Marie Antoinette Paper Mache

Finally, I finished this little sparkling treat. I find confectioner's sugar to be so wonderfully sweet that I named my little box after the garnishing sugar. Mrs. Anoinette's portrait is covered in sugary glittery and topped with a wonderfully bling bling button. I just love this!

So Excited!

Woke up today to a slew of e-mails, one in particular popped out. A reply from notifiying me that my "handsome" onesie was featured today on their wonderful blog! I was so excited, I felt famous (in my head).

Tag you're it!

I've been tagged by Alisa at Life is a Beautiful Place to Be to provide five things weird about myself. That should be easy.

1. I have a ritual when getting dressed up to go somewhere nice and if I don't do it in that certain order it ruins the way I look (or so I think).

2. I've never let my dog or any dog officially lick me. I shiver to think of a dog licking me.

3. I love to eat apples lately but when biting into them it's almost like nails down a chalk board, the texture freaks me out a bit.

4. I'm scared of the dark.

5. I can bend my fingers back on my right hand so far that people get sick looking at it.

So far I've tagged...

Mrs. Antoinette

A lovely customer of mine inspired the making of this sweet little sign. She purchased four Marie Antoinette Fact card sets from my Etsy shop only to have the fourth one eaten by her dog. To repay her for her losses I made this little sign and stuck it in her package with her cards as a surprise. I do hope she enjoys it. Plans are are in the works for something snazzier when time allows me to create. Stay tuned for a lovely little paper mache box I just made that reminds me of confectioner's sugar, that is how sweet it is.
