2 and a half months

Say what! I can't believe Rainbow Designs has been in Murwillumbah for 2 1/2 months already - to say time has flown is an understatement! It only feels like last week that I was unpacking all my boxes and living off M&M's (what's new there though!).

Touch wood - everything has been running smoothly. Toll are just as reliable as they are in Port Macq, the lady at the Post Office is lovely and I've made one trip down to Port Macquarie for a lolly restock (and to catch up with my parents). The only mishap I have had is with a delivery that went to my old address down in Port - thankfully I could organise for it to be collected and redelivered to my new Murbah address.

New tin design We've just got in!

I've recently ordered in a couple of new tin designs, yet to go up on the website, and I love them (hopefully you will too!). I've only got in a small amount to test the waters and if they look like they're going to be a winner I'll get some more in. The designs are a retro styled cassette player tin and a 'dice' tin. I can't wait to show you! I'm thinking I'll use the retro design for the 'Cravings' gift, it sort of fits the old favourites theme - in my mind anyway ;-)

I'm going to have to start looking at Christmas gifts and get them organised as, scarily, it's just around the corner and with the way time seems to be zooming by it'll be here before I know it!

My toaster decided to stop working the other day and I was really looking forward to a crumpet with vegemite! I really liked my toaster too (apart from the 'defrost button' incident a few weeks ago (cue the smoke alarm!). Now I have to use the grill and there's great potential for disaster and the fire brigade being called! Poor me. I haven't thrown the toaster out yet just in case it decides to come back to life.

Orders have been fairly constant but it would be nice to be busier. I thought I has this google organic search thing licked when I checked to see where Rainbow Designs came up in the rankings and we were at number 2 (for gift hampers) but it hasn't equated to any extra orders - disappointing to say the least!

My family and I spent many a Christmas here when we were growing up

So what have you fine folks been up to in the last few months? Anyone moved? Gone on a cruise? Finished your Christmas shopping??
