The end of the road...

A lot of you regular bloggers and followers of my websites would probably know that for the past 3 or so years I have been running The Chocolate Crow Trader - an online marketplace for Aussie crafters that all up has been running for about 6 years.
Well.......it is with much regret and sadness that I write this post……
Unfortunately the time has come where, with only a handful of ladies still participating, The Chocolate Crow Trader appears that it may have run it’s natural course…
Numbers have been steadily dwindling over the past 12-18 months, which is totally understandable in the current economic/retail environment. Many girls have left due to the need to return to full time work /increasing family/work commitments. Due to the downturn in retail since the GFC …sales are also fewer than they were earlier on, which also has a downward effect with members .
All of these situations are totally out of my control and I see no “quick fix” until things settle down financially. This has lead me…


It's a dog's life...

Here's a few pics of my old girl "Dusty" and the "old man"..(hee hee) doing it tough on the lounge!
She loves nothing better than to force herself in between his legs on the lounge (she makes room when there is none...kinda like forcing a hard boiled egg into the top of a bottle...you get the picture???) and then it takes all of about 10 seconds for her to fall asleep with her head (and feet) on his lap....and oh the snoring!!!
I can only snap pics of her when she's asleep as she is scared of the camera and long gone when she spots it...so I have to wait for moments like these...when she's resting (lol)...not that she's spoiled or anything.....
I only just got away with the top one before she high-tailed it outa there..
Till next time...Chris x
