Quick update!

Hello friends! Its been ages since my last posts ..... where does the time go?? So here's a very quick update!
Things have been busy at the Lanternshop - my assistants have been working very hard too!!
We've had a container arrive which has been fully unpacked - lots of nice new paper lanterns and lighting!!
Behind the scenes we have been working on the new website! A bigger, better and more beautiful site which is going to run much more smoothly than the existing one. Hopefully this will be launched in the next week - and ALL of the new products will be available then too!!
The next container has been finalised - this should be here at Xmas! What an awesome present for myself!!! :-)
My Chinese is progressing nicely (but slowly) and I'm proud to announce I can now write my name in Chinese characters from memory!. My name is Ying Hua (cherryblossom). I'm planning another trip in the new year ..... so had better keep studying ferociously.

Just one picture today - its my new favourite colour in the paper lantern range - EMERALD! Love it.

Wishing you all a very happy week ... and I'm hoping to be back to regular blogging soon xo
Karen, Patsy & Frankie

I'm impressed that you're learning Chinese, it seems like the hardest language... probably due to not using "real" letters!

Kisses and hugs
