Good News!!!!

Hello everyone!
Well it has been a lone time since I have blogged and I have missed it.
Things have been a bit up & down here and I have just not felt like blogging.
Christmas Eve Kevin was made redundant from work and it was a bit of a blow
but we did not let it spoil Christmas, well you can't can you.
He is still out of work and things will be tough for a while but I am sure we will get through it,
we have before.

Now on to a brighter note, I am not sure I have done the right thing but when opportunity knocks you grab it with both hands!
I am opening a craft shop!!!
It is only two units in our local indoor market but it is a start.
We have spent the last month getting it ready.

Grand Opening

JB-Crafting Supplies
Saturday 13th February 2010
1st Floor - Wath Indoor Market
Montgomery Road,

I am also doing classes in card making, scrapbooking and gifts,
mornings, afternoons and evenings.
I will also be running a class on a Sunday.

So if any one is interested in attending classes please get in touch.

I will have photos in a few days.

bye for now.



  1. Hi Julie
    Congratulations,will have to pop down soon and see you there,not too far to come,
    Hugs Dianne xx

  2. WOWEE!!!! Am so pleased for you Julie, I did wonder why you haven't been around lately. Sorry to hear about the job, well new year, new start! I just wished I lived nearer to you and then I would be around all of the time. So well done, good to hear good news for a change. Looking forward to the photos, big hugs Heidi xxx

  3. I wish you all the best with your new venture Julie, and hope we will be seeing a bit more of you in blogland.
    Happy crafting

  4. Wow Julie!! I hope your craft shop is going well!

    My partner Lee was made redundant last Feb and since then he's been in and out of jobs, currently he's unemployeed because he's been messed about by another company which in the end lost him his other job. It's such a downer on life when it happens. I wish I could get a job that would pay as well as he can get, but no! I am studying right now and have our son to look after so I don't feel as useless. I just have to keep telling myself things will get better soon!
    I can't believe your husbands company made him redundant on Christmas eve!! That is such a horrible thing to do!
    I really hope he is able to get a better job soon.


  5. Hi Julie, so sorry to hear about Kevin, Hope something comes up fast for you. Julie, congrats on opening your shop, this is a long time coming, wish you every success, maybe Kevin don't need to go to work but can work for you. LOL big hugs my friend (())

  6. Hi Julie,

    Good luck with the new venture.Maybe Kevin could do something like running the shop while you do the classes....hope all goes well
