Opening Day Postponed

July 22, 2008

Unfortunately, I have decided to move opening day to October 1st, 2008. I could have still made our upcoming deadline of August 1st, but I just wouldn’t be happy knowing I didn’t have the chance to properly review everything before it was posted.

It is still going to be fantastic and the October deadline will give me plenty of time to get everything perfect! Thanks for all the support and well wishes!

Moving along nicely

June 25, 2008

So we’re getting closer to having the website design completed. Not quite, but getting there.

I’ve been talking over the past few days with different vendors. I’ve gotten such a good reception; it’s made me even more anxious and excited! I may be too optimistic, but I’ve set an opening day…August 1st! (My mommy’s birthday!) We’ll see if we can stick to it!

If you know anyone who creates things baby-related, send them my way! 🙂

P.S. My bean said her first word: doggie! All that “mama” and “dada” and doggie is what she says…go figure!

Well…things change

June 4, 2008

So, after a restless night of sleep, I’ve decided to change the name of the shop (yes, already).  It’s going to be Princess Frills and Dragon Tails.  I really wanted the store to be something both boys and girls could identify with and I didn’t think Baby Frills and Fairy Tails got that message across.  Plus, I felt like if I didn’t put an animal in front of Tails everyone would just think I was an idiot and misspelled tales.  With the store being a daycare too, I just didn’t want any little boy to be like “I don’t wanna go to the girly frilly place” and I could see that happening.

So…………..here’s the new logo…and hopefully the last!

\"Every Child Should Live Happily Ever After\"

Well, this is the beginning of what I hope will be an extremely exciting chapter in my life. I am starting the long, tedious journey to starting my own business. I’m going to try and jot down notes and stories here and there about the process…hopefully there will be more ups than downs!

My agenda at the moment pretty much consists of writing a business plan. If you’ve never done this before, or even looked at the format for that matter, it’s going to be a long task. It will probably be the only thing on my agenda for a few weeks.

On a much happier, and exciting note…I am going to start doing some arts and crafts that will be sold in my “virtual shop” (a.k.a. On the website once it’s up and running!). The items will be made for baby rooms since that’s what the store will be selling — imagine that!

I know this may not be an incredibly exciting blog, but I hope that in my moments of frustration and time when I’m discouraged, I can read over happier, more optimistic moments in this journey and remember the dream.

Also, I’m going to try and post pictures on each post, just to liven up my rants! I’ll take photos of things boutique-related when I can, but if not, then it will something that was a glimmer of inspiration while I was writing.

On this particular post, my inspiration is my family. My beautiful baby girl, Lainey, and my wonderful and incredibly supportive husband, Eric. Unfortunately for everyone, there will be lots of pictures of these two…they are my inspiration in pretty much everything I do, so when I don’t have anything new and interesting, I will resort back to my default…my two loves!

Smooches

Wish me luck…………………………………………
