Nice surprise

Lisa B with her Pepperberry Orn

I had a nice surprise visitor to the store today.

Lisa B. dropped by unexpectedly from Palm Beach.

Lisa happens to be the sister-in-law of Diane, the owner of Pepperberry Designs. I recently discovered Pepperberry through a good friend. Lisa is an avid reader of the blog, and she decided to come by the store when I didn’t post anything over this past weekend. I guess she just wanted to make sure I survived opening soft launch day on Friday!

Isn’t that nice of her?

Anyway, Lisa and I had a lot fun talking needlepoint, stitching and other stuff.

Lisa’s a great stitcher and has done some really nifty stitching on the very addictive Vintage Flair series of ornaments from Pepperberry.

Thanks Lisa, for dropping by and being instrumental in the development of my fantastic new marketing plan to drive traffic to my store during the summer lull months.

I guess when it comes to blogging, less is more!
