A New Adventure

Is it really March 11? Wow eleven days since my last post. Time really will slip away from you if you let it. In that time between my last post, I have decided to embark on a new adventure that I am so excited share with you. Located about 15 minutes from my home, there is a little boutique/gift shop called Sweet Pea's. It makes it's home in a sweet little house filled with all the wonderful vintage charm that I love so. Sweet Pea's is a boutique filled with wares from over 70 local designers. All of the items sold in the shop are handmade. I had contemplated becoming a part of the Sweet Pea family about a year and a half ago but the timing was just not right. Recently the opportunity presented itself once again. With much thought and prayer I have decided to set up my little shop, Dandelion Wishes, and become part of the Sweet Pea team. So I have three weeks to gather display pieces, make price tags and business cards, make a shop sign, and make enough products to fill my shop. I jokingly told my husband and son that the dinner selection for the next three weeks would be either pizza, hot dogs, or Cheerios. ( Hmmm I think I was joking) I have so many ideas swimming around in my thoughts and I have been very busy creating. Before I let too many more days go by, I wanted to share with you some of the items that will be a part of Dandelion Wishes at Sweet Pea's. I have created several different variations of my Peek a Boo Lunchbox Notes....
I have been saving this pretty pink paper for sometime now and this seemed like the perfect project to use it on. A sweet scalloped chipboard book---just a sample of it's pages........

One last project for today..this sweet little farm accordion book. I found this adorable fabric and just had to have a piece. It makes the perfect cover for the vintage farm animals inside......


Well I'd better get back to work. April 1 will be here before I know it. I will definitely be posting more of my completed projects for you all to see so I hope you will visit again real soon.
