Allie meet Everyone, Everyone meet Allie

and.she.makes.coffee.too

There is a new face in the studio and the kids never want to see me again. Allie this. Allie that. And she's not even here to babysit. Would someone please tell the kids that she is not here to babysit!? She is here to make coffee. Erhh wait. She is here to keep me company and make me giggle and keep me from crying while setting up international shipments.

all in the wrist

Oh no, wait...she's here to take care of all the shop orders, cut and fold stacks, answer the phone, answer some customer service emails and run errands. Oh and make coffee. Did I say that already?

stack.attack

Or maybe she's here to make the studio a sunnier place as that seems to have happened ever since she arrived. Wow. How does she do it all? And cuteness wasn't even a requirement yet she insists on being completely overqualified for the job in that department.

Everyone say "hello" to Allie.

xoxo, boss anna

  37. Uh, can she come to my house on her days off from yours? My office needs organizing and paperwork done for the accountant. I'm not too far south of you. BTW, I just got my first yards of "Sketch" - the one with the bird - and I love it. It's the first fabric I have of yours, and it's beautiful.

  49. I wish I was an...Anna Maria Horner. So creative. Anyway, yeah Allie. Good for you. That should be an enlightening & inspiring position. I love your fabrics. I'm staring @ this love seat I have thinking it must be redone. Too bad I have no idea how to sew very well and no idea how to recover something. I wonder if I could slowly figure it out!

  74. Apart from protecting mnbgqhj your eyes from Oakley Sunglasses Cheap the flying debris and pollutants, the most important function of Half X Oakley is to protect the eyes from the harmful Oakley Sunglasses Discount sunlight and UV ray. Most of the Sale Oakley Sunglasses available on the market are with Oakley Jawbone inferior qualities and they only provide Oakley Stpl Jawbone you a beautiful look instead of blocking the UV ray. But Half X in fact, you can still find some cheap wholesale Oakley Sunglasses Outlet that are with high quality if you are able to judge whether they have the anti-UV function?
