February 2015

Post by Jane on Sat Feb 14, 2015 7:00 pm

Hi everyone,
OK, thank you for all your hardwork, I know exactly how much time you take over this DT and it is a lot more than our blog friends probably realise!
kiss  kiss kiss  You are all wonderful !!

Over the next couple of weeks I need us to get slightly ahead of ourselves please.  At the moment and it is just how it has happened with the problems at New Year, the deadline is on the Sunday before I post on the blog.  This means that when you are late with your posts and again, Ive been there and totally understand, I dont get a lot of time to get the posts sorted and you told what days things are going out for your blogs.  Also, importantly, we are supposed to let Kati know at least a week beforehand to check on availability of stock!!
One way is if you can let me know here of what products you are going to use beforehand so that I can tell Kati.  Izzy used to really crack her whip with us.....didn't she Neil back to work back to work  Haha!!
I don't want you to feel under pressure but I need to get us back on track as everything has slipped a bit on my end!!
Blogger is making my life a lot easier, thank goodness and I am so glad to get away from Wordpress.  We have already got 5 new followers since moving back and we are getting viewers from all over the world, USA, Ukraine, Vietnam, Europe and more.  The USA visits almost as much as the UK!!
Anyway, what do you think.....is this possible, please don't think I'm moaning at you cos I'm not!!!

I have to say, I was surprised that the deadline was so close but as I was struggling to get ahead anyway I kept quiet. wink ok, I'll try to get ahead again, I guess you're looking at going back to a 2 weeks before deadline?

The other thing, while I think. Can you check the link to the new blog from the old one? I think it's wrong.

Hello from Brummyland, just having a cup of tea and resting our aching feet! Yes the link has been a problem trying to rectify it now! Think it was me !!!!
Don't worry too much about getting ahead project wise, if you able to give me an idea of products in advance, that would be great. It's just things went a bit mad at the beginning of the year as you know but we can get back on track no problem!!

Seen anything interesting at the show? Well, I'm almost finished with Triangles and have started Brushos so it shouldn't be too difficult to sort out and get things up to date. I'm off this week too so I have a bit of time to work anyway.

The most interesting thing Neil, i saw at the show was.............
Pauline!! Laughing Laughing ptdr ptdr
Haha!! Lovely to see you Pauline, I thought we wouldn't see you in the crowds but we just kep bumping into each other!
Well Neil, the show was a little disappointing, half the stands were fabric, knitting wool etc, quite a few not there this year and nothing really new.  There weren't that many people visiting either, we didn't even queue for lunch either day!!
Can't say there was anything new and exciting.  It was nice to go and visit the show but probably not a great one this year!

hello, nice you got to go to the show, things like that can always change i suppose. as you know Jane i emailed about deadlines while back. I'm getting ahead a bit and will do even more so. I've 're emailed my Tando. I was so pleased to get that done in plenty of time too. :-(
another idea to give everyone a week to get the two weeks ahead again is possibly to do a revisited week. where we choose a post from the old blog where the products are still in stock. like elephant week. just a thought.

I have noted your idea Dawn and will run it past the boss lady at our next meeting which will be soon for planning.  I think the easiest way round it is if you can all have a think about what you are going to do in advance and let us know on the forum which helps in two ways.  One - I can let Kati know the products and two - so the others can see what you are all doing so things don't get duplicated.  Does that make sense??
I have to say we found the show a bit disappointing, no new products to speak of.  The stands were quieter than usual a lot were fabric, wools etc.  Still I wouldn't have missed it, great to go and catch up with people you don't see that often.

The end of another week......we are getting some nice comments on the blog, particularly from people that used to participate when we were on blogger before. I think it is looking a lot better and I hope you do too. We couldn't do it without your very hard work so thank you all.
