This year the shop was put on the backburner a tad. I have 3 very imporatnt reasons for backing off and working the hours after they went to sleep... and I'm glad I did- but this year...they all go to school..which means...creative soul time again for me. After 5 years of babies I'm ready for alone time to sit and think and experiment and put together photoshoots. I'm excited for a couple big projects I have planned for the shop in 2013 - one being to launch a whole line of boutonnières and wedding bouquets. I also partnered with dreamspunkids to help accesscorize their fall line for 2013. So be looking for that come september. I've also got some amazing boutiques taht buy from me each month and I'm so greatful for their continued support and love - I'm so greatful they buy local and handmade. It allows me to create and do something I love every day. I love my job! My little shop has grown so much and I'm so thankful thats it continues to do well. Without all the cocorose lovers I would not be where I am without you sharing and ordering and sending in photos ect It really is something I love. And something that makes my heart skip a beat when i sit down to my table to mash up something new..And while I continue to do headbands- My big goal is really to get into weddings and just focus on something fresh and new for the shop.. so if you know any brides.. send them my way I will discount their bouquets in exchange for great pictures!
Tell them to mention the blog post!
Here is a bouquet order that started it all- thanks dana! I loved hunting for the vintage fabric in this piece its so one of a kind- and I loved molding the form-and hand tucking and stitching. It was like my hands were making love..and best of all they can be heirlooms with old fabric from ancestors. How cool is that!!!!
