Early 2017

Early 2017

We are so thankful that we have stayed busy through the winter months! Right now we are getting ready to exhibit at our first ever wholesale show. We’ll be at the Lansing Gift Show on February 26, 27 & 28. We hope you’ll stop by our booth (#409) and see all of our new designs and products in person!...
From the Heart

From the Heart

My youngest brother, Kyle, is graduating from Butler University next weekend. He was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. In 2013, he was rushed to the hospital in Indianapolis with ventricular tachycardia. Paramedics used an AED to save his life in the ambulance. This is the reason why we donate a percentage of our profits each month to the Wes Leonard Heart Team. The WLHT uses the funds they receive to purchase AED devices for schools. Kyle wrote an awesome story for his senior capstone about sudden cardiac arrest and athletes. It is a long read, but I encourage you to read it! If you read Kyle’s personal story, you will read about Sue Ross, who died of a heart attack during Kyle’s open heart surgery. Sue was our first sales rep for Polka Dot Mitten. It’s hard to understand why things happen, but they do! http://blogs.butler.edu/multimedia-jou…/longform/heartbreak/...
Home Tour!

Home Tour!

Recently, my friend Brooke DeBoer, of Brooke DeBoer Interiors, visited my home to help me make our living room and front room more functional. She showed me how to arrange my existing furniture to make the room feel bigger. Then we “shopped” for accessories from other areas of the house to bring in to compliment the new arrangement. I love how it turned out!...

We’re Going Up North!

We’re Going Up North!

Next week, we are planning on taking a road trip up north.  We’ll stop at many of the sweet little shops that carry Polka Dot Mitten goodies along the way. We’ll be staying in Traverse City, but I have a trunk show at Two Fish Gallery in Leland  on Friday the 17th from 1-4pm. I can’t wait to visit!  Leland has always been one of my favorite places in Michigan – I have been there numerous times.  We used to go all the time when I was a kid. Many times, we would go with my uncle and my cousin and stay at Falling Waters Lodge.  Lots of happy memories of Fishtown! I’ll post pictures after we get back next...
