To my loyal reader(s):
It gives me great pleasure to share the following pictures with you directly from our upcoming collection which WILL be revealed (if you can stand it) NEXT WEEK!!! (...or so I hope.)
Our lovely models (top to bottom) are the striking Mrs. Kim Jaxn, the stunning miss Lauren Merrill (soon to be Mrs. Osmond) and of course I could never go with out the breath taking Miss Sierra Skousen. *cue choir singing "ahhhhhhhhh"* And the photography is by Sierra Studios Photography!
Aside from the sheer excitement of starting a new collection I am also excited to announce some new additives to our new collection that I KNOW you will all be at high risk of going pee pee in your panties over (don't be ashamed if you do).
1. NEW 3mm glossy enamel black metal headbands
2. Shiny NEW 3mm silver plated headbands
3. Each applique now comes STANDARD with a single prong rounded alligator pinch clip.
What does this mean?!!!?? Well for one who doesn't love a lot of GLOSSY? I just like to say that a lot. Glossy Glossy Glossy. Deal with it. Another thing, options! Do I go with the black or the silver??? Can't decide.... but I love the OPTIONS! Ok, finally let's have a moment of silence for the pinch clip......... *small tear* Now lets give a unanimous happy dance (shakin' it, movin it! happy happy HAPPY!) Now let's envision ourselves clipping those desirable appliques all up in a fancy updo, now on the collar of our cardigan, now on our purse, now on our diaper bag, now on our husband's suit jacket or or OR oR!!!! *reboot brain, mine just crashed*
Do I need to expand on all this or are we all to the breaking point? Have you finished rebooting yet because there is a little something else I have to add. On the verge of creating and designing this new collection I was overcome by the spirit of newness and all things that are new and changed and all that, so I thought..... (slow thinker.... sorry gonna have to wait a second longer....) I thought! "Why not vamp up the entire Whippy Cake brand?" You know, simplify, grow up a little. So that's what I did! So not only will we be revealing a new collection but also a new brand entirely and what better accessory to go with my new logo than an updated website to go with? Squeeeak! So bring your paper bag in case of hyperventilation because it's all gonna be ridonkulous and stuff. There is even more but I can't share everything at once or there won't be more exciting stuff to share later like the fact that we will be giving away a Flip UltraHD Camera as well. Ooops! It slipped ;)
Not another word about it till I have confirmation of the exact date and time. Zip!

We wanted to say Thank You to a new friend...
Her name is Suzi. A year or so ago, She, her Husband, and some friends were having a discussion about the frustrating state of the economy, and how dismal things were financially..
At the same time they couldn't help but notice, that even though the Job and Housing markets were down, they were still immensely blessed. That day U2rblessed was born. Since that time, they have created wearable art reflecting that positive attitude, helping others remember what is truly important.
Suzi met Becki at the Believe Boutique in November, and then the next time we heard from her was when we did our story on baby Emmett , she wrote us a sweet email offering to make personalized jewelry and T-shirts for his whole Family. Then when we posted about doing our "Glam for a Day" project, she again wrote us offering to donate to Rachel's Family. Not too long after that, I was on the phone with her and I mentioned how hard it had been to just pick one deserving Lady, that we had several amazing Women nominated... She immediately offered to make necklaces for everyone.:) WOW!
As you saw in our "Glam for a Day" post, she wasn't the only generous soul who came forward bearing gifts, we were blessed with lot's of LOVE and service from many of you...
We just really believe in what U2rblessed represents, and wanted to shine a light on that good:)...
We hope that we will all choose to focus the blessings in our lives.....

We had our own little mini Christmas where we were able to shower Rachel with gifts from YOU! We were blown away and Rachel was moved to tears by the gifts that seem to keep on flowing.
We really want to thank all of those who contributed to this special little Christmas party including:
Adorn Style Lounge
Sweet Cakes Cafe
Kathy Scoffeild Photography
Chateau Couture Decor
We knew we were asking quite a bit of everyone just a week before Christmas and we were so touched by how willing they were to go out of their way to give even during the busy season. Thank you, we know how much time it cost you and it didn't go unnoticed.
Thank you again to everybody who helped us pull this off! I can't stress how much we truly appreciate all those who contributed and especially how thankful we are to your continued prayers. You made it a a delicious day and the best part was that we made a new friend for life!

Asher's little brother Paxon was born on Christmas day, a miracle of it's own. We will be sharing more about Paxon later as well as how we got to know the family but today we really felt like was important to focus on this video and the message.
