Bliss. Pilar de la Horadada.....I could live here.
Up to last Friday, I hadn't sat at my desk for anything other than work and was feeling the lack of creativity. Nor had I been over to visit Shopkeeper Gal...and I was feeling the lack of a bit of shop therapy for sure. Managed to right that this weekend. And proof, as if I needed it, that the world keeps turning without me - big news at the shop. The lease on the premises has expired and the Gal has taken the decision to move. She's found a lovely, high street location in Amesbury, Wiltshire (the nearest town to Stonehenge, visitors!) and intends to move at the end of July. When the shop re-opens, there will be a different focus. Stamps, scrapping and dies will be the core stock, for these have proven the core business. Sound planning huh. I can't tell you how excited I am for her. An opportunity that not many people get or take - to blow out some cobwebs, 're-brand' if you will. And I'm excited for me too. (Obviously, I can twist this to feature me too.) I hope it will be an opportunity to meet new crafters, create some more workshops and revel in new stamp company stocks. Bliss, actually. So then of course, I was inspired and came home, cleared the decks (ignored the other chores) and played crafter for the afternoon. More bliss.
