I don't know why having a full time job makes me super productive, I guess because I feel like I have less time to do everything I want to do. I have been making these hair bow bobby pins like crazy and I am in love with how little and delicate they are. I am mostly making them for a wholesale order, but will be putting some in my shop.
(Or, if you want some, you can email me amount and color and I can do a custom order. I have just about every color leather/suede.)
Anyways, I love wearing little bitties in my hair, and these bows are pretty perfect! And they keep my fingers busy. (My house is still a mess though, but honestly, who cares!)
So, today, my second day in the bakery, was part a success and part a nervous wreck. I went into it feeling really nervous again and kind of frustrated. I feel like starting anew job makes you question your abilities and feel like a newbie at stuff you have been doing for years. For example, I have been decorating cakes for a long time. I think I'm pretty capable of basic decorating techniques, but with the other lady staring at me and pulling tool out of my hand (thanks, I already have a Mom...) I get super frustrated. The thing is, I am replacing someone who has been a pastry chef for 25+ years. I have been alive only 25+ years. I am not, and will not be, the last guy. I know he taught her everything she knows, but there is a reason they hired someone new and young. They hired me because of stuff like this:
And YES, I know I need to bring my good camera to work and not my shitty cell phone camera. But seriously, How freaking cute. I love little miniatures, and these chocolate covered strawberry miniature bride and groom make me so happy. I sent this photo to Dougie while we were both at work. I hope he didn't get the wrong idea...right idea...wrong idea. haha!
I'm going to get my fingers busy again while my boy is out skateboarding!!
