And relax...

As I'm writing, I'm just in the middle of tying up a few loose ends before closing for the Christmas holidays. There's a couple of emails to be sent, one last Christmas order waiting to be collected and a few last minute things to do before we shut up shop for a well-deserved and long overdue break!

It's been a fantastic year; we've got a new studio (it's a pleasure getting up in the morning to go to work!) we've done more weddings than ever this year, worked with some amazing other businesses on superb design projects, and our stall at St George's Market is getting busier every week and our international orders are coming from more and more countries all the time! We've got a new member of the team helping make our paper goodies, we've got more stockists than ever and we're planning lots of new and exciting things for the new year to come!

But for now, it's time to finish up, close the diary, put the phone to voicemail, turn off the computer and relax. Relax and watch movies, mull some wine, catch up with friends, take time out to come back with our creative batteries fully recharged for another year of wonderful making, designing, creating, crafting & loving every minute of what we do.

So, from me & the rest of the arbee cards team wish you a very Happy Christmas and the best year yet for 2014 - here's to a great one for all of us!
