Shades of Pink and Flowers Tote Bag

Kimart has been kind enough to feature Strawberryona on her blog!
go to: and read about us! She has also featured several other shops. You just might find that very special item you've been looking for.
Thanks, kimart!

Ahhh, School Has Begun Again!

Today Hannah went back to high school! Now I can concentrate better on my crafts for etsy!
She's a dear but when she's home, she wants attention. I know all you moms know what I mean!

Today I'm working on yet another kitchen accessory - hot pads for the table. I'll post them in my shop as soon as they are finished -

Looking good so far...

We found that the sidewalk sale was a bust! Unfortunately, we found out it wasn't advertised - just spur of the moment. But, we gained some contacts and some insight into what we want to do at the next one!
We had no idea how much wind there really was here! Colorado Springs is windy at times, especially in the winter, but small gusts of wind would shoot by and everything would be blown off the table. In the future, we will be buttoning down a bit more!

I purchased a table-top sign from VistaPrint and we are in the process of designing a banner for the front of the table.
My biggest goal in all of this is to not lose sight of the fun and creativity!

We will be setting up shop today at a sidewalk sale downtown!
We don't have a sign for this kind of thing yet - actually I ordered one but it isn't here yet. So, we will be winging it this time. Hopefully, our cute little items will sell themselves without a sign. We do have hang tags, though.
This will be our first time in a sidewalk sale type event. Mona is going to set it up and I will join her later in the day. (I must go to Denver to see a very precious baby born 2 days ago :)
I'll let you know how it turns out. Wish us luck!
