A New Look For Raggedy Dollys

Hi All
I know it's been a while since I wrote a post here but I have been very busy lately. I have had a lot of custom doll orders which I do enjoy making special for my customers.

I have also been getting ready for a local craft show that I am doing with my friend Glenna we are sharing a booth at Stock & Stuffers Craft Show over in Fullerton, Ca. The booth came out great Glenna is very good at displaying and she out did herself with this set up. I forgot to take my camera at set up but I will be going back to restock our booth and I will get a photo then. I will post it here for you all to see.

Well on top of all that I had a new logo, backround and buttons made for my Raggedy Dollys website. I have been busy adding all the new graphics on my webpages. Go over and take a look: Raggedy Dollys Post here and let me know what you think of my new look. I really like it, it is so bright and lively and colorful. But let me know what you think?

Angie of Heartland Graphics made my new graphics for me. Go take a look at her website she does great work. Thank You Angie!!!

I will be updating my Dandelion Darlings Shoppe on June 1st I will do a post to remind you all.

Thank You all for stopping by : )

The Eagles!!!

I just want to let everyone know that I will be getting your orders out this week. I have had a busy last week.

My friend Lynn and her hubby Don came out to visit us from North Carolina and she had VIP Tickets for all of us for the entire weekend at the Stage Coach Festival in Indio. Here is the poster for the festival


I am sad to say I had a street faire to go sell my crafts at in Carlsbad on Sunday and we were not able to attend all three days of the festival. So we decided to go on friday so we could work on Sat. and do our show on Sunday. This is who we got to go see on friday The Eagles:


We were excited and on top of that we got to see John Fogerty he was great he sang all of his songs. We had so much fun we sang and danced to all the songs and we had special seating with those VIP tickets we got to sit up close and we were able to see everyone.

So because we lost a day of work on Friday (It was well worth it!!!) we had to work all day and night on Saturday to finish up all of our products. We got no sleep that night because we had to met with our friend Glenna and her hubby on Sunday morning at 4:30 A.M. to set up our booth.

We tried something new at this show, we shared a booth with 4 other couples and it worked out!!! We all had really good sales, the booth looked like a Little Country Store. I forgot to take my camera with me, (I seem to do that a lot lately I forgot it at my Grandaughter's Bithday Party now how bad is that?) I wish I had taken it so I could have posted a photo here for you all to see.

The booth looked great we had a variety of products for our customers to choose from and we had lines coming in the booth and at the register. It was so easy with all of us setting up and tearing down. We had a fun day at the craft faire we just met the other 3 couples that morning and everything went smooth.

We just didn't know what to expect being the first time doing a project this big with so many people involved. So we are all doing the same thing again in Nov. the show is the first Sunday in Nov. I will post about the show then.

Today I tried to sleep in but my grandaughter woke me up around noon I wanted to sleep in all day. Yeah like that was going to happen around here LOL!!! I felt I should sleep a whole day to make up for the day of sleep I missed. But as we all know you can't make up for the lost day by trying to sleep the next day it just doesn't work that way.

Anyway I will be back to full swing by tomorrow and get all my orders out this week. Thank You for your patience : ) I will also be adding more raggedies on my website by the end of the week. I will post when I do.

Thank You for visiting and letting me share my adventures with you all!!!
