Hello...where have I been??


I know I haven't posted here in a long time... it has been close to a year. Here is where I have been:

I started a company called New England Candy Co. I never had the intention when I started that it would get as big as it did. My famous last words were, "I'll just give the candy a go and see if anyone likes it..." Then a website I never heard of before called Uncrate.com featured my Giant peanut butter bacon cups. After that my candy was featured on countless websites, Good Day NY, CBS, ABC, The Toronto Star newspaper in Canada... Business grew so fast that I couldn't keep up with orders. I was working full time at my job and making candy in between. I sold candy on both Etsy.com and from my website. I even had lots of local business here in Connecticut.

I can't make the candy in the summer, since warm weather does not permit me to ship chocolates. I am just getting my shop up and running again for the holiday season ahead.

You can check out my sweet candy blog, follow New England Candy Co on twitter, or like us on facebook.

I have added several photos of some of the candies I make. Things will hopefully be calmer this year and I have to get back to my love of flea markets and everything shabby chic. My entire second floor landing is filled with tons of flea market treasures, chandeliers, and BOXES of Chandelier crystals in every shape and color. I am going to seriously try to come back to my blog a lot more often... I have missed it terribly, missed reading all of my favorite blogs all the time (although I have poked my head in once in a while for a peek at some pretty blog eye candy)

Outside of business I still have a day job...can't stop my stable work until hubby graduates. I did leave my long time job at Trader Joe's and found a new job in sales. It has better pay, but the hours went from 50 a week at T.J.'s to 70 a week at the new job. Can't wait until hubby is done with school so I can do my fun business stuff full time... oh well. That's for another post!!
