Yup…you read that right! I am going to Hollywood in just a few short weeks!
Here’s the scoop.
I have not been posting much this past while because I have started a little business...I think that this is a good time to come clean...and tell you all what exactly is keeping me from my beloved blog.
A lot of you guys have been asking me via email WHERE I have been all these months…and if I am Chic-a-Boot. Well…the answer is yes. Chic-a-Boot is the little company that I created just over a year ago.
I have been working my little fingers to the bone designing, and creating my products and sending them ALL over Canada and the United States!
Those of you who have followed me for a while are probably stunned beyond stunned that I am actually sewing! I have never enjoyed that hobby. I was actually afraid of my sewing machine and didn’t even know how to thread the darned thing…it sat on a shelf for 20 years…until someone who knew how to sew would ask to borrow it…or come sew something for me. haha. In school, I stapled my home-ec project together…Sewing was NOT my thing. Until now.
NOW…I not only sew with one little regular machine…I am running 3 regular machines…an overlock machine and 4 industrial sergers! I have become somewhat of an expert….and I am
loving every minute of it!
What is Chic-a-Boot?
Chic-a-Boot is the name of my business…and is primarily boot cuffs…boot bracelets…unisex hunting gators…leg warmers and extender slips. Check out the gallery on the website to see my entire line!
WHY am I going to HOLLYWOOD?
Well…Chic-a-Boot was scouted out and invited to participate in a red carpet one on one celebrity event to celebrate the American Music Awards! Only 40 companies from around the world are invited to attend this event. It is such an exciting opportunity to meet celebrities…and have photo opportunities…and to promote the little business I have worked so hard to create!
It is very exciting to see anyone wearing my products when I am out and about, much less to see a celebrity wear them!
When I first opened the email that had the invite all detailed for me, I was skeptical. I decided to take a bit of time to do a little research and then phoned the telephone number they gave. This is for real.
THIS IS FOR REAL!!!!
The lady told me that they found me on my Chic-a-Boot Facebook page…clicked over to my website and LOVE my products and is certain that the stars will ‘just eat them up’! I am very excited for this opportunity!
I recently participated in the market place trade fair at the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose Alberta…It was such a fun venue…I got to meet a lot of new friends and picked up several new wholesale accounts.
It’s not the best photo…but that is my booth from Big Valley. It was a lot of fun to build the backdrop, and make the table skirt. I am so glad to have had that experience…and though a little nervous to go all the way from Alberta to Hollywood…I can’t wait to strut my product and hob nob with a few celebrities!
SO…Now you have the scoop…the reason I have been so absent from posting for the last while. I have been a VERY busy girl…stubbornly making my mind up to make my own little company a success.
If you have any questions…let them fly! oh….and don’t forget to watch for the Chic-a-Boot Brand in your favorite quality retail store!
I miss you all…and one day…I hope to have time to strut my stuff (if I ever get a chance to Tootsie around on something) lol
Until next time….Happy shopping!
