small kitchen towel cakes for housewarming gifts.. those would also be great for housewarming gifts, welcoming a new neighbor etc... so I'd love some ideas from you guys!!!
They say word of mouth is the best advertisement, so I'd love it if you could send my link to your friends and family! put a link on your blog? share an email?

Etsy Shop

I have my Etsy Shop up now. I’m hoping to get more things listed on it over the next few weeks, please share my link with those that you know planning showers, bridal showers etc. Those towel cakes would be perfect for housewarming gifts as well! Both the Diaper and Towel Cakes can be customized to meet any budget, color scheme or theme you need! Just email me and we’ll create something together!

Thank you
