it's really going to happen

Finding out yesterday that I may no longer be working on Monday's was the kick in the rear end I needed.
It has motivated me.
It got the ball rolling.
and in a few weeks 'Emie Jane's Baby Cakes' will be up and running.
I placed an Etsy Alchemy request this afternoon for someone to design a logo for me and the offers have been coming in nonstop.
It's crazy.
Some lovely individuals have already even drawn mockups for me.
Crazy how talented people are.

Pixel Perfect Designs sent over this one...

Cute, huh?
(I originally was going with Maggie Jane's, but have since decided to go with Emie Jane's)

I haven't quite decided which direction I want to go...cute, whimsical, vintage?
But regardless I'm going to keep it a surprise.

Once the logo is done I'll be ordering custom labels, tags, business cards, etc.
To tell you that I'm excited would be a huge understatement.

I truly love to bake.
To actually make some extra money doing something I love will just be the icing on the cupcake! ;)
If I didn't think fiance and I would become obese I'd bake every single day just for the heck of it.
It makes me happy.
It's therapeutic.
It's a wonderful way to be creative.

I promise to share with you more details as this fun and exciting endeavor progresses.

***Thanks to my wonderful mommy, Jane, for coming up with the name 'Baby Cakes'.
It's Perfect!

***And thanks to my fiance for being so supportive.
Sometimes it takes you believing in me before I start to believe in myself.
You're a pretty freakin' special guy!

Love you all!
