No More Holiday Orders...but I wish I could!!

If I could multiply myself by at least 3 I would be able to continue taking orders. As of today, unless I have already talked to you about an order, I can't take any more orders that need to be ready before Christmas. Of course, I am still taking orders to be ready after the Holidays!!!

I do have some frames in stock that I can sell so contact me if you really need a frame and are not super picky about what it is. I will try to post a list of what I have.

I have lots of new ideas that I will begin working on in January as well as getting the flat screen TV frames up and going.

Spring Parties!!!
I am starting to book parties for February, March and April so if you want to host a party let me know soon so I can get your date on my calendar.

Thanks to all of you!

Oh! I almost forgot. Check out the press my family and I are getting this month.
My husband wrote a short blurb in SB magazine this month and there is a pic of my kids and husband - I did not pick that picture.
My sister and I are in the city lights magazine (photo from boutique de noel)
La-Te-Da has an ad in SB family and kids this month and next month I sponsored the cover page for SB family and kids and my two kids (Cooper almost 3 and Marshall almost 1) will be on the cover.

Thanks Monroe!

I just want to say THANKS to all of my monroe customers. If there were a race you would currently be winning :-)
I would like to offer a 20% discount to all returning monroe customers from now until September 1st. Contact me to order instead of ordering on my website. Make sure you mention that you saw my blog.
It is not too early to order for Christmas....and the new quote frames make very special gifts!!

Speaking of Christmas...... Please place your orders early. I was still making frames and delivering on Christmas Eve last year (8 months pregnant) and I can't do that to my family this year. So, I will not be taking any orders past Thanksgiving. I have a really hard telling people no but now it is in writting so maybe I will do better :-)

A few new favorites

This Frame is Distressed white with regular molding and gold, bronze and silver accent. This frame is not on the website but it was a huge hit in Monroe so I wanted others to see it.

Here is something new!! I am really excited about making these frames because they can be personalized with your favorite quote, saying or bible verse. Be creative we can put any saying on them. I will have more samples up soon including color and font options.

Here is a molding that we are bringing back. It is called egg and dart. We have had trouble getting this product but hopefully we will be able to continue offering it because it makes a gorgeous frame.

Family Photos

Here are our family photos from the beach.

I had high hopes that we would get an awesome picture worthy of being displayed in my hallway and in frames at shows and here is what we came out with!! This is the only way we could get Cooper to stand still for a pic.
Although I was a little aggravated at the time because we could not get a good shot, I am thrilled with this photo and just laugh every time I look at it. This is the Hess Family with our hilarious 2 year old!!!
