Completely off topic? Yes. Moving on.
Another little thing I'd like to share is that we recently had an interview with Ann Thurlow, of 'The Buzz' - if you want to check out the article just pick up a copy, they're all over the place, and FREE! Or, if you aren't a local and don't trust Canada Post then you could always check it out online. http://www.buzzon.com/frames/frames_community. ( look at the top for the link to sunsets on the eastside).
Another note for the locals, keep tuned to compass to see our interview with Sara Fraser. Rumor has it that it should be running sometime this week.
Other then that I really have nothing interesting to mention.
-My driveway is muddy. My boots have also become muddy. But the mud covers up the scuffs, so I'm okay with that. :)

I think the moment that this company started to become a business must have happened this year. Now our meetings have more structure and 75% of what we now talk about is business related rather then clothing related. Not that I'm complaining, I mean it is something that has to happen if we want to be serious about it, its just simply occurred to me now that this isn't just a hobby anymore. This is almost a viable profit making company ( as shocking as that is to say!). I'm pleased with where this is going and strangely a thought came to me a day ago about what if we had never done the company where would I be now?
I think my life would actually be pretty different. The company changed me in quite a few ways and I am grateful for that. It has forced me to take things slightly more seriously then I did before and taught me that hard work pays off. It has effected my social group in the way that I have two amazing friends now that I could never forget for the rest of my life. It has taught me how to handle the real world and who to trust and who to not. It has taught me to be proud of my accomplishments and to never talk them down. It was something I could fall back on when I feel sad or something I can share when things are going well. It has shown me a different side of myself that I might never have know before. It has it's downsides but they are miniscule in comparison to all the beauty that this has brought to my life.
Now I guess this could be the part where I encourage you all to follow your dreams but to be honest this was never my dream. I didn't grow up wanting this, the opportunity simply presented itself. So I guess what I am trying to say is that take as many good opportunities as you can and run with them because you'll never know where you'll end up. If something is right then it will just click into place with a little effort on you part.
