Good news...

I survived another day without my computer! I just got it back tonight to find out that Tim the computer guy was able to save all my files and photos.

Now onto some really good stuff...I was so excited to find out that I had won a necklace from Heather at Angel Face Designs!
I was given a hand stamped sterling silver name necklace similar to the one above only with my boys names and birthstones and let me tell you it is gorgeous!! I get so many compliments on it everywhere I go and my boys were so amazed to see that the necklace had their names on it.

Let's talk about customer service... Not only did I win the necklace but she hand delivered it to me in a beautiful package at the Lodi Street Faire. Now I know she can't hand deliver every piece but it was an honor to meet her in person she is as sweet as can be. Click here to visit Angel Face Designs and see more of Heather's beautiful work.

Thank you Heather!!

What's a girl to do...

Without her computer that is!
I sat down at my desk with my cup of coffee in hand to read my emails as I do every morning. Except when I went to turn on the computer it didn't do anything other than make a lot of strange noises. So with that said I am having computer problems...it is at the computer doctor as we speak and I am just praying that all my photos will be saved! I had to wait all day for my husband to get home so I could use his laptop to check my emails and make this post. I know I was going to post about an amazing jewelry designer but I am going to wait...why because what's a post without photos of her fabulous work and I can't get to the photos without my computer. Oh what a mess...
That also puts a delay on updating our website with the Fall 2009 Collection. Hopefully I will get some good news tomorrow regarding my computer.
Well I'm off to work on orders...

They're going fast...

Wow I am so excited to see how well our new Emme Collection is doing.
The Emme Collection is a Limited Edition and once it's gone...it's gone. The sweaters are especially doing well. I think that is because it is such a versatile piece and will go great with many of our dresses skirts and ruffle pants. Sorry, we have completely sold out of size 2 and 6 in the sweater.

Under the weather...

So I tried to post this yesterday...but nothing was making sense. I came down with the worst head cold Saturday night and I haven't been able to think straight since. I have never had such a bad cold where I am totally disoriented and can't function. I think today is going to be a little better...I hope.

For all of our VIP customers who follow our blog, you are the first to know that we have decided to have a Back to School sale so keep watch for that within the next day or so. Prices shown on our website will reflect the sale price and sale prices may not be applied to previous orders. Our site will be down for a short time as we prepare for the big sale! It is the least we could do since you all are waiting so patiently for our Fall 09 Collection which will launch mid September. I know it is much later than we had anticipated and are learning much from it. I am happy to say we have already started on our Spring 2010 Collection...no delays with this one!

Back to School...

Well today is the first day back to school for my little guys! They look so cute all dressed in their school uniforms. Vance is now in third grade and Gannon is now in first. Oh it makes me sad just to think about it. My time with them this summer just flew by. And now they are both in school all day...what is mom to do. I'm sure I'll adjust just fine but my heart is sad today...

To take my mind off things I searched Etsy for some fabulous back to school items! Look how cute this Mod Kitty Backpack is from Eclu.

I love this journal made with vintage flashcards by Found Paper Co.

These sweet little Blue Whale Stickers are great to keep track of your little ones favorite books. They are available for purchase at Boy Girl Party!

Have a blessed day!
