i can't believe this day has finally come. my little shop opens tonight (Sunday, Feb.1) at 9pm CST. The local shop is now open too. Rach & I are planning so much cuteness for the grand opening party this coming Friday night! it's going to be magical. Commercial Street is giving us a little ribbon cutting ceremony (isn't that sweet?) at 5pm and our party will run from 6-10.

Anyway….. I feel thankful. overwhelmed. shy. excited and so so inspired.
thank you for sharing this with us.

    HUGS πŸ™‚ Nora Anne

  • the shop looks so cute! canΒ΄t wait to see what you have for us in the online store. πŸ™‚

    i bet youΒ΄ll sold out everything really quickly. πŸ˜‰

  • Congats to you!

    The pictures are so beautiful, wish I lived close ebough to stop by and get some yummies but there is always your shop ;D

    Wishing all the best on this venture and a wonderful week.

  • Congrats, Elsie! What a wonderful, magical day for you!!!! Can’t wait until the online store goes live!!! I read your mom’s blog and it brought tears to my eyes!!! πŸ™‚ What a great family!!! Hope you have the most memorable, magical day EVER!!! xoxo

  • Oh my!! This is by far the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!! How creative and original is that?! How do I get a green card so I can come live next to your shop?? Good luck, good luck, good luck!!

  • I’m SO excited for your opening! I’m also really excited because I will be in your neck of the woods in March so I will be able to come see all of the cuteness!

  • Looks GREAT! Can’t wait to see more photos and to visit the online shop!! Congrats!!!

  • Yay!! Congratz! I wish i lived closer. πŸ™

    Your mom’s post was beyond sweet. We always know our family’s love us, but when they post or say things like that, it just makes life even better.

    Have a stellar, amazing, creative, day!

  • It makes my heart ache to know that I can’t come there this weekend. I feel like I’m at a disadvantage. hahaha because i can’t come until probably Spring Break. :[

    This…inspires me so much. I know you’ve probs heard this from everyone, but you’re inspiring so many of us to just push through it all and make it happen. You opening this store just proves that just because you’re an independent artist doesn’t mean you can’t make your life the best that it can possibly be.

    Congratulations Elsie. you’ve inspired me more than you will ever know.

    Have a blast at your opening tonight. :]
    <3

  • Oh and also, i read your Mom’s blog and I thought it was absolutely precious. You and I shared the hobby of the buttons. My Nana has tins and tins of buttons at her house and when I was really really little I would dump them all out and play with them for hours. I love the character that each one has.

    I just thought it was special that we have that in common. haha

  • I am sooo excited for you Elsie! Congratulations times 10!

    P.S. My 17 year old loves your artwork and aesthetic….of course she would, it’s adorable and so real.

    Best of Luck Cutie!

  • Elsie-congratulations! The shop looks awesome! I so wish that I lived closer so I could shop there. I can’t wait to visit your online store. All the best to you.

  • Congrats, Elsie!!

    Wishing I wasn’t on the West Coast because that looks like one incredibly cute and inspiring store!

  • Congrats on your store opening! I know your long hours and hard work will pay off! Best of luck to your new venture. πŸ™‚

  • i am so excited for you! Can’t wait to see the online store, i’ll have to wait til tomorrow with the time differences. i hope the unicorn kits don’t sell out!!

  • Oh Congratulations Hun!!!! I know exactly how you are feeling as I opened my dream shop 6 months ago πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy every min & have great sucess xxx

  • same problem here too, needing a password credentials…come on we have money in our hands & ready to shop! *hahahaha*

  • I too could not get into your online shop…*hopefully* you had a wonderful day and sold out of your super cute products! ; )

  • Sorry to inform you guys, I’m having the same problem. I’m even a member of typepad, thinking that may have helped, but didn’t. I’ll see it tomorrow though!! I’m not discouraged..maybe a little, but I’m coming back in full force!!

  • Cannot get in as well. Hope to see directions soon as I really really want to check it out! Good Luck with everything Elsie! Please keep us posted as to how to access.

    Thanks so much!
