Hello friends
Have you been wondering where Mitchell is???
He has abandoned me - my one and only employee! 
 Okay so that's probably sounding way too dramatic!  
Truth is, my boy has chosen to return to college so I must not complain.
He has promised to help out in the studio/shop whenever I need him 
so if you visit/attend a class you may still see him.
He worked on my new website and it made him realise how much he really wanted
to a job within ICT so he made enquiries and was accepted at a local college.
Elliott, health permitting, is also going to start at the same college studying
Business so they will both be together for which I am grateful.

Another batch of kits went out yesterday so be on alert and stalk your postman!
If anyone is making/made their kit I would love to see photos please -
I like to show them here on my blog and display pictures in the shop.
This is just a section of my work table showing a few kit elements.
As mentioned, all the kits are different, I've coordinated papers, lace, ribbon and twine - 
as I place each one in an envelope I say to myself 
"Ooo that's a nice one, I should have used those papers!"

The bird on the Tree of Life is definitely within reach now - I am so grateful to you all
for purchasing and making donations.

I'm back at my London job for the next two days, I use that commute time
to make lots of crafty lists!  So much planned.....
Take care friends.

Hi Christine,
Although Mitchell has deserted you he has probably made a great decision, and I wish him all the best of luck. It's a shame I don't live nearer, I would love to come and help you out. The new kits look great.

Hi Christine. Good luck with the college course Mitchell. At least he will still help you out when needed Christine. I hope Elliot gets to college soon. That would be a real step in the right direction for him. Take care.

Good morning Christine, It's a shame about losing Mitchell, but good news that he has managed to find his aim. Many young people only dream of what they would like to do, Mitchell has now taken a very positive step up the ladder. Good luck to both Mitchell and Elliot at college. Take care Valerie

Hi Christine
Well done to Mitchell! It sounds like he's made a good decision, but it will be good he'll be able to help you when he can, now he's had a taste of the 'crafting' life! It will be good that Elliot will be there too....something for him to look forward to.
Love the sneak peek of the kits....looking forward to receiving mine 😉
Have a good day at work, plan plenty on the coach!

Good Luck to Mitchell in whatever he decides to do. Glad both boys will be in the same College, they can keep an eye on each other.
What a busy life you lead - makes me feel tired just thinking of all you manage to do each day.

Hi Christine,
and good luck to Mitchell, I'm sure he'll be very successful in IT and enjoy it. And it'll be great when Elliott is well enough to go to the same college (but I strongly suspect they'll have a different circle of friends).
Keep going...........
All the best, Rose

Well that is exciting news. Mitchell will do so well as he's already proven what a talented lad he is and it won't be long before Elliott is there too. You must be proud. xxMargaretxx
