One Day Down, Two to Go!

Wow, today was a great opening day - especially considering the weather, road construction and stolen signs. Thanks to everyone who braved the storm.

Here's a few pics of some fun things at the show!
Baked with Love Aprons
by Ashley Evanson

She makes each of these aprons at home and they are of the best quality. They'll make you feel cute and sassy while you cook! She's done oodles of great designs.

Cakes and Banners
by Devany Niederhauser

She started making banners and cakes for her first child's first birthday. She likes to make parties extraordinary with great themes and lots of details. It was hard to find what she wanted in the store, so she started making it all herself.


by Michele Goaslind

If you'd like something fun to perk up your kitchen - Mimiware is the place to go. She's got so many fun designs. Michele also does some amazing doll beds and bedding.

Dear Miss Alice,
by Heidi Glauser

She's done lots of things for this show in addition to what you see above. Her button magnets, rings, and hair elastics are unique and fun. Her vintage cake, jewelry, whatnot stands and watch necklaces are each one-of-a-kind!

And that, my friends is a very small fraction of what you'll find at our Spring Boutique. Come check it out.

More Goodies!

So, we've spent the better part of the last three days putting this show together (not to mention all the "before" tasks) and our brains are a little fried, so forgive me if there are absolutely no frills on this post. But, I must say that the boutique is looking fabulous!

Here are the winners in our first two giveaways:

The de Roda Family wins the frame!

Jamilyn Bell wins the $20 boutique gift certificate!

Congratulations! Just find me - Lauri - or ask for me at the checkout and we'll get you your prizes. Thanks for putting us on your blogs. We look forward to meeting you at the show.

THREE Last Minute Giveaways!

Okay people, we've had three of our vendors offer some fun prizes!

#1 - a set of watercolor notecards by our own Charla Barton!

#2 - a "Happy Mother's Day" banner by Devany!

#3 - a $20.00 gift certificate from Pear and Peonies to be used at our boutique!

Everyone who comments is entered in the giveaway, but there is one catch - there has to be at least 10 comments today for the giveaway to happen! Get your friends and co-workers etc. to enter ASAP! I'll post the winners tomorrow morning bright and early!

Two Giveaways!

Starting tomorrow, we'll be posting some pictures of some of the fun things you'll find at "Such a Nice Surprise". Today, however, we have two giveaways to announce.

Giveaway #1

$20.00 certificate to spend at our show! Here's how you enter this drawing: post our flyer (you'll find it in the previous post) on your blog or mention our show in a post and put a link to ours, then leave a comment on this post telling us the address of your blog so we can check it out. We'll then enter you in this prize giveaway. We'll randomly select one winner from all those.

Giveaway #2

Valerie Rich and her daughter were new additions to our Christmas show and it was definitely a win-win situation. They do fabulous floral arrangements and some frames and cute magnets. They have agreed to give one of their great frames to one lucky winner. Unfortunately, Valerie had to leave town today and so wasn't able to get a picture to me, but I assure you, it's nice! Anyone who comments on this post is entered. Again, a random drawing will determine the winner.

We'll post the winners on Tuesday or Wednesday.
