Pink Spiders

Pink Spiders! This was a project I had planned to do last Halloween, but never got around to it. As a designer, I'm a big sketcher, and I always have a handful of different sketchbooks floating around. They're great for somebody like me - I tend to have lot's of ideas but not the time to actually get them all done. Now that I have my own store, I have an outlet for these ideas, and my sketchbook is one of my best resources. Scribbled in one of my sketchbooks from last year was this idea for the pink glittered spiders, and I knew they would be perfect for my "good witch" display this year.  I brought in a bunch for my Fall Open House and they sold out within a week! I made some more - come check them out!

Facebook...Finally I've been resistant to join Facebook. I attempted a few years back but never really got into it. Though as a business owner you have to look at things a bit differently and I do admit I like the idea of being accessible to my customers. I just set up the account - haven't had a chance to make it all fancy yet - but search for it if you'd like. I tried setting up a link here but Blogger is giving me some trouble at the moment.

Christmas is Coming! Really?

We're literally just a few hours into the month of October and yes, I'm talking about Christmas already! (In fact, believe it or not, I'm already sketching out some ideas for my Spring 2012 displays!) But back to 2011...

I've selected the dates for our 
Holiday Open House at The Blue Pear.

Thursday November 3rd

Friday November 4th

Saturday November 5th

We'll have tons of new merchandise
including Christmas Decor
& Great Gift Ideas!

No Peeking!
We'll be closed Oct 31, Nov 1 & 2
so we can transform the shop into a
Winter Wonderland.
