Happy Monday ladies,

Well sorry I haven't posted through the weekend we have been away for a few days taking our family to North Wales... NO INTERNET ...none ... it was quite strange but actually enjoyable and gave me time to reflect .

We had a fantastic time in Prestatyn we went to the beach and let the fur monsters of their lead for the first time ever. It was amazing to watch them running around totally free they loved it , and they did come back when called. I didn't enjoy having to bathe and dry them after they had rolled around in sand a sea water though I can tell you it was a task and a half to get them clean.

So fully refreshed and raring to go I am back to work today getting the new store ready to launch. its dragging on a bit I think I lost a bit of oomph where selling is concerned . I never was meant to be a seller it all happened quite by accident ...... ( wavy lines as we go back in time and reflect wooooo)

About three years ago I (stupidly) showed some ladies the laces I was getting for my self and soon had requests to get them the same ... Well the requests got to where it was every week and for ten or more people....so I decided to buy in bulk and sell it on ....Scrimpy's was born. It been quite hard work not even always fun , but I have met some wonderful ladies along the way many who I know will be life long friends.

And so the expansion continues .....

I came home to a wonderful Stampin Up parcel wahooooo my favourite kind at the moment . I finally got a decent corner rounder ...aren't we crafters sad that a specific punch can make us so happy, we feel it will make our lives so much easier ha ha ha .... but well I needed it ! I also managed to get my hands on an exclusive stamp only available if you spend over £150.00 .... one little perk from Scrimpy ladies ordering their smaller orders via me means the rewards come to me I had £10 this last time so got the love you lots stamp set click this link to see it , its a great set such fun If i get chance to claim another I will and maybe do a give away with it . http://www2.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141801

I also have received my new pet clippers and so will have two socially awkward hair cut dogs before too long ha ha ha ha .... Like anything else it will be practice but it has to be better than paying £90 every five weeks crikey ...and mehh it will grow back. I will of course Youtube how to do it as I do with most things. Or google how would I manage without google . I wouldn't be able to spell or cook without google thats for sure !.

OH YES I forgot more big news ... well big for me ..in hindsight dull for you but hey its my blog I'm telling you anyway ...I reached my 4 thousand subbies on Youtube yayyyyyyy  (spell check always want to put hubbies instead of subbies !! what the heck I don't want 4 thousand hubbies thats for sure !) Ok I'm going I feel your eyes rolling at me ha ha ha ha ha ha.

And so until tomorrow when we shall have another episode of ...has she done that blooming shop yet I bid you farewell .... A
