Today's Featured Business!

We have decided to use this blog to help promote the other businesses that we work with at Elegant Mommy. So, the first one that we are going to talk a bit about is someone that I have used personally many times in the past year and am always thrilled with her work...Michelle Sanderson of Dream It! Designs.

Are you looking for a creative card that is designed just for you and great personal service to go along with it? If so, you've found the perfect design studio. Michelle is an extremely talented Mommy to 2 boys who can take you existing photos and digitally enhance them into exquisite cards! We have used Michelle for birthday invitations & birth announcements with wonderful results! Best of all, her prices are extremely reasonable and you're supporting a local Mom!

Check out all of Michelle's work at:

Our New Blog!

We have been wanting to start a blog for Elegant Mommy for quite a while now & today is as good of a day as any to get this going! We should have done this a long time ago because this was WAY easier than I thought it was going to be :)

The intent of this blog is to keep all of our incredible customers updated on happenings in the store and to get feedback from people on what they would like to see in the store, workshops they would like to attend, or just to tell us what is happening in your life!

As many of you know, we welcomed our 3rd child to the Elegant Mommy family on June 3rd. Chase has been an awesome blessing to our family and we are enjoying everything that God puts in front of us everyday...okay so maybe "enjoying" isn't the best word to use, maybe I should say we are "dealing" with everything God puts in front of us :) Seriously though Chase is a great baby and we have enjoyed all of our bonding time with him. However, I do have a business to run, so I am hoping to get Elegant Mommy running full speed ahead again in the coming weeks! My wonderful friends have done an incredible job keeping the store running smoothly for the last six weeks and I praise God for you! I don't know what I would do without the Elegant Mommy Kelly's! So look to see me at the store a lot more!

There are some exciting things that we are going to be offering at Elegant Mommy in the coming weeks! Mark your calendar as you don't want to miss out on these exciting workshops and other opportunities!
