Just a little story.

Last night when I was at Fran's working on our business I did the random drawing and told her the number was 15 and that BO had won. We got talking and she asked me if I read how Bo got her name and I said no so she told me. I went to Bo's site today to read about it and it is a funny story and that got me thinking. Fran and I have a story of how we got our names. As many of you know we are named after our grandmothers. My mom's mom was Fran and my dad's was Fern. Now I don't remember how old I was when I was told this story but...when we were born I came out white and a little peaked ( I have always been anemic) and Fran was nice and rosey. Well, my dad told my mom he wanted Fran to be called Fern (his mom's name).Mom was sure it was because she came out prettier (she probably still is). Mom didn't think that was right so she SWITCHED the names. I must say at first I was a little hurt when I heard the story but now I just make sure I take my vitamins so I can have nice rosey cheeks and then no one can tell us apart!! HA! Have a great day.

We Have A Winner

Bo won our Give A Way!!! We used the random number system on line ( sorry no time to write names and put them in a bowl). If you don't know who Bo is go visit her. She is just a sweetie and Twin and I just love her. Congrats!

We want to thank all of you for entering. We are having our Open House at Fran's this weekend so we will be sure to post a lot of pictures.

Lipstick Jungle

Twin and I happen to LOVE Lipstick Jungle. If you feel the same way go to nbc and send them an email so they don't cancel the show. I just hate it when I get into a show and then it's gone. Don't know if it will help but please, give it a try. Thanks.

Having a G-R-E-A-T give away!!

We set up our new booth yesterday....Oh, I'm sorry I'm gettin' ahead of myself. Here let the journey begin......

First of all Twin and I would like to THANK all of you for your words of encouragement. We think we have the best neighbors in blogland. We love all of you :o) This is the night of the Open House at our girlfriend's. We are loading up the car. What a beautiful day it was. Great day to start a business ;o) We did very well and everyone wants to come to our Open House at Fran's.

Better take two pictues just in case! If one twin doesn't like herself than ya have to hit the delete button!

Now all the rest of the pictures will be of our new Craft Booth. There's a town about 15 miles away and you can rent out a booth. The place is called Crafter's Village. We thought we would give it a try. The manager ordered something before we could even unpack the first box so we felt good about that.

They are having a special "Christmas Open House" today so we got in at the right time. The manager and owner told us they thought we would be very successful. They don't have anything like we are doing. The booth had nothing in it and we had to make our own selves. We go some wood at Menard's for 69 cents. Then we used contact paper. We would like to doll it up better but we didn't have a lot of time.

This is one of my favorite sayings. It has been a big hit. This one is on tile.

Isn't that umbrella so CUTE!! This one is a real bugger to make but worth it. This one is on canvas.

Love this one too. We thought we would put our stuff on tile and canvas to start out. We will be doing wall words too.

This one is really pretty when you get it in a large size and put it on the wall above your bed.

Just a sweet little pumpkin. We have ordered color vinyl and are just waiting for it to come in.

Oh, how true is this ladies? Lately we have been putting in LONG hours and all I want is a long bubble bath and of course my nightly glass of wine ;o)

And there you have it. We hope you enjoyed sharing a little part of our journey.

As for the give away. This is what is it.....We are givng away a wall word for your wall (not on canvas or tile) You may choose any color that we have and it can be any quote or something personalized.

We would love for you to let us know what quotes or favorite saying you enjoy so we can get some more ideas for our business.
We're doing coasters today and they are really fun. Putting Faith, Family, Friends and Future on them. Then some will be Dream, Imagine, Wish and Believe.
Good Luck to EVERYONE.
We will be working on a site to be able to purchase from us very soon. If you have something you want or any questions just email us. Thanks.

Takin' Care of Business

We had a DREAM and we just needed to BELIEVE. We are starting a home based business and we want "Our Neighbors" to be the first to know.
The boxes have arrived and now we need to put this "Big Boy"or as we like to tell our kids it's "Mom's Money Maker" together. Okay, maybe we need our hubbies for this one. HELP!!

Now if they can put the stand together...the directions are in Chinese! Once we got this up and running, it was just our luck NO book came with the soft ware..........grrrrrrrr. It was extremely hard and it took days to figure it out but........we are happy to say we are up and running. We are SO PROUD. Now come and look at what we have been up to.

Our new business is called "Twice As Nice Lettering". What do you think? We are making vinyl wall words. We have always loved them and decided to make our own. We put these on tiles and canvas frames. We have an Open House tonight at our friend's house who honors women with home based businesses. We will let you know how it goes.
Let us know HONESTLY what you think. We will be having a give away and details will be posted soon.
Thanks so much for you patience. We're off to our first debut.
