Welcome to 2020 Glitter Bugs!

New Beginnings

There have been a lot of "new" and exciting things happening for me and my little family since relocating here from Upstate, N.Y., in 2017.  Along with buying a "new-to-us" home, making new friends, enrolling the teens in a new school and consuming large amounts of Southern cuisine that's new to us, I also became a new Shoppe Gal in October of 2019!

The Doodling Bug has become such a blessing for me and my family!  I had been searching for a perfect fit and I was starting to feel defeated as time went on.  That all changed the moment that I walked into The Doodling Bug.  I could barely contain my excitement as I looked around and felt that "ah-ha!" moment.  I noticed the perfectly decorated shoppe window, as I passed it on my way inside.  Then, my eyes were drawn to the wooden plank ceiling, down the creative displays along the walls and cupboards, and on to all of the fanciful goodies on the shelves and beautiful clothing on the racks.  Immediately, I got the feeling that I was invited to a festive party and I couldn't help but feel happy spending time there.

My favorite part about being a Shoppe Gal? Getting to personally greet folks as they enter the shoppe and chat with them while they visit.  I've met people from Australia, Japan and from many various places right here in the U.S. as well.  I truly enjoy getting to know a little about everyone and hearing about their plans for the week.  A little bonus for me is when K9 friends pop in for a cookie.  The Shoppe is dog-friendly, so fur visits are always welcome!

I'm really looking forward to welcoming the "new" 20's, with all of you!  My wish for all of you is for health, happiness, success, and lots of "new" and wonderful things to fill your lives.

Happy New Year!
