Once again the weather is doing its best to confuse us, rain and it's a
little cooler at times, though my husband is in the South Island, and he
says it is freezing (well for a North Island boy) and he has a beanie
on under his hardhat, so I guess some of us cannot complain.
What an awesome week, you know those days where creativity just comes in
and wham, the idea is there, it works, everything you need is at hand,
and you just go to it! No, me neither! No that's not true, I have had
some amazing days where everything went well, and then my order arrived
from overseas, and seems like I did't't concentrate to much when I put
the order through. Firstly, who knew that ranger did tags that were
30cm long, not me, but it turns out that is what size 12 is. Also
Adirondack do an ink pad that is half an a4 page, no didn't' know that
either, next time I will order in the morning when my brain may have
been hooked up properly, after the coffee has run a course through my
veins. Never mind, there is nothing like a learning experience to make
the day interesting.
So hopefully you have noticed the new Logo at the top of the page, I
love it. My daughter works for Tainui Press in Matamata and she
designed it for me. A new logo for a new business for us, still more
about that coming soon.
I hope you have joined us on face book, 1st prize has been given away,
and I will be offering another prize up soon, so if you haven't joined
yet, please do so.
