Where does the time go?!

Well I seem to have completely lost May somewhere, baffled to what I have done each day but it has flown by... but somewhere along the way finally found the sun!

At the beginning of the Month I had lovely celebrations of my Parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary - and lucky them they got an original emsOriginal illustration of there lovely lives together! hehe.

I'm really looking forward to this week, there's already a great atmosphere in the air in Knutsford as we head towards the Olympic torch run through on the 31st May, and then the Diamond Jubilee weekend ahead! We have been rolling out the bunting in the Cherry Tree Shop! I did have big plans for commemorative souvenirs but this got lost somewhere in the depths of the beginning of May! But i think now I will just soak up the weekend with the BBC coverage and perhaps a cheeky glass of something bubbly!

So what have I been upto! Well i have been really developing new ideas for emsOriginal and a new area of my business "Something Borrowed..." - I have a number of items I have been collecting for years, all back from the days I had big plans to become a tv&film set designer and now I'm finally refurbishing and bringing them back to life to become props for wedding and event hire! It all began with a little vintage suitcase, and a couple of bits and bobs I hired as extra's alongside my wedding stationery, but the ideas have really evolved and now I have a vintage sweetie cart, photo booth, croquet sets, boules, books and typewriters to hire! Just slowly updating the website with all props available ready for the autumn!

I'm really looking forward to June, I have finally got sometime to really push the new areas of my business I have been really keen to get to work on! And I will be having a little stand at the Plumley Village fun day on the 30th June so a good month to really get some new ideas and get creating with a nice day with family & friends and hopefully lots of customers on the 30th!

See you soon!
