2009 Calendar... sneak peek

Artful Sentiments 2009 Calendar
Just a little peek at the 2009 calendar.

I love creating this little calendar every year.... and am always so excited with the response it gets from my customers, family and friends.

It's not yet available in the shop, but should be within the next couple of weeks.

Quick and Simple!

The new issue of Quick and Simple is out, and (YAY!) my coasters are in a piece on summer parties! They chose my sweet zinnia, margarita and cupcake coasters to go with their orange, green and pink themed party in a box items, but there are loads of options for your summer party and beyond.
Coasters are available in the shop, as well as at some of my fabulous retailers...

Mermaids on Main, Chatham, MA
The Spotted Cod, Sandwich, MA
Coastal Cottage, Brewster, MA
P-Town Pulp, Provincetown, MA
Koi Boutique, Garwood, NJ
Sugar Magnolia, Harpers Ferry, WV
(stop by and visit them, won't you?)

I'm thrilled to be included in this piece, even though, sadly, the magazine is folding and this is the last print issue. Thanks Q&S!

One of the things I love about having my own biz.... getting to know some really amazing small business owners, from all over the country (and world!). We share experiences, support and encourage each other, as we navigate through new business milestones, ups and downs.

I've been helping Carrie of Sommer Designs out a bit with how things work at a wholesale show, and sharing my many resources and long to-do and to-bring lists for setup and the show itself. Carrie is exhibiting in her first wholesale show - the California Gift Show next week, debuting her fabulous new full aprons, to complement her line of half aprons, beautiful bags, and sweet hand sewn gifts. You can visit her blog to get a peek at her new aprons, and the gorgeous photographs she has to show them off!

I was so excited to go to my PO Box today and find a lovely gift from Carrie - these beautiful lavender liners. Now my unmentionables will be smelling 0h-so-pretty.
Thanks so much for the wonderful gift, Carrie, and for thinking of me when I know you're so busy! (Oh, and of course, have a great show!)
