Well, it was a great year. Denise and I started the store in February, when the first listings were listed. Oh, the horror of those nasty first photos with the sad old camera. They came a long way if I do say so myself.
We had really mindblowingly exciting highs, and some uberpoopy pits of hades lows. Denise rubbed her forehead as if doing a business plan several times. I pleaded with fabric and various sewing implements to 'just do what I f***ing want you to f***ing do', and I said 'bugger' a lot.
There where many 'business' meetings with Effiehandmade. To whom I owe a debt of gratitude for the oodles of advice and super kind words of encouragement. She is one smart lady. She even reads instructions and stuff.
I would like to thank the friends and family (and you know who you are *wink, wink*) for all their 'card' carrying support. We couldn't have done it without you. Hugs!!!
And, man I'm getting all gushy now, thanks to the best-est business partner and BFF in the world, my sister Denise. I would not do this wacky thing with anyone else. Even after all the temper tantrums and screaming and dippy bakes. 'Ain't no stoppin' us now.... we're on the move'!!!
Here's to the splendors of 2010. F*** yeah!!!
Ok, starting the year looking for my Jamie Fraser!
Running though every pair of standing stones I can find.
OMG!!! Look, a young Jamie!!! Bliss.
