It's an exciting time in my neck of the woods! Our county fair is going on this week, and we live in a rural area so that's a big deal around here. My daughter and I both made some CKC outfits to enter into the fair (she is 8), and they were all a hit! Even better than the blue ribbons we earned is having our creations out on display for everyone to see. Even if you don't have a county or state fair near you, we have an exciting announcement coming up in just a bit, so stay tuned! But first, let's take a look at our gorgeous new releases. We have some really unique styles for you this week!
