i know it's not the end of the year yet, but there's something about the enormous lead-up to christmas day that makes me think it would be far more logical to have it be the final day of the year too.
these last few weeks in particular have been a HUGE learning curve - opening the shop doors for the first time was a monumental step - i've always had enormous respect for makers who have shops too (hello to Pip, Geneine & Matt!) but it's increased by ten-fold now.
on saturday i had a strange experience where i felt the vulnerable side of retail were i think i was scoped for a future robbery. awful, awful feeling.
But there's been lovely exciting things too - meeting lots of people, making good things & having fun hanging out with my new studio ladies have all been highlights of the last couple of months.
So thanks to everyone who stopped by at the shop to say hi & stopped by the blog too (even though i've been a little absent lately)
I can't wait for next year!
hope you have a great holiday :)
