maypole started at the prompting of the bijou girls. in my head, i was going to skip out this season.... chalk it up to premature design skills, a lack of product, and all around ill-preparedness. all of it, though, was just a good excuse for plain ol' fear to launch. nothing like a quick deadline, though, to light a fire under me and get things cranking into motion!
bijou was so good to me, though. i wanted to cry happy tears when my friends came out in support of me, and i wanted to do a toe touch and throw my arms around every stranger i saw with my goods in their basket.
thank you, friends! so very much!
