What a difference a week makes

Well there’s been a lot happening in the past seven days. Let’s get the big news out of the way first the twits have new shoes… look at them pretty and spotty and red… the shoes not the girls that is. Birdie hated them for two days and wouldn’t put them on but by the third day seemed to forget about it and is now happily wearing them. Fingers crossed. This blog entry is going to have to be on the short side as the adrenalin, which has gotten me through this week has suddenly and dramatically gone and all I want to do is curl up and sleep. Last week I hit a major streak of good luck. It all started on Tuesday when I got featured in a etsy unfound treasures article, to reference a popular movie I was smiling like a Cheshire cat… I really didn’t think things could get any better then I got picked up by Design Sponge, THE Design Sponge, the blog I look at every single day – Wow, over the moon, cat that got the cream, smug, beside myself, all good fraises to sum up how I felt. It turns out DS makes a big difference to one person working alone, the side affects include, selling a lot more work than you ever dream possible, being massively sleep deprived and becoming on first name terms with the people in the post office. Tomorrow I register as a business, this seems very scary and grown up but it has to be done before I get in trouble for tax aviation. The photo above shows dear colleen HQ in Gillys hall, thank god they have a large house.
I’m sorry to say I have yet more good news, how sickening am I. I have a job at long last and it’s in Wellington. I’ve chosen a part time post down here over a fancy pants career job in Auckland. I know it sounds mad the Auckland job was everything I thought I wanted but things have changed in the last month. Plus Chris and Sandy who I’ll now be working for are the lovely people. Chris is a graphic and furniture designer and he’s built me my own desk to work at, how wonderful is that. I'm looking forward to starting on Wednesday that’s how nice these guys are. I owe a hug thank you to Diane for setting this up (I bought her the flowers above as a thank you, I can’t believe how cheep flowers are over here). While I’m thanking people I would like to mention the lovely people at the local post office who have been endlessly helpful and have kept me smiling. Paul at You Send It, what a guy I would never have managed to package all the orders without his help, all the lovely lovely people who have left me sweet messages and have stopped by my shop and once again Gilly and Unge for putting up with me and my mess. Ok not such a short blog after all. I’ll be back soon with pictures of the beautiful 60s desk I found and my plans to restore it, I'm so excited.

Here are a few other nice blogs that have mentioned me:
