More Good Things

Firstly, and most importantly, I made a BRILLIANT discovery over the weekend:

Cadbury Creme Eggs are back! And to celebrate, we ate some.

Secondly, and ALMOST as important, here are some fairly ordinary shots of the new packaging. (They will ship out with the perennial favourite black waxed cord around the box, and sometimes a pretty paper band, but you get the general idea).

I really do love the packaging though. Very pleased with the simplicity of it.

In terms of other good things:

Sparky and I watched two (TWO!) movies uninterrupted over the weekend. We watched District 9 (loved it, despite feeling vaguely ill throughout 60% of it - it's a little creepy) and Adventureland (also loved it - very cute. but not nearly as cute as Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. If you haven't yet seen this, SEE IT! You must. It's cuter than cute. Plus it has Michael Cera in it. Win-Win.)

We also went out for dinner with my folks. I know, not exactly a raging Saturday night, but it was lovely to be out in a restaurant, talking grown-up things, having a glass of wine.

In terms of other not-so-good-things:

We've had huge amount of rain in the mountains over the past 72 hours and as a result, the studio flooded. The newly laid carpet is drenched and anything that was on the floor (display items, packaging, shipping desk, sign used for markets) is now also drenched and mostly ruined. Tis a big bummer, for sure, but thankfully the new packaging wasn't out there and had this happened before the Great Studio Clean Up of 2010 it would've been a whole lot worse.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, with more good than bad!

Love love love the new packaging!
How terrible that your studio was flooded, hope you can salvage some stuff.
to be honest we've had so much rain I'm surprised we havent all floated away!

Send some of that rain down here to Melbourne! Terribly sorry to hear of your studio flood, it must be heartbreaking to have to throw so much away. You have new shiny boxes though!

Haven't seen District Nine yet but I've heard good things about it, I know what you mean about feeling ill though, I feel ill if I watch too much Ren and Stimpy.

I think I'm probably the only person in the world who cannot stand creme eggs!
