Diary of my week... up to now!

Good Morning Everyone...

What an incredibly busy week I've had! I can't believe it's Saturday already... where have the days gone? lol

As most of you probably know by now, we are having a complete rebuild of our kitchen at home, there have been so many workmen in and out of the house over the last 3 (yes, 3!) weeks that I feel I have known them forever! lol
Next week sees the beginning of week 4 of the kitchen which, I'm pleased to say, should be the last week...
It has been exciting, but very stressful, watching the old kitchen disappear and the new one take shape day by day...  now all this is wonderful, but imagine the fun I'm having trying to work around this with no cooker or water in the kitchen etc!... imagine how many times I've told myself 'it will be worth it'! :-)

In between all the chaos at home, it has also been soooo busy at the shop, with a workshop every day we are open :-) 
Deliveries from Woodware and Hunkydory on the same day, that took us two days to unpack, price up and get on the shelves so everyone can see the lovely new goodies :-) 
(I love deliveries though and usually end up adding most of it to my own stash lol)

I've also been stamping and colouring and making cards and prepping for my forthcoming create and craft shows next Tuesday... I love this part and it's always a pleasure to sit and design new cards :-)
There are some fantastic HOTP and Stampavie products for next week that it genuinely has been lovely to work with them :-)

Add to this, 5 Mothers day card orders that I had on Thursday! lol 

In between all of this, I have been doing my prep work for my Hayling Island workshops (I can't wait for this) and been trying to think of new techniques that we will be able to do within the workshop timescales! lol
My Hayling Island prep is ongoing and there is two weeks left to go! Will I be ready? Hope so! lol

So today brings us Saturday, another big workshop this morning at the shop 
(yep, all is ready and I am actually prepared for this one) lol

I love my workshops, love chatting with everyone and catching up with what we have all been up to over the week... and, naturally, sitting with a cuppa and a cake ;-)

Sundays and Mondays are days off, well, that's not 100% true as I am usually preparing for Create and Craft shows or my next workshops, but I am at home so I can work in a more relaxed pace... (with lot's of cuppas) I can't remember the last time I actually had a day where I wasn't doing some sort of work.... 
Work that I absolutely adore doing!, is it really work? lol :-)

Anyhoo, it's nearly 8am so I need to get off to the shop and get the kettle on for all my lovely Saturday morning group :-)

Have a fantastic, crafty weekend and I will see you on Create & Craft next Tuesday!

Happy Crafting!
