Welcome Sitstahood!!

That's right!!! Today I am being featured on that wonderful comment love site: The Secrets in the Sauce !! These wonderful women believe that the secret to success in the blogosphere is support. If you are a Sitsta, you are dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments. Lots and lots of comments. Here, I have found so many new sites to follow and who follow me. I just love my Sitstas!

For those of you who are new to Susie's Homemade, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Susan (a.k.a. Susie) Ewing. I am a thriving stay-at-home mom of two wonderful girls (5 and 18) and a caretaker of my 67 year old live-in mother. I started this blog to support my chocolate shop on Etsy.com ( Susie's Homemade Chocolate Shop ) but, it has become so much more.

It is here that I explore my adventures in homemaking, baking, cake decorating and gardening. This has lead to competitive baking , writing for other sites and designning other blogs . I am thrilled by all that has come to me over the last year that I have been on line.

The thing that is nearest and dearest to my heart is cake design. When I celebrated my blogoversary, I posted this slide show. I am reposting it here for the benefit of my new readers. This really shows what I am all about.



I love stalkers. Check out my left-side-bar for the many ways you can stalk me in cyberspace! I sure hope that you like what you see here and come back soon:-)

Congratulations on being the featured blogger of the day. It's a little past 2am here and I'm already ready to dive into one of your delectable treats!

Congrats on your Spotlight Day! May the sunshine of the SITSA-hood shine upon you all day and many days to come!!

Juls said...

I'm bookmarking your site, I'm having an "etsy" giveaway soon...and I'm definitely interested in sending one of my winners some of your treats, yummo!

Blythe said...

Oh my! I just discovered SITS and am pretty excited... but I think I am even more excited by your cakes! While I am a self-described "cake snob" I am certainly not what would call a cake expert. I make quite the chocolate cake, but that's kind of the end of it. However, this snobbery leaves me with great respect for other people's fabulous skills. I'm terribly impressed :)

Alicia said...

Hi Susie! Congrats on being the featured blogger on SITS!!

Sassypants Wifey said...

Happy SITS day! What wonderful looking creations. I would do anything for cake. Once my bestie and I took a class on base, just cause we found out they served cake at the end of it. Yep, desperate and lazy in one fell swoop. I love your pics of what you made. Cant wait to look around more.

Carebear said...

Hey, congrats on being featured. Your slideshow wouldn't work for me! But I visited your site at Etsy and you're killing me with the cookie dough balls. Whenever I bake cookies, only two thirds of the dough makes it into the oven, LOL! Enjoy your day in the spotlight!
