Studio Update

It has been a busy couple of weeks having to deal with a persistent sinus infection and a sprained ankle. But it's not all bad...Blue Orchid Bags are now available at Rovals Artisan Boutique in Strongsville, Ohio! The boutique is having a grand reopening in July with featured artists and a new web site. We are fortunate to be the featured artist this July! If you are in the Cleveland area be sure to stop by and say hello to Rochelle.

What a great response to the virtual bag parties so far. It looks like late July will be the debut for the first party! If you are interested please contact me and I will forward more information to you.

And there are new bags on our Etsy site. Take a look! And last did you get an opportunity to read my article for Etsy? If not take a moment and let me know what you think.

A Tranquil Moment

After dropping my son off at school, making beds, washing dishes and two loads of laundry, and the typical picking up around the house I took a moment to water my hanging baskets. It's 8:00 am and it's an absolutely stunning morning. The air is warm almost that perfect temp, the sky is blue not a cloud in site, the air is still and the only sound I hear is the birds. I love this. I find mornings like this therapeutic and rejuvenating. I wish every morning could be like this. What a great way to start the day.

Blue Orchid is participating in the "Here Comes the Sun" online market at Poppytalk. Take a moment and visit us there. Mention Poppytalk and you get free shipping;) Also stop by Hip Mama's Place, leave a comment on her review of Blue Orchid and be entered into the giveaway for one of our bags!

Featured on Hip Mama's Place!

That's right Blue Orchid Bags has been reviewed by Hip Mama's Place. What an honor! I spent some time reading the posts, the reviews, and all the great information I found on the web site and suggest you do too.

As a mom I know we sometimes find it difficult to find time for ourselves let alone our wardrobe. But we all know how important it is to take care of mom because as the saying goes, "if mama ain't one is happy"! So hats off to Jocelyn and the team over at Hip Mama's Place for bringing great style to all the hip mama's out there.
