We're celebrating the holidays a little differently this year at Boutique Cafe, my new baby Lola Olivia was born on Dec. 10th and isn't sleeping at night.

What I came up with was a wandering through various homes in our very own Boutique Community!!

This idea makes me feel like Robin Leach from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (minus the accent)!! It's a fun little holiday jaunt into the homes of some very creative gals who give so much year-round to their families and community. We hope you feel inspired by the Christmas decor, so cozy up with your hot cocoa and visit the homes of some of our closest friends.

You Can Make - A Difference

por Daria Muirhead

Charity on You Can Make This.com

I'm most honored to share a video from You Can Make This.com about their charity efforts on behalf of the Children's Miracle Network. I had the pleasure of meeting Kim the owner and founder of You Can Make This at our Boutique Cafe Girls Getaway back in April of this year. Kim is savvy business woman with great ideas and with the most kind heart, I was so impressed with her caring and wanting to make a difference and that's what their new campaign is all about. I knew that Boutique Cafe had to be a part of sharing the news, when something like this comes along you want to do whatever you can to be a part of it! Please watch this two minute video on how you can not only shop her site and create something wonderful for your children, but you can actually make a difference with your purchase of the new Miracle Pattern. The cost is $5.00 and 100% goes directly to the Children's Miracle Network. - Daria

Her tutu skirts are the perfect style to wear with any top from long to short sleeves, tank tops or even can be dressed up for a really special occasion.

Many of our very own members of the designing community have lost their homes and all their possessions.

The auctions will run throughout the month of September featuring boutique, handmade clothing and accessories and 100% of the profits from the sales will go directly to support the hurricane victims

Please search “Boutique Angels Charity” in your eBay search box and bid high and often to give a gift of hope to those who are struggling.

For additional information or if you are a designer that wants to get involved please visit the Boutique Angels website at www.boutiqueangels.com

Heartfelt gratitude to Adam Curry The "Pod Father"at the Daily Source Code podcast for mentioning our auctions on his Sept. 1st podcast.

***Update - As of Monday Sept. 5th the Boutique Angels auctions have raised over $18,000 for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and auctions are ongoing throughout the month of September. Thank you for continuing to bid and give from your hearts.
