Survived the Grand Opening, soooo busy!

This whole last week has been a blur
So sorry I haven't had time to update!
Our store opened on Saturday
We had a fantastic turnout!
We were there working Friday night until 4 AM so you can imagine the amount of caffeine that was needed to get us going...
Today was our ribbon cutting ceremony with the Blue Springs Chamber of Commerce
We had a pleasant surprise, Bryan Pratt, our Missouri State Representative
came and had a Resolution in honor of our store!
What an honor. Here we are cutting the ribbon...

Mike & I

This is such an exciting feat for us, Mike truly has put his blood, sweat and tears into this
(well, not so much tears...) :)
The store is going to be a success, I can just feel it!
Koby, Mia and Roman...
bless their little hearts,
wanted to play in the leaves last week.
We have one tree that has leaves and this is the extent of it! LOL
Oh, almost forgot to tell you!
I was featured on the
ClearScraps blog for my Noel album!
Talk about exciting!
Hopefully this is just the beginning of more exposure for my work
It truly is my passion and dream.
I have missed all of my blog friends so
and promise to update you again when I have a spare moment.
(Maybe once the kids are in college?)
((I know, funny, right?))
Have a great Wednesday!
