We get by with a little help from our friends

Today was all about the muscle.
We called on our nearest and dearest to shift large furniture, climb ladders, solve problems, and generally help us power through the insanely large To Do List that is our lives at present. Many thanks to all who gave us their time today - it is so very much appreciated.

A very special thank you to our friend Jenna for her assistance with our signage preparation - she's saved us countless hours! You can view Jenna's amazing studio jewellery here and in Making Spaces from 20th July.

We continue to eat, sleep and breathe Making Spaces.
As you could imagine, life is frantic at the moment, but in the most wonderful of ways!

Bringing in the troops!

When there is a shop to prepare and you've several children underfoot due to 
school holidays, there's only one thing for it. Put them to work of course!

Time to get busy!

It's all coming together! Many hours have been dedicated to this project so far, in terms of planning and discussing and dreaming, going as far back as November 2010.

As you know, we were allocated a shopfront under Pop Up Parramatta only 2 weeks ago, and since then we've spent a lot of time doing this....

And today, we got the shop keys!

We couldn't be happier

Over the next week we will be conducting very secret shop business,
getting things ready for our grand opening on 20th July 2011!

We are part of such a wonderful and supportive community, and we thank you for spreading the handmade word about this exciting venture! Make sure to check out our dedicated featured designers page and please continue to let your friends and family {both designers and customers} know all about Making Spaces.
