This is my BIG NEWS!!! : ) Caitlin, my daughter, entered Her Deer Plaque (as seen above) in the Fred Flare "THE NEXT BIG THING" contest. She became one of 26 finalists!!! We are very excited! Now, starting today you can VOTE for your favorite, {perhaps Caitlin : ) } and you can also purchase this special Fred Flare exclusive Deer Plaque Design. Fred Flare has them available on their website! That's right , you cannot find this exact design anywhere else...She has made this especially for you! : ) Douglas, my son, screen printed her logo across the back of the plaque instead of using her usual tag. It all looks amazing!!! I am very proud of their work!!!
So if you would like to help her to ****WIN* ***And if you would like to purchase this very pretty Deer Plaque just go to
FredFlare Voting begins June 19th (be prepared for the proud mom to send you a "bulletin"). I believe you can purchase now, if you desire.
At this time I do not know how long the voting will last. This is the unveiling day. Yep! Caitlin {Nice} is one of those being introduced on opening day!!! Thank You for coming to see and be apart of our "BIG NEWS"!!! I hope you find this very fun!
And remember to let all your creative friends know about this venue for themselves next year!!!

Oh congratulations! I tried to put the badge on my blog but am having trouble. I put the photo up and the link and will try to fix it but how it looks now is probably how it will stay unless I can find someone to help me! Caitlin should do well - she has the best piece!

Hi Mary,
How exciting for Caitlin. She will be busy for a while.
To answer your questions about the slipcovers, I need to be in the same room with the piece of furniture, so that I can make a pattern, unless... there is an old slipcover that fits and can be taken apart. Hope this answers your questions. Thanks for your encouraging comments.

Natasha Burns said...

Hi Mary,
Coudn't work out if you wanted to be in the matchbox swap as I didn't hear a 'yes i'm in', but a 'i am too late', LOL! Please email me your address ASAP to if you want to be in it, or let me know if you don't. I am at the final end of assigning partners now.
Thanks! Natasha
