Delectable Unveiled!

3 stressful weeks later;
the hoardings were ready to be pulled down...Business begins the next morning; whether I chose for it to or not,
lacking of sale products and lacking of sleep... I took a step backward and began beaming from ear to ear.
I placed a couple of cakes in the center for fun;
The Delectable Store glows just the way I've dreamt it to




The boys did an amazing job with constructing my white timber panels,
Dad made excellent decisions, sis gave invaluable pointers and mom stayed up with me through my nights of production till dawn.

It will be my third day in the Delectable retail outlet tomorrow. I've not slept in days from the excitement and support I've been getting with our daily products.
I don't know how much more I can take. 2 hours of sleep a day and a coffee each meal isn't going to cut it. Has my life now been reduced to this? *laughs*
I guess after this weekend's mother's day rush I'll be able to do more and take a rest.
I've got to be up in an hour, baking more sugar cookies till we open at 10am.
Fret not; blog updates remain despite Su's lack of free time.
A big hug and thank you to blog readers who have came by to say hey! TOO SWEET of you all!
When things settle; I want to have a big party with lots of yummy things for everyone at the shop. It's too cool to have a space in a mall. I'm loving it.

I know this isn't how I generally would write. Just a little too tired to be descriptive at this point.
....
*snore*.....

nice retail shop design. where did you draw your inspiration from? cute little bunnies you have on the poster. are they that the mascots for the concept shop? did you do the interior designing yourself?
