Or champagne depending on what time zone you are in...you know it's midnight somewhere!
As always Sweetpeas is full of surprises and positive changes...today is no different.
Sweetpeas opened it's doors 5 years ago and pioneered the elegant paper crafting industry. The second day we opened Sweetpeas in 2004 we threw a Baby Shower complete with place settings of crystal glasses and personalized party favors....gorgeous floral creations and vintage baby toys draped with original paper pennants. That day put Sweetpeas on the map.
WE set the standard of attention to detail...no more balloons, diet coke cans and pizzas being thrown at you during a crop, party or class - always champagne and cupcakes...but mostly friendships being made.
Everyone that knows me, knows I am first and foremost an artist...that is how I created this magical world of Sweetpeas.
I am blessed with a business that has always blossomed especially with our move to Abbott Kinney in Venice.
I am also blessed with a beautiful family...both children in Elementary School when I started Sweetpeas...now one entering Junior High and one entering High School.
Our move to Venice made me step back and realize what direction I want Sweetpeas and my life to go...
Any artist will tell you four walls and an accounting book, payroll, inventory, security..etc. is not exactly their "dream"....
Sweetpeas and Snapshots will open it's online store August 1st with only one of a kind products.
I actually will be able to create kits...and find the artist in me again. I have secured wonderful venues and artists to produce events that only Sweetpeas can...the original.
I also will be able to answer and build relationships with all all my wonderful cyber friends and share my creativity as an event planner and store consultant (one of everyone's fave) while having Sweetpeas online and searching for a space that no longer has those four walls to hold me in.
Keep reading our blog everyday to see what's new and to hear all the exciting events we have planned for you this year...Details are being worked out with the release of Lilia's and my "Home Companion" project due out in November...I am thrilled to work with my friends who I adore.
Pauline, Erin, Tanja, Lilia, Robert, Norman, Kelsey, Erin and Alice (the Sweetpeas family) - we have a lot of fun and surprises in store for you.
