I cant believe its been a month...

since I last posted on here, I just don't know how time slips away so quickly.

I have had some family stuff to deal with, my Father-in-law has recently passed away and there is still a lot going on surrounding that so my time has been a little diverted recently.

So whats been happening at Love, Heart, Home since I was last here?....... Lots

I have been very busy at the shop making stock, fulfilling orders, holding craft groups and classes and time just goes, in fact I cant believe just how busy I have been so much so that I have employed my first member of staff, so a huge welcome to Helenne.
Helenne will be working with me at the shop and will be a part of the re-fit I have planned to make a second classroom so we can accommodate the never ending demand for classes in sewing, scrap booking, card making, decoupage, altered art, re-vamping and small re-upholstery items and they are just the ones we are either holding now or planning for the next few months.

It will mean cutting down a little on shop space but the extra workspace will be great, I am hoping to get the work completed over the next few weeks so I can get the new classes underway, I have waiting lists for the sewing and quilting groups so I am eager to get the dates fixed for these.
 So onwards and upwards we go, I couldn't have wished for a better first year of trading and we now have a great customer base with loads of returning customers. We are busy in the shop, we are taking more orders, we have waiting lists for workshops, so life couldn't get any better at the minute so a HUGE Thank You to Karen, Helenne and everyone who is a part of all of this.

All I need is more hours in a day and some time off to recharge my batteries but I think that will have to wait a while.
