Nail Biting news from Kitchen Sink

I return (again) from the silent corner of the Kitchen

… but with exciting news!!!

The past 5 months has kept me feeling a lot like this guy in the photo. Anyone remember this gentleman’s act from the Ed Sullivan Show (am I dating myself? LOL)???  I do and as a kid, I was mesmerised watching the plates spin as the performer would add another plate and another without any of them dropping.  For anyone who isn’t familiar with this entertaining act… as each spinning plate would begin to slow down and start to wobble … the performer would run over,  just before the plate fell and get the plate spinning again. He would run from plate to plate, saving each just before falling and shattering on the floor.  Back then… it was a real nail bitter! OK… so I digress.

While the above describes what life has been like over past 5 months, you might be asking “why” or “WHAT” has kept me on the run in a “nail biting” state. Our happy little 1922 – California Bungalow (which seemed so BIG when we first moved in with only an 18 month old in arm), has begun to pop at the seams due to our growing family, growing boys and growing business!  The GOOD NEWS …we found the perfect place for our family AND business to stay together and we are moving! Kitchen Sink Stamps, Inc. will continue to be a “cottage industry”. 😉
