We are thrilled to announce the talented vendors of the Spring Boutique that will be held on Saturday, March 29th! The four connecting ballrooms, lobby and patio of the Old Ranch Country Club will be filled to the brim with handmade goodness! We have many returning vendors as well as a lot of new vendors too! We are looking forward to a wonderful Spring boutique! Save the date!
The Penelope Lane Holiday Boutique is coming up this Saturday! We have a lot of returning vendors and a ton of new vendors too! Because we are not having a central check out this time (each booth will be doing their own sales) we have more room for more vendors, so the lobby, four connecting ballrooms and patio will be filled with handmade goodness! Bring a friend and make it a fun girls day out!
Hope to see you there!
p.s. we are giving away shopping money to use at the boutique on Saturday! $100, $50, $25!
We have been so excited about it and are thrilled to launch it during the month of October, which is a very special month. It is Spina Bifida awareness month as well as disability awareness month.
During the month of October, part of the proceeds from this book will go towards helping other children receive adaptive bikes!
We are hosting a launch party on October 15th where books and t-shirts will be available for purchase. If you are unable to attend the launch party, books are also available onkatiecandoandyoucantoo.com
The launch party on October 15th will be held at this gorgeous venue, the El Dorado Park Golf Course, big white event tent. Bring your family and friends and enjoy some dessert, a beautiful view and get a signed copy of "Katie Can Do And You Can Too!"
Here is what the publisher had to say about the book:
Katie CAN do…and you CAN too! is a heartfelt lesson for children and grown-ups about what is possible. With hard work, a can-do attitude, and a positive approach to life, anything is possible. The book is easy to read, teaches about Spina Bifida, and lifts the spirit. Full of beautiful photos and Katie's narration, this book succeeds at being inspirational, hopeful, and best of all…fun.
Katie hopes that readers will enjoy her book and her story. She has shared her personal journey in order to help inspire others, with and without visible challenges, to work hard, remain positive, and hold true to a can-do attitude.
We are super excited to announce our vendors for the Fall Penelope Lane Boutique coming up on September 28th! We hope to see you all there! This will be our biggest show to date, as we will have all four connecting ballrooms filled with these fabulous vendors...
So for now, I'd love for you to follow me on thefamily blogOR on Instagram until I figure out this little corner. Come the fall, I will have all my kids in school, so I will have a little more time to put towards blogging and all the fun that comes with it!
