Thanks to Julie Sanders of The Spotted Zebra Boutique!

This is Julie Sanders with her sister, Jodi! They are sisters (and mothers) putting on The Spotted Zebra Boutiques in order to bring the best unique products Utah has to offer in one place! Julie Sanders was one of the first boutique promoters that we worked with back in April. She contacted us through another promoter and wanted to help us get the Boutique Frenzy word out! We really appreciate what Julie has done for our growth. We have gotten a large amount of traffic to our landing page from her blog, The Spotted Zebra Boutiques are always a lot of fun with so many talented people, unique products, and designer fashions! Thanks Julie, for your help! We love SweetHearts like you!!! Can't wait for your next boutique!

Molly Call and Noelle Olpin Earn the SweetHeart Award!

Back in April, Noelle Olpin and Molly Call were very helpful in getting the Boutique Frenzy name to their awesome vendors and fan base at the Beehive Bazaar. You have got to go to the next Beehive Bazaar! One of the best for sure! We loved looking(and buying) at the all of the wonderful handmade products. This is the event to attend to find the most unique and creative handmade items! We had a blast and Noelle and Molly were very fun to work with and very helpful in helping Boutique Frenzy achieve much success!

The following is taken from
"The Beehive Bazaar has become all-the-buzz in Utah every spring and winter when they showcase the independent designs, arts, crafts and edibles of more than 50 trend-setting local artists. The Bazaar touts a hand-selected inventory of unique, quality and most importantly, to-die-for handmade goods including jewelry, paintings, bags, glass, vinyl, paper, clothing and accessories as well as couture cupcakes, jams, cookies, caramels and treats. This is in no way your mother’s craft boutique."

A Boutique Frenzy Sweet Heart!

Angie Kirby is very deserving of our SweetHeart Award! Angie is one of the first vendors we met at the Simply Chic Boutique. We were amazed at her line of handmade products...very talented lady! A few weeks later, Angie emailed me with enthusiasm wanting to help us any way she could. She has hooked us up with Consign Design, a store open Mon-Sat from 10-6 on 3556 South and 5600 West in West Valley City,UT. Angie sells her products in Consign Design and has helped us get in touch with the owner to help both of our businesses grow! Consign Design hands out our promotional materials. Look on our Show & Tell page next week for a full write-up on Consign Design!

Angie Kirby is one of Boutique Frenzy's amazing fans and can't wait for the Fall launch of our amazing website to display and sell her products. Look for Angie this Saturday at the Street Fair for Vets on 50 North Church Street in American Fork UT from 12-8pm.

Quinn Curtis of is a Sweetheart!

Quinn Curtis, CEO/Owner/Manager/Founder, has been so kind in offering her support and help to make a successful Boutique Frenzy launch! We are glad to have met her and are excited to give her the
Boutique Frenzy Sweetheart Award
Being the creator of her own web-based business, she immediately connected with us at the What a Woman Wants show back in April. Since that time we have exchanged buttons on our websites, and she has invited us to be a apart of her conference for July 16th called "Moms Who Make It: Empowering Creativity in Life & Business. We are excited to be able to network at this conference with the mothers that attend and work together with Quinn to see how we can help each other in our efforts to support small businesses & boutique products.

If you have not checked out, do so today! Everything in their store is 100% created by Moms! The following excerpt is taken from

"Motherhood is truly divine, but it can be difficult to remember that while covered in spit up, drowning in dirty dishes & stressing over making ends meet. Often moms start their own businesses as a way to have more time at home with their families.

The chic boutique is a classy place for moms to sell the products they have created, while also enjoying the famous Mom-Vendor Discount (20% off any other item in the boutique!). began with the perfect recipe of 50% inspiration & 50% desperation. After watching many friends make fabulous products & then start their own businesses Quinn Curtis had a brilliant idea: open an online store that makes it easier for moms to sell & buy each other's products, making a one-stop shop for consumers to also support moms & their creations.

Thanks to the support of her INCREDIBLE husband & AMAZING family & friends, the idea evolved into reality.

Quinn named her company "Divine Mama" because she wanted the divinity in motherhood to be a paramount reminder in whatever the company was involved in. From this company came the Chic Boutique & the website Both of these sites have been built during naptime, in the early hours of the morning before her kids wake up & late nights after her kids have been tucked in."

Come on! Give it up for Quinn! What an amazing person and awesome advocate of woman and small business. Thanks for all of your help and support Quinn! We look forward to working with you into the future!

This SweetHeart is Heartlinked!

The SweetHeart Award goes to Cindee Johnson!!! This Woman is awesome! We met her at our very first show at the Simply Chic Boutique in Riverton. She was so interested in what we had to tell her about Boutique Frenzy and was the first to tell me all about the Heart Link Network, a community for woman to network and share their businesses! Cindee invited me to attend one of the Heartlink Meetings, but before we were able to attend, she became the Herriman Heart Link Network Area Coordinator! So, now I get to be a guest at her personal meetings and share Boutique Frenzy with all who attend! Pretty awesome I must say! She has helped Boutique Frenzy tremendously. You all saw her give away a $100 Cookie Lee Jewelry package last week! What you don't know is that I asked her to donate the same day I posted her prize.

She said,
"Hi Melissa, Just got your email and yes I'd be happy to donate a prize! I will work on it and get something to you soon!

