New Store Opening / Blogoversary / Freebie image

Oh, please excuse me, I'm SO tired............ (is that a stress-ball in my hand??) haha

Well I didn't even notice that it was my blogoversary the same day we (Bec and I) had our opening preview night for our new 'relocated' store Scrappindipity.

I have been so busy, I didn't even notice.

Thank you to the ladies who congratulated me on the blog birthday!

So in honour of my blogoversary and opening the new store...... The image above is free for you all to play with. (Don't forget to send me pics of anything you make and I will include here on my blog) Why not make an atc out of her, and send me one to trade - I'd love to do that :)

It's all happened now, the store is ready for trading - tomorrow is our first official OPEN DAY, woo hoo... I have been plagued with migraines for the last 4 days (think it's my cracked molar!!) so I will have to find time to get to the dentist to eliminate that problem - hopefully it will fix the damn debilitating headaches. ( I just want to feel normal for a day )

I'm thinking of classes now, and what sort of things to do - so many choices and techniques to choose from.

We will also be looking at tutors for the new store, and a new 'inspiration squad'... we might call them something different, but basically they are the 'creative stars' who design gorgeous things from our supplies to show off to our customers.

Some social gatherings will be great too, and I'm really looking forward to that. There is nothing better than spending time creating and letting yourself drift off into the art world in the company of happy like-minded friends!

I feel like I have been MIA (missing in action) and ACTION it has been, I can't believe the work Bec, Craig and I put into the new store... doing it yourselves sure does make you sit back and look around you and sigh with relief!! (as well as joy) even all the back-breaking jobs like laying floor tiles!!

Every minute my muscles hurt It just reminds me of what we have accomplished - so it's a good thing really.

As for the photos, they are still coming as they are stuck on Bec's camera! I promise to upload a stack of the before, during and after pics when I get them. So please visit me again.



  1. A big congratulations to you and Bec. Lorri.
    The store looks fantastic and I cant wait to enjoy your workshops !!!

  2. OK you've given me yet ANOTHER reason to locate to Australia! I so wish I could visit your new store. I have missed your art lately, but I'll be ok, don't worry about me...teehee. A lot of hard work, Congratulations on the new store! I am sending you a "store warming" present. In America when someone gets a new house you bring them a "house warming" present....so well you get my drift....And where did you get that pic of me yawning at work????
    xomy lovely friend, Susan
