February 23, 2010

I am FINALLY relaxing and cracking a beer - long trail hybernator.  Well it has been a crazy week and so exciting - John has been making these awesome displays for the store - the latest made by recycling a large window, a shutter, some old shelves, and some white Christmas lights- it sounds crazy, but it is PERFECT.  He has such vision, I don't see these things like he does, I think it is a gift.  Speaking of those with gifts, I have been contacted by more artists that I am hoping will work with us and join our family!  They include candles, felted satchels, beautiful seaglass, socks made from alpaca, dips and soup mixes, cloth bags that are both gorgeous and functional, and possible some landscape oil paintings!  We also may have handcarved natural outside furniture in the future, it is beautiful!  We are now working with 19 artists!!!!
More good news - tonight John found out our register WILL work with quickbooks which means a lot less work for me - YEAH!  AND our cousin found us a refridgerator/freezer that will work in the store for non-displayed items!  That will save us a lot of money - which is exactly what we need!
Sad news is that Willow and Violet will not be joining us in celebrating our grand opening - mother nature is making me wait :(  In the meantime my sister-in-law has agreed to bring her mini goats for show and my sister Leanne may have a friend with some happy rabbits to hang out for the grand opening (which is the weekend before Easter).  There are about a million things to do and only 5 weeks left to do it!  make that 4.5 weeks - AHHHHH!  Be well!
