Su's sweating bullets!

Metaphorically speaking. *grin*
Being stuck in my constant 22 degree celcius work room makes it almost impossible to perspire.
Haha. December really is THE month for all festivities. I've received a record number of cake orders for birthday and events since I've returned from the US. December has been ridiculous! Ridiculously pleasant of course! I guess it's something about the year end season that gets everyone in the mood for celebrating just about anything. I'm so glad I have Em with me to help coordinate phone calls and confirmations... I don't know how else I'd be coping without extra hours from her.
It's been days since I've had more than 5 hours of good sleep.. I wonder when I get the energy to stay awake! Haha I'm often found skipping about the house when we close new deals together and get fun little projects to design. I love it! Well; part of me wishes December would go by quicker, but part of me loves the rare stress I have from quantity! Silly. heeee...
I wish people would call in earlier though.. definitely gives me a little more time to conceptualize a suitable idea.
At this rate; i can definitely see us moving into an office/retail space in less than a year. I don't think our current temporary set up is going to hold up much longer. *laughs* I'm currently working on our Christmas cake elves project and have been doing penguins for days now. There are penguins along my desk; my cake trays; baking sheets, shelves...... Penguins everywhere! Too cute. I'm going to make a penguin 'play-land' *giggle*Speaking of penguins...Thanks heaps to the many who placed orders and showed their support. The closing date was today and the response has been overwhelming. I truly appreciate it guys.. So so awesome..
It's pretty sweet having a blog.
Funny how it's lead me to doing what I love as a career. It's all too exciting!
Alright.. it's 4am; that means it's bedtime for Su.

Hey Su, it's been great following your journey from Sydney to this..the penguins are adorable! I've often wished I could set up a pattiserie or the likes too, but I have to brush up on the baking, by tenfold maybe.. I got a little something for you on my blog. :)
