Hi..I was just at McCalls on the weekend. I purchased a membership. Its 25.00. They have a really good selection of everything. I just need to go when I don't have my 4yr old with me..
Just a question... are any of you on "facebook?" Maybe we could start a group where we can post pics of our cakes etc... Just an idea.
I'm on Facebook! I have pics of my cakes posted in an album within my profile on that site. A group would be great!
I am the same! I post all my pics on my facebook album and would LOVE to share them with through a facebook group. Let's see how many people are interested!
I too post on face book. Woould luv to start a group.
Lets think of a good name for our group! Any ideas???
I'm on facebook too! I've love to join a group .
I too have a Facebook album dedicated only to my cakes . I would love to join a group .... to talk about all the cakes and adventures we had making them .
My daughter is hosting some of the cheerleaders from Ontario in a couple of weeks. They are called the PCG Vipers. Any of you ladies associated with them? It would be cool if I hosted one of your children.
I'm in!!!!!!......Hmm,now a name......
"Cake Diva's of Ontario"
"The Cake Gal's (Girlz?)"
"Have you cake and bake it too!"
Let's hear your's................somebody stop me...LOL
what about for the love of cake? Do you think we should keep it to those in our thread? and just for us good ol' Canadians eh?
I like "Have you cake and bake it too!" its a catchy little saying.
seems like you have alot of good ideas Nancy!
Great idea, I too post my cakes on facebook and would love to have our own Canadian group! I would like our name to be something about caking in canada but I am not too creative with words!!! Whatever you think!!
Count me in
I'd like it to be something "Canada specific" too. I don't want to ruffle any feathers, but I will just throw this out there ... this thread is about Ontario in particular. There are lots of people on this site from Ontario. The same may be true of Facebook?? Would anyone want to narrow the group to just Ontario?? It doesn't fuss me one way or the other - Canada as a whole is great idea for a group - but this thread was an appeal to Ontario folks specifically. Is that too narrow?
I'm in with the facebook idea,whatever everyone chooses is fine with me!
Tracey1970-you've got some good points.
My mind is a running on this one......All I can picture in my head is a Canadian flag without the red maple leaf and instead a cupcake cake put there...LOLLOL
kels_bells- I saw those last year and was so tempted,but I didn't. I LOVE Homesense. They have great cakestands/pedstals for every season and geez I want them all! I see they have my favourite sticker on them RED ones!!!!..lol Lucky you! There gorgeous!
I love the facebook idea too. I did belong to a cake group over there, but for some reason I can't post any more pics - they have over 2000 posted, but the 'chat' area is not very active. There are dozens of cake groups there, so I suggest we make this just an Ontario or Canadian group.
Like this Nancy?
Martha you took the thought right outta my head!!!!
That is so COOL! You rock!
How'd you do that?
That's awesome Martha! You have way more computer skill than I do (which is not hard to do)! Let me know how to join the group.
I created this in Microsoft Digital Image Suite - simple, simple, simple. Changes are no problem
Okay, let's talk about names. I also love Cake Girlz - that might even be better (less presumptuous! LOL.
Let's get some feedback and then I"ll go ahead and set up the group later today. This will be fun!
Martha.... I LOVE that idea! Looks great! I'm in.
Should we do a poll for the name?
CANADIAN CAKE GIRLZ ROCK!!!
My vote is for Cake Girlz of Ontario or Ontario Cake Girlz. Personally, I'd like to see it focused on Ontario because we can trade supplier info, pricing, perhaps have a get together, etc.
Another option is an Aimoo group or something that is more private than Facebook and where you don't have to use your real name (just in case anyone is concerned about that).
I belong to a couple of Aimoo groups and they are quite easy to set up and to navigate.
Your thoughts everyone?
I won't set this group up until tomorrow so we can gather some feedback.
sorry double post
I'm in Markham, East of Toronto. This is a great thread and I haven't even been all of the way through it.
It would be fun to meet up somewhere...
Please count me in.
That looks great Martha!
I don't have a problem with doing it on facebook, as far as I know you can join a group without letting everyone in the group see your whole profile. Only those who you add as friends can see your peronal stuff!
