I am just stopping by the share with you a little project that I worked on last night. After another busy day in work, and after a mountain of paperwork, I found myself looking at the bottle of wine that I am giving away this weekend..... I didn't drink it though! I decorated it!!!
I wanted to make it a little special, and after seeing this little wine bottle tag here on Nichole Heady's blog, I wanted to make one too!! I simplified it somewhat, and it was done in less than five minutes. It used scraps of paper, the negative image form the bottle neck hole, and a 'thanks' stamp from PTI. That it!! (Sorry for the poor image here, the colour doesn't quite pop on the photograph as it does in real life!)
I think if I made one again, I would make it slightly narrower, but I am really happy that it was so quick to make.
More good news to report from work today ... after selling my three Victoria sponges at the beginning of the week, I sold all six that I made today!! I was so happy!! I was so pleased with them - it is a little odd to be using equipment that I am not familiar with, and the fact that i didn't burn them, or take them out too early is a really big deal!!
My next baking work adventure will be next week where I will be making scones as requested by a customer today, and coffee cupcakes! HHhmmmm. Cupcakes!!
I'll be back over the weekend to share the party news, the giveaway cakes arrive tomorrow, so it has come around quickly, but I am hopeful for a fun evening.
Happy weekend all X
