So did I finish the spare room make over on the weekend? No - I didn't even start it - But I did manage to cross off a few things on the list of things to do before the house goes up for sale. I de-cluttered a number of areas in the home and also tidied up our back area.
I think the sun shining briefly into this area had me motivated to give it a clean and tidy
This area at the back of the house became a vision about 4 years ago and luckily a friend's hubby is a builder and was able to put my vision into reality. We have loved spending time in this area and many happy family gatherings have been in this room.
I have decided that I will be taking all of my own photographs for the real estate agent. After looking through the real estate site over the past few weeks some of the photography leaves a lot to be desired ! I really do not want to look at walls and doors which seem to feature in most of the photo's and not the attributes of each house.
I still feel very sad about selling the house but I know that with 3 acres and a 32 square house that it is not practical for us moving forward. We need a small house with low maintenance gardens and a studio room for me and that's about it.
Our future plans include growing a business in the craft & quilt industry and we have spent many many weeks planning out our future around that.
We have spent the last month setting up the business, registering it and doing all of the legal stuff as well as having a logo designed and new stationary, signs etc made. Our new business will not be your typical on-line style business but instead a roving and newsletter based business with a few twists and turns. We have many monthly clubs planned and will be running 4 brand new BOM programmes in the next few months.
And now for the unveiling of the new business logo and name :-
It is .........
The lovely Keren over at Free Pretty Things designed my new logo based on my Designs By Fee Logo and I have to say that I love it.
I will still be designing under the "Designs By Fee" brand but our new retail arm is called "Fee's Shabby Shack" and it is coming to a city near you in 2013. Yep we are all booked and deposits paid for the Australian Quilt Show Circuit in 2013. We even have airfares booked ! We have been very busy planning out a new path and it all begins in the next few weeks.
I have a Business Launch Party planned and you are all invited. There will be lots of giveaways, party games and lots more........
So if you do not want to miss out on anything then make sure that you are signed up to the newsletter. You can do this on the right hand side of the blog.
I had better get back to my planning. Enjoy your week.
