shop updates!

can you believe it is friday again already? i am sooo ready for the weekend. i may even take a day off ;)
well, it's time for a few shop updates-- wooo hoooooooo!!!

first, yesterday was the most glorious sunny spring day and i just decided it was about time that the whole spring line should come out and play! are you ready for this?
introducing the last 3 of our lovely ladies...

gasp. aren't they purdy?

i hope you love them all as much as i do!
we now offer all products in the following colors:

i can't tell you how happy that makes me to see them all lined up and ready to go! and you all know how much i looooove color. {BIG SMILE.}
am i making it harder for you to choose a color? don't worry. just get one of each ;)

in other news: did you see i've offered to answer your questions? ask away! i think i'm gonna have a lot of fun with this!

and finally... a little announcement. our family is going to be having some big life changes over the next couple months and as such i will be taking a break for a few weeks around the middle of april. before you ask, no, i'm not pregnant! hubs is graduating in a month, and we have decided to seize a wonderful opportunity for him to take an internship. (yay!!) so, we will be moving and i will need to close shop for a few weeks. having said that, if you know you want mother's day gifts, birthday gifts, or a little spring loveliness for yourself, now is the time to order! right now it looks like the last day to order will be april 8th and i will be out until may 16th. (that cutoff date may change as i start packing and getting overwhelmed!) so, you've been fairly warned!

now, go have a good weekend!

have any burning questions for little old me? ask, ask, ask away!
the first half of next week the blog will be going through a little transition.

i'll be switching over to wordpress and the site will be down a few days, so what better time to spend preparing a few question and answer posts!? i will answer (almost) anything - and would love to share some of my secrets here with you.

ready, set, go!
keep it classy, eh? mom is reading. (hi mom!)

turquoise, meet honeysuckle...

do you know about pantone?
do you ever wonder how certain colors seem to be everywhere and influencing everything? fashion, home decor, even nail polish and makeup... 
did you feel like that about turquoise in 2010? (i still do! loooove turquoise)
well, if you know about pantone, it may not surprise you that in december of 2009, pantone officially named turquoise as the color of the year for 2010. and boy, were they right!
according to their website, pantone " has been the world’s color authority for almost 50 years, providing design professionals with products and services for the colorful exploration and expression of creativity. Always a source for color inspiration, Pantone also offers designer-inspired products and services for consumers. For over a decade, Pantone's Color of the Year declarations have influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries including fashion, home and industrial design "

now we know!

well, guess what? there's a new color in town.

i just love how these 2 colors co-exist so happily. don't you?
and while they do look so lovely together, be warned turquoise... hot stuff is movin in! honeysuckle is officially the color of 2011!

let's get to know miss honeysuckle a little better, shall we? she will be our best friend this year afterall!

and we can't forget her:

we call her fuchsia, but she and honeysuckle? twin sisters!

i think this color is perfect for 2011.
full of life.
full of hope.
full of confidence.
full of FUN.
full of courage.
isn't that how you feel 2011 should be?

welcome honeysuckle, i think i loooove you.

and in case you are curious, here is the spring 2011 pantone line-up:

ummm...yes, please!
while my spring colors aren't exactly the same, i am happy to see some familiar shades;)
which is your favorite?
