Something Awesome This Way Comes

Oie, it's been two weeks since I last wrote.  I'm off to a horrible start in keeping up with my blog this year.  However, I'm going to give myself a bit of a break.  We've had a lot going on around here lately!  I can't spill all of the secrets yet, but let's just say there are a lot of things in development here at Casa de Cady.

Over the past few weeks, Eliot and I have been busy making a business plan for a new line of products that we're collaborating on.  There's been a lot of number crunching and product development taking place.  It's definitely taken up a chunk of our "free" time.  It's an awesome idea though.  It's totally going to be worth all of the hard work!

In Happily Ever Hatter news... I've been working on a few custom orders (stay tuned for photos) as well as continuing progress with making new designs.  I have enough fabric and materials for about 15-20 designs that I haven't even started yet.  I also have a few half finished projects waiting patiently for their turn to be finalized.  I'm going to be very busy with those in the near future.

Eliot's been busy with his Snowblade Creations shop.  He's been working on a few soap orders for customers.  In his spare time, he's been busy trading Vinylmations with people on Facebook.  We have quite the collection of them growing in our living room! Apparently, he's even inquired about having a custom one made for me.  I have no idea what it'll be... I'm sure I'll be pleasantly surprised!  In the meantime, my little Vinylmation collection is chilling out on my desk.

We had a pretty quiet Easter.  The Easter Bunny spoiled us with lots of Frozen goodies.  We had two happy little donkeys with bunny ears and new outfits.  (We really need a frequent flyer card at Build-A-Bear...)  Eliot and I met up with my Mom, Nana and Jeremy for a Easter lunch at one of the local restaurants.

Winter is finally transitioning to spring here in Maine!  It's so nice to have the snow melted!  We had one of Eliot's Vinylmation friends pick us up a few items from Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival since we aren't going this year.  We both fell in love with the Olaf garden statue.  I wanted to add Duffy to my collection and I couldn't say no to the Frozen Fever MagicBand.  (It's gorgeous!!!)  The guy was really nice and even sent us a free Flower and Garden Festival magnet!

Last weekend, we met up with Mom's family for my baby cousin Nadia's first birthday party!  Eliot and I got her a really cute Minnie Mouse shirt and little socks!  It was fun to see my cousins and to visit with them.  I'm so thankful that we're able to get together with them after these rough few months.

Finally, super sleuths might start to figure out what I've been up to by looking at my social media pages.  (That's the only hint you're getting!)  I've been busy with a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff laying the ground work for new things in store!  Blog followers will be happy to know I've also been preparing for more crafts and tutorials!  I feel like I've been at the craft stores as much as I've been home these past few weeks!  I love creating things and I've got quite the list of ideas.  So... I might not have been around here as often as planned, but it's because of all good things.  Promise.  °o°
