That's good news, W. I am glad that things are levelling out for you. It's amazing how timing works sometimes, isn't it?
I have 3 cakes on the horizon; 2 of them with my former boss. She has asked me to give her a per cake price, rather than an hourly rate, because she needs to compare apples to apples, if she gets a per cake price from someone else. So I agreed to that, and I'm quite sure that I can offer a better price than anyone, since I have no overhead.
The 3rd wedding cake is a private job, and I am meeting the bride tomorrow. I don't know what she wants yet, and I don't know where I'll be making it, but if she wants me to do her cake, I will say yes, and figure everything out. I'm sure things will fall into place. Necessity is the mother of invention, right?
I have asked my brother to design business cards for me, and it's something so specialized that I can't really take it to a local printer, but he's in the midst of buying a house, so I really have to wait. But I still don't have cards, and it really would help.
In the meantime, I have vowed to take August off, and just relax. My way of relaxing has been to paint every room in the house, and build a patio. I shovelled tons upon tons of gravel last week. Really relaxing...NOT.
Like you, I really feel that I have made the right decision. :)
