Alice Palace Christmas

This year the Christmas orders have been a real eye opener for me, without the wonder that is Lizzy (who had done it all for 10 years!) ...although she did pop in from time to time to help us out!

But I have really enjoyed it (and been so tired I can’t see/understand a thing, and scared and excited… all the emotions!).

I’ve learned so much, and have loved seeing the products all the way through from design, to production, to posting out. Mandie and I have made a few mistakes along the way, but hey we’re only human, and it has been even busier than last year, (and last year was busy enough!). I’ve really enjoyed being more involved with it all again, and working with Mandie has been a joy - she is real - but doesn’t like photos!

We’ve also had help from Bob Bob - who has worked with me printing and packing over weekends, and has also taken on the role of chief mug producer while we were so busy with all the auntie and uncle mug orders that came in!

And I’ve had lots of help with the kids from friends and family while I was too busy to do anything other than work. It’s felt really odd not doing the school run every day, and makes me appreciate the fact that I do get to be there as a mum much much more because I run my own business and most of the time I get to pick and choose the hours that I work. So overall very thankful, thank you!

There are some pics taken from the packing table…

I’m trying not to switch off too early - but really feeling the need for a rest now - only 2 days to go!!
We’re still accepting orders today, for last postage on Friday (20th).

We will be shut from Fri 20th Dec - have a lovely Christmas break, and will be back on the 6th January 2020.
