Its already the 5th of the month, and I haven't even wished you all a Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely New Year and have enjoyed the holiday time, we have had a lovely break and I am now gearing up for a big 2016!
Yesterday I spent some time cleaning up the shop and rearranging things, trying to create a bit more space in there. I can't believe this time last year I was dreaming about this studio/shop, it feels like it's been around for longer than10 months, I have certainly filled the space very quickly!
It looks so nice now all tidy and inviting, I just had to take a few photos. It is so much fun and I feel lucky to have a physical shop that people can come to and but their yarn. Online is great, but I love being a shopkeeper and I think having both an online presence and a bricks and mortar shop means I can reach a lot of people and share some gorgeous yarns!
......my shelves of glorious MoYa and Vinnis colour yarns, it is hard to part with this lovely stuff.......
....there is actually room to move around without bumping into things now! Yay! ........
........I love my shelf of Misti Alpaca yarns, so colourful and touchable!!.......
.........I managed to find room to bring back my little couch, so happy with this, it's a great spot to crochet and a bit more comfy than the table and chairs..........
I feel quite energised by my tidy up, I can't wait to work in my shop this year.
I have decided to open more often, I am thinking Monday to Thursday 10.30am -2.30pm, and other times by appointment still.
I am also going to start advertising that I am here a lot more, I don't think many people know the shop exists as we are not on a main street and are a bit tucked away.
Hopefully the shop can get better known in 2016. :)
I think a restructure of classes and crochet groups is also on the cards, something to work on later in the week!
So are you all ready for a great new year?
What plans are you making for 2016?
I have lots, I love beginnings, I'm just not that great at following through on things, something I am very aware of and am trying to address this year! :)
