Exhale.....

Today has been a big day! I met with the manufacturer today and handed off everything :) I have spent hours upon hours of drafting, tracing and preparing to get all of your orders ready. Now we wait. My dear husband Steve hand cut all 70 sheets of posterboard himself, I owe him huge!

I will still be making about 30% of the items on my own such as the twirl skirts, tanks, headbands, women's items and tank dresses. So if you have one of these on your order not including something else then I will be shipping them out as I complete them. The rest of the orders that have multiple items will ship once I get everything back from the manufacturer in approx. 3 weeks time.

I am all about sharing the love. I believe in the motto "What goes around comes around" and I am so grateful for such wonderful friends that I would like to give a little bit back. So with Mother's Day coming up I would like to give away a custom designed flirty skirt, made by moi, in my choice of fabrics. Just post here and the number generator will choose who wins. In addition, I know there are others out there not as fortunate as some of us in today's economy. So, if you know of another Mother who could use a little inspiration or pat on the back please shoot me an email to lovesmenot@comcast.net with a little bit about her. We will choose one to send a custom made skirt to and be sure that you can get her measurements too if she is chosen. Winners will be announced Saturday, May 2.

On the subject of sharing the love, can Mother Nature please send some my way? This is what I woke up to again on Monday morning. It is almost May and we are still dealing with snow. Every time I put the boots away, they get drug back out again.

I so need to scrub the heck out of my house. I have put the cleaning and laundry on hold until I had everything ready for today and trust me it needs it bad!
