Chocolate Bubblegum Polk-a-Dots!

This precious peanut made a special second trip to my booth on Sunday to show off her new "tutu" outfit. I especially love all of the dots and her sparkly magic pink shoes! How lucky am I?

Getting Read For Christmas Show #1

I've been working on my inventory for the last three weeks. My studio looks like a cotton candy factory! Headbands...added lots of flowers.
Sari trim from India and chocolate bon-bon dots.

I'll need to find another hanging rack...

Cascades of colors.
The purple sari trim is new this year. It is stunning with the gold.

Four days until I leave for Kohler. Inventory is almost there! Getting excited.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Can you smell that baking pumpkin pie? My house smells like bubbling cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Alright, I wasn't that motivated, but I did have a hankering for pumpkin pancakes this morning. I found a lot of recipes online, but I tweaked one for a very subtle, pumpkin-y flavor; great for the very finicky.

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 Cups Flour

3 T. brown sugar

1 t. white sugar

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. cloves

1/2 t. ginger

1/2 t. nutmeg

2 t. baking powder

1 t. baking soda

1 1/2 cup milk

1 egg

2 T. oil

2 T. vinegar

Blend dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Mix together until just combined. Batter will be very thick. Scoop into prepared griddle. Flip when brown. They get thick and fluffy, so make sure they are thoroughly cooked through when taking them out of the pan! (Obviously I don't care about perfect circles. I go for the organic shape).

Fruits of My Labor...How lucky!

When I struggle deciding how large I would like my business to grow, I come across little gems like this video I just received. The client bought this witch-y tutu for her little song-bird. It reminds me how lucky I am... and how important focused, individualized service and touches really are.
