Okay, so sorry for being gone from my blog for so long…I hate when that happens. But, sometimes life just gets a little too crazy and something’s gotta give. Since I ususally choose for it to not be my children or the hubby (although that sometimes happens) this time it ended up being my blog. For good reason though.
We had our first Whimsy Green sale of the year, and it was a huge success! We are so humbled EVERY TIME by the devotion of our fans and followers. So this is a huge THANK YOU to all of those of you who braved the weather, came early, fought the crowd, waited in line, and brought a smile to our face:) We literally ran out of a lot of things, and although there were still some fun finds left in the store, the walls were pretty bare by the end of Saturday!
Here’s a picture of the workers Saturday morning…
it’s a pretty blurry i phone pic, but you get the picture. My oldest sister Jenni came to help for the first time. She’s on the far left, along with my next oldest Sonia, a wonderful helper and family friend Cindy, and myself. My sister Melanie helped thursday but then had to head home to work on Saturday.
And thanks to Amanda for this picture…of what it looked like outside while we were waiting for the clock to strike 9 before opening the doors:)
That is the line of people waiting. SO BLESSED!! They started showing up just before 8:30!
So, for those of you that live a distance away, or weren’t able to make it, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of what Whimsy looks like before it gets picked apart:)
In the front room we had the little girls room…
I loved how whimsical it felt….
and one more..
We had this fun rustic/shabby area by the front door…
I love how the natural and pops of color went together..
A classic is always our gallery wall..
It was plum full
Then we had the bright kitchen area…
With a gallery wall of it’s own…
and some fun accessories…
I’m always amazed how full we can make this shop thinking that there are only 4 of us crafting away, and how it always pulls together:) Again, a huge thank you to all of our supporters!!
