Birth announcement cards

I love designing and getting orders for birth announcements, the only problem is it makes me want another baby, but 3 is enough and at last I am losing weight, so another would be crazy. I am one of the unfortunate few who puts on weight while breastfeeding.

I am going to increase my collection of twins birth announcement cards and triplets, as I feel that it is a bit small at the moment.

I will also design a few more twins christening invitations.

Probably do all this while on holiday in france trying to relax!!!!!

A busy week

Happy Mondays is taking shape gradually, all very exciting. We are going to have organise a showcase evening for local businesses, have lots of local experts giving informal chats on SEO. marketing, how they set up their business etc and an xmas do.

I think Sue and I are going to be very very busy, but it will be worth it.

On a more personal point, at last I am losing weight, I could not blame Jemima anymore for my huge bodyshape, she is 2 now! So joined the tytherington club and absolutely love it, even if my pulse while exercising is through the roof. I have lost a stone so far - yipppeee.

I am also now exhibiting at the Baby Show Earls Court, in the baby boutique section, I can't wait, we are going to sell some new exciting products from Canada. I hope I get as good a response from this show as the excel show.

Off to the Dordogne next week for a well earned rest, well sort of rest as I will be taking my mac of course, got my mum and friends organising CocoCards from the UK end. Thats the problem with your own business never without it (quite like that actually).

Oh and Happy Mondays is now on twitter - HappyMondaysUK

Back soon

Mums who bake

I have just found the most glorious website via the Mums Club forum, it is www.mumswhobake.co.uk, it hopes to inspire you to start baking, bake more often, or improve your baking.

It has a shop, recipies and forum, and is just a lovely looking website. Hopefully it will inspire me to bake with the kids a bit more, but Molly only wants to lick the spoon and they both fight over who cracks the eggs, so I usually lose my temper or just bake huge cakes with lots of eggs in them!
