Hi everyone, and finally summer is throwing her weight around!
The tomatoes need constant watering, and passionfruit.. we have had a bumper crop! I also was down the bottom of the section and found a very overgrown grape plant, and oh wow, were they something else.
This last two weeks have seen us really hitting the preparation of our kits and classes for the shows coming up, this has been a really interesting time, as Sam has been my right hand painter, gluer and general dogsbody, which has been interesting. Not surprisingly, she argues about everything I want her to do! Which in some cases has actually been great for the design... when you have been doing something for a while, you forget that there are others ways of doing things. (I also told her off for using her phone in work hours, turns out she was looking up the french words for our new coffee house, which is shown below, and not actually on the phone. Whoops! Mums aye!)
Aly finished her Print and Management diploma last year, so she is off to Auckland to receive her graduation certificate in a couple of weeks, so congratulations to her. She is also up for an award for the Top Diploma Student for her year so good luck for that too!!
We have been waiting on new releases from the suppliers, and just starting to see some of the product coming out, yay! Hope to have these instore soon. If there is anything that you would like please just ask, I don't want to bombard you with emails about pre-orders, but if you do like the look of something I can tell you if it is on order already, or if not I can tell you who else might have it.
