Inspiration

This month's Blogging Business Artisans team challenge by Erika from ArtfulRising is all about Back to School.  Well, since it's been so long since Mommy has been in school she had no idea what to do for this challenge idea.  I knew she was struggling so I offered to help...
Do you want to know my idea Mommy?
I asked her to remember way, way back when she used to go to school and what did she remember most about back to school time.  She remembered that her birthday was always after the start of the school year.  Well then, knowing that, here's the inspiration I came up for her...
And she made a chocolate cake with sprinkles No-No bracelet...
Hey Bella, this doesn't smell like cake!
It's more like a chocolate snake...
Of course we didn't have chocolate cake for Mommy's birthday since we can only have vanilla but I think I had a pretty darn good idea.  Here's a look at the final bracelet...
We've made the chocolate cake with sprinkles bracelet available in Mommy's shop here.  I'm sure glad I could help her find the inspiration for it!

What do you think of most at Back to School time?

Enjoy your day!
Isabella

That is an awesome bracelet - I think the next one your human makes should be a red velvet cake!

Beautiful work Sharla!

I always used to get excited about going back to school shopping when I was little, now I find myself trying to pay attention to the latest trends, so I can incorporate some of those ideas in jewelry for my shop, but it's hard to do...

Hope your birthday was wonderful and that cake looks yummy too! :)

p.s. Thanks for your kind words on my blog, I'm trying!! :)

That is such a good idea and it does look like a chocolate cake with sprinkles. Isabella, that is such a cute picture of you sitting there with your legs folded under you staring at the bracelet. Take care everyone.
