Tampa Trunk Show and an Announcement

Happy 2012, my beautiful friends!  I am so sorry that it has taken me a whole 6 days into the new year to wish you well!  Also, I am even more sorry that it has been almost an entire month since my last post!!

What a crazy holiday season it has been!! I spent the entire month of December making items for AquaSeventy6’s final trunk show of 2011, in Tampa, Florida.  After a 12 hour drive, and three days of last minute preparation, I am happy to announce that the show was a success!

It was such a pleasure to put this show together with my friend, Marcy, owner of K.a.i-y.a. Designs!

Here is the AquaSeventy6 table!
Checkbook Covers, Everything Pocuhes, Key Rings, and Headbands.
Button Pendant necklaces, Cuff Bracelets, He Loves Me Brooches and Hair Clips, Business Card/ID Holders, and more Headbands.
Ruffled Wreath, Felt Wine Bag and Clutches.
Fabric and Bead Necklaces and Scrappy Scarf Necklaces.

Here is the K.a.i-y.a. Designs table.  The Superhero tees and onesies were a BIG HIT!
Just look at these super cute headbands and reindeer tees!
I actually wanted this adorable Christmas skirt and top combo for myself!
Our hubbies took over as bartenders for the evening. 
Sangria Terreo was number one on the menu!
After a long, yet productive evening, Marcy and I
were finally able to pose for a photo!

I wish I would have photographed some of our guests, but by the time Marcy and I came up for air, the crowd had dwindled down, and our tables were sparse! We were very, very blessed.  Thanks to all of you who joined us that evening!!

Finally, I wanted to take a moment to announce some changes here at AquaSeventy6:

I started this blog in 2010 in conjunction with my very good friend, Autumn, who shares my passion for second-hand, refurbished, vintage and handmade items.  Together we featured our DIY projects, tutorials and our handmade items for sale.  As of January 2012, we decided that we each had so much to share that we would divide and conquer.  I will keep you updated on Autumn’s journey and link her new site as soon as its up and running.

Autumn, your contribution to our site will be greatly missed, but I can’t wait to see how you transform your skill and passion into another beautiful endeavor.  Love you tons!

Trunk Show Preview

First thing this week, both Yvette and I sent out boxes of goodies for the first of our holiday trunk shows, which is coming up this weekend! By now the extravaganza of fabric items should be safely in Port St. Lucie, for all the party-going ladies to enjoy. But for the rest of you, here is a little peek and what’s in store.
Roomy Shoulder Bag
This bag is so great – I actually own one myself! It has 4 deep pockets on the outside (big enough to hold a bottle of wine!) and a nice roomy inside for anything you can imagine.
Everyday Kitchen Apron
I conned my sweet mom into modeling this fun apron. I loved the fun kitchen themed print. Plus, it is so easy to clean – just toss it in the wash with everything else.
Medium Make Up Bag
Large Make Up Bag
I love these simple zippered bags. You can fill them with (obviously) make up, snacks, sunglasses, first aid supplies…your camera, phone…whatever you like! They are perfect to toss into a *Roomy Shoulder Bag* or just grab and go on their own.
I hope that all the S Florida girls have fun shopping all the great stuff from Aqua Seventy6 and other vendors! Let the shopping season begin!
