What an exciting day

I spent this morning over at the premises - packing orders but had a meeting booked at 12.30 with my printers. I seem to live over there at the moment, with so many projects on the go.

It's seemed a long time coming but today was the day, of the 'wet test' - to test colour quality, paper function and show-ability!

The printing press needed to be set up just as it would for much bigger print runs but it was a very vital part of the process.

Particularly as there are 36,000 sheets of wrapping paper at stake.

And thank fully all went according to plan, so now we have signed things off as good to go - I now have to wait!
I'm no good at waiting!!!

When I got home and picked up the post I was so pleased to have, at last, got my hands on a copy of the new Mollie Makes magazine. It has been like gold dust - a huge thank you must go to the lovely Nic of Nicsknots who kindly offered to send me a copy when she read my plea that I could not find one anywhere!

I haven't had a minute yet to even flick through but will have a good read later when I can find a quiet moment. Will let you all know what I think of it another time!

Oh and also in the post - the first copies of my Advent Calendar - so very exciting - I have wanted to do one for so long and am so pleased with it. I only have 6 copies and again, I have to wait - for the rest to be packaged and sent on!

Poor Jeff ( my husband and the technical one) is going to be very busy in the next few weeks - he has a lot of new products to add to the website in preparation for their arrival.
