my small town post office…

…LOVES me!

This is what I hauled into the post office today.

All the Etsy orders are mailed. PHEW!
You girls are awesome!
Thanks for keeping Cora’s in business.
Now we have a bunch of empty hangers, so it is back to sewing.
And thanks to you, business is booming at our local post office!
My sweet sister came over last night and helped me package everything.
I couldn’t have done it without her.
Thanks Anne!

Five hours later, my floor was covered in Cora’s packages.
If you placed a Cora’s order it should be arriving soon.
If you missed what you were hoping to get, keep checking back.
We are working on more dresses already!

  • jeannebean - I’ve been following your blog for many months and I have wanted something from Cora’s store, but every time I looked, it was sold out. When I saw MckMama’s post, I went straight there and got an adorable dress for my daughter. Can’t wait for the package to arrive- fun to get a sneak peak behind the scenes. I will think of you and Cora and Baby Mac each time Natalie wears her dress. Thanks, and best wishes!!ReplyCancel

  • Mandi @ It's come to this - It absolutely amazes me to stop & think about what you set out to do & then went on to accomplish in such a short period of time!! How incredibly wonderful that Cora’s Playground was thought of, built, paid for & now played on in less than a year! Can’t wait to see pics of Baby Mac playing on big sister’s playground soon. God bless your family!!ReplyCancel
