So the great thing about my old life (salaried bliss) was the ability to shop on lunch hour, have vacation days during the holidays, and the ability to leave work at work...
Here I find myself smack dab in the middle of my busiest Holiday season ever, and I wonder..What have I got myself into? I can't remember the last time I slept more than 8 hours, watched an entire episode of glee without the phone ringing or emails buzzing. A night off, let a lone a day off I can't actually remember... Christmas shopping? Eek! So a warning to family and friends... it's beginning to look a lot like an Aly Dahl collection Christmas... Or bought from a craft fair that I am selling at... So what did I in all my wisdom and glory do? I decide to start a new website... WHAT WAS I THINKING?? First of all, I had no idea that when you transfer your domain name it takes so freaking long.. second of all.. I have decided to re-invent the Aly Dahl website to be a proper shopping cart based shop. So basically.. I am trying to re-learn the wheel during mayheimdom. Things (being the new website) may end up on hold should I actually have the mental break down I feel myself heading towards... bear with me.. I do intend this site to be much more user friendly.. but lets be honest it'll be a miracle if it's up before January.
I heard a quote recently and I wish I could remember who said it, but it went something like "My mother always told me that the only people who are boring are those who are bored".
I can confidently say I am currently not boring.
This Saturday I have a show being hosted by Babyvibe in Port Moody called the Holiday Family Fair, I am really looking forward to it. There are 30 awesome local businesses involved. If you come check it out make sure to stop by and say hi! Here are the details: December 4th 11am-4-pm at The Inlet Theatre/Galleria at the Port Moody Civic Centre (City Hall), 100 Newport Dr., Port Moody. The Galleria is a nice, bright open venue that is centrally located with plenty of free parking. It is easily accessible for local residents who can arrive by foot, car, or transit.
I am also excited to announce another fantastic opportunity and location I can be found mid December.. but can't say anything yet.. but as soon as I can I will let you all know!
So.. really the point of this blog.. and to make my long babble longer... if you are looking for my website at www.alydahl.com you won't find me there for a few more days, instead I ask that you visit www.silverfingerprints.ca (which is the website I have had all along, I have just been forwarding Aly Dahl to silver fingerprints until I was ready to develop Aly Dahl..)
PS if you have fingerprint jewellery you are wanting done for Christmas please get the order and impressions in asap as time is starting to get away.
