New Flavor

One of my more popular flavors is the Birthday Cake Caramels

I have been trying to get into the Wedding scene. While making an order of birthday cake caramels, I thought - Why not make Wedding cake caramels. Sounded good and I have great sprinkles to make them look like they belong in a wedding!

Here's how they came out.

Aren't they pretty??? They taste good too.

Sampler Village Harvest Sampler

As some of you know, I am a long time member of SamplerVillage.

The Village is an amazing place to get to know fellow business women and stay in touch with clients, future and current. It's such a happy place!!

I participated in the Harvest Sampler. Since I sent in 100 samples, Traci sent me a sampler. :) YAY!!!! I want to share with you all, all the awesomeness that comes in a sampler. :) IT is SO much fun to try the samples from all the shops!

This is the WHOLE thing :) So many fabulous items!!!

I lost this to my son, first thing. He did let me try a piece - SO YUMMY!! The flavor is just perfect!

There we some very cool jewelry type items, that my kid took as well. Apparently he thinks he's hot stuff and has a girl to give the flower and ring too. :)
The face scrubber shown is fabulous!! I love it! Much better feeling then a cloth!
Some wonderful smelling soap that I can not wait to try.
The Curious Cupcake has keychains in the sampler! I just LOVE those ladies!!!
Lip balm from Aqua blossom - we LOVE to try all the lip balms. So many great flavors. We have tried some from a few shops. Not sure what our fav is yet. I think we will decide after it gets colder here. :)

There are also a several melts. They all smell great. I have yet to try any, as I have not yet gotten a melter. :) I will let you all know as soon as I do.

I can not express how amazing these samplers are. My son and I have such a great time opening the box and going through all the goodies. :)

If you haven't tried a sampler from The Village yet, you need to!!!!

Websites, Websites, Websites.

Good Morning!! I hope all is well out in the world. Here it is cold and foggy! :)

You all may have heard the Etsy has changed it's rules about manufacturing and the shops being only handmade.

This sparked a search for other avenues for me to sell, promote, share etc.

I have found there is not a lot for edibles. I did find a couple. Fooducopia is a nice site. Their fees are alittle crazy, but hey.....they have to make money. Foodgawker was another site that I found just for edibles. I haven't figured out their picture criteria yet though, so I haven't been able to get on with my caramels yet. :)

There are some nice sites just for promoting. The Find and Link referral are nice. I haven't spent too much time on either yet. I am still figuring those out.

I did sign up at LilyShop That is a very pretty site. I am going to see how it goes there as well. :)

I have put my Craft Café shop on Vacation. The site isn't giving me what I was hoping. :) It is a great site for a lot of people though.

If you have anything to add, please do so!!!!

Sharing updated pics

I know it's been awhile. :) I have blog block. LOL

It's been awhile since I posted any pictures of my product. I have come such a LONG way from when I started and knew almost nothing! I thought I would share a few photos with you today. :)

This is a picture of my brownie caramels that was from before my updating process. :)

Here is what they look like now.

I don't think I have any pictures of my plastic wrapping, but Let's just say it wasn't the greatest. :)

Here is what they look like now.

I found one from before.....

As you can see....lots of changes.

So, I am hoping to be posting a lot more. There are lots of things to share!! :)

Happy Weekend!! <3
