A couple weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a home hosted boutique. There'd be a group of women, all of whom have new businesses, getting together to sell some of their individual items and talents in a boutique style setting. Of course, I jumped at the chance. So I've been crazily preparing for the event and sewing my little fingers off. I whipped up a few new apron styles (Christmas ones included for those of you who've been requesting those. *wink*), a couple scarves, and a handful of blingin'blooms (complete with some new found vintage swarovski crystals that sparkle like crazy....mmmmm). Let me just tell you that when I arrived late on Wednesday night to help set up, I was AMAZED at the talent of these ladies. Truly amazed. Not only are these "chicks" ingenious crafters, but the whole idea is to have a group of women that is supportive of each other and our brand-new start-up businesses, without the feelings of competition and cattiness (is that a word?). Anyhow, how cool is THAT?! Women supporting women and helping see our unique ideas blossom. I just love it. Here are some pictures from the "Chic Boutique":
The last day for the debut boutique is tomorrow. If any of you local girls are interested, contact me for details. (COME!!!!!) :) We've talked about having another event before the holidays if you miss out on this one. I also hope to put a bunch of new items up on my blog when it is all done. I'm just so excited about this and have had a blast hanging out with my Chic Boutique friends. Love ya girls!!
