A littl poem stolen from another blog that i thought you all might appreciate.
The summers gone, the years have passed, My friends have changed, a few did last. The smallest dreams got pushed aside- The largest ones, they changed my life. And all I wished for has come to pass From rock and roll, to love and cash. It’s all success if it’s what you need, Do what you like and do it honestly"
A little something not necessarily about doing things right, but about doing what you love, well. A little like my business philosphy.
You may not get things right the first time, but do what you do well and respect others in doing so, and they'll forgive the mistakes, and come back time after time.
For those of you that are friends, family or clients - I say thankyou for supporting me, and joining me here.
For those of you here for the first time - Welcome, and i hope you come back again.
This blog will be here 24/7 to keep you updated on whats new with me and my family, whats new with the store, and any discounts and freebies which may be coming your way, so keep coming back because you might pick up something great!
Well Purple Tartan Turtle has just recently celebrated its first birthday, and well we are still here so, with that i have to say thankyou to all clients who kept me and my dream alive. I must say i should really rename it Phoenix, because im surprised it has survived with the year me and my family have had. With me running around after my oldest, who has just gone 19 months old, my husband doing split shifts at work, losing my dear father in december to cancer, and giving birth to baby number 2 in febuary, its been super hectic, and i no longer know what sleep is. We have also recently purchased a block of land in country South Australia as well, and so now i am chasing a paper trail of plans and orders to get that ready for habitation early next year. - Saying all of that, if i dont reply to your emails immediately, please be patient, i will get to you, i just need a spare five minutes to do so.
Ok, moving on - now to tell you about Purple Tartan Turtle, bored with the simple household tasks and severely missing my old workaholic lifestyle a day of silliness evolved, involving a bottle of champagne and three giggly girlfriends. An idea hatched and after many months of planning, research and a whole lot of money. (Girls you know who you are THANKS!) PTT came to fruition in March 2008.
