Big Changes

As Simply Creative Boutique grows changes are a must. I once read that when something in your business isnt working you must let it go and change. So that is what Simply Creative Boutique is doing.
Starting in September Simply Creative will longer accept consignment from creative artists. We will be going into full Studio mode! The entire store will be a creative studio for artists to create and oppurtunities teach their craft in the studio. There will be open studio hours to come and create in a space that will inspire and encourage your creative side. The studio will also host events for groups such as girlscouts, birthday parties, girl’s night out, and more. Simply Creative will continue to participate in fairs and festivals and encourage artists to join in at these events. Stay tuned at our blog for more information and details on the positive changes happening.

Winner!

All the comments posted were inspiring to me and I thank you for taking the time to leave your comments and sharing with others!

The person who inspired my creativity was …. Jamie! Creativity is definitely imagination, and bringing it to life is Inspiring. Thank you for sharing Jamie.

Congratulations Jamie, I will be emailing you shortly.
