The Macs

my small town post office...

...LOVES me!

This is what I hauled into the post office today.
All the Etsy orders are mailed. PHEW!
You girls are awesome!
Thanks for keeping Cora's in business.
Now we have a bunch of empty hangers, so it is back to sewing.
And thanks to you, business is booming at our local post office!

My sweet sister came over last night and helped me package everything.
I couldn't have done it without her.
Thanks Anne!



Five hours later, my floor was covered in Cora's packages.
If you placed a Cora's order it should be arriving soon.
If you missed what you were hoping to get, keep checking back.
We are working on more dresses already!

Yippee, I can't wait! I already have the leggings to match the Cora dress I purchased for my daughter! I hope those boxes weren't too heavy for you to lift...praying for Baby Mac and your family!

Crossing my fingers for a 2T Cora dress next time around. Cannot wait to receive the shirt I ordered. Is it as fun as it looks -all the sewing, packaging, designing labels, etc? I dream of an etsy shop, just don't have the talent like you do!! Excellent work, and I hope you DO enjoy it!!

I'm still hoping to get one! :) It's amazing that you all are doing this. Every time I go to the site, there is either nothing or two items left.
Take care, and blessings on you all.

Ohhhh, Im so looking forward to the restock, am really hoping to be lucky next time. Im due No2 in February and Im actually tempted to find out whether its a boy or a girl, just so I can order a dress from Cora's :-). Im sure Cora is looking down at you all thinking "how amazing is my mommy"! Congratulations on all your hard work, its so lovely to think of all the people who are going to be made so happy this week when their dresses arrive. It all looks so pretty!! :-)

Jess. I know this is random, but I love the bench that you have in the "mud room" or whatever you call it. I would love to know where you found such a lovely antique-y bench. :)

Jess, I love the bench that you have in your mud room. Where ever did you find such a great antique-y blue bench? Do tell.

Just wanted to let you know that your blog encourages me every time I read it. Please go to my blog to check out an award I left for you. Also, I keep going to Cora's web site to try to buy something and always miss out. I'll keep trying. Excited about Baby Mac. We're expecting a new granddaugther Jan. 25th.

Can you make these in larger sizes? My 7 year old would look cute in one of these with a pair of jeans! Can you make them in like a 6x or 7?

I've been following your blog for many months and I have wanted something from Cora's store, but every time I looked, it was sold out. When I saw MckMama's post, I went straight there and got an adorable dress for my daughter. Can't wait for the package to arrive- fun to get a sneak peak behind the scenes. I will think of you and Cora and Baby Mac each time Natalie wears her dress. Thanks, and best wishes!!

I've been having a hard time viewing your items. I don't know if it's my computer but I am interest in getting a Cora Dress for my daughter. Feel free to email me at any time.

Oh, girl, I know what a relief it is to get those OUT of your house! Wish I was getting some fun Cora mail =(. Maybe next time...

It absolutely amazes me to stop & think about what you set out to do & then went on to accomplish in such a short period of time!! How incredibly wonderful that Cora's Playground was thought of, built, paid for & now played on in less than a year! Can't wait to see pics of Baby Mac playing on big sister's playground soon. God bless your family!!
