Crazy times.....

What a crazy cracker time of the year. The shortest day of the year has past. This for me is huge, I now know that I am counting down days to warmer weather, don't like winter at all. The end of the financial year is over which is fabulous, stocktake has been completed and only a little bit of paperwork to do. School holidays start tomorrow - Yipeeeeeee. Where did the time go. I hope the rest of the year slows down a little as I need to hop off the merri-go-round to catch my breath.
Some exciting news. I have purchased myself a new camera to take better shots of all our lovely products and reload on our website. The Canon EOS 550D is the newest member of The Nursery Fairy team. I have been dying for one of these babies for years. Thank you to Syke from Skye Rocket Studio's on all the great advice before making the purchase.
I have sent in my nomination form in for the up & coming AusMumprenuer awards. I have been having a few technical issues this week with my emails getting stuck in my outbox and messages being sent over and over and over and over again. So I think they received all my bits n peices a few times - oops!!!! So thank you again to whoever nominated, I am truely grateful & overwhelmed. If my nomination does go any further it doesn't matter I appreciate getting this far. I have enjoyed being connected up to Connect2mums and look forward to making more friendships in the future.
Late night shopping tonight, cold outside, sitting by my little heater just about to start clicking a few pics. So stay warm out there.
I hope that you too are able to catch your breath over the school holidays and enjoy the time with your families.

Fun at the farm....


Crackers, sparklers, bonfires, melting marshmellows, making tire swings, adventures on the rocks, chasing the cows, checking the crops, riding in old trucks, cheering on the local footy team,riding on the motorbike in Grandmas garden, feeding the chooks, catching up with cousins & friends & talking all night, cup of tea & cooked breakfast.
We didn't want the time to end, just want to move in & stay forever.



June Longweekend

I just love this weekend. Half the year is over already and has happened before you've noticed, nice weather isn't that far away, and you get to catch your breath & enjoy some time with your family. We spent our time out on my parents farm "Nyrang". This is my sanctuary, my home, my retreat. This is my cure for chaos. My Mum & Dad put perspective back into my life. Thanks for having us Grandma & Grandpa.

Shoplifting.......

I have just experienced the first product being shop lifted from my little store.
I have just googled "shoplifting" and found the following headings: "the art of shoplifting", "shoplifting tips", "shoplifting games" for heavens sake are you serious.
One definition of Shoplifting is "the act of stealing goods that are on display in a store".
Stealing definition is " the act of taking something of someone unlawfully"
Unlawfully is "no conforming to the law"
What is it with people thinking that shoplifiting is okay and that they are above the law.
What about guilt "the state of having committed an offense". What about shame "a painful emotion caused by a strong sense of guilt, embarrasment, unworthiness, or disgrace".
The next time you shoplifters out there walk into a shop I hope that you stop & think about these definitions, really think about it and go to bed with a mirror and wake up to yourself.

Nomination


I have been a little overwhelmed and very excited about receiving a nomination from Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards 2010. I have no idea how this happened, but i am VERY grateful and humble. I just love doing what I am doing.

When you are acknowledged like this I have started looking back on the past 18 months or so. The things that make me what I am today are all the highs & the lows of my journey, the mothers guilt attached to everyday I am away from my little chickens makes me a better mum when we are together, & constantly being inspired by other very talented Mums.


The things I appreciated & will never take for granted are the unconditional love from my girls, the never ending support from my husband who has stood beside me & held me up when i needed him. My family & friendships old new. The deal is I wouldn't be here without them all.
