Where has January gone?

I can not believe where January has gone, one minute it seems like we were wishing in the New Year and making resolutions~mine was to get organised, and I continue to do so!

So far this year it's shaping up to be a good one; 

Work is progressing on the Driving Range, we are right on plan!  I shan't bore you with all the details like how I was very excited to be a proud owner of deluxe porta potties (as a female it was important to me and ranked high on my list!)  Especially as I will be spending my days over there running things! 

I have taken on the task of designing and maintaining our website which I hope to have up and running very soon.  Not only will it give details of our Range but you will be able to purchase our Green Joy products directly from it!  I shall post the link once it is live!

As word spreads around the community we have been approached by people/companies who are very supportive and have offered their help~people really can be wonderful and we are excited to be meeting them!

 Our hobby farm has a new addition~Amber the Australian shepherd joined us last week and is training up nicely! 

My youngest daughter celebrated her first Birthday this month, which really made me sit and reflect on the past year.  Time flies and before you know it they are walking and talking as if they have from day one!

My online businesses saw a few changes I decided to drop a site and downgrade one which I think I will remove in this next month.  I need to spend my time wisely!

I have just introduced Organic and non bleeding colourants to my Bath & Beauty store.   Watch over these next few months as my line is expanding!  Bath salts, shampoo's, conditioners and more are coming.  

As for Helsia Jewellery well I have found a love for Vintage and will be implementing more. 

Lets not forget the day for l<3ve~Valentines!  My products have been arriving online since December;

The one thing both my stores was lacking was products for men!  There is now cufflinks in my Jewellery shop and more beer soaps along with a line of shaving products will be coming to Hancox Homestead Bath!

That's the majority of January's news from Hancox Homestead, so I will bid you well and as always thanks for sharing in my update and on our journey.

Warmest wishes, Helen & family
