Once They're Gone - They're Gone

We have a number of gifts which are selling fast and once they are gone, we won't be getting them back in (at least not for a while anyway).

So what gifts am I talking about?

Rocky Road

400g of Australian made Freckleberry Rocky Road - milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate (raspberries, marshmallows, salted cashews & caramel fudge) and 'fun' mix (bananas, raspberries, neopolitan marshmallows, mini M&M's).  8 Pryde soft centre chocolates are also included and it is presented in a fabulous, reusable round tin.

English Sweetie Mix

This gift includes a 1kg mix of delicious English sweets including Fruit Pastilles, Pear Drops, Wine Gums and Fruit Salad Gums.  And what's more it comes in a reusable Emma Bridgewater designed Polka Dot tin.

Old Blighty Chocolates

We love this one!  A delicious mix of yummy English Chocolates includes Ashbury Caramel Cups, Peppermint Creams, Strawberry Creams and Turkish Delight (15 of each) in a reusable round tin.

Licorice Lovers

Contents may vary but will generally include a 1kg mix of licorice.  How does licorice allsorts, milk chocolate licorice bullets, dark chocolate licorice bullets, white chocolate raspberry bullets, licorice pieces, licorice torpedoes and licorice cream rocks sound?

Fudge It
Three stunning keepsake tins featuring 220g of delicious English made fudge in each tin.  The three flavours represented are vanilla, chocolate and rum & raisin.

Other gifts that won't be repeated include English Sweets All Wrapped Up, the Nestle Chocolate Selection and the UK Sweetie Tin.
So make sure you pick up your favourites before they are all sold out.  Going, going...

When Life Gets In The Way

Okay, I admit it, today is a tough day; the last week overall being tougher than most.  Personal responsibilities have had to take preference over the business world and for that reason I have had to close the doors on Rainbow Designs for a few days here and there.

And that makes me especially sad as I really love what I do.  Every business has its frustrating moments, of that there is no doubt, but overall being able to do what I do each and every day is a blessing.

I love being able to help make people happy.  If I could, I would be a fly on the wall every time a recipient opened one of my gifts just to share in their happiness, but alas I just have to be content with the wonderful emails and reviews that get sent in thanking me for the gift.

But of course it isn't really me.  It's you guys!  You are the ones with the big hearts sending out gifts all over Australia making people happy, allowing people to fall in love with you and helping the sick recover just that little bit quicker because you care.  We all care.  And that's what makes this world a wonderful place.

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
By Emily Dickinson
