HOW ALEJANDRA GOT HER GROOVE BACK…

New TheMarshmallowStudio.com site launch announcement

Do you like the title of this post?! hahahaha

I thought long and hard about what the title to this milestone post should be. “How Alejandra (me) got her groove back…”, I jokingly said outloud to the hubz. After other even more silly suggestions, this one stuck. It felt right because now I feel more energized and motivated. I have a new found self-confidence to say more, do more, show more! 

With this post I’d like to introduce you to our new and bright

THE MARSHMALLOW STUDIO website.

 welcome!!

{DIY} PRETTY BOW FOR EASTER BUNNY TREATS

DIY PRETTY PAPER BOW FOR EASTER TREATS by TheMarshmallowStudio_hero

As we approach The Marshmallow Studio’s 4th year anniversary, I’m more in love with this entrepreneur journey of mine than I have ever been.

I’ve had the opportunity to create adorable marshmallow art, design incredible showpieces, work with fabulous stylist, publish a book in two languages, travel all over the United States teaching, attend super fun conferences, partner with awesome brands, represent the biggest marshmallow manufacturer in the country, make tons of friends, expand my skills (business, sales, marketing, social media, etc.) and most importantly… I’ve been able to do it all from home so I don’t miss a day seeing my kids grow up!

The Marshmallow Studio has turned into more than just a marshmallow designs business. It has slowly transitioned into an educational blog with marshmallow recipes, crafts, product reviews, sugar art tips, giveaways and more. Since nothing is life ever stays the same, TMS is again undergoing another transition – we’re expanding our content!

I want to be able to share with you other things that make my heart flutter – DIYs, crafts, painting, home decor, baking, cooking, travel, entertaining, parenting and so much more. I already share glimpses of my other projects and personal life on my Instagram account but would like to tell the story behind them here as well for those of you who have expressed interest in learning more. You can expect to start seeing more posts with these topics from this day forth. Don’t worry, marshmallows are still my #1 passion and I will always try to keep that the focus of this blog. I hope you enjoy all the fun stuff that’s to come :)

BOOK RELEASE DAY & HITTING THE ROAD!!

 

The day I circled on my planner months and months ago is finally here….

The day I could officially call myself a published author, a sugar professional, a serious entrepreneur….

The day my book mARTshmallows would be released!

There were many ways I wanted to celebrate this day – fancy dinner, release party, confetti and lots of desserts! As sad as it may sound, I never really had time to plan any of these out.

This day creeped up  on me too fast. I have been busy selling the book, shipping, preparing for show season, my work with Jet-Puffed and crafting for my son’s upcoming birthday party.

But one thing I did make sure I did was plan a fabulously awesome book tour :) so I could meet many of you in person and spread ‘mallow love across the country.

{RECIPE} STARMALLOW STRAWBERRY DIPPERS

This past year has truly just flown by. It was a year and a month ago that I joined the KRAFT Jet-Puffed team as their Community Manager. I have had a blast interacting with fans, participating in behind-the-scenes work, and creating unique edible art pieces using Jet-Puffed marshmallows.

THE mARTshmallows BOOK ARRIVAL…


Tiki Draft

Seems like just yesterday my husband and I were just talking about how cool it would be to publish a book and show people the art of marshmallow decorating. It all started has a fun adventure and quickly turned into a serious task. We wanted to make it the coolest, most complete cookbook out there. As self-publishers that meant we had to take an extra dose of determination and motivation…. not to mention, drain our savings account and learn new skills quickly to make it all happen by the deadlines. Deadlines that we set without really knowing what it all entailed and not knowing what road blocks we had ahead of us.
