Red Tape Rant

Just a quick update for today. We've been working away making little treasures in the shop, and I just listed a whole bunch of new items in our Etsy store. Let us know what you think if you get a chance to check them out! (There is a link on the left side of the page.) It's always good to get feedback, so don't be shy! Are we asking too much? Too little? We're trying to do as much research as we can before the market begins on the May long weekend. This is a sample of one of the bookmarks I made today:

Phil came over this morning to go over what we plan to do with the addition on the shop. It will be an extra 180 sq/ft, so would be a HUGE difference. Phil and Jai in another shop built by Phil:

Now we just need to qualify for the loan, and then magically make our budget stretch to unforeseen dimensions. FYI everyone coming out this summer - be prepared to be put to work!
And I finally made a business card design that we're both totally happy with, but we have to wait to have them printed until after I've gotten on the Self-Employment Program, because the guy in charge said there is a chance we will have to change our name because we picked it out so long ago, and this is meant to be for brand new businesses only. Can you imagine!???! That's government for you. I'm hoping to find out tomorrow that it will all be ok, but then we still need to get approved by the Nova Scotia Joint Registry of Stocks. We know there is no one else out there with a similar name from a quick check on their database, but apparently they can be pretty picky. AHHHHH! Cross your fingers and toes for us!
