Well a third of the way through the year already! Wow this is going fast and we have classes, kits, projects and planning coming out of our ears! We have been cutting chipboard as fast as we can, as other stores are starting to stock our products, and we have been doing custom orders for other designers in NZ too! Think it must be time for some chocolate... don't you think!
I am pleased with the holiday programme, we have decided after so many complaints that we always manage to pick the week someone is going to be away, we will be repeating the classes on both weeks - this will ensure that if you are going away one week, you have a chance to do it the other week. That should make life a little easier, and get you less complaints for the littlest members of the household!
We have a lot of stock arriving into the shop, today a huge box arrived and according to the bill that just arrived in my in inbox, another is due in from the USA! Lots of new mixed media products and hopefully that includes my distress oxides finally being here after being missing! and turning up in a random warehouse in the USA! Yes can definitely feel a need for chocolate after all that!
Stocktake has finally finished after a week of counting every item instore! and we were so proud to be done on time, printed the final report..... and then we got an email from a customer, telling us he would love to buy one of our re-inkers but $3,300 was just a bit much for it, and wasn't in his budget hahaha.... unfortunately for us that meant a re-check of the whole report!!! Some one really needs to find that Easter Bunny early for me, and he had better have some yummy chocolate for me!
Have a safe and fun Easter everyone!
