North Star Hotel Melrose

Last weekend we hit the road and headed up north to Melrose for a couple of nights and stayed at the North Star Hotel (a Messagemark stockist). Denis and my friend Georgia are currently featured in an art exhibition at the Hotel which runs until mid October. So we thought we would make a weekend of it, head up on Friday to hang the art and then be there for the exhibition opening Saturday evening.

Georgia and I had a bit of spare time on the Saturday in between walking around the town, talking to sheep and little lambs and eating giant freckles from the corner shop; so we decided to re-arrange the retail area in the Hotel. I threw an old book shelf in the car as I thought it would come in handy for displaying the Messagemark range.

I'm really pleased with our efforts. There is a true science behind visual merchandising and it was fun to help Georgia work out the best display option for these products. The result was clear, sales started to pick up within the first day and many people were popping over to the area for a closer look. That's what we like to see!

I have to admit I think my Dinky-Dye range looked right at home at the North Star Hotel!

Germany here we come...

My very talented and creative husband Denis has received an invitation from Red Bull Media to travel to Munich for a TV interview!!! Being his number one Manager, I will be accompanying him and we have decided to stay some extra days to look around the nearby countries.

We are both very excited as this will be our first trip to Europe! Plus there just happens to be a full moon while we are there so I don't think we will be getting much sleep - Denis's Ball of Light is long exposure photography captured under the light of a full moon.

I think we might have to ask Red Bull for a good supply while there for extra energy!

Just letting this all sink in at the moment! Very proud of Denis and what we have created together. (www.balloflight.com.au)
