I have had a bit of the good kind mixed with a bit o’the bad this past week.
As many of you know there has been a bit of an upheaval in our city and state this past week. That has meant the kids have been off of school for three days and every place except for the capitol has been a bit of a ghost town. Not great for business! I also had a broken keyboard (ugh) but finally got to the right person who assured me that yes, this is covered under warranty so I will be getting a new one. We also decided to take our house off of the market which is a bit of a relief for now. Our house is cramped but now that I am not there constantly, I know it is a bit more tolerable and with warmer days around the bend (??? right??) it should be ok.
I have also had some decent thrifting luck.
I also acquired this wonderful vintage skirt. This picture does not do it justice but I LOVE it and it just happens to fit, so alas, it will not be in the shop, it will be on me! With the skirt, braids in my hair and my clogs on I kind of look like I should be carrying steins of beer, but is there really anything wrong with that? I think not.
I have also been lucky to have friends stop by this week to help out while I prepare for a craft party, bring food (thanks Jenny!!),and restock products.
I love how Jenny’s blue sweater looks with the vintage denim skirt.
Getting back to the craft party, I haven’t had time to get an official brochure pulled together, but this is something that I am going to be focusing on in the next few weeks. The workshop room makes a perfect party room as well. We have space for up to 20 people! The room is available by the hour and we can customize the party for you to include everything from a craft project to cupcakes and decorations, or leave it as is and you can bring your own treats and beverages! I will have more info soon but let me know if you have a date in mind you would like to reserve.
Well, I hope that everything gets resolved soon and the kids get back to school, everyone gets back to work, and business picks up again. These are some pretty dark days but I think we can all see the light ahead.
And, don’t forget! In two weeks it will be time for The Luck of the Craft Trunk Show!
