Love is in the air…

or is it greenhouse gases? In any case… Happy Valentine’s Day Eve :)

I thought I would have time to do a nice long blog and do some paperwork (seeing as it IS “paperwork Tuesday”) but it’s been swamped in here today! Lots of head-scratching, disoriented guys, too ;) Speak of the devil, there’s another one now!

7 hours have gone by… the shop kept me busy today! (no complaints here!!!)

I wanted to share a few pictures of the shop and some of the goodies we got from Deb Damboise. She’ll be happy to know we’ve sold a few cards and a few of the hanging hearts :)

Some of Deb’s beautiful handmade cards…

Some of her collaged hearts…

Love that lamp…

And last but certainly not least… a quick run downtown and to the candy wholesaler yielded lots of sugary goodies. The candy place made my head spin… and it’s even more dangerous going here than going to the grocery store while hungry, you don’t just bring home one package of something, you bring home 9 pounds of the stuff. I may be re-tiling the roof with taffy.

The next few blogs… my goals are to discuss the pitfalls of advertising locally, the Valentine’s card swap hosted by Tyn, another “calling all crafters“, how I’m lame and don’t answer all my email, my stuffed shell experiment, celebrating Arbor Day in style, how I want to build an igloo in time for the summer and other assorted nonsense.

    Mmmmm . . . . candy!

    The shop looks great and those hearts and cards are very cute. Glad the shop was busy!

    I’m curious about the stuffed shell ‘experiment’. :-)

    the weather here sucks, loved diverting my otherwise miserable wintered valentines day (with canceled dinner reservations) looking at your beautiful pictures.

    have a resting evening, i’m sure your store was wild!

    Pretty, pretty pictures! Yes, they make me want to go back to your shop very soon! Your store is so fun! I almost got dizzy being in there because I wanted to look at everything all at once!! And there were sooo many beautiful things to see in every inch of the place! Your store ROCKS!!! :)

    Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
