Sweet Taste of Freedom ~ The Fancy Lady Gourmet

// The Fancy Lady // Website // Etsy Store //

Oddly enough, I met this business lady through blogging.  She actually was the November Giveaway Winner!  One look at her delicious looking baked goods, well, let's just say she appealed to my sweet tooth!  Enjoy! 

Where are you from?
 I am sadly from NJ ,and I'm not proud.

How did you get your store/business started? 
Well i was working part time at a dead end job and had stopped going to school because of money issues so i needed to find an outlet for my time off. I had seen alot of cool bakeries while i was in london so i decided to start baking and bringing it in to my coworkers after while i started getting orders and realized this was what i should have been doing all along .

What inspires you? 
Lots of random things ,lots of cute cards i see , cute images i see while I'm out and i just think wow that would make a cute cookie or cupcake.

How long have you been open and what is some of your favorite items?
It will be 3 years in Febuary that I have had my etsy shop. My favorite item in my shop has to been my damask cookies i love damask , i could wallpaper my whole house in it . I really love custom orders though , I once got an order for all different types of guns and amo i really enjoyed i love a challenge!

What celebrity would you most like have praise your store/product(s)? 
I would love for Martha Stewart to praise my work she has been a big inspiration and second runner up would be Dita Von Tesse . I know she has nothing to do with baking but I love her.

If you had to use only one word to describe yourself what would it be?
Thats a really hard one I'm torn between creative and unique . Unique may be a little cliche but I think I am , I feel like alot of the different things i like or enjoy are opposite from one another if that makes any sense.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
I have alot but the top two are lateness and people who wait till the last minute . I am a big plan ahead type of person and it drives me nuts when i get a request for cookies that they want in 3 days.
What are your favorite websites? I love blogger I enjoy reading some really great blogs and I also have become obsessed with pinterest .

What would people be surprised to learn about you? 
Oh man, this one I'm not really to proud of but It's the only one i can think of right now. I don't have a license.  It's not because of a DUI or anything but It's a long story but I'm working on getting one at the moment.
