More About Good Things Utah

Okay, so I have been meaning to write more about the last couple of weeks while I was in Utah. But as I mentioned in my last post, my roof caved in while I was away. And the only thing it damaged was my computer! Luckily, the hard drive was perfectly fine so I got a new computer (my husband bought it for me - yay!) and just transferred everything over. Bad deal, but at least I got a new computer to replace the one I've been wanting to replace for a year.

I wanted to share some pictures at the actual set of Good Things Utah and then some of my Dear Lizzie open house. Enjoy!
This is my FAVORITE dessert EVER! My mom and I designed it together. Did I ever tell you she's my secret weapon? That woman is amazingly creative! She doesn't understand why I have to "bake" all the time when we're together, but I can tell you it's because I just love her creative energy! So, without further ado...here's what I call the "Piece de la Resistance". You can't tell very well, but around the bottom there are different quotes about cake. Like "Let them eat cake. --Marie Antoinette". And on the top the pennant says "Have Your Cake and Eat it Too." Then there's just tons of paper that's from an old piano book.

Here's me with my set-up for the craft we're going to make on the show. If you saw the segment (link in post below), you can see that I made the faux tarts with two other ladies. Fun!

I just love the new sugar cookies. Check these out! The top one has the silver balls on top. I think they're called non pareils. And then the pink cake and cupcake tree. Gotta love those!

After the Show

This is a picture of me and my mom (the lady that does it all!) with the hostesses. On the right is Reagan and on the left is Angie. Really nice ladies!

Many of my friend and family came to the show to sit in the studio audience. It made everything so much fun standing in front of all of the people that I love so much!

My mom and her sister.

My in-laws. Love them!

These cute ladies are some old family friends - The Hunts.

My sister, Grandma, me, my sister-in-law. So supportive!

Dear Lizzie Open House

The night before the show, I took some of my products to My Dear Lizzie for my open house immediately following the show. She has a fabulous knack for decorating. I simply love her style! So she set up a display with my products including the sign in the picture below and a her daughter even made me a crown to wear! Doesn't the Piece de la Resistance fit in here perfectly?

One more! This is the banner the shop owner of Scrooge and Marleys made for my open house at her shop. Check this thing out!

I'm so sad I missed you! We were in Cali while you were here... just my luck... otherwise I would have been come to the show or open house. I did watch your show though! I'm so happy for you... you are so creative!

You did great on Good Things Utah. I'm so glad your business is doing so well. If you're interested in more stores in Utah, my aunt and uncle just opened a boutique up in Clinton-if you're interested, you should go check it out and convince them to sell your "goodies"

I absolutely love everything. I just finished reading the article on Make Mine Pink. I have a shop there too!

I just adore your display photos and your faux desserts are beautiful.

Faux desserts in addition to real desserts are a HUGE weakness of mine. I think you will be hearing a lot from me soon.
