Blog Problems

I am still having issues with this blog. Do you know it is impossible to reach a human being at google? I cannot even find a working e-mail address. All e-mails sent from google are the do not reply kind! Anyone have any ideas or suggestions...all are welcome. In the meantime I am fighting fire with fire and am setting up housekeeping at wordpress. As soon as I am set up there I will post a link here and hope I don't lose anyone. Of course I will post all information in our newsletter and on the web site.


On another brighter note...recent surveys and discussions within the retail segment are predicting that Summer/Spring 09 will bring much needed relief to retailers and to consumers. So with that in mind I have a new Spring bag that I cannot wait to start using myself:)

What a beautiful day

Wow it's November and I actually was able to walk to the polls to vote yesterday! Came home and found my blog was marked and disabled as spam. It seems there is an automated system that can experience false positives and will actually shut you down. I freaked out that's for sure. I guess if you are reading this the matter has been resolved!

Another beautiful day today. I am off to take more pics of the fall bags and will post some here in a bit.

Where did the time go?

So the Summer seemed to fly by and I am just finally settling down after preparing for two huge shows within 7 days of each other. I cannot believe it's November and in less than 48 hours we will have a new president. Living in Ohio we get bombarded by political ads and to be honest I am ready for this to be over! What's really hard to believe is that the holidays are quickly approaching. Cannot think about that right now.

Yes I spent the majority of the Summer months designing and sewing a Fall/Winter '08 line. All in preparation for the line's debut at Sunday in the Valley in Las Vegas held October 19. Just the week before the girls of Blue Orchid attended the Today's Bride Show in Cleveland. That was a lot of fun. We met so many beautiful and friendly brides. We left that show simply exhausted but in a good way. Just a few days later I left for the show in Vegas. The Palms hotel and casino hosted the event and again just a lot of fun. I met some amazing women. The event was in support of the no kill shelter of Nevada. I met the organizations president and all I can say is what a charming woman. More on the event at a later time...

Now it's time to share our Fall line with you. So much is happening in the Blue Orchid studio. One great thing is we have been spotted by Lucky Magazine! Check us out here.

Look for a newsletter coming out this week. It's packed with ideas on your wardrobe and what we have been and will be up to. A special offer for brides will be noted there as well. If you have not signed up already be sure to!
