I think I forgot how to blog. Yikes!!! But here goes and it will be along post !! It must have been fear or the perfectionist in me or who knows what??? Why did I not post along the journey of creating Blissbee??? HMMM I guess I was afraid to jinks the magic. And it has been pure magic. So here is the picture unveiling and and more of the story . Our water damaged condo in Santa fe (which never felt like home) finally got repaired and finished in April. Cal did all the work traveling back and forth between Bisbee and Santa fe, working on both the condo and the store . On his last trip to Santa fe finalizing repairs he listed the place for sale we felt only a glimmer of hope in selling in this market BUT!!! Low and behold while on the road back to Bisbee the listing agent called him and said there is an an offer coming in!!! We were shocked !! Of course we accepted and closed last week . By by Condo !! What a relief!!! and what a further message that Bisbee was meant to be our new home . Cal and I then put all our efforts into the boutique and also moving into a permeant rental as we had been moving every few weeks from one vacation rental to the next . . My studio was the first to be finished in the back room of the boutique . We also found out that not only is our boutique the old funeral home ( hauntings too) but my studio is the embalming room- ya gotta love it!!! The main boutique room and bathroom followed. Soft linen, whites, tongue and grove and a hint of pale blue cover the walls . In the months of April and May art work began to flood in from all the wonderful artist who agreed to allow me to feature their work . Yummy!!!!! everyday has been like christmas as boxes arrived- except Cal said "YOU CAN NOT KEEP ANYTHING"!!! Anyway the opening kept getting delayed as we had NO idea how long this would take . A super visit from Lorrie and Bruce really helped as I was feeling a bit frozen and overwhelmed and asking myself " Who do you think you are ? and "Can we do this"???? I really needed Lorrie to see it all as a big adventures like this in my life just does not seem real or possible with out her input and blessing. After their visit I was able to pull it together and with the permits ok-ed and the wonderful new sign up which was designed by Ericka it started to feel real. We still have yet to launch the web site which Sara at Sadie Olive is almost done with and it will feature all the news of Blissbee along with this blog. Well here are images . Much love to all of you for your support and I PLAN to stop by and say hi to you all as I have missed you and feel very out of the loop of your lives !!!
