Sorry I've been absent from the blog for so long - things have really been crazy around here. More updates on that later, I hope! For now, cast your vote and I'll be back to blogging soon!

4am - wake up. 5:30am - Leave for Calera. 6am - Arrive in Calera and set up tent #1. 6:30am - Leave for Ross Bridge. 7:15am - Arrive at Ross Bridge and set up tent #2! 12pm - Break down booth #2 1pm - Arrive back in Calera 3pm - Jason arrived at Calera to help break down tent and booth #1...then drive home. Arrived home and CRASHED at approximately 4pm!
That makes for a grand total of 12 hours non stop and 2 solid hours of driving! Wow....busy day!
I did take a brief nap which has at least allowed me to stay up until 11am, but I'm on my way to crashing again! Check back here tomorrow for more updates on today's craft fair adventures and a brief review of each fair!
Here is a full view of my tent...I didn't realize until looking at these pics that it was a little lopsided! I'm sure no one else noticed either. Looks pretty good if I do say so myself. I'm excited about setting up on June 20th since I'll have my full inventory available!
Here are two of my cute little customers who were sweet enough (AND well behaved enough!) to let me take a picture of them wearing their new digs! It is always such an honor when a customer wants to let their child wear their outfit RIGHT THEN! Of course mom was concerned about the bows not matching, but when you're cute, you're cute, right? Matching bow or not! And yes, believe it or not they are twins! Double the cute-ness!

Well, this compilation will probably turn into a jumbled mess on the screen, but I was having so many issues making a collage with them that I kind of gave up. I'll attempt that again when I don't have the threat of two shows in one day lurking over me, but for now this will have to do!
I just wanted to give everyone a sneak peek at what is to come for Fall 09. I took a poll to find out what moms of boys wanted to see more of in the way of fabrics this fall. The result was as I expected...more checks & plaids and more solid corduroys. So, I have oodles of ginghams to choose from, as well as some AWESOME embroidered corduroy and cord solids. I also added two beautiful brushed twill plaids. One, you may recognize from Fall 2008, but the pale blue one is new! I of course, had to bring back the Auburn & Alabama plaids as well! The Woodland Camo is our only whimsical print for boys this fall, but there are lots to come for Spring 2010! I think with the options given, the possiblities are endless!
I love getting these pictures in my email! Especially when this is the first thing I see in the morning...helps put a little smile on my face!
You may recognize this little face from our Spring 2009 photo shoot (plus those ruffled legs at the top of the blog belong to her!) Sarah Kate modeled for SDD back in January when we did our photoshoot. Then, her mom held a trunk show in her home and earned several free & half priced outfits! (like that little plug for hosting a show?! ha!) This was one of them and she looks so pretty in it! I especially like the color on her and that smile is to die for!
Thanks Rhonda, for sharing pictures of your precious daughter!
