Yes photobucket is a wonderful thing!!! As is burning a cd periodically. Depending on how many cakes you make and how often, I only make one every few months or so and don't have enough to build a cd's worth right now so... Also using a digital camera with a memory card in it which only cost about $20.~ at staples is great because once full you can just store it in it's little snap shut box and save it for future needs. Good luck getting the memory outta the old on and into the new one it's very easy but if a virus took your old comp down or the mother board got fried your memory isn't going to be any good to you icon_sad.gif

Here's mine. Excuse the stuff on the counter I was organizing. That long counter is 10 ft long. It doesn't look that big in the picture.

The door looks cute! Did you do it? Also, I noticed you didn't have your own WWW for your business, but it's good to have it and that'll help you with sale increase.

I do have www....but I don't have it in a link because I want you to click my siggy link so that Google starts to recognize me.

littlecake Posted 21 Dec 2006 , 11:13pm

wow...it's spotless!

i love the lettering on your door.....

so those shoes are really comfy?...looks like they'd clean up well...seems like on busy days i'm always dropping icing on my foot....ha!

SweetConfectionsChef Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 2:44am

I'm going to try and attach pics of my shop.....

SweetConfectionsChef Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 2:47am

Ok, it said it couldn't add it because it must be less than 800 pixels wide and 800 pixels high....how can I fix this so I can post?

patticakesnc Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 2:54am

Open the pics in paint. Go to image. Then stretch/skew. Go to stretch and then in the horizontal and vertical boxes put 50 in each. This will down size them for you. Then save them and try again.

Sugarbean Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 2:11pm

Upload them to photobucket, then there is no limit to number and size to put on. icon_smile.gif

I was curious, I went to look, how cute is that corner! is all your shop faux painted??

littlecake Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 3:00pm

most of the rest of it is just heart borders,stripes ,faux finishes and rose borders....

that corner was empty, and i thought it just ..."needed something"....of course my son says i'm like dolly parton, more is more...i couldn't just leave any negative space....ha ha.

RisqueBusiness Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 4:13pm

Sugar bean your place is soooooooooooo NEAT!! lol

Mine always look like an icing bomb went off!

I actually have to close 1 day a week to resort myself out..lol

Katie-Bug Posted 22 Dec 2006 , 6:26pm

I was in the middle of cleaning and working on this weekends orders, but I want to share my photos. Here is my kitchen, starting to the left of the door. I have lots of stuff and I have tried to make the most of storage.

I hope this link works!!

littlecake Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 5:33am

wow!...it really is amazing how much stuff you can fit into a space....

i really need to be so organised...usually after a busy saturday it looks like a bomb went off at my place.

SweetConfectionsChef Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 2:13pm

Okay, I think I have it...try this link!

SweetConfectionsChef Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 2:15pm

I guess it's going to actually post the pic?????
Anyway, I don't have actual pics of the kitchen but you can see a little over the counter. We are remodeling the kitchen after the 26th so I will put up some pics then of the before and after. Somebody remind me so I don't forget! icon_redface.gif

littlecake Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 2:37pm

i love it! your place looks so welcoming!

so you sell other gift items too?

i was just thinking this morning, after i get my remodel done i might put some gifts in there too...

do they sell ?

Laura102777 Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 2:51pm

SweetConfectionsChef.. thumbs_up.gif ...That is such a charming little shop!! I love it!!! It gives me inspiration for the place I'd like to open someday. icon_smile.gif

RisqueBusiness Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 3:12pm

Sweet Confections, I just adore your little shop! it's so neat!

Tell me, do you have any help or is it all just you!?? I find that I'm all over the shop and when 9/10 o'clock at night comes along I'm so exhausted that I can't even begin to clean up..

I straighten up and come early in the am ..an hour before I open and clean then!

BUT I need a space expert to maximize my area!!! waaaaaaaaah...!!

My rent is so high I can't invest in cute little containers to keep my stuff organized!! and another shelving unit doesn't fit in my shop and the walls are so funky that I'd have to remortar them if I nail anything!!

and I 'm sooooooooooooooo Jealous of the bright and airy feel to your shop....I'm in a basement and it...FEELS and LOOK like one!

double whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! lol

SweetConfectionsChef Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 6:56pm

You guys are great! Thanks for your wonderful comments! I have 2 employees. One works only events and the other 2 days a week, mostly to clean. I have lost my voice (literally) so she is there tending to the Christmas rush while I nurse myself back to health! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Merry Christmas everyone!!! -Michelle

Is your shop in the basement? Just guessing from the block walls in the pics. I would love to have a space like that, but the thought never ever occurred to me to transform my dungeon into a kitchen. Everything looks so orderly! I am so jealous! I will be keeping this thread and using lots of these ideas someday--hopefully soon!

Thanks for sharing everyone! There are really some great ideas here!

RisqueBusiness Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 7:10pm

Michelle..take care of yourself!!

RisqueBusiness Posted 23 Dec 2006 , 7:16pm

I want Santa to bring me Plastic Clear Shoe boxes! That's all!!

Oh ..and Funky plates from the Dollar store..

oh ..and A millionare hubby!! hahaha!

a nice deliver van would be good too..

and..and...more space..with as store front...

better yet..a stand alone building with my name on the mortgage...!!

Not to much to ask for I hope!!

mypastrychef Posted 27 Dec 2006 , 4:00am

I took photos of the front of my shop and the front customer area.
We are on the side the main road is to the left. The interstate is like 4 small blocks away.

I am standing in the front door and I start pics from the left and go to the right. We have two suites and it was offices.

I just realized your pics were linked to this page. Your kitchen seems so well organized. I have so much stuff in my kitchen... the whole building.

I assume it is attached to your home in some way? Do you allow customers in your kitchen?
We try to keep them out. My husband generally takes care of that! haha
