Happy New Year!

Happy almost New Year from the Curtsy Girls!! 2010 was a big year for us! After over 2 years of planning and saving Curtsy Mama traveled to Africa with her best friend Pamela. We were able to go on safari and attend 2 World Cup soccer games. It was pretty awesome!
After that was the wedding of Curtsy Girl Danielle to her long time love, Ed. Danielle pushed her creative/artistic boundaries by making all of the bridal bouquets out of vintage jewelry, and the boutonnieres out of brass stampings. She also added to the magic of the day by creating glittery accessories for guests to wear in the photo booth we rented. The tables were adorned with custom made signs as well. Her wedding is featured in Seattle Metropolitan Bridal Magazine which will be on sale in January 2011. Custom Curtsylicious Creations is an expanding part of Curtsy Bella and Danielle is available to help make your wedding or event an affair to remember.

We were also able to push past the tough learning curve thrown at us with our new embroidery machine this year. That has allowed us to offer an ever expanding array of gifts that can be personalized. We've learned that Seattlites have just as wicked a sense of humor as the Curtsy Girls as evidenced by the success of our naughty holiday hand towels, napkins and golf towels.

So what's in store for 2011? The Curtsy Girls will be heading to the Atlanta Gift Show in a couple of weeks. Look for expansions in our wedding and baby sections this year. In May we'll be celebrating 5 years in business, so stay tuned for details of this special milestone. We'll also be launching a brand spanking new website in January. We'll be back to faithfully blogging showing what's new in the store and what Curtsylicious fun events are happening.

As we say goodbye to 2010, we want to say thanks for your support this year. We are two of the luckiest girls in the world. We have a job we absolutely love that brings amazing people (our customers) into our lives.
Stay Safe! Stay Glittery! Stay Curtsylicious!
Happy New Year!!
