Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone,

I know I was quiet last week. It was a crazy busy week. I think this week is shaping up that way too... since I am leaving on Wednesday morning for Market... eep! I am going to be sharing our adventures on the facebook page again so keep an eye out over there.

The shop will be open but I won't be able to ship anything until I get back so if you need something this week you will have to buy it today. This is the last time the shop will be unmanned during Market because I will have employees by the next time :)

I had to show you the awesome Tutorial my sweet friend Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy made with Cosmos:

Double Flip HST Tutorial


Gorgeous right? That girl is brilliant :)

Here is the big news. I know I said I was going to make a decision about the shop last Monday... well I did. Unfortunately so did someone else and they stole the one I wanted. It was a tiny little 1000 sq foot place that would have been oh so quaint. So what is a girl to do? I went for the huge 2500 sq foot one instead... we will grow into it right? It is pretty awesome.... and huge. We got approved for it on Saturday. I have to go get a cashier's check today and my husband is calling the insurance company. So I guess when I am back from Market we have some moving to do. Will all of you California girls come and visit? And of course anyone that is in San Francisco on vacation has to come down too :)

Have an awesome Monday!

  22. Way to go Julie! You would have outgrown 1000 sq ft in 6 months and been wishing for more room. Everything happens for a reason. :) If I'm ever back over in your area nothing will keep me away!
