It's October in an hour's time. OCTOBER. How did we get to this stage in the year again so soon?! The past year has flown past, which is surprising given how much has happened. But, here we are, in the throes of the Christmas rush again. Yes, I've said the C word! For us crafty types, Christmas preparation starts in the summer and I'm already at the slightly-panicked so much to do stage! But this Christmas I'm determined to be organised and that's why we now have 3 new members of the team to join me and Sarah - welcome, Briony, Louise and Val! So, to be further organised, the plunge has been taken and we now have a workshop! [gallery columns="2"] I'm really excited about being able to spread out and be more organised! It's a bit bigger than our spare room and will hopefully free the living room of it's piles of boxes, etc. The previous tenant was Emma from the lovely Showpony, which is why we have a paint-stained bath in there (used for screenprinting). I'm tempted to keep it and either take all my calls in there or start a dog-grooming sideline! Can't wait to get moved in now! But plenty to be getting on with before I do - including ordering Christmas cards, packing boxes and adding a whole heap of new stuff to the shop - keep your eyes peeled! Also, the winner of the mug giveaway will be announced tomorrow morning - remember to come back and see if it was you!
