Purse Hooks are here!

We now have purse hooks so your bag does not have to sit on the dirty floor of a restaurant, bar, or any other public place. Not only is this more sanitary but it is so much more safe. Check them out here! We will be adding hooks continuously so you can have one to match all your bags.

Then head on over to Tricia's Dish where we are having a giveaway! Good luck.

New Jobs!

Both my daughter and my son have found jobs! Best part - both are working in the fields they want to be working in. Mom could not be happier or more proud. It took a lot of work, a lot of patience, and plenty of time but in the end it paid off.

Way to go Jessica and Nick!!!

Startup Nation Hosting Competition

Once again Start Up Nation is hosting a home based business competition. Please vote for Blue Orchid by following this link (hint: you can vote every day)!

We have had numerous requests for our Jasmine envelope clutch to have a closure of some sort. We listened and now Jasmine sports a recessed zipper! She still folds over but now all your stuff is really secure. She is also a bit larger to accommodate more stuff;)

Stay tuned...she will be available on our site soon.

So much is new

Taking a break from blogging allowed me to focus on many new and exciting features. Our site is now a fully functional, safe and secure e-commerce site. Thank you to Leila and team at Lighting Bug Designs. We have new designs, new fabrics, and are now available in 3 stores. Check out our where to shop link on the site.

I now write for the Examiner as the Cleveland Budget Fashion Examiner. Lots of fun! Take a look at all my articles. Have an article idea or a store you think I should write about let me know!

Fall sneak peak...
