I am sad to admit that I have been that kind of blogger over the past year. I won't make up excuses because I know I have been spending my time well and fully, though sadly at the expense of my jewelry business :( Over the past year, we moved from Los Angeles to Kansas City, I enrolled in a hospital residency program, we bought a house, adopted another dog, and on and on and on. Just as the past year has been busy with a ton of random things, I too have managed to get myself fully involved in a tom of random projects - all of which has compromised Bead Up's time yet have led to another super fun hobby/business. That's right, I've picked up another craft... Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you... Batter Up:
Yup, watching Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes has left me thinking, "Hey, I bet I could make something fun and delicious, too!" So I took it upon myself to learn. After making a big ole' raspberry lemonade cake rolled in fondant and polka dots, I took it into work to get rid of it. Instead of coming home with just an empty cake platter, I came home with orders from people who wanted more! Though I never had the intention of selling my experiments, I have had a blast being ::paid:: essentially to get to know my cake making tools and techniques. It's a win-win!
After a lot of thinking, I have decided to expand Bead Up to include it's sister project, Batter Up! Bead Up, Batter Up, and a link to this blog can be found at my newest website, christynk.com.
As soon as I fully move into my new craft room and unpack a bunch of new Bead Up supplies I picked up while in LA a few weeks ago, Bead Up will be back in the swing of things! Stay tuned, and thanks for staying loyal!
