Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Lollipop Sugar Shoppe Update!!

The time has come dear friends for me to finally share with you what's been going on behind the curtain!

Have you ever had one of those moments where all of a sudden, out of the blue it hits you! The answer you have been waiting for... Should you stay or should you go all finally laid out before you in a very clear, concise way??

I was driving through town the other day when it happened to me. It was like all the puzzle pieces slid right into place.
Lollipops was changing... And I needed to accept that. And I needed to quit forcing something that was not.

Last September with no notice, and no explanation Etsy shut down Lollipops Sugar Shoppe. Just like that... BAM! Everything gone! And those of you who know me know I didn't take it very well. Panic set in. September is the beginning of our busiest time of year! Those holiday orders were what got us through Christmas... I was in knots.
So after months of battling with Etsy, whose only explanation was " there were some suspicious behaviors regarding your account" And our "loaner" kitchen going into a full remodel that would put us out of a kitchen for at least 6 months,
I had to step back and away from my business...
The Facebook page sat empty. My twitter feed resembled a ghost town... And don't get me started about the blog!

  But time can heal all wounds... You know... you have to let it go and if it was meant to be it will come back, or something like that...

After a small, impromptu Facebook "survey", and a little soul searching I have come to realize this:

1. I need to do things that make me happy...
2. Making stuff makes me happy
3. Making $$ making stuff makes me happy.

So, with that said... Lollipops Grand Re Opening will be held in 2 weeks!

I can't explain how satisfied and excited I am!

What will you see from the all new LolliPOP?
Nothing edible, {unfortunately we are still kitchen-less...}

But you will find all edible themed... Everything!!
From faux ( I hate that word btw) cupcakes, to party kits, jewelry, and even some home decor items... LolliPOP will be nothing if not a glitter bombed unicorn skipping down a rainbow eating snowcones. For real. It's magical.

I have had a few kinks in the website, so that may take a bit to get the wrinkles out of... But I will still be on Big Cartel and of course Facebook has a E-commerce!

We will kick of this maical event on April 20th with an awesome blog party!
The festistivities will include giveaways, coupon codes and lots of other really cool stuffs!

 I hope to see you all there!

L♥VE U Lots!
