So i'm super excited for something new coming to The Burnt Daisy and that is...
Cake Toppers!
I have been thinking about doing it for a while because monograms are so in style right now and I got confirmation tonight that I should definately do it.
So let me explain. They come in 2 different sizes, 4" and 6" and they are made to stick right into the top of the cake. You can get it for your wedding cake and do your initial of the married name or even both first names, or all 3! I think it would be cute if you did his and her initials in 4" and then in between those do a 6" of your married last name! I can visualize it and it's cute. Or any other event that has a cake, such as showers or birthdays etc. So trust me. These aren't going to be like my normal letters. They are going to be beautiful and super nice! I can decorate them in rhinestones, pearls, crystals or anything to match your decor. I ordered one to show you as a sample so hopefully I can show you that soon so you can get an idea of them. I'm even going to add fancier fonts for them so watch for those to come! All the other details as in prices etc I still have to figure out but if you are interested we can talk right away, just send me an e-mail and i'll hook ya up!

Also this weekend is the last weekend to get you Christmas orders in!! Sunday night is the cut off. I am so excited with how busy i've been with orders. They have been taking a little longer than normal with these girls of mine deciding to be a little more high maintenance than usual. But i've got a game plan ready to go so I can dedicate designated time to them. I have lots to show you!

I have the giveaway almost completed and I am loving it! I think i'm going to use the same design on mine that I ordered for my house. I'm just waiting for Halloween to be over then i'll put it up. So i'm guessing Sunday night. So Sunday is a big day, so check back here!
I'll leave you with a picture. I forgot to add this home decor initial to my photos but it was a favorite at the craft show and is really cute in person.

So that's all my friends, i'm excited! Love this stuff.

More names!

I finally got these all finished at the same time.
These first 3 are for a friend of mine. She picked out the paper and wanted them to share a room so I made them each a little different. She has the cutest little girls, and Violet is their new baby girl. Congrats Elysa she is adorable just like the rest!

This one matches a jungle themed room.

I had to take this picture inside at 6am, so it's not the best but I like this name.

This Boo is my sisters. She designed it and I love it. I think I need to hire her! I also think i'm going to keep it for myself. Good job Britt!

Kourtney was a mix between some other papers I have used that she loved plus a few more, there is a big flower for the K, that will go on it when it gets here.
These next two are for a relative of mine. Levi has a sports themed room in these colors, and Kimmi is pink and brown with some other pastal colors in the bedding. Hope she loves them!
And this one is mine, I wanted something simple for my small house and it's perfect.

A few reminders. The deadline for Christmas orders is the 31st of October so please don't forget to get your orders in!
The giveaway is coming soon! I'm so excited and it's super cute! So watch for that and tell your friends! ;)

I lied and Gift certificates!

I was going through my bin from the craft show (I know i'm a procrastinator) to get out my girls names to put them back up and I found something. This Boo that I forgot about that never sold. It's actually the exact one my friend ordered but I ran out of paper for the 'B' for hers. So this one will go to her and the one I have left, the 'B' is the same black but a little different pattern on it, thats it. So it's ready to ship for whoever wants it!! It's $30 and super cute! E-mail me at mindyfrancis[at] to get it! I'm even going to the post office today! So hurry up!

How about them gift certificates??
I have them!! Now you don't have to worry about ordering for someone, you can just give them a gift certificate for the amount of what you are wanting to get them, or even a set amount for them to have off when they do order. Just e-mail me and I have them here, I can mail them to you so you can give them as Christmas gifts, or we can do an online transaction.
Either way, these are GREAT gifts! So let me know!
Also don't forget the cutoff for Christmas orders is October 31st, other than gift certificates. So get those in!

Deadlines for Christmas

If you are wanting something for Christmas as a gift you need to have it ordered by October 31st and If you are wanting anything for Christmas home decor, the sooner the better obviously. There isn't a deadline on that but i'm assuming you'll want it up by December 1st, which is when I decorate so I assume everyone is like me!

These will make awesome gifts for anyone! Kids, home, babies, or yourself! If you need ideas on words I have lots! Just e-mail me and i'll help ya out.
I can now do the smaller sizes I told you about before. Which come in 4" and 6" which I think is perfect for Christmas home decor. The prices for those are, 4"-$8/letter and 6"-$10/letter. Remember that anything over 7 letters is 10% off before shipping and embellishments.

I am waiting on some super cute Christmas decor for myself and the GIVEAWAY! Who is excited?? me!
Please, please don't wait to get your order in!! Remember shipping is slower at Christmas time so hurry up eh!
