Icing on the Cupcake: The "I Love My Artists Party!" at My Aunt Debbie

The sign outside the Mommalicious and My Aunt Debbie Shop may have said Closed last night, but there was a party going on inside! (and my red British Wensleydale flowers in the window:)!


Debbie, who has welcomed local artists into her shop as consignment vendors, showed her appreciation by hosting this party. It allowed all of us (in an impressive collection of leg wear!) to finally put names and Etsy shop names to faces.

Everyone introduced themselves and showed off their work.

above, Bethany and DJ, and Rachelle Vriend below...

Katie, and everyone...

Alicia...

Mimi who i carried throughout the party (except for this quick diaper change)...

Cori of Fybster...

and of course a party isn't complete without an Indie gift exchange...Yankee Swap style...yes, there was a lot of coveting, and a little swapping:)
Liz Guers of Oh Talking Bird, got an amazing bird necklace by DJ.

and Emily Truman of This 'Ol Thing got a happy My Aunt Debbie scarf. here she is with Cori, Lindsay, and Rachelle.

Last but not least, I thought I'd enclose this little clip of Debbie and the group (so you can pretend you are right there in the party action too.)
We are all grateful to her for giving us a great shop to sell our work in. With Debbie sending weekly updated inventories and checks, combined with her artistic enthusiasm and unwavering support- I think we'd all admit that this party was really, icing on the cupcake! Thank you Debbie!
