The New Blog!!

I am thanking God for Valentine's Day. Why?? I met a wonderful gal {Brooke Lien with Unity Stamp Company} while out to dinner with my hubby who has changed my business dramatically!! How?? She explained to me the importance of this here blog to my "word of mouth" business.

Then, I met another lovely gal {Angie Magnuson, owner of Unity Stamp Company} at an event at Glacial Ridge Winery. How blessed am I to receive such contacts, out of the blue? Seriously.
What was once dull... IS NOW FABULOUS!!! I went ahead and revamped this {blog}. You likey?? get some *followers* Please tell a friend! This blog will serve as an update to all sales, news, and $GIVEAWAYS$ from Ali J Boutique.

Thanks so much!!

Scarf Tying Video!

So I had a dilemma about three months ago. I had this great idea to do a video of scarf tying to put on this here {blog}. I tried five different times to do so, but to no avail. The main reasons I didn't like the results were because a) I looked tired b) I had a huuuuuge bump for a belly and c) I kept running out of breath!! The joys of being 9 months pregnant. After returning the video camera, I didn't have the determination to set it all up again.

HOWEVER!! I am pleased to announce that I am going to *steal* one. {Well, it says 'embed' on the video, so I don't believe I am technically stealing.}

So here is the story behind this video: a lovely friend of mine from church who has blessed my scarf shows with her presence (and wallet;) a few times, told me about a great gal who has a blog titled "The Big Mama Blog" She does 'fashion Fridays' and lately, the scarf has been mentioned numerous times. Aaaaah. A lady who shares my passion. It is so nice to feel understood;) So anyway, Big Mama posted this video in response to a friend of hers who could use some tying assistance. Thank you Big Mama!
