Show and Tell Monday

It's Monday--time for Show and Tell again!

I've just returned from the most awesome Make Mine Pink "Getting Down to Business" Retreat in Williamsburg, VA. I flew in on Thursday with my good friend, Lori from Katie's Rose Cottage. Once there, we met up with about 50 of our sweet and hilarious Pink Sisters and had the time of our lives! The weekend was filled with fun, great speakers, food, shopping, and more laughter than should be allowed! There were displays to set up and vote on (Eileen from Forget-Me-Not Dreams was the winner!), contests, games, chocolate, and networking when we were not in seminars. Words cannot describe how invaluable this trip was for my business and how glad I am that I went. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera and have no pictures to show. But, the good news is that a professional photographer was on hand for the entire retreat and took a billion pictures (at least!). As soon as those are available, I will post a few.


NEW Products in my line:

Teapot Pillow--Romantically Roses

Dressed To A Tea Cozy--Romantically Roses
