Lulu’s Cupcakes

I finally made it to Lulu’s Cupcakes a few weeks ago, and I am so happy that I did! Not only do they have the best cupcakes, but I had a delicious sandwich to boot. Lulu is located in Elk Grove, California (about 20 minutes south of Sacramento) in the heart of Old Town Elk Grove.  They’ve been open a little less than a year, with the owner being a recent high school graduate.  I only wish it’d  been around while I was in high school, and college…I could have envisioned myself studying for hours while eating red velvet cupcake after red velvet cupcake.

Happy Week, and possibly Trails

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! It’s rainy and yucky in Northern California, but that’s okay…I’ve finally gotten a chance to catch up on your blogs. It was a good sales week for me, I sold three prints on etsy:

I have a new project in the works, which I am very excited about. If you’ve purchased any of my prints you know that I include a special *gift.* I will be featuring them this week in my shop, finally! I sold out of them before they arrived on etsy…please stay tuned!

Oh and about the “Possibly trails”…..I feel as if I have overgrown wordpress. I love wordpress very much, but it’s not very practical when running a business. I am not able to post javascript, and that makes it difficult with etsy. I am not sure if I will just transfer everything over to typepad, but I have been thinking about making the move. For $4.95 a month, I can have peace of mind, security…and many more outlets for my blog. I don’t want to keep moving around, but with not being able to make this blog “my own” it’s a struggle. Please feel free to share your input if you’ve made the move over to typepad, or have any ideas. Hope the weekend is going well, and again thank you for being the best peeps I could ask for!

Virtual Vacation

Today we’re going on a virtual vacation to none other than my favorite place in the entire world, Lake Tahoe….which resides in both California, and Nevada.
