Doing the Happy Dance

Yep, that's me. So happy to say I am officially done sending out all of your pretties as of yesterday. Everything is in your hands or in the mail. Took a bit longer for me than I had predicted but now I know for next time right?

Holiday is in the works and also getting busy for the local fair here I am doing. Send me an email if you plan on attending and I can send you a flyer to save you a whole whopping $2 on your admission...courtesy of the Jr. League.

All remaining Mish Mash inventory will be available for purchase after the fair on my website around the 19th of October, and there just may be some other goodies you have not seen before too :)I have to say that I adore all of the wonderful photos I have been greeted with in my in-box. Can a designer be so lucky to have such cute shoppers? I am one lucky gal!

Miles of Smiles

I am just about done! My goal was to get everyone's packages out by Friday and I have about 20 left. Please send me an email if you have any questions to lovesmenot@comcast.net. The remaining orders will all ship Monday. Shipping took twice as long as I had guessed but everything has to be checked over and neatly packaged before it gets out to you.

I have the best shoppers around! I really am fortunate. I would not be where I am today if it were not for you so thank you ! And thank you for your patience. Part of starting and growing as a new business is learning and discovering new ways to handle things and we are getting there I promise!

Holiday line is in the works and the entire line will all be ready to ship and available on line sometime late October. Talk about immediate gratification! I also plan on rolling out the trunk show program for our Spring line and not Holiday.

After any exchanges I have to handle I will be doing a local fair here in 3 weeks and whatever I have left from the fair and fall line will be available online the week of Oct 18th.

On another note I love to see all of your sweeties in their LMN so if you have a photo you would like to share send it to my email :)

Work in Progress

I have been a bit quite because I have been busy tackling this....

so I can get it to you as quickly as possible. I guess I can say this is honestly a growing pain in the process. WOW. I swear I turn the lights out go to bed at a much too late hour and then come back downstairs in the morning and the clothes have multiplied!

I have had some more than wonderful helpers come by to bless me with their free time or not so free time and help with the sorting and folding into the wee hours. Thank you ladies I can not thank you enough for your help!
Most of you should get a shipping notification via the USPS website as we enter your information. I am still shooting for the goal of having this all out by Friday. Off to work!

Late Nights

Isn't this photo the yummiest? Who does not love a good cupcake? I love them even more than cake or ice cream!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

I am busy getting every one's orders sorted and nicely packaged and the first round of shipments are in the mail :). I plan on having everything to all of you and in your little hands no later than next Saturday.

I did not realize just how much we have grown and with that comes of course the "growing pains" and wow I am meticulous and love the items to be perfectly packaged when you get them.

No for the weekend and my daughter's sleep over. I know not good timing and my party guests will have to "oversee" the sorting facility my dining and living rooms have become. How on earth did I let her talk me into a sleepover? I guess I remember them growing up and trying to stay up as late as possible and telling stories, ah the stories! Let's just hope the girlies have a busy Saturday and don't stay up past midnight because after that I cannot make any guarantees that I can stay awake after such a busy week!

Pin Head

Things are moving right along. I have been super busy getting ready to get all of your Fall orders to you, working on Holiday samples and of course the art fair I am doing here in Denver next month. I don't know if I am coming or going and seriously look at my pincushion because this is what I feel like now....complete chaos :)

On the subject of Motherhood, what kind of mother allows her 3 yr old to fall asleep on the stairway? Me I guess. Riddled with guilt and I am going to have to make up for it big time after this week is through! Don't worry I moved her to her bed but left her here long enough for a quick photo. My oldest will be turing 7 this week too, I guess I don't have the best timing so Mommy will have to do her best in making her birthday extra special!You are all patiently waiting on your Fall orders and Mish Mash will start to ship tomorrow - yay! I cannot wait to get it to you and see all the wonderful pictures! I really poured my soul into this collection and have spent so much time on it. Orders are all coming through the US postal mail via priority so you get it nice and quick.

On the subject of replenishing the site with the Mish Mash items. At this time I am not going to be adding any additional items. However, I have a lot of items that are part of the collection that will be available at the fair along with Holiday and some rare one of a kind pieces too. If you live nearby take a peek at the info here and be sure to come say hello :)I will leave you with this special photo of Baby Harlow...isn't she just precious! And of course she is extra sweet in her Loves Me Not bloomers from the Summer collection, what a proud Mother Meredith must be!

So what am I waiting on?

I thought I would let you all know what you are waiting to hear and that is that orders will ship the week of September 14th. Yep, my dining room will soon transform into an assembly line complete with little helpers and plenty of fun. That's the best part, the anticipation of getting all of the goodness to you and then come the photos!

As for restocks, I do not plan on offering restocks at this time. I am going to be doing my first "fair" on October 14th-17th here in Denver. I am going to offer some pieces from the "Mish Mash" collection, some one of a kinds you wont see on the website and my Holiday collection as well. After the fair, I will restock the website with what I have to offer.

Holiday line will be available in early October and the best part is that it will all be ready to ship! No waiting to get your goodies. It will all be pre made here in the wonderful USA and ship the week I have it all up. I also hope to have a traveling trunk program in place at that time as well.

So you can imagine things have been busy and I think I have answered each and everyone of your lovely emails. If I slacked and forgot someone please send me an email to lovesmenot@comcast.net. I pride myself on taking care of my customers because you all are extra special to me!
