More On This New Venture

I added more flowers to the tote. :)

And I'm branching out. I love making these flowers, and I'm realizing that I can attach them to pretty much anything. So today, I added one to a plain headband I had.

I think I've just found something that I'm good at. I am definitely having fun creating these things. :)

This Is What Happens When I Get Creative....

I am a poor college student...which sucks, because fall is coming, and I want to update my wardrobe. So, I've been reading DIY blogs the past few days. Now, I've always been into that kind of thing, and these blogs have definitely gotten my creative juices flowing. So, I sat down last night and created something that I'm really proud of. :)

This is a cute little tote bag that I made from a tank top and embellished with some scrap fabric and some ribbon. I got the idea for the bag from Maegan, and the flower was made following the directions from Little Lizard King, and both sites are fabulous. :) This was ridiculously easy to make, and it's a cute way to reuse old tank tops.

I'm seriously going to be making more of these. And I can't wait to see what else I can find to create.

Pure Bliss

I have discovered my new favorite bakery.

Now, I like bakeries. I think they are wonderful places, full of amazing foods (which ruin my diet completely....but oh well. :p). However, I've never really found one that I keep going back to any chance I get. Until this summer. That's when I discovered this bakery called Bliss. I've been three times so far, and I've introduced this place to my boyfriend, his niece, my best friend from Berry, and my parents. And they all love the place, too. :)

Bliss is a small little bakery. They serve truffles, butter bars, and chocolate covered Oreos. However, it's their cupcakes that keep me coming back. They only have three that they serve all the time, but they always feature a new flavor every week. The three flavors they keep all the time are Key Lime, Butter Caramel, and Chocolate Bliss. All three are amazing.

I've tried two of their featured cupcakes--Rocky Road and Strawberry Margarita. I am a lover of Rocky Road, and therefore, I can be picky about it. But that cupcake went beyond my expectations. It had everything that makes Rocky Road so good--including the marshmallows! And the Strawberry Margarita cupcake was the perfect ending to what had been a somewhat stressful day.
Bliss does more than just sell delicious baked goods. They also sell little gifts and cake decorating supplies, and they hold classes/demonstrations. I haven't been to a class yet, but I'm planning on going soon. They also do wedding cakes. So, if you're getting married or know someone who is, check this place out! :)

They have reasonable prices (each cupcake costs about $1.80), which is great. However, if you plan on buying just one or two, take cash. They only accept debit and credit cards with orders over $5.

The place is decorated really cute. They have several tables, and a bar at the window. It's really cool to sit at the little bar and look out at the beautiful square.

Parking can be an issue, but that's mainly because it's on the square. Just look around, and try some parking lots behind buildings if you don't want to deal with parking meters or parking on the square.

Check out their website here. They are located right on the square in downtown McDonough.
And yes, I have a picture for you! :)

Key Lime & Rocky Road cupcakes. :)
