Hi and welcome to the first post of what I hope will turn out to be a fabulous blog!
Introductions first. My name is Tabitha. I'm a stay-at-home-mom of one remarkable little girl named Zara. I love to bake, to craft, to paint, to make jewelry, and am learning to sew. I have a tremendous love of reading, which tends to add up on my credit card. Whatever. I'm coming up on my eighth wedding anniversary. Seán, my husband, is the love of my life and a seriously talented writer. Let's hope he'll agree to guest blog at some point. Seán, Zara, our three cats and I live in a tiny town in West Virginia. You've never heard of it. lol
The name Happy Cake came to be because of Zara. She turned two this year and because there are so many birthdays going on around her birthday, she picked up the words "birthday" and "cake" pretty quickly. She then combined "Happy Birthday" and "birthday cake" into "Happy Cake". Makes sense to her. I love the way her mind works. She now has my niece saying happy cake. Love that! She's a genius. What can I say? lol
In the future, you can expect to see some crafts I've made, some jewelry, and, yes, some cakes I know I'll be decorating. I just finished a Wilton cake decorating class and am excited to show my newly-learned skills. We're also gearing up for Halloween around here and are planning a party, so expect tons of spooky ideas.
Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope to see you back soon!
