I know you may think that I have disappeared from the BLOG world but not true!!!!! I know it has been a while but if you remember back when I posted my aprons and told you that it would be a SURPRISE about where you could buy one.....well it is time to tell ALL....I was in the process of purchasing a business (of course escrow and all the paperwork take WAY longer than you think) anyway I closed escrow on August 15th (mind you this was all going on while planning and carrying out a WEDDING for my daughter on August 10th) call me CRAZY!!!! OK so anyway I am now the PROUD owner of "Primped Salon & Boutique" located in La Verne....YES I was a hairstylist once upon a time (no longer ) but this may be the best of both worlds for me...I had been wanting to open a business for a long time and was alittle nervous about it all, then I began to think about the fact that I have two daughters who are in school and Amanda will graduate in December from Citrus College Cosmetology...YEAH! SOOooooo they can work in the salon and I can run the boutique....good idea, so my search began and I was told by a friend of mine who knew I was looking for a place about this Salon for sale...well long story short I bought it, all of the stylists (8) have stayed on with me as I have remodeled this shop from head to toe...I have created a blog to try to keep track of the process and also so I can share with all of my friends about my new found venture! Of course I have many hand made items in the boutique (not all made by me either) from many creative women that I have met over the past year or more! SOooo stop waiting and go to my site and check it out http://www.primpedsalon.blogspot.com/ keep checking in to see all of the new changes and for our GRAND OPENING EVENT coming soon!
Here are some pics of my goodies that I made for my Sweet & Sinister swap buddy Cupcake DD....you will also see then all wrapped up and ready to go! I got to meet with my Swap buddy Julie which was WAY COOL she lives close by me so we met and swapped in person....so nice to meet the people you swap with, and the Funny thing was that she knows SCRAPPY JESSI...well I am beginning to think EVeryOne knows JESSI...anyway she was meeting up with the AAA group after the event on Sat and going to the Santa Monica flea market, I was so sorry to miss out on this but just too many things I needed to do. I will post all my Sweet & Sinister gift I received later (that means that I need to take some pics for you)HA!
