Well it's been all go and it shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. I have just come home from a wonderful holiday with my wonderful husband. It was our 20th wedding anniversary on 1st July and he took me all the way to Boston (yes the one in America !!!!) for a whole week. Just the two of us. No children. No dog. No work. No worries. I am now sleeping for Scotland after walking the length and breadth of a truly wonderful town. I did manage to find a few jewellery and craft shops in Boston. I like to call it market research rather than shopping, but whatever you call it, it still involves money and sore feet. Yet again I am pleased that my shop is attatched to my house so there won't be much walking happening again any time soon.
On another subject all together, I am proud to say that I am now a member of the Angus Association of Craftworkers. I was invited to a vetting meeting this evening in Friockheim (even I don't know how to pronounce it) . It's a pretty little village near Forfar, so armed with my new Sat-Nav, I set off confidently, putting my trust in technology. What a wonderful invention! Driving is a lot more fun when you don't have to worry about getting lost.
Anyway, I met some lovely people who like my work and am now a member of the association. Basically, I get access to more craftfairs, meet more craftworkers, and will be able to promote Buy Design in new areas. As soon I get the details I will add links to the association web site.
