Divine Diaper Cakes...it is official!

I am now in business for myself! I have officially started Divine Diaper Cakes. Please check out my new blog, http://divinediapercakes.blogspot.com. If you are in the Houston area & would like to order, I have set up a new email address for you to contact me at.

I have to admit I am a bit nervous. I have never had my own business before. I hope this is the start of something bigger. I am quite creative & have made many things that people keep telling me I need to sell to others. It's not like I have all the extra time in the world w/ 3 7.5 mth old triplets to care for so I am taking it 1 step at a time. I definitely have the time to get diaper cakes rolling out!

I know this blog is suppose to be about the kids but I want to share some things I have made in the past that has spurred this interest. It all started w/ my best friend's wedding. She asked me to make her invitations. That was the beginning. Then I made everything for our wedding from the invitations to the floral arrangements to the bouquet to the center pieces...EVERYTHING!

This is the program & the invitation.



This is a dry floral arrangement. I think I made 4 total.



These are the corsages I made.





I have made so many things over the years & I really enjoy it. I have dabbles in sewing & hope to start that again once the kids get a little older. Most of this stuff, I try & am able to do such as the flowers w/ not much effort. I guess it is my "gift". I hope that I can expand the diaper cake business one day to include a few other things such as invitations (I love creating those) & wine bottle labels (another passion of mine).

Please spread the word! It would be great to get business moving along & help Todd w/ the bills or extras we need for the kids.

Hey, Astrid
Good luck with the diaper business. When we found each other on the triple connection, you said we needed to talk on the phone, to see what else we have in commen. Well I too love to make stuff. I make the invitations, I also starting making hair bows with the interchangable headbands. I worked at a floral shop forever ago, and now get asked to maked all sorts of stuff. I am cracking up and HOW MUCH we have in commmen. We HAVE to talk in person. Hope to hear from you soon.
