Okay, I've been meaning to ask this for a while but keep forgeting to create a post. Did I miss something? I know she had a huge project coming up some time last year, but it's quite unusual for her to stay away for so long. Any updates?

Maybe she has just gotten sick of CC? I am about there myself, is why it occurred to me... I will normally troll CC all hours, but it has become so uninteresting that I have been on Ebay all night. And have spend WAY too much...

Send her a PM to say hi!  I was just thinking about her too - I think she got hella busy I think putting together a national wholesale thing as well as opening a retail store.

I KNOW!!! It is a sickness! I live, eat, breath and dream cake! it is terrible, after 25 years of it, I am more obsessed each year!icon_cry.gif I am going to have to register as a non-profit, lol, since I put it all back into product! That stuff was so cheap, I couldn't pass it up, in total, It was just over $200, but don't tell my DH! I had all my receipts and email confirmations, he has no idea he is almost single handedly supporting the 6 of us, while I buy toys, lol icon_biggrin.gif

I sent her an email through her business website since I live down the road from her, but she has not responded.  Her shop was due to open on November 1st.  I have her contact info-I might give her a call if I don't hear anything in the next few weeks.

I sent Susan a PM in mid-November, when I realized she hadn't been on CC for quite a while. In January I sent her a New Year's greeting. She never answered, which is unusual. I hope Annie can find out if Susan's okay.

Wow, a lot of cake toys! It is truly an addiction and I must confess, I am waaaaay over my head. I have a spare room dedicated to caking and have hung a full-length peg board on a closet door. I find it is so weighted down with bags of cutters and veiners that I fear it just might spring the hinges! And forget about the work tables, refrigerator, cabinets and various storage bins...

 

I'm not accountable to anyone else for what I spend, but I am my own worst enemy. Hmmmm, I think I just might check out Ebay. Gotta sacrifice another room!

 

It is a little worrisome when you feel you get to know someone here and then notice a lengthy absence. I do hope we hear from Susan soon. But like Anna, I find I don't spend nearly as much time on CC since the format change. And I really don't see much sense in posting pictures like I used to. But, that's another subject.

 

I'm waiting to see what happens.

Annie please do. It's so unlike her to just disappear, and I feel like if she would, she still had some friends she would at least say good bye to.

There was an article in the Icing Smiles newsletter about a new director - - I don't know scp1127, but I thought it was she.  If that's true, she's probably too busy to wipe her own nose.

Called her bakery during business hours 2 days ago, and got the voicemail. Oh well, I hope some day she comes back to let us know that all is well.

What happened to everybody? Indy Debby, and Texas Rose, and Texas Sugar, and Blakes Cakes, Tonedna, Linda, Summer, and all of them? all members who have made thousands of posts, then drop off the face of the (cakecentral) world. Could it be the rest of us oldies are more obsessed, with cake? Or something else? I have been a daily lurker to active member for 5 years, and there is no slowing me down! Do I need a life?

I am waiting for a sale, or coupon code! I just figured i would get the top of the line model, I never pay full price for anything ;-) I had a 30% off coupon for one over $100, but it expired. Just waiting for the next one!

LOL that looks like when I get an order from CK.  They have that $150 minimum so I always buy a ton of stuff all at one time.  LOL

AThere wasn't more than 2 items for any one vendor, so it is trickling in a bit every day, lol.

Jen, did you straighten out how to order from CK without extra charges on your card? I want to order so bad!

AI tried to contact her through her business website but I didn't get a reply, but it seemed like there was a glitch in the website because I got a strange message when I submitted it. I have her phone number but I thought it would be strange to call her since we've never met in person. Do you think I should try to call?

Go for it! Worst thing that could happen is she calls the police for stalking ;-) just kidding. She can always hang up, it's not like you're ringing her door bell, just her phone.

Do go ahead and call her. Over the last couple of years I have formed the closest friendships with some I've met here on CC. One would never know we've never met in person and I consider them among my dearest lifelong friends. You have nothing to lose and it just might mean as much to her to know that someone cares enough to inquire.

AYep, I called her business number from her website when this thread was still 'fresh,' the phone just rang and rang. Anybody else tried?

Strange.  Yeah I live about 20 minutes away from her.  Maybe I will try to call her.  She told me a while back where she was putting her new business, but I deleted that PM so I can't do a Google search and find out where it is.  I'm not sure if the number she gave me is her home or business number.  I know her business is built on to her house.

Ok guys I just called but didn't get an answer.  I sent her another email through her business website.  It actually said on the site that emails have been repaired and it said my email was sent successfully.  Hopefully I will hear something soon!
