Where the magic happens...

This months blog post is inspired by an image i saw posted on facebook a little while back. 
People often ask me where how on earth i have enough courage to take the risks i do. Well truth is, i believe in spontaneity. To push myself off the cliff, i force myself to do things that can't be undone, like quitting my well paid regular income job, spending my life savings or telling the world what I AM GOING TO ACHIEVE (as opposed to what i hope to achieve). 

I believe anyone can have strength and be spontaneous. The initial action is what you need to focus on to start with, not what comes after, because in all honesty, that's the scary part. Knowing that it's up to you to pay the rent / mortgage, up to you to pay the credit card bill, up to you to get people to give you money for what you are providing them with, THAT is hard. Saying i resign takes 2 seconds. 

I guess what has always made it easier for me to take risks, is not having kids or a husband yet that i need to consider.  But consider this... if you're not as happy as you could be, are you really considering them? The happier you are, they happier they are.

The Picnic Room has been a hit on weekends for parties and we have had some smashing ones so far. Like a Royal Fairy Tea Party, a Disco Ninjago (ninja lego) Party, and a Yellow Chevron Party.  

I just love transforming the room into something completely different for every party, even if it does mean late nights and a lot of hard work. Seeing the kids and parents faces light up is definitely worth it. 

We have a great networking night coming up on the 18th of April put on by Alli from Motivating Mum. All welcome, head to their website to find out more. 

Winter store hours will take effect from today but parties can still be booked for any time over the weekend. We stay open longer if a party is on. 

Monday to Friday 9am - 5:30pm
Thursdays late night shopping til 7:30pm
Saturdays 9am til 2pm
Sundays 9am til 12noon
