First of all, let me just say, yes, I am cramming a lot of info into one post.
It is Saturday evening as I write this post, and I am exhausted- about to snuggle in with the family and watch Rio and try to stay awake. Sarah and I had a fabulous opening day and are so far enjoying being a part of the wonderful Wild Rose team that has welcomed us with open arms. Lynette is the sweetest shop owner and I am thoroughly going to enjoy working with her.
I also want to extend a thank you to the people who made an effort to come out and visit us today…. our friends Leslee, Debbie, & Michelle, Brooke, Sharon and her fabulous daughter, Megan, Rebecca, Shannon, and Gail. We truly appreciate your friendship and support!
Thank you also to my brother, Dana, and his awesome girlfriend, Viri for having flowers delivered to me at the shop. That was the sweetest surprise!
And of course, you need to see photos…
Here is a picture of Sarah and me (nabbed from Sharon’s blog!).
I already shared photos of our space the other day, but here are some other shots from around the shop…
The ladies in the shop all work together so well to create a beautiful, cohesive, and fun shopping space! Thanks guys, for allowing Sarah and I to be a part of it!
Secondly, I wanted to share a new fun project that Jaime from That’s My Letter and I are starting up. Jaime e-mailed me last week and wanted to send something she made to Emmy. A fellow craft vendor had given Jaime some fun fabric and she thought Emmy would love it, and she wanted to pay the favor forward be making something for Emmy with the fabric. Want to see? She made
me her this adorable toadstool change purse! Isn’t it the cutest? (Sorry for the dark picture- when I came home this afternoon it was snowing and was very dark!)
Anyhow, when Jaime asked me if she could send something to Emmy in this pay it forward manor, I asked her what she thought about starting a “pay it forward” chain. So I will be creating something for a fellow blogger and sending it along… I need to decide what and to who, but then that blogger in turn will pay it forward to another and so on… just a big chain of happiness! I hope if you get tagged you will continue the chain!
And FINALLY, the last part of this long post….
Lisa is again hosting her monthly before and after link party. I went for my morning walk yesterday and the whole time I contemplated what would be my February project, because I have a billion to choose from! I really want to work on our guest bath, especially after adding the new silver leafed MirrorMate frame. (Speaking of which today is your LAST CHANCE to enter the giveaway!) So I have decided that my project will be painting the vanity!
Wish me luck! After all, this month we only have 29 days! And it’s already the 5th! YIKES.
