The Perks of Being Busy

Hello there little blog…it’s been way too long since I last visited you! Sadly the web gremlins (the mean kind, not the fuzzy little gizmo kind) took you away for several months but thankfully our favorite web designer, Joy, was able to bring you back after my pitiful attempts failed.

I have several posts partially finished in the draft folder from before the gremlin attack that I need to sort through since I’m pretty sure it’s too late/too early for Christmas decoration posts.  Hopefully I’ll be back to pseudo-regular updates soon.

In the meantime I leave you with this….

…the single best thing to come from new product photography. Edible props….and no I don’t mean the plate! 🙂

Featured – Occasions Magazine

Hello!  I’ve been struggling to get caught up recently and failing it seems….or at least where my blog is concerned.  It’s been a bit crazy recently with how much my little Etsy shop has picked up.   So, while this post is a bit delayed it’s still quite exciting and a bit surreal.

Earlier this year I was contacted by one of the editors from Occasions Magazine  about creating a set of stirrers in a lovely charcoal gray to be featured in their Winter 2012 Edition.  Occasions is a really great magazine featuring venues & events around the Atlanta area.  My stirrers were included in one of the color features focusing on charcoal.

Obviously it’s surreal to see something you created featured in a magazine but I have to admit it was also  fun to have a reason to peruse a wedding/event planning magazine again!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Life: Halloween & Etsy

Well hello there!  I’ve missed you the past week or so…but things have been busy in the Pickled household.  In the midst of everything I finally managed to get the Dill Pickle Picnic Etsy shop open!  Yay!  Right now it’s looking a bit sparse but I’m hoping to fill it up a bit more over the weekend.  So when you have a minute check it and let me know what you think!

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall in Georgia, and it makes me so happy!  I love fall, it means pumpkins, college football, Halloween, and deep colored clothing.  We will once again attend a Halloween party hosted by a family member and since he has me lead the decorating charge I’ve been checking out all the latest Halloween decorations.  And I found these fun little guys…

Which reminded me quite a bit of these little guys I whipped up for his party last year:

Check out this post from last year to learn how to whip up your own pumpkin lanterns using a few dollar bin items!

What about you guys?  What are you decorating plans for Halloween?  Any fun, yet cheap suggestions to share?
