I got a new doo!

Hi Yall!  I am working on my second post with my new schedule and that means it's;

Free Friday
(really need to learn how to make some cute buttons)

here at The Decorative Dreamer.

I get to post about whateva!
I've spent this past week getting all my ducks in a row, hope they will stay that way for a little while.

I've been very busy marketing the new business and have a couple of bookings for April.  One is very large and will be a great way to start off the month.  I've also got a few ladies who are testing the water for doing catalog sales in their offices.  I hope those work out for March.  This means labeling and tagging out everything.

I made these cute decorative labels in a snap using a free template from  I bought the labels at Walmart and just went to the website on the back of the package.   Still waiting on free business cards I have coming in from  Free templates there too, and I only paid for shipping!  Woohoo!

  I have purposely not been booking anything for March due to the very poor health of my FIL. I would hate to have to cancel on a host, so the office orders will be a blessing.  I have set up a facebook page called Mary Keels Initial Outfitters that you can "LIKE" if you want if you are on facebook.

Also, I wanted to remind you that I am updating my blog with photos of my own collection often under  the Decorative Dreaming with Initial Outfitters tab beneath my header. Look for more photos, like these.

In addition, I've been working on that tray picture I bought because I want to transform it for my displays but I am having a heck of a time getting these little nails out of the cork board without totally destroying it.

  This will have to be a project you work on for a bit then put down and pick up again later, very frustrating! I really thought it was going to be much easier, and I think there is glue behind this cork too.  I will get there though!

So here's the newest BIG change that I did to help me get my ducks in a row.  I got a new haircut!  It has been a long time coming!  My hair was getting way too long and way to time consuming to style.  Hopefully with this shorter doo it will be easier for me to dry and style a lot quicker.  

Terrible photo I know, but let's try and focus on the hair okay?  LOL!  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are looking forward to a great weekend!
