Okay onto another update about the shop........as you may be aware last weekend we had a everything at half price sale on the website.Thankyou to everyone that has ordered in this sale. To say we have been inudated is an understatment. Within 48 hours we had more orders than we typically pack in just a month.
We have been working hard since then to get these orders out, but please be patient with us....the amount we have to pack has been staggering...we have drafted in extra helpers but even then it is going to take some time to process them all, pick the orders and send them to you.
Vanessa took some photos today to show you...

 
As you can see there isn't much room in between everything...i woke up this morning with little bruises around the tops of my arms where i keep bumping into the hooks!!!



 
As you can see in the photo above...lots of stuff is in boxes...this box holds some thickers..there are another 3 huge boxes like this...so finding just one pack is fun!!!

We took all the cardstock out of the paper trays to be washed...ready for new cardstock to arrive...these tubs hold all of it...There were over 500 different colours, they all had to come out, be placed into plastic bags, labelled and then put in alphabetical order...that was alot of fun i can tell you!!!!

The shop has finally been painted...in a really bright orange...Vanessa loves her orange...and it looks brillant! So finally things are moving forward...and each day new parcels arrive with new stock in...ready for when we re open again.

Again all of us at Papermaze want to thank you all for offers of help and support,we have had some wonderful emails from our customers and we cannot thankyou enough. Love Wendy x

Congrats Lemon :)

It looks as if you are certainly not bored at the moment ladies! I hope you manage to get all caught up soon so you can rest those bruised elbows and look forward to seeing you back up and running as normal x

I cannot tell you how lovely it is to see such strength and positiveness( is that a word?? lol) I am so inspired by the hard work you have all put in to get things up and running again Ness and look forward very much to the grand re-opening of your wonderful shop when you are all sorted.
Keep up all your good work ladies and I hope your bruises soon ease up.
Warmest wishes Anita.xxx

My box of goodies arrived this morning - thanks. On the one hand I fee guilty to take advantage of your generous discount, on the other, if it helps you clear out ready for fresh stock, then I'm glad to help!
