Oh! my goodness I made a mistake with my stand number.  The correct number is B16 sorry for the error.

I keep forgetting to post here now I have my own Facebook page for the store,really sorry I should  copy what I have said then transfer over.   I will make a mental note to do that from now on.

Lots of new stamps have arrived and more will be coming in this week ready for the Malvern Show.  Some nice spring paper packs which will co-ordinate with the stamps are available.

I did enjoy my day at the What HiFi Show in Bristol, contrary to my thoughts yesterday.  Saw all the latest "techie" coming out this year in TV's, Music Systems, Projectors, sound systems etc.  I wouldn't mind one of these super size screens with the overhead projectors to watch all my crafting DVD's!  They do not come cheap and you would need a very big room but just imagine the enjoyment.  Howard really enjoyed himself but I managed to tear him away in time to get home for dancing on ice.  Anyone who has not watched Avatar the movie I would recommend it as it was great.  We did watch part of it again at the show on a 56" TV!!

Today I have been busy packing up stock for the show and also some orders have arrived.  Bella the elephant, the clear stamps from Wild Rose arrived today so they will be at the show.  Remember Michelle from Woodware and Stix 2 will be demoing on Saturday.  Thursday and Friday I will be stamping and colouring in using the lovely FlexMarkers for a change so do pop along and see me.

Will keep you posted on other items as they arrive.

Do have a good week and hope to see you all either Thursday, Friday or Saturday.  Stand 5

Hi Folks, Sorry no posts this week.  I have been busy checking over stock and resorting displays in the store ready for all the new products coming in later this month.  Sunday I am off to the NEC for the Trade Gift Fair.  I really enjoy it as I get to see my suppliers and their new products for the spring/summer season.

At the moment in the USA,  CHA the craft trade fair is taking place with all the new and exciting products coming in to the UK from the major american suppliers.  At the end of this month our very own trade craft fair takes place again at the NEC.  It is such a busy time but always very exciting.  There are some amazing products coming out and I get as excited as all of you in anticipation of seeing them all and choosing what I think will be best suited to my customers.

We had another busy day in the store on Saturday with our workshops.  Unfortunately 2 people did not turn up or call to say there was a problem.   It was a mum and daughter from Fareham in Hants. This left 2 available places for those of you who could have taken them up. I am so sorry for this as I know I disappointed a number of you looking for a space.

Here is a pretty card I completed while Claire was doing the class on Saturday.  I coloured the satin ribbon with a ProMarker to match the backing paper.  Hope you like it.  The topper is from a Kanban sheet.

Enjoy the rest of the week and hopefully we will not get any snow.
