Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.
I've got a new hobby....making cake pop boxes for a very talent baker in California named Misty. She runs a little business baking her delicious cake pops and from time to time she has special orders that require special containers. That's where I come in. The box I designed for her and mailed today is a "Grunge" style box using Stampotique rubber stamps that are comical. The color scheme is red, black and white. The customer likes skulls and so those are of course scattered through out. It was really fun and I think it turned out very cool. I threw in a gift card that matches the box theme. Hope she likes it! I liked it so much I posted it on the Stampotique site for their "Shimmer, Glimmer, Glitter & Glitz" Challenge (it really does have a lot of gold, Glimmer Mist and bling on it even if my photography doesn't show it). : D
