Fairys and Cupcakes

Happy Easter:) Its been such a pretty weekend. I am making the most of this weekend with family, spring weather and creating new things. I have been working a mon-frid schedule starting at 9:30 am. I have been in training for a new position since January and now tomorrow I start on my new team and new schedule. I will be a 6:00am shift. I am happy about that, but not thrilled with my days off. Thur and Sat. But I am hoping to be much more productive getting off at 2:30 everyday. Plus having one day off during the week can be a good thing too.

I have been able to do some creating this weekend and got a few new jewelry pieces done.  I love fairys and cupcakes and have had these two necklaces in mind for a while. Just for fun I did another rose ring.  I have been working on sewing some new pillows. I will share them later;)

I am still working on my business plan and I am so intrigued with the whole process. I love the research.  This is the book I chose to read first. Lots of great advice.  The very first thing you need is your great idea. You have to envision it in all its detail and glory.  I have been searching wholesale companies for the banquet tables and 50 chairs. Also flower cases and bakery cases.  In a professional and detailed plan one thing you need to include is what and where your compitition is. I have been researching this. Its fun visiting lots of fun places to see whats out there. But the great thing is, so far I have found nothing like what I have in mind. There may be pieces of what I plan in a current shop, but not the whole package. Also so many event spaces are geared for a very large amount of people.  I am trying to get the group of ladies who need a beautiful space that is more intiment. 

And I have to share a Grandma moment. My daughter and Grandson Mikey spent the night. Apparently the Easter Bunny was coming here to my place.  I hope you had a pretty holiday too.

I have been wondering if that book was good or not. Thanks for the tip.

Thank goodness it is indeed a cupcake day. :)
