It's summer time and things are gooooood..

If you've ever been to PEI, you will know that the summer is amazingly beautiful and you never want to go inside (this makes the crappy winter all worth it). So, I haven't been inside much and the time that I have spent inside I have spent working! Aimee has been over for the last two days helping me out with Etsy stuff! We did a little bit of a training day yesterday, and today she did her thing and I was able to get orders done as well as play lots with Jude which I have missed lately, and work on some chores.

I am finally getting out from under the giant pile of orders I had building up - I love that things are so busy but was struggling to keep up as one person with all the custom and made to order items. Annnnnnnyways.. today Aimee took almost 400 photos with my new camera! I will be slowly tickling items into the shop and onto flickr.. but here are a few previews of what is to come.







You may notice that these photos are seriously AWESOME compared to my old photos, and this can all be credited to my new best friend:



Yay! I finally have a DSLR! This is the most exciting moment I've had in a while! :) Here are a couple photos I took tonight of Jude's first trip to the lake:



It has been so sticky here so we took an impromptu trip out to my mother in law's house and went to the nearby lake. Jude loved it.. and loved being naked in the water hahah.

In Paper*Cakes news - I am slowly adding some vintage items into the shop, and will be adding more accessories as time goes on :) I'm hoping to set up a semi-permanent stall at the flea market here selling cool stuff, vintage/crafts/whatevers so I've been collecting. My sister is law is coming over tomorrow to model two very cool dresses that I found, so watch for those!!









So watch for new things to come in the following days :)
