Good evening to you all. It has been a very eventful weekend. Yesterday was the official opening of my store JAZZLIN DESIGNS. Unfortunately the weather was terrible, and i'm sure it put off a few customers from venturing out, but still I had a nice day meeting some new crafting ladies. I have had a positive feedback with regards to the sensational sweet pea stamps that I am selling instore and I feel sure everyone will love them as much as I do by the time I have finished promoting them!
It was also my birthday today. At forty five years, I have finally taken a risk in my life, and I have to say as nerve racking as it is, it is also very liberating. Okay, it might not work out but in the process I am meeting lots of lovely people, and its giving me some life experience, as they say better late than never!! I had almost forgotten what it is to be anything other than a mum or wife, I have lost in essence my own identity, maybe this will help me re-find it. I know don't want to run my own shop forever, but maybe while running the shop, I will get some answers as to what direction I do want to take my life in.
Over the past three weeks since venturing on this journey, I have had such positive feedback from friends in blogland, and it has made me feel very humbled by your encouragement and kind words. I want to thank you all. You will never know what a difference your words have made to me.
So once again, I am rambling, bet you havn't missed that!! Now on with the reason for my posting, my little craft haven.
Finally Friday I managed to put up my bunting with the words JAZZLINS appliqued on it. Unfortunately you can not see very clearly from my rubbish photos on here. I am absolutely thrilled with it, thank you so much Lesley for making it for me. I just LOVE it! I have a host of very talented friends!!
So here you have it my little summerhouse! Welcome, and please come in ...........

As you all know I'm totally rubbish with my photo taking, but I have done my best to show you what I have inside my little store. It is not a huge shop, and I can't stock everything I would love to, but I can I hope offer that personal touch to my customers and I can order in much more than I have on my shelves!
