biz-ness




Hello bon bons! I was a little lax on the blogging at the end of last week, I know. I've got pictures of the dress I made at our sewing circle, pictures of our store re-arranged (which I did on Saturday) and a picture of this awesome piece that my sister made me for Christmas that I wanted to share with you. Alas, I haven't gotten them up here yet! I promise they will arrive this week!

In the meantime, I was just reading the blog The Boss of You which I read about on decor8. It's all about a running your business your own way--focused on women business owners. They also have a book out, which I am interested in getting. There is another good blog about running a business called Shop Owner, which is written by a local Kansas City woman who runs the very successful store Curious Sofa. As a business owner it is great to find these kind of sites where you can feel like you are part of a community. It's not easy having your own business (especially now) and it's nice to know others are in the same boat!

Goodness! I just realized that it's tax day! Ugh. Hey, just to brighten up the day, anyone who reads this email can have 10% off at bon bon. Either bring in a copy of this blog or go online and enter APRIL into the promo code section and you can have 10% off today only. After all if you are giving the government money, you might as well do something for yourself!
I'll leave you with some pictures of the MOR teacup candles that arrived yesterday. We have them in Peony Flower and Jasmine Tea. The pictures really don't do them justice, you should really see them in person. So pretty!
