Spring Shopping Soiree

A HUGE thank you goes out to my SIL, Marci. This past Saturday she generously hosted a Spring Shopping Soiree at her house, which became the first-ever showing of The Sharp Needle. Basically, Marci invited me and several other friends that are building home-based businesses to come and show off our goodies and enjoy some great food. The main goal was to generate interest, spread the word, and get a few sales out of the deal. I can only speak for myself, but it was a BIG success for The Sharp Needle! Not only did I get orders for the infant car seat cover and canopy sets I have been working on, but I also sold some hair clippies, onesies, bibs, and other fun stuff.

I also have to give a HUGE thank you to my mom and sister. Mom has been so supportive and encouraging as I try to start The Sharp Needle, and has put up with endless questions and frustations in the whole process. (Check out Mom's new book here...shameless plug, I know! :-) Heehee!) My sister, Megan, has also been very supportive and spent all night baking for the Soiree...the best pastry chef I know! Let me know if you have a shower or wedding or party coming up, because she makes the best cakes, cupcakes, fruite tarts, and the list goes on and on and on. (Yes yes, another shameless plug!)

I'm excited to show off the pretties I've been working on the last couple of months, so here are some pictures...
