Has It Really Been That Long?

Have I really neglected my blog readers for so long? Sorry. As is my usual mode, I've been talking to you every day while I shower; but I get distracted by something else before I can get my words out here. Shame on me.

My month of May has been full. The Annarella Girl photo shoot kept me busy with sewing to get dresses and skirts ready.

Weren't the girls beautiful? They had fun and were so easy to work with. I've been trying to get my etsy shop up to date with the new items. I think I'm about 2/3 of the way there. Stop over here and see what Annarella Girl has for spring and summer.

Been working the facebook page www.facebook.com/annarellagirl . It has been a bit frustrating that I can't seem to attract more likes. So I'm running a little give away. Like and comment on a posting on the Annarella Girl page to be entered in a drawing for a free headband OR 25% off a dress or skirt of your choosing. Yes, shameless begging and bribing for more likes. It seems that if few people like or comment on the posts, the less people Facebook shares it with. So Like my page www.facebook.com/annarellagirl and comment on it so Facebook will think I'm popular. (Just like life, the popular get all the perks.)

And...I'm been working on a project for a new art center in Georgetown. They will have a small gift store in this new gallery and educational space, and that is what I'm involved with. So I've been busy contacting artisans with the hope that their work will be available for sale in the gift shop. I am in awe of the innovation and creativity of artisans. There is much awesome talent that is not getting enough exposure. The art center gift shop will give them exposure and a venue for sales.

So that's why I've been silent. Now, I'm not promising I'll be better about writing here in the month of March. Hopefully you will see me on facebook or visit me on etsy.  I leave you with one more pic.
