Like Nectar to my Soul


Was it only Monday when I announced to the wholesale folk that I was closing that arm of my business????

The First 2 emails to arrive that I read around 7:30am
Before a shower
Before Food
But sipping a cup of brewed tea
Were
The first from my darling brother 
This compliment was wonderful
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OF PROUD OF YOUR DESIGNS 
OF YOU AS A DESIGNER 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The next email was from Anni Downes...
You are Awesome 
the note said and went on to say.....
LOVE YOUR WORK.......
I AM REALLY GOING TO MISS YOUR PRESENCE IN MY SHOP....
YOU ARE AN INSTITUTION....!!!
MELANCHOLY IS TAKING OVER NOW....

Oh this was one business I was so so sad to say farewell too...
Suddenly there was a crack in the fence that let light in..
I can keep Anni selling my buttons...
That then went to NSW Anni Downes at Bathurst...

Off I went to have a shower....then fix some breakfast...
In the shower I am thinking....foaming shampoo into my hair, water everywhere....
Well I can do this for Vic & QLD....
As I was emailing Anni back after breakfast...
I was lamenting my international connections & soon I had invited one store in FRANCE, another in Germany...onto NZ x 2 & Spain & there are 2 more I need to write to...
&&&&
I have energy, a sense of exhilaration as I package QLD store ADVENT Calendar in a box...my mind is creative & it was having a party with out me....

I now have more admin work to follow thru......


I read the beginnings of WHILE SHE NAPS.com newsletter this morning & got so excited again before breakfast.
RJR & Cotton & Steel story is about risk & about changing the patterns of what is being done...
This si about fabric & collaboration & one sweet young lady with an idea & the boldness to ask....BRAVO I say !!! 

The Newsletters are usually in the blog & the heading of this newsletter says... go seek it.....
