Yay! Yay!! Yay!!!

Social Graces in Conyers is selling Moonpie Designs!

Well, since I work there one Saturday a month they let me put stuff in the shop.=) I am so excited! I went in to work today and Cheryl (the manager) had already added my stuff to the display. Enjoy some pics:

Branded! My hang tags. Like them? *Each one has a different background design.*

Scalloped Edge Quilted Baby Blanket

Snuggly Mini blanket and pillow set

Burpie/Bib Set

I think it looks great - but I may be a little biased. Just a little though.


So last Saturday night as I am desperately trying to finish up everything for The Show, my sewing machine decided to stop working. Yes, the new one. It made me sick and I have been dreading taking it to the shop for fear that it would cost a bajillion bucks to get it fixed. Justin and I finally took it today (I can't put it off any longer - I have lots of orders to fill!) and apparently it just got overheated. Whew! They oiled it up for me and so hopefully it will run perfectly now. They also fixed the bobbin loading thingymabob that never worked right. Yay!

So now I can sew sew sew and fill those orders!

I have to give a HUGE thank you to Zach and Sarah May for helping sooooooooo much with getting Moonpie Designs off the ground! Thanks, Sarah, for the hours of cutting out patterns and fabric, encouraging me to have "the show" and then allowing me to have it at your house, and most of all, for being an amazing friend and keeping me sane! Zach, my blog looks amazing and it's all because of you. I don't even know what else to say -- I'll cook whatever you ask for anytime you ask for it!! Y'all rock!

Thanks also to Lindsay Monihan for cutting all the patterns and fabrics (I know, the totes were horrible!!), helping with "the show", and listening all those days I talked your ears off about whatever happened to be bothering me at the moment. You are the best cousin ever!!!

Thanks Momma and Daddy for driving all the way to GA from LA to help me this weekend and for not letting me throw my sewing machine out the window when it quit on me Saturday night. Y'all are the best and I LOVE YOU!

Justin - I don't even know what to say. Thank you for the hours and hours of listening to me dream about this little business and for all the guidance on the actual "business" end of things. Thank you for cutting out potholder and tote fabric and for watching movies on the floor in the sewing room just so I wouldn't feel alone. Thank you for being my biggest fan and for saying you are "proud of me." You are the best husband ever and I love you more.

Finally, thanks to all the wonderful ladies of Christ Community Church in Conyers for the love and support and for actually showing up and buying things at the show today! You girls ROCK MY SOCKS and I love you all!!

More Products

Let me warn you now that this post will make very little sense and the pictures will be atrocious. (Is that even a real word?) My brain is more than fried. These are some examples of what I'll have Sunday.

Hand towels

Aprons and Mini-Me Aprons

I will also have all of the things listed under a previous post. I believe the post is titled Part Dos and Part Tres. If not, it's around there somewhere. Keep scrolling.
