Thankgiving

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

We have so much to be thankful for this year! Not only did we finally get the Pretty'n'Preppy on Etsy shop up and running but our water bottles have been included in several holiday guides (thank you sublimedesign and Etsy) AND a print magazine wants to feature us ... seriously, we could not have asked for a better shop opening!

A big shout out and thank you to all our friends and family who have supported and encouraged us every step of the way. Much love and big kisses to all!

Hearts and Followers

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

What a great day! We started off receiving a very nice comment from Jennifer Paganelli (Hi, Jennifer ... thank you for being our first commenter and first follower on Twitter ... that was awesome!) and followed with getting our state sales tax number, finally setting up our Twitter page, actually getting followers (how cool is that?!), and even got some more products added to the Etsy shop. Now we just need to get the rest of our products up. Hopefully I can get some pictures taken tonight and get the tote bags up. The tote bags are great ... I promise ... you'll see ... just as soon as I get the pictures taken!!

The Etsy shop seems to be doing pretty good. We've gotten a few hearts ... we love getting hearts! Now if we could just make our first sale!! As giddy as we get just receiving a heart, I don't know what we will do when we do finally make that first sale! Yes, there quite possibly could be a happy dance involved and maybe even a run around the block set to Queen's "We are the Champions"! All options are possible at this point!

Well, time to work on some pictures ... :)

And So It Begins ...

Monday, November 16, 2009

The last few months have been such a blur for us! We started off back in June with this crazy idea to open up a preppy gift shop. Ok ... that's cool ... we'll open up a cute little Etsy shop and see how far we can take it. As we got into it and started making all these really pretty products with these crazy beautiful fabrics, it became evident quickly that either we were going to blow all our of profit buying fabric and making things for ourselves or we were going to have to start our own fabric shop ... hello, Lola Pink!

We have no idea where this journey will take us but we are so excited get going and go as far as we can!
