Love is in the Air!

I've been getting the shop ready for Valentine's Day!  You can't decorate for this day without using tons of pink, cream, lace, and ruffles!  The shop is beginning to look so romantic!  Here are a few pics of some new items!

Thanks Pat for all your creative valentine ideas!!

Shop Till' We Dropped!

I just got back from a retail order writing show in Atlanta, Georgia.  Connie, from Aesthetics in Crystal Lake, joined me for this intense show!  Imagine 3 buildings, 20 floors in each building packed with tons of product to choose from!!  This is a picture of one of the buildings it was actually the smallest of the three buildings!!

Can you believe I was focusing on items for Christmas...ALREADY!!  I ordered some beautiful items and know that Christmas 2011 won't disappoint!!

Distressed, pillows, chairs, and totes were definitely a trend!

The chair above and these pillows were really neat display props!  I loved the straw!

This reminds me of my holiday window!!  Love the paper dress!!

I loved these linens and the twig canopy!!

 There were soooo many jewelry and accessory vendors at the show!  I loved this booth!

We ordered/shopped for 44 hours in four days! Connie and I were on a stopping for breakfast or lunch! We joked that we lived off popcorn and margaritas for those four seemed like every showroom was offering these and we couldn't pass them up!! Here we are at the end of our third day!

We felt like her...

I'll be getting in tons of new merchandise so be sure to stop by!!

So Surprised!

I picked up the latest copy of Somerset Life and was so surprised to find creative idea #134 featured my packaging!!!  If you order from my etsy shop or pick something up from my shop I always like to make the package just as cute as the item purchased!

Thanks for letting me share!! XO Traci
