Can you believe what beautiful weather we have been getting here in the NE Scotland?
I hope that where ever in the world you are that the sun is shining down on you this Sunday.
Generally crafters disappear when the sun comes out, especially here in Scotland. We see it so seldom that it is a waste to sit inside and craft, for there are endless dull wet and windy days for crafting. Not only are the shops quieter when the suns out but generally, the summer months are the quietest.
The lull before the storm as they say, because when the schools go back late August, its Christmas time!
Sept and Oct being the busiest months of our crafting year, we take the quiet summer to plan classes, demos and new stamp releases.
Yes I already have Christmas stamps waiting in the wings!
But this week has been all about the RETURN TO FAIRY GLEN.
I hope you all enjoyed the blog hop,. our DT are amazing. Thank you girls for your hard work and awesome cards, I cant express how much it means to this wee stamp company to have your support.
To all our loyal sugar addicts, you were so in need of a good sugar fix LOL you waited a long time for those but I can tell you love them.
Remember that the full release is only available at the special price until the end of the day. We are down to single figures with these sets(as of 10.20am), no kidding, once the kits are done it single stamps only on Funkykits.
This weeks see's more painting for the pop up shop, some stock has been delivered but our BIG order from East Of India will arrive next week. Lucky for us the class room at Papercrafts will give us the space to open and drool over this range before pricing and packing up for the new shop and Oldmeldrum.
Our week at work was soured by a shop lifter, a fact of life that all retail business suffer from. I was amazed at the amount of stock she had pinched, how many times a week is that walking out our door? I hate to think but for once we caught her bonny.
" Dorothy from Munlochy above Inverness, I believe you are now banned from every crafts shop within driving distance of your home. And it ain't so easy to steel when you only have mail order as a source of supplies!"
I cant let one bad apple spoil everything, for I am very lucky to know and have the support of some lovely crafters who have been with me for a long long time. You know who you are, my thanks always because as a one woman show, mostly, this would not have lasted so long without the backing of lovely people.
Times are tough and I have to have positive feedback in order to fuel my desire to continue, without that I would move on. I need the luv, I know it sounds sappy but if you don't want it , why bother. That day will come. Nothing lasts for ever but for as long as you love what I bring you, I am happy to work harder, find cuter and share the sugar with you all.
take care and have a great day
