I forgot to tell you!!!

I can't believe I forgot to tell everyone that my new website is finally up and running!!! I swear this has been a work in progress for over a year. You have to go and take a peek and tell me what you think!
I have learned so much while working on this! And had a lot of help along the way. I can't wait for the day where I can hand 100% of the design, photography, editing, etc. over to someone else. But as the business is just beginning to grow, I seem to be the jack of all trades when it comes to this area of my business. I'm by no means an expert, but I think I've learned enough to get by.

So now on to the next step, marketing!! I'm so excited to start showing my clothing line at in home Trunk Shows. It is such a fun way for moms to get together, have a girls night out and do a little shopping. It is like installing a children's boutique right in your house! Every girls dream, right? So, if you know anyone that is interested in hosting a Molly O Trunk Show, send them our way.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet tonight. It has been a long week. I'm fighting off a migraine as I type, but have a little more work to do tonight. I did however just tuck in my 2 year old and sang her a lulabye. She actually put her head on my shoulder and fell asleep. We have nicknamed her Eloise because of all the shenanigans she gets into during the day, most recently painting large pictures with nail polish all over the girl's new comforters and throw pillows. BUT, when she puts her head on my shoulder, she turns into the sweetest curly haired angel ever. Those are the moments I will cherish. Good night and I hope everyone has sweet angel dreams.

Where did the summer go?

The summer went by in a blur. And I say blur because having 3 kiddies at home all day, everyday, tends to make your eyes cross. But now that 2 of the 3 are firmly seated back in their desks, I can finally get a little extra work done. By extra work, I mean catching up on email, my blog, message boards, etc. You know, all the important things in life :)

With school back in session, it seems that the Molly O customers of the world are ready to shop! I've had a sudden surge in website traffic, purchases and inquiries. I can't tell you how excited I am to get our new line in everyone's hands! Speaking of, I'm so excited to say that Molly O Designs was featured in a very fab and trendy magazine this week called BLVDS Las Vegas. If you like in Las Vegas, try to pick up a copy at Borders. It is the perfect magazine for posh moms in the area. I was excited to see that 3 of my photos/designs were used throughout the magazine!
You can go to my website to read an little blurb from the article. And maybe just to make things a little interesting, the first person that can tell me which 3 pages my photos can be found on will win one of our new Creative Clips. If you don't live in Vegas and can't get to the magazine, take a guess, you never know you might get it right! It is Vegas after all. LOL.

So what else is new? Well, we are getting ready to kick off our Trunk Show Fall season! So if anyone is interested in hosting Molly O Trunk Show (in person or online), make sure you contact us soon. Our calendar is filling up quickly!

And just for the fun of it, I have to show you the photos I took a few nights ago. Our family was having a little bonding time watching the sun set from our backyard. It felt like the last quiet moment before all the back to school activities consumed us. The beauty of the sunset quieted all 3 of our little wiggle worms. I don't know what I enjoyed more, the sunset or the beautiful looks on all their sweet little faces. It was definitely a night I will remember long after they are all grown.
