Tidy Workshops, Willing Helpers and Too Much Technology - it's all too much!

September went, October went (I got another year older) and now we’re having to think of Christmas (or not!).

Nothing earth shattering has occurred but we’ve been busy. The workshop has had a spruce up with yet more storage added (will we need a bigger unit soon?) and we hosted the Fine Art Trade Guild regional meeting (which is why the workshop got spruced up).

For the last six weeks or so we’ve been joined by Jess who is a graduate in Design & Craft. We’re busy showing her how to makes loads of mistakes in business with the hope that she’ll go on to make her own fortune and remember us in her will. It’s actually been great having another pair of very capable hands helping us get through the workload.

Finally, we’ve actually just sent out our first marketing email to those who agreed to be on the list. Yet again I’m having to learn new skills (groan) as I get to grips with just how complicated the rules, regulations and requirements are to send a compliant email. Hopefully those who are on the list will enjoy the promotions we’re sending them. And if you’re not on our list, just email me and I’ll add you.

More soon (or in 2012 looking at my previous record).
