Spring Boutique on the Lake

Apr 21, 2013 by

So the time came to do another craft show! Same place as the holiday one, but with twice as many vendors! We learned a lot from the first craft show, like not wanting to be up until 1am the night before crafting the last of your flowers. Yeah, that was definitely out. Instead, this time we were up until 1am finishing up other things. Gwen had things to finish pricing and tagging, while I was working on our displays. That was the other thing we learned, displays are a good thing. But they can be so expensive if you buy them from a store. So, with a little creative engineering, help from my dad (he worked the saw for me), craft foam, velour, self-adhesive felt, dowels, and dangly doo-dads; I made a set of...

Craft Show: Holiday Boutique on the Lake...

Nov 27, 2012 by

Well, it didn’t take very long before we found our very first craft show to attend! When it comes to keeping busy, Gwen and I seem to be the ultimate champions at it. After all the work we put into getting the Etsy Shop up and running, we had originally expected to take a small breather. Yeah, we should have known better. No sooner do we have the shop up, we make our first sale! Definitely extremely exciting, because being the realist I am sometimes, I had not expected a sale on the first day. I figured it would take some serious marketing to get to that point. Gwen on the other hand not only expected it, but has a dream that we will sell out of flowers before the holidays. Now, I’m inclined...

Welcome to our Etsy!

Nov 26, 2012 by

It’s been a long road as we dreamed up this crazy idea back in January of 2012, but it has finally happened. We finally did it. Products have been finished, photographs have been taken, and we are officially… OPEN FOR BUSINESS! That’s right, we have officially opened our shop on Etsy this Cyber Monday, and we’re super excited to share it with you! We’re starting off with just Kanzashi flowers, but we’re working steadily on more products to offer you. So definitely give us a bookmark and keep an eye out, because it’s going to be so amazing you won’t be able to absorb it all in one sitting! Tell your friends, tell your family, heck, tell your cat (like he’d listen anyway though), Dancer’s Dream Boutique is ready to get rockin’ n’ rollin’!...

Designs Complete!

Nov 18, 2012 by

Okay, it’s official! I am done messing around with the coding and graphics of the site, it’s all set and ready to go! So I really hope that you enjoy the appearance of it, and that things are easy to read. If you have any issues viewing the site, please let us know. C: Now that the site is done though, that means it’s time to focus on crafting! The launch date for our Etsy Shop is going to be Cyber Monday! That’s the Monday after Thanksgiving, so we’re working fast and furious to make sure we meet that deadline! I promise you, it’s going to be totally worth it! It’s going to start off with Kanzashi Flowers, but eventually we’ll also have some petal skirts up for sale as well. We’re also playing...

Under Construction!

Nov 16, 2012 by

Just a general heads-up to say that this site is under construction! So at the moment should things seem utterly broken (and they probably are lol), to please just be patient as we work through the initial building process. By Cyber Monday everything will be up and running, and there will be gorgeous things in the Etsy shop to dazzle your minds with! We hope to see you there when we launch! Well… kind of. xD...
