Today is July 25, 2017. This update is to inform those buying products through my websites that all sales go through Paypal secure checkout pages. These pages have a green security lock symbol at the top left corner indicating your purchase is secure. Those on pages with Paypal links and no green security lock will be taken to secure pages once a selection is made. There you will find the green secure lock symbol and be able to input billing information.

Those choosing not to use this format may call me at 318 792-5757, or email me to place orders. If I am not available, please leave a message and I will call you back at my earliest convenience. During the return call I will create and email you an invoice. When it is received you may pay using your chosen form of payment. Once your payment clears your order will be mailed and you will also be emailed tracking information.  

Lastly I am still offering a limited number of hat making classes until the end of August 2017. Anyone interested in bridal parties, redesigning hats, or creating fascinators are invited to join me Sunday afternoons 2-7:00 PM at the EpiCenter in the Cooper Young area. Those planning to attend must RSVP by e-mailing me.
