AFTER MARKET RESOLUTIONS

So, do you think it is odd to make a new year's resolution in May?  So here's my list.

1 - Post more often.

2 - Share more recipes.

3 - Have more giveaways.

4 - Highlight great tips and gadgets.

That is probably enough.  Let's see how I do.

Now, as you probably already know, Spring Market in Salt Lake City just finished up.  For us, it is like a giant family reunion.  We have made wonderful friends over the past couple of years and it is so fun to catch up.  The good news and the bad news is we were so busy (that's the good news), that we didn't get to see everyone and I didn't get a single picture of anyone (that's the bad news).  I did get a few pictures of our booth so here goes SHOW AND TELL.




















The most exciting news first.  We won the booth award for BEST MERCHANDISING.  All those hours painting paid off.  There were so many fabulous booths, we were thrilled and very humbled.






Starting from the top, We found these great letters to hang above our booth.  Wanted to make sure everyone knew where they were.

The awesome painted canvas floor.  It was a big hit.

Couldn't have done it without NELLIE.  This is Janice's daughter and she came to help.  By the way, that is a baby bump, she is due with her first little boy in just 4 weeks.  We were so excited to have her there.
















The back wall, and A TOUCH OF WHIMSEY is our newest book.  12 decorative pillows.  We will have it ready to sell next week and yes, we will be having some fun giveaways.
















One side of the booth with the FAB FIVE book which made the MODA TOP 25 BOOK LIST.  There is also a sneak peak of a new quilt with Kate Spain's new collection coming soon.
















Finally, our other wall with a metal center to hang the patterns and my personal new favorite quilt featuring Basic Grey's new line, Curio.

It's good to be back in the blogging world, and I will be keeping my resolutions.  Next week we will debut the new book.  Unitl then, have a great week.

Janice and Marcea

Congrats on the award!!! I'm sure you both are absolutely thrilled. I'm sorry I missed seeing the two of you at market. My son had a birthday and both boys had cub scout cross over....so this Momma stayed home.

Smiles,
Kelly
