A change was definitely in the air...i could feel it, and as soon as 2010 hit i knew it had to happen. It's been on my mind for a while now.
This year I'm headed down a new career path, I'm so excited i cant tell you how much!
With a new career came a decision that in the end wasn't so tough, i knew it was the right thing to do.
The decision was to close my Website down.
Yep, after 2 years, im saying farewell to Paint Mine Pink, Art By Shannon Thompson.
I will be sad BUT the excitement for my new journey kinda overpowers the sadness.
You see, ive been making faux cupcakes and cakes for well over 4 years now......and the last few months i have been really loving the cake creating so much that i finally woke up one day and thought 'You know what, you should make REAL cakes, wedding cakes, all occasion cakes, YOU WILL BE AWESOME at it'.
So i am doing it....and for me, to feel confident like that, it's big thing !
I start my Cake Decorating tafe course in early February and im soooo looking forward to it. I have also bought a few books on techniques and baking and will be 'self teaching' alot at home.
I even have my first order....a valentines day cake. I'm bursting at the seams to get started.
I'm excited about learning this year, and while i wont be making items for my website anymore, i will still be selling on Ebay, mostly my paintings/painted items.
I just felt that with this new beginning i would not have the time to maintain and stock my website.
I know in my heart it's the right decision because seriously you just cant wipe the smile off my face right now. I feel like i finally have all my ducks in a row.
I will be starting a NEW BLOG for anyone who wants to read about my 'caking journey' and I'll be sharing lots of photos of my learning process, not just the good parts either ! LOL.
So that is my news.
Very soon i will introduce you all to my new blog and my new business name....
Wish me luck!
Till next time...I'll be in the kitchen mixing sugarpaste and loving every moment of it!
Love Shann xx MWAH.
