*News*


It's been almost two years since I launched Gabry Road.  I have made the decision to not renew the server hosting. In theory, I still believe Gabry Road, as a Canadian based online handmade marketplace is a fabulous idea but it did not 'take off' as I had intended or hoped. I am not upset or disappointed. I tried,  maybe not hard enough or there simply was not enough interest especially in lieu of the ever-so-popular Etsy marketplace and other fabulous online handmade marketplaces. 

A huge thank you to each and everyone who supported Gabry Road and followed along for the last couple years! Your comments and support were always inspirational and encouraging.

On that note, if you can't beat them, join them right! Well, I too will be joining the Etsy marketplace. With the exception of a short 'transition period', Gabry Road will continue exist but will be replaced as a personal blog. For those who do not know, Gabry is a combination of my children's names, Gabriel and Rylee. I am not sure if I could ever come up with a biz name as personal as Gabry so www.gabryroad.com will remain but be replaced by rantings of my own escapades and the like. 

In the meantime,  the Flourishy boutique and other boutiques on Gabry Road have many of their precious handmade items on sale! 

Gabry Road (as it currently exists) will be closing effective October 1, 2012 and should be re-launching on October 8, 2012. 

Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support, new friendships, encouragement and well, just being there!

NOW, in addition to sharing the amazing talent of these boutique owners, we wanted our blog hop to be more interactive with ALL OF YOU!  So... we're going to have a TREASURE HUNT!!  (I'm so excited about this!)

Here's how it works:
Below you will find a series of clues.  Each clue pertains to an item found in each of the boutiques participating in today's blog hop.  Your task is to figure our from each of the clues given, what item we are talking about. Fun huh?!?!  Now we don't want to make things crazy difficult, because.. well, that's no fun, so here's a tip to help you out.  Each of the clues listed are in order of the Blog Hop boutiques. So for example, clue #1 pertains to an item found at Scrap N Doodle, clue #2 to an item at Sandpiper Memories, and so on and so forth. 

As you visit each of the blogs on our hop, you will find a link to their boutique, so, clue in hand, you can go treasure hunting! Here are your clues....

CLUE #1: Frogs, Zebras, Owls oh my! Baby I could snuggle up in that!
CLUE #2: I’m so egg-cited!  When I wear this, the girls will be green with envy!
CLUE #3: Baking up a storm?  Forget  that Miss, I’ll be baking up a hurricane!
 CLUE #4: This year I’m tossing out the old towels, and prettying things up 
with some summer blooms.
CLUE #5: There is something so magical about a butterfly... 
they simply make my heart flutter!
CLUE #6:  A little drop of music soothes the soul, and makes dreams take flight.
CLUE #7: There is something to be said about sitting under the shade of
beautiful oak tree.  It can breath new life into you.


 NOW THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Make note of the NAME of product you find, and then when you've found all seven, come back here and leave a comment with your list of items.  
We will draw a name from all those who correctly find all seven items.  In the event that no one gets all 7 correct, the individual with the most correct items will win.  Oh, and what is the prize you ask?
The winner will receive 10% off their next purchase 
in EACH OF the participating boutiques! Yes folks, that's 10% off in SEVEN different boutiques!!
(The Treasure Hunt will end at Midnight (12:00am) EST Tuesday August 28th 2012)
