Our Website Has LAUNCHED!

Kristi and I are so excited to announce that after months of hard work our website ( has launched!

Any of you who have created websites know what a big deal this is…for us doubly because Kristi and her wonderful husband Matt built the site themselves.  Kristi will be writing a blog in the next few months with tips and tricks for those of you who might be thinking of creating a website for your small business.

To celebrate this momentous occasion in the life of our small business we are offering an extremely rare 40% off all merchandise (excluding custom orders) on our website.  The offer is time-limited so check it out as soon as you can.  It will run Friday August 23rd to the end of the day on Saturday August 24th, 2013.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hiho Hiho It’s back to work we go!

July and our month-long summer break have come to a close.  Kristi kept very busy with her graphic design business and family.  It wasn’t all work for Kristi, though, she spent a fabulous week on the gorgeous gulf coast. The break from reality and coastal living have inspired her and I can’t wait to see the new designs she comes up with this fall.

I spent my month on the road with my family.  First we went to visit family & friends in Canada and to attend our nieces high school graduation.  While I was visiting my parents, north of Kingston Ontario, they introduced me to the most mind-blowing and amazing antique store I’ve ever been to.  I’ll be featuring it in our next blog post.  After we arrived home from Canada we spent 4 glorious nights in our own beds and then we headed down to New Orleans for the BIG trip celebrating my husband and niece’s graduations.


Here they are along with our boys standing in front of St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square (French Quarter).  New Orleans bubbles over with creativity surrounding food, art & music…oh and the ghost stories.  I can’t even begin to express how much I love that city.

So now it’s back to reality and back to work.  We are not complaining, though, because we get to do something that we love every day and on our own terms.  How lucky are we?  Kristi and I had a day together this week that we used to visit some of our stores and plan for our busy upcoming season.  We are both feeling very creatively inspired and are excited to be back at it!

We hope that you all are having an amazing summer and are feeling as inspired and energized as we are!
