yep - today was officially too hot here on the North East Coast of Scotland
the dogs took it easy on their late afternoon walk which actually was wonderful for the Bean - her foot is much better but she is not allowed to hop, skip or jump just yet.......
so a gentle mooch in the forest was perfect for her x
poor Miss Mabel Moo has to be plastered in suncream, especially on her very sweet dotty ears and heart shaped nose - when you cuddle her it reminds you of being on holiday x
the good thing about all this dry weather is the chance to take pictures of new stock outside
everything looks better in a touch of sunlight
my website is nearing completion - i just have to type up the terms and conditions and we are good to go ......
the exciting new stock from Japan will not go on to the website until it has been shared with you all on this blog - the plan is to pop the items on for sale and wait a week before it hits the website and my NOTHS page.
items will be available as stock lasts - it seems as if certain designs sell out fast and i am only ordering in a certain amount at a time as my budget will allow!
the temptation to keep stock has never been greater :)
i have been thinking long and hard about how my two blogs work - up until this point i have been really reluctant to showcase new stock too often - i would hate to feel that i was forcing stock down your throats.
i am not keen on pressure selling and hope that i will never make you feel that this is what i am doing....
but a girl has to make a living when she has so many animals to feed!!
so - gradually over the next few weeks and months as Sea House is built and we move in to our new home, there will be a shift in how my blogs are used.....
Cupcakes at Home will be predominately used for showcasing new imported stock and sharing new creations handmade by myself in my sparkling new workshop to be.
it will give you the opportunity to purchase certain stock before it is uploaded on to my websites (Decole etc)
i will also have special offers and giveaways!!
Sea House will be the place to find all the animals, the chaos of living with so many animals, chat, laughter and tears...
the place where i can share with you all my thrifted goodies as i unpack all those boxes
a place where friends and most importantly my family can see what we are up to x
i hope that the change will be painless, i am very unsure about the whole selling via my blog so please offer any advice or warnings!
leaving you now as it is time for a plate of rocket risotto x
if you have a spare moment pop on over to Sea House and meet Rodders :)
