Spring Market, River Market and everything in Between

So we survived Spring Market! I must say that I def learned a whole bunch (next year I will have a dolly!!) and I'm pretty positive that we would do it again. We had a LOT of help from friends and family members who helped us work the booth, babysit Pearson and tear down on the last day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Great visit with Brian and Nolan Wade (Mr P's best buddy)

We felt like we had some good sales and got our name out there to a lot of people who had not heard of us at all. We tracked our website hits and Facebook "friends" before and after the show and were pleased with the increase in traffic. I was amazed that our #1 best seller was overall youth tees--even over adult tees and onesies.
Youth Tees #1!!!

 We got the message loud and clear that you guys want some short sleeve Bulldawg and Warhawk shirts.
  We are now gearing up to do the downtown River Market on Saturday,April 6th from 10am-4pm. I have no idea how it will go, but it sounds like there is going to be tons of vendors there and the weather is suppose to be pretty.
  We will have our new Adult Crawfish Shirt there as well as many other designs for babies and youth.   In case you didn't know, I'm 7 months pregnant (with a girl this time!)so modeling the shirts for our website/Facebook/Instagram is not an option! Haha. Luckily, good ole Brent doesn't mind taking one for the team and posing for me!
 
Hey Hubs---Show me some Teeth!

Not to embarrass him too bad, but the hubs looks good in his t-shirt and jeans!! ;) whoop whoop!! Come see us!
   Meanwhile, I've been painting on ceiling tiles for Shelby's Wish for the pediatric floor of St Francis Hospital. Each kid room will have a fun unisex design for the kids to look at.

 I also squeezed in a kitchen backsplash for a lady that is hand painted and fired on ceramic tile. She wanted a Louisiana Gumbo scene.  So voila~!

 I love all my jobs and feel lucky to make a living doing what I enjoy!! I've also got a strong urgency to wrap all these loose ends up before Little Baby Girl Compton (still no name... ) comes. I know then, that my time will really be limited for awhile.



Until next time!!