She got me the info within a couple of hours! Amazing! What a great friend and true SweetHeart! Thanks Cindee for getting into the FRENZY and helpig everyone to do the same!

If you are a WOMAN and would like the opportunity to network and share your business and talents, please check out the Heart Link Network. Contact Cindee:

This One's For You Jen!

The SweetHeart Award goes to Jen Morton of Tinkerbear Boutique!

When I think SweetHeart, Jen Morton definitely comes to mind! Wow, where do I start? Jen was the first boutique promoter that I contacted to start promoting Boutique Frenzy and was basically the one that inspired the Travelogue Blog and the SweetHeart Award! Jen carries our flyers with her wherever she goes telling everyone about us, has invited us to all of her shows from day one to promote, and is constantly giving us new ideas and info about new shows. We feel honored to know her and to be able to work with her in this boutique industry. Jen has a big heart, loves to help others and has most definitely gotten into the Boutique Frenzy!

A little bit more about Jen...

" Tinker Bear was started a few years ago by my mother and I . The name comes from her love of bears, and my love of Tinker Bell, or anything Disney. We attempted a few boutiques, and it didn't last long. In July of 2008, I was spotted wearing a creation of my own, and had compliments on it. At that point, I thought, why not make clothing to sell? So I did. I bought a heat press and began. Children's, men's and women's clothing. From there it has gone to jewelry, hats, purses, things purchased and resold, you name it."
"What I get the most pleasure, and stress the same from, is putting on the boutiques. Last year, the market was hard to get into a show, or there were no shows to participate in, so I figured, if I can't find the work, CREATE IT! I started boutiquing, meeting other women with the same goals, same needs and ideas, and from there, started my own shows. I enjoy helping my vendors, whether it be with their blogs ( Desert Diamond Co. ), or doing ads for them, ( Usborne Books), maybe a little word of mouth, or adding links to my site.
I really believe that we can all help each other out in some way or another, and further more, WE SHOULD!"
"I have come across many people in this business, un willing to give an idea, give a lead, or even just help a little, and I really thought , better yet, I expected more from all of us! Without each other, we are nothing. So, now, I am planning more and more each day. A job that started off in my basement spending countless hours making clothes, has now become a 40 hr. work week, planning boutiques, helping other vendors, sending out leads, and just taking it all in."

"I am lucky enough to have my family support me, and friends. You frequently see my children, Braxton and Brynlee, and my wonderful husband Joe, at all of my shows. In fact, I have done one show with a sitter, and everyone went crazy asking where the kids were? Geez, do you only like me for them? I have been married to Joe for 10 yrs. this year. He owns a construction business that back in 1997, I helped him get started, and then 11 yrs. later, he was helping me do the same. My kids enjoy all of the women and the attention they get at these shows, and most of my greatest friends are those I have met through boutiquing. I couldn't be more blessed in my life, with a lot of supportive people entering my life daily."

"My goal is to get mine and other vendor's names and products out there. I feel very strongly that I have the best vendors out there, their products are great, and so are the people running the booths. These people, work very hard, and spend weekends putting up and tearing down huge displays, and a lot of them aren't doing it just for the money, but for the love of the whole world of boutiques."

"I am planning a few more shows for this year, and am hoping that attendance gets better each time. I want to help other women achieve their goals, and be able to bring in some income into their homes. I too, was a stay at home mom, and wasn't able to contribute, and so I know first hand, and feel the power, the greatness, to do even the littlest, to help in our home."
Things about Jen:
1. Is massively in love with her family
2, Is an avid animal lover( 5 cats, 2 dogs, 1 turtle, and more to come)
3. Finds great joy in supporting local causes, and charities
4. Enjoys helping other women succeed in life and meet their own goals
5. Loves the outdoors, and motorcross-supercross
6. Can play the piano- sometimes!
7. Loves heavy metal-classical and everything in between. Listen to my ring tones at a show, you will see
8. Most of the time, I would rather do it, or create it myself, and enjoy the challenge!
9. Loves everyone, whether they are straight, gay, black, white, loud, quiet, short tall, catholic, LDS, I love all people!
10. Loves her job and those she works with, and especially those she works CLOSE with!

Not only has Pamela Denicke been very generous and kind in helping us with Boutique Frenzy, she also spends her time helping single mothers pursue their educational dreams. We met this true SweetHeart at the What a Woman Wants show back in March. Pamela was so much fun to talk to and it has been apparent to us that she really LOVES helping others. Pamela Denicke is the Education Program Manager for the Single Mom Foundation, dedicated in "Helping single moms pursue their educational dreams." The SMF is committed to improving the lives of single moms and their families by helping them develop long-term self-reliance through education.

Boutique Frenzy wants to help Pam by letting all single mothers know that The Single Mom Foundation now helps single moms through the process of going to school in an informative ‘How To’ workshop!

Attending a FREE workshop will help a single mom to:

There will be 3 workshops per month on campuses of their educational partners from applied technology colleges to 2- and 4-year colleges and universities beginning this month through November. SMF is very excited about the opportunity to be able to interact with single moms and actually walk them through their Education Resource website. For more information please go to or contact Pamela directly at!

Boutique Frenzy looks forward to supporting the Single Mom Foundation in their efforts to help single mothers.

We give a big THANK YOU to Pamela for all that you do! Thanks for helping us share what we do and for helping women everywhere make their dreams come true too!
