This world of blogging is fantastic, isn't it?
In fact, it's been even more fantastic than I thought it would be.
Blogging has been good to me—really good to me.
I've met amazing people, and learned amazing things. And I'm not just saying that.
But, I think it's time to say goodbye to Made Sweet.

But what is this? A eulogy?

I simply think it's time to focus on graduation and finishing school.
I have ever so much to do.
I'll probably come back to blogging someday. And by probably, I mean almost definitely.
Except with a new blog. Someday. I'll let you know when that happens.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your wonderful comments, and for reading. Made Sweet has been fun. Happy blogging!!

Some of the favorite posts to reminisce on:


60th wedding anniversary bottles

Last month was my grandma Leonora and grandpa Maynard's 60th wedding anniversary! My aunt asked me to make a little something for the celebration party, and I had so much fun putting together these soda pop labels. They were delicious too—Leonora Lime, Mango Maynard, and Gushing Guava. One of the best parts was gathering stories and stats to put on the labels. We had everything: their first kiss, their world travels, adventures while raising their children, plus how many years, days, hours, minutes, and seconds they have been married.

Here's to a happy 60!


Happy New Year Package

Some simple New Year's packages I designed and put together: cider and hot chocolate packs wrapped in white tissue paper, put in cellophane packages with a candy cane, and sealed with a matching sticker.

My new year has been filled with fresh snow (as you can see), and it's been absolutely beautiful. Hope your holidays have been wonderful as well!!


Christmas Card Series

Series of Christmas cards I did this year with acetone ink transfers (my new favorite method). And then put between board covered in my favorite book cloth, of course.
Merry Christmas!
See you in January.


Merry Christmas Eve

It's Christmas! Good luck with last minute present buying and wrapping.
