The Day After and Happy Easter

Hello friends
WOW WOW WOW...I had the most amazing day yesterday!
I received many supportive comments and emails for those who live far away.
Lots of people came to visit the studio/shop - I am so blessed to know so many 
kind wonderful people.
At 11am I put up the 'open' sign.
 I had intended to take many photos but I got carried away chatting that I kept forgetting!
I did capture my lovely friend Kate with her mum - making flowers from Spiral Blossoms. 
 It also felt like my of flowers and plants...
Alex arrived with flowers, this beautiful card and....
 treats for Bella!  
Sorry to those who I kept waiting at the till because I was...yet again chatting! 
I promise to get my sons trained up so they can help out 
(notice I did not mention that I would stop chatting!)
You all made it such a special day.

Now, I must wish you all a very Happy Easter Sunday.
I think this painting sums up the weather....perhaps we should all melt down our eggs and 
have hot chocolate!
Take care friends - you are all very special to me.

Hi Christine, it was a lovely day yesterday and so nice to meet fellow crafters, I have even met one who will be attending class on 5th May :-)

What was really lovely to see was all your Family there to support you, your sons, Mum, Dad and of course your lovely Bella, she loved the fuss and was so excited she didn't know who to go o Your Mum is such a lovely lady and she is so proud of you, as she should be.

Don't worry about the till, I ended up picking up extra items while waiting, I think it's a good selling ploy....LOL And I got to chat somemore to your Mum.
Enjoy the rest of the Easter Weekend
