We've moved - yay! We've spent the past few days getting organized in our new building. The new building is still not completely finished so we are having to improvise a bit. Despite the chaos, we are so happy to finally be in our own space.
My husband has done an AMAZING job remodelling our building. His attention to detail and ability to juggle a multitude of things at one time are truly remarkable. Thanks, honey!
We started shipping orders today but it will take us a few days to get completely caught up. And, we have to figure out how to track down our USPS delivery/pick-up person... There hasn't been anyone at our location for almost a year so I'm sure it will take a few days for us to "catch" him/her. We may have to part with one of our boxes of Leonidas chocolates as a bribe!
The retail space is coming along nicely. There is still more work to do before we are able to open our doors again later this month.
Here's a peak of the shop with paint on the walls. This photo is taken inside the front door looking in... it looks small... it IS... but it is BIGGER than our last shop. LOL!
This photo is taken from the top of the steps you see in the photo above. Can you see my silhouette taking the photo? Pretty cool, eh? (I have a really small head! LOL)
On the home front, things are always busy and exciting. Nutcracker auditions were held on Sunday and the casting is posted tomorrow. Hailey is very anxious to see if she will get a part in this year's 25th Anniversary edition of the Nutcracker.
Today was a "watch day" at the ballet school so I was able to watch two of my ballerinas in action. There are only a few "watch days" throughout the year and my husband and I fight over who gets to go! I won this time... only because he was tied up moving the shelving units from our old location. I think I will have to let him go the next two times to make up for it!
We have been working on a very exciting project that you will hear more about in the coming days so stay tuned for more information on this. We also have a fabulous guest designer for the month of October. This month's guest designer was part of the very first A Muse Design Team. She is one of the most talented card-makers I know and I'm so thrilled that we will be able to share more of her amazing designs with you.
Thank you for following the A Muse journey through this blog. We appreciate you, our readers, and *love* your comments. Thanks for stopping by today!
P.S. We only have one phone working at the moment so the best way to reach us is by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
