Cupcake Charm! And Etsy Treasury..

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all having a great start to the week. As you know I set myself up an Etsy shop, called 'Priscillas Cottage' Lisa's Creations for my Fimo Charms and Pendants.
I am having a fun old time figuring out listing items and learning about SEO! I have added a new item that I loved making.... a Cupcake Charm! I made one for a lady who asked for a cupcake with a rose on top and this was the result. It reminds me of the shabby chic decorations!
There are so many great shops on Etsy I wonder how anybody sells anything! Its fun though and a good way to promote my work. No sales through Etsy yet but I remain optimistic.

I am also on Facebook where the lady that asked for this charm found me.

Here is my latest creation...I think I will make one for myself too! I am making more charms with various themes. I am working on Easter charms at the moment...

I have also been featured in a Treasury. My cake pendant at the bottom left!

I hope you have enjoyed viewing my creations, Let me know what you think

Bye for now xx Priscilla

Keep Calm and Carry on decor...

Hi Everyone,
I think everyone has seen these 'Keep calm' posters by now, Keep calm and Bake, Keep calm and eat a cupcake........ Well I found this original 'Keep Calm and Carry On' canvas in a local shop! I love it. I thought I would share where it now lives. In my living room above the fireplace. I have to admit in the time I have lived in this house I have never had a picture above the fireplace, I didn't really miss one not been there, I thought about it, but nothing ever said it needed to live there....but this new picture does,I think it looks perfectly at home,what do you think?
Can you see the other picture frame? This is a project I have had in mind for a while. As you know I love cakes, anything cake related, well I found some beautiful cake wrapping paper it is yellow with cakes on it, with sparkle glitter on the frosting, It is hard to see in the photos but it really sparkles in the light. I decided to frame the paper..... very simple and affective. I am quite happy with my little decorating project...... lol
My house is quite cottage in design, but I wanted to add a little retro colour into the mix, to brighten things up a bit... I am also working on some colourful cushions for the chair in this room, I will share those in another post. Hope you enjoyed the mini tour of my living room...
See you again soon
