I heart shoes:)

What girl doesn't love a new pair of shoes?  Even though I have more pairs than I can count, I managed to add a few new additions to my collection.  Here they are...

Thank you Steve Madden!!

Becoming Official

So because there are some amazing new possibilities coming up in the future I decided that I needed to just sit down and get all the yucky business stuff out of the way.  When I started selling on Etsy I didn't really know if I needed a tax id and to be registered, etc....in fact I'm still not sure lol, but I decided to do it all anyway.  So last week I registered mila rose designs to get our tax id number and went and did the whole DBA madness so once I get our DBA certificate, after I do the required newspaper posting, mila rose designs will officially be official!  How cool to say I'm a business owner!!  Yay!!!


Blog Madness!!!

YAY!!!   2 blogs in one day:)

We did an Artist Interview with Jennifer from KiGi's Boutique (http://www.kigisboutique.blogspot.com) and it was posted today!  So come read a little big about mila rose designs on the Etsy Momentum blog!!!

Good Morning!

Wow I haven't been up this early in a while, but I'm meeting mom for breakfast and french toast is definitely a motivator to wake up...and shoes.  The last time I was up this early was a couple weeks ago when mom called me from Target to tell me that the Cynthia Vincent Gladiator Wedges were there and they only had one in each size and she wanted me to come and try on my size that she was hiding in her cart, so of course I rolled out of bed and went...I kind of have a shoe problem!

Anyway I have tons of stuff to do today to make mila rose designs "real."  All of this registering and tax stuff is so confusing and I'm determined to figure it all out and just be done with it, so that will take up most of my day, but I did wake up to a nice surprise!  The amelie, one of the newest headbands, was featured in a blog today so I wanted to share it with you:)  http://walrustudio.blogspot.com/



I love new things!  New shoes, newly painted walls, new fatty cupcake recipes, but a new blog is scary!  I wanted this blog to be perfect before anything got posted, but I would work on something....then get bored...and  at the rate I was going it would be years before anything got done.

If anyone out there is reading the randomness, you'll see posts from me (Melis) and my fabulous little sister, Laura.  We recently started an accessory line called mila rose designs.  I create pretty hair things and she creates crocheted works of art.  We'll keep you posted on the line and other things we love!

So while there is a random pink background and I can't figure out how to put pictures up, I'm just going to embrace....and post!
