The Big Ta-Da! of the Day

Without further adieu, I bring you my enormously big, absurdly important news:

We're moving back to New Jersey!

Whew! You have no idea how good it feels to get that off my chest. I was made to swear absolute secrecy (on my massive headband collection, nonetheless!) back in December and couldn't tell a soul. In truth, we took the idea off the table twice during the decision making process, but in the end Mr. Cupcake's was made an offer he couldn't refuse. At the end of the day, while we love the calm, quiet (read: boring!) life we live here in Texas, we know there are a lot of opportunities waiting for us back East.

Oh yeah, we're moving in less than 2 weeks! Not that we have any say in that what-so-ever. For those of you just joining us, Mr. Cupcake and I moved to Dallas about a year and a half ago under similar circumstances. This time we will be heading up to NJ into temporary housing for a few weeks until we can find an apartment/house to rent sometime before April 1. April Fool, indeed.

For all of my Jersey girls, I'll be back on the show circuit in full swing this Fall and Holiday season. Once I have concrete dates and locations worked out, I'll be sure to post them.

Last time I was able to keep The Creative Cupcake open during most of the move, but this time is going to be a little different. I'll be taking orders until 2/25 (next Monday) and then re-opening on/around 4/15 with the launch of our Spring 2008 lines. I'll be keeping up the Basics Sale until we close, because I'm nice like that. Get your orders in ASAP!

With that said... I'm off to freak out about the 6,742 things I have to do before the movers show up!

Glad this move is good news for you! Where in NJ are you moving??? I'm in Morristown! Good luck with everything - a move might do me in at this point, but we are really bad about throwing things out so just the weed out here would take months!

Great news!!! Now maybe we can meet up sometime!

We cannot wait to see you! I'll make the reservations at Bliss!

Brie, I can assure you... this move IS doing me in. I don't know quite how I'm going to manage our own massive weed-out in the time we have, but I'm hoping for a minor miracle. My studio alone could take me a month!

I'll be up in the Northern Bergen County area (Ridgewood, Saddle River) , not far from where we lived before the move out here. I'll be doing some of the shows I used to in Central NJ, so I'm sure we'll run into each other at some point!

Creative Cupcake said...

Definitely Alyssa -- I've missed being so close to the shore that I'm sure (ha!) that I'll be down near you pretty often. I might try and schedule a show or two!

Kate said...

How exciting! I'm in Andover (Sussex Cty.) so I'll have to take a little road trip & check out the shows!

Brie said...

Good luck with it all! You'll be Rev Run's neighbor if you move to Saddle River :) I remember you saying you love that show too!

At least you will be back in time for summer!

My shore neighbors live in Saddle River during the winter - I love hearing the Rev Run stories. My boyfriend got me seasons 1 & 2 on DVD for Christmas :-)
