I have been scanning messages but haven't replied in ages. My husband got into selling ebay and I became his helper.
He is now selling some of my brand new cake pan sets and my Harley shirts too. Yes, I'm letting him. I don't think I will ever bake anything that big and I'm sort of losing a little interest already. How come?????
Do any of you go back and forth with hobbies?
I haven't baked a cake since December. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!
Sorry to see that the forum has had difficulty but glad it is up and running again.
Yes, I have also been on the fringe of cake decorating from time to time. Taking classes has helped me regain the passion that I thought I was losing for a while, especially when it involves making gumpaste flowers.
Then, there is the wedding brooms and accessories I was making. It has been tradition in my family that I make all of the decorations, flowers, and headpieces for my family weddings. We had a string of weddings for about 2 years, and they all also wanted the jumping brooms that are used in some African-American weddings. Well, I bought some extra stuff, made a few extra brooms and candle holders, sold them, then got tired of doing them. They sold slowly, because I could not afford a website to work from. Perhaps after I move into a bigger place....
Will you post your dh's seller id name so we can bid on some of your pans.
Or post the links to the pans.
What do you mean "packing up the apartment"? Where you going?
I had thoughts of taking classes but gas, cost of class and supplies I changed my mind. The class is over an hour away.
You sure are keeping busy.
I didn't put the seller id or link as I don't think we are suppose to do that here but you can email me with the email button below or PM me.
I'm not going far, just in the process of buying a house. And boy, I can't wait to move! It will be nice to have a home of my own again. I lost mine to foreclosure when I took ill, 6 years ago.
So, I'm packing up the apartment so I'm ready to go as of closing day.
As far as classes, you can always try a Nick Lodge DVD, and see if that gets you going again. I think they cost about $20 plus shipping, each.
How far north are you in NY? Closer to Poughkeepsie, or Lake George, or the Great Lakes area?
Well, have fun in your new home. How wonderful.
I have a few of those Bake/Decorate/Celebrate DVD's and they help. I'll have to look into the Nick Lodge one.
I'm an hour north of Watertown. Ever hear of it???? Two hours north of Syracuse. I'm WAY UP THERE.
Yeah, I guess you are way up there.
I was going to suggest that you go to Poughkeepsie for private lessons with Betty Van Norstrand, but given your distance, it would mean overnight travel for you.
If you ever decide to take the drive, I have her contact information. Just me a PM and I will send it to you.
Thanks but like you said "it would be way to far" for Betty's Private Lessons. That is like almost the bottom of the state. Six or seven hours.
Well, gotta go dry my hair and go visit my Dad.
Nice chatting with you,
Sorry about the duplicates.
