Each month I thought it would be fun to let you in on some of the behind the scenes happenings here at the Cocoa Daisy bunker, something interesting always happens when it’s shipping time! But first I should probably explain to you why we call it the “bunker”. 80% of all the Cocoa Daisy kit work happens in one room down in my basement. When I bought this house last summer I specifically looked for a house with a large basement and a room I could dedicate to all things kit related. Well this house fit that perfectly. I have a nice big basement and separate room to work on the kits. I had my brother install lots of big shelves and he even created some cool leg extenders for the tables so that our backs aren’t so sore when we pack kits. Well after having spent most of each day in this one room for the last year I have discovered it to be very dark and sadly a bit depressing! It only has one daylight basement window and a low ceiling – so it has been dubbed the “Bunker” a rather appropriate name. But I have some good news, across from the bunker is another room – originally intended as the boys playroom, but they never use it and it has TWO large windows, beautiful light and a higher ceiling! So the bunker has been delegated to kit packing and shipping and all the other work will now be done in my new office. I am working on getting it decorated and I will share pictures of it when it is done. For now though here is a picture of the Bunker (I couldn’t show you too much of the bunker, wouldn’t want you to see product for upcoming kits ):
Now that you know what the Bunker is, here are a couple things that happened this month. First I hope you all love the little fabric yo-yos that are in this months kit as much as I do! My Mother and Aunt made them, they are both very talented quilters and seamstresses.
That’s about it from the bunker for now.
Have a great week!
