the workshop looked bright and cheery today after quite a few days of overcast miserable weather ... just look at the sun pouring in through my stacks of not-yet-rolled-but-nicely-cut-and-folded mini rolls!
Sadly, the downstairs entrance hall never looks cheery BUT it has now got it's very own Collection Point Barcode Sign *woo-hoo!*- I have finally bitten the bullet and decided that I need my parcels collecting rather than carrying them myself (or rather John carrying them because they are too heavy for me!) Sometimes John went by himself, sometimes we both had to carry & walk and sometimes we had to go in the car and park in the NCP to get them all there so I weighed up the time involved and costs etc and decided to have a daily collection - today is the 3rd day and it's marvellous!...it does seem a little crazy because it only takes 10 minutes to walk there but all in all a good decision made!
Oh and if you're wondering why the sacks are balanced on the stairs it's because Royal Mail charge more for collections from the 1st floor so I put them all in the hall just before they come and save a whopping £200-ish a year !!
If something within this blog or either of my shops inspires you then I am happy :-) Everyone needs a little inspiration now and again. BUT please do remember that I work very hard to try make my small felt-y business work and each and every one of my designs is made with a great deal of love and attention to detail. It breaks my heart that someone may abuse this blog and copy my ideas. On this note please remember that I retain the copyright on each and everyone of my products. A boring bit of business but sometimes these things need to be spelt out !
