Hello blogging friends
Mother thought it would be a good idea to dip my toe in the water so to speak.
I will have to get used to standing up as the face of Sugar Nellie as we have so much planned for 2012.
First I have to graduate, I have you to thank for being able to spend the last few years in Glasgow studying for my degree. The original concept of Sugar Nellie was to allow me the financial security to go off and get a great education without being a financial burden on my parents ( I am one of four children) we had hoped that SN would be popular enough to pay for my "keep" while away from home. Things turned out better than expected, amazingly so and that's all down to you , our loyal and supportive customers.
Soon the table top stamp company was growing so fast that is was difficult to keep on top of things. My Mum has an eye for art (she would never tell you, but she does have qualifications in this field but has more confidence promoting others and believes that art is something you have to keep working at. And it has been a long time since she stopped creating). In leaving the running of the business in her hands I have watched it grow, helping out when I can and being there when I am needed. I am sure that I could cut up rubber with my eyes closed and pack it while I am in my sleep.
I loved meeting some of you at the Glasgow show and I have since taken a shine to colouring with copics, something I hope to do far more of soon.
I am home as soon as I graduate and I have a wedding to plan! I am sure that Mother will have most of it done by then because as disorganized and laid back as she is sometimes, it all gets done, even if it is last minute.
My husband and I...............will return to USA to start our life together, its so exciting, my heart and mind are just bursting with anticipation of things to come. As scary and tearful as it is to leave my family behind in Scotland, I know that I will be part of a new family who will be a great support to Tom and I as we start this new chapter of our lives.
This also opens up a new chapter for Sugar Nellie. Mother has already said she does not want things to change in the House of Sugar ( Sugar Nellie HQ) but we are going to venture into the USA with a new dispatch centre and hopefully take part in some craft show's on the east side. Our time as a member company on Split Coast Stampers was a huge deal for us and proved too big for such as small company back in 2009. But with better foundation and support, we both believe that it is something we are ready for this time.
There is yet so much to do and I know that on behalf of everyone in the HOS, we thank you all for your amazing support over the last 4 years, our customers are most defiantly the sweetest.
thank you all
