They Keep Getting Smaller...

...And cuter too! We just finished this bag and mailed it off today. It was a medium size bag, but we had a request to make it slightly smaller, so instead of 10 X 15, this is 10 X 13. I love this bag!

...paid for bags at the FHOWC Bazaar but have not gotten their uniforms to us yet:
S. Gerber
E. Williams (2 bags)
S. Corrigan
J. Pullig
I have emailed all but one of these ladies, but haven't heard back from anyone. I know that it was a holiday and everything, but if you need your bags for Christmas we will need your uniforms ASAP.
Thanks so much!!!

Good Press

Here is the article that was in the Killeen Daily Herald on Saturday:
It also ran in the Ft. Hood Herald today (Wednesday). I have to say a HUGE thank you to Laura, for writing such a great article about our company. It feels like more than two years of hard work are finally starting to pay off- I could not be happier! Thank you Fort Hood, you are the BEST!!!

Working out the kinks...

No comments:
We were lucky enough to be featured in the Saturday Killeen Daily Herald, and I am so thankful for the exposure! Just in the last day, I have gotten so many emails, it has been great- however I am not used to so many local requests and orders. I just wanted to ask all of those at Ft. Hood interested in a bag to be patient with me as I figure out the best way to handle local orders. In the past, I'd say 98% of my business was done through the mail- so many people asking to drop off uniforms and pick up orders is new for me. So if you can, the easiest way to get your uniform to me is just to drop it in the mail (parcel post will still get to me the next day and will only cost a few dollars), but if you need to drop it off in person, just email me- I'm happy to work something out. Same goes for completed bags- its easiest for me to mail them back to you, but if you'd prefer to pick them up instead (especially for those orders that will be ready just before Christmas), just let me know, and we can figure something out. Again, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their patience and understanding as I get the logistics all worked out.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

...was so much fun. I enjoyed being able to talk with so many of our customers- it was great. We were SO busy I only managed to take ONE picture!!

By the end of the day Sunday we only had 3 purses left, so I have listed them on eBay. They are ready to ship and can be personalized, too.


Happy Halloween
