My Kind Of Candy! ;-)

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I am really very excited about this year for many reasons but partly because I have so many plans for my Etsy store that I just CAN NOT wait to get started on! Of course one of those plans is for more rag quilts and rag quilt loveys but also I am going to be adding some new diaper cakes (finally)! I really haven't worked on my diaper cakes in a while and look forward to getting back into the swing of things.

For those of you who are new to my blog or have only recently visited my store, you probably are not aware that I create diaper cakes as well. For the past few years I had been running my own website (Dolce Baby Diaper Cakes) but when I decided that I wanted to focus more on my rag quilts I didn't think that the diaper cake website was the best avenue for anything other than diaper cakes so I started my Etsy store. At one point I had so many different outlets for selling my diaper cakes that I often felt like my head was going to fall off. Not only did I have my website but also an Ebay store, another Etsy store and I was selling wholesale to quite a few other stores which became too much. Because I am almost positive that I have some type of attention deficit disorder I was feeling overloaded and I wasn't enjoying what I was doing anymore and needed to slow things down a bit. Not to mention that during all of that I had just delivered our third child and was worn out from that alone! So now that our big guy is quickly approaching his 2nd birthday I am finally feeling like I see a little more time becoming available for some crafting...yippee!

I also have a few other new fun things up my sleeve but I'll tell you about those some other time! I am seriously excited about all of it!

OH...and of course I promised you all a peek at the Nicey Jane fabric by Heather Bailey and the Dolce fabric by Tanya Whelan a while back and I KNOW that you have been waiting on pins and needles for me to post it! ;-) Oh wait, maybe it's just me who has been that thrilled but come people...pretend a little for me! :-) AND, I am also posting another lovely fabric that I just received the other day! Woohoo, I know, you can hardly wait to scrolled down! The newest fabric is the Mezzanine fabric collection from Patty Young...and oh my is it wonderful!

Here are a few pics of the Nicey Jane fabric...yum!

And here is the Dolce fabric collection from Tanya Whelan...mmm!

And last but certainly not least...the Mezzanine fabric collection by Patty Young...can you say fantastic?!

Well, I better go get started on all of these fun things...
