Rachel and I had a blast at the sale today. Hamilton United Methodist Church made us feel most welcome and we had a great time meeting everyone and getting our name out there.
It was a great experience and we will be looking for more events to join up with, so we can keep meeting everyone and spreading the handmade joy.
We just wanted to thank everyone who came out and stopped by to say hello and see what we have to offer.
Please stay tuned to this spot on the internet, we'll be revamping the site, adding some of Rachel's wonderful creations (she makes hair bows, candles and soaps) to my crochet and sewn items. In the meantime, show us some love! If you met us at the fair today, leave us a message!
Michele and Rachel
I've been spending quite a bit of time working on new items for the shop, occasionally sharing a small sneak peek with you guys via my Instagram (ultdesigns) over the last several weeks. Have you been paying attention?
So, I decide that since my roadie is home for nine days, I would ask him to help me get the spring line photographed and then retake photos of some of the things I still have in stock. Know what we found out instead? We don't have a single camera in the house that is fully charged! LOLOLOL Leave it to us to not have a camera ready for a project like this! It's a pretty big project actually, since I still have a lot of things in stock, those things I will most likely put on sale this month, and I have a pretty sizable stash of spring items.
In other news, my roadie is home for nine whole days before heading out to the UK! The only things we have planned for sure are a vets appointment for our fur kids tomorrow afternoon, a spa day on Wednesday and a huge cookout on Saturday for family and friends, sort of like a late Easter dinner. We always have a lot of fun at these cookouts and it's a great chance for Danny to get to see everyone and relax in the company of good friends.
So, I am off to check on the status of camera charging so I can get to work showing you new things!!!!!! Please stop by and show some love, I love to read comments!
So, this came for yours truly today, my Uglee Little Things booth banner. *deep breath*
It's all coming true. I'm taking ULT out into the real world (it's been on the internet for a while, and I've had LOTS of custom orders, so it's been in the real world, but y'all know what I mean!) And I'll be honest, it makes me nervous and excited and it worries me and makes me happy. In short, I'm nothing but a bundle of nerves right now.
However, I do have a bunch of great people cheering me on, so I'm not quite a nervous as I could be. Danny, Daddy, Mama Carol, Ma Dorothy, Beth, Tyler, everyone who has ever bought anything from me:
I LOVE Y'ALL MORE THAN YOU KNOW! Thank you all so very much for believing in me and knowing before I ever did that I can do this!
I know it's been a long time since I posted here. I can be the worst at blogging.
But, those of you who know us, know there has been a HUGE change in our lives recently! And it's been very exciting!
We've moved our home base from the foothills of the Piedmont mountains to my hometown of Nashville, TN! YAY! It was a very hard decision for my hubby, Danny, and he misses the kids horribly. But, Nashville is pretty much the heart of the music industry and after being asked for so many years to come here and set up shop, he weighed out the pros and cons, made his decision and announced it. So, here we are!
There are so many wonderful things coming to Uglee Little Things that I have no idea where to begin, but I can assure you, the only direction we are moving in is UP. It took a little while to get settled into our new home, and we've been reconnecting with old friends, making new ones and enjoying ourselves and our new life here.
As I finish up a wonderfully colorful custom order, I am thinking of all the other designs I have knocking around in my head and all the new things I am learning and how I can hardly wait to show them to you all! I am sure you will love them as much as I do!
Join me as I start to gear up for fall and winter and new babies and new adventures. Soon I will be doing video blogs so all y'all can hear my super atrocious Southern accent. I will also be introducing you guys to the people behind the scenes here, the ones who have been cheering me on, and the ones I love. I will be glad to have y'all along for the ride!
Just a quick post to let everyone know that if you are wanting a special, custom made item for someone on your Christmas list, you'll need to place your order no later than Friday, 9 December 2011 in order for me to get it to you on time!
