With a Little Help from My Friends..........

...........Dandelion Wishes at Sweetpea's is officially open. For the past three weeks I have been working nonstop on items for my little shop. There were so many things to accomplish before my deadline of April 1. Collecting items for my display, making inventory, pricing inventory, and preparing all the little things to make my shop special. I have had the display set up in my living room for weeks arranging and rearranging to get it just the way I had envisioned it my my mind. I must say I have been blessed with so many friends and my family who provided me with so much encouragement and support. When I started to become overwhelmed with the task of labeling and pricing all the merchandise it didn't even take a second for my friend, Heidi to volunteer to help.
And when the day finally arrived to set up shop, my mom and my friend, Joyce were right by my side to lend a hand.
I am really excited and pleased with the ending result...........

I am not sure where this little adventure will lead but I am so looking forward to the journey.

MIMI, I am sitting here feeling so happy and excited for you, now that your shop is open, and you have embarked on this wonderful new adventure! I have all my fingers crossed (and toes, if that will help too), that you do extremely well, and sell lots and lots of your adorable creations. I can see quite a few that I would love to have for myself!! You HAVE been busy to have accomplished so much. And your shop is set up really nice. I just know that people will be impressed and will want to take their time looking at each and everything that you have for offer. GOOD LUCK, dear friend. Keep us posted! hugs from afar, Debby

p.s. Thanks for all your comments on my recent posts. Things are fine at the school now, just a threat luckily, and the students have all settled back into the daily routine. I was at the dr. today and got the "okay" on the leg-bone. I can not start to use it a bit again, not really walking but some pressure, and can then build up to walking. He did say another 4 weeks on the crutches, which is longer then I thought, but I have made it this far, I can make it to the end of that too! thanks for caring so much.

You Go Girl!! Your things are just wonderful and I am sure you will do well. Better get busy making more inventory to fill those shelves because I know what you have now will be selling out the door.
