Well, February is almost over and I’ve survived the move! I couldn’t have done it without you! I really am grateful to have such awesome customers. I know I’ve said it before but here it is again – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! The offers to help move and unpack, the messages to ask if I needed a coffee, the flowers, the emails, the out pouring of visits my first week…thank you for all of it. Because of you, I keep going and I keep trying to make things better. Never keep telling me your ideas and suggestions! These are what I feed off of, even thought I might not act on all of them, I do appreciate hearing them.
So I’m now fairly settled in and getting into a routine at the new location, 353 Pembroke St East right behind Money Mart. Inside, I’m just trying to do some decorating but I think I’m happy with product placement for now. The biggest downside so far, I will warn you, is the winter parking here. Now that there is a second business operating here I will speak with the landlord about better snow management next winter. Right now it’s quite small and bigger vehicles have a hard time because the snow bank is taking up at least 6 spaces. Until the snow melts, I ask for your patience. You can park on Money Mart’s side, it’s totally fine and you can park on the street as well. Snow was removed there and there’s lots of room. I know that’s not the best thing for some of you but it’s a short term problem and we do the best we can until the snow is gone.
The first alcohol ink class with Linda Mills Artistry has come and gone. Wow, she is amazing. If you were thinking about coming and didn’t, you might want to change your mind. I’m so inspired with her creations I want to sit down and ink everything! There is a second class March 5 and watch for more information soon on her next class with a floral theme.

Don’t miss out on the grand re-opening Saturday March 23 10-2pm. My suppliers were generous once again and I have some great stuff to give away on the 23rd as well as for the month of March. Be sure to read up about it in the post in this newsletter for all the details.
If you are a website watcher, I apologize for being behind. Lots of new product has arrived and I’ve only just started to get things loaded. As always, a lot of times I sell out before it even makes the website! Hopefully I will get caught up on that next week for you.
I think that’s it for now, please come by and see the new spot when you can. I promise you will love it, I sure do! Until then….
