One beautiful Weekend!

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend.  It was great to have the sunshine at last.   I think everyone had the "Barbies" and Sunloungers out.  The parties and music were all in full swing when we returned home from our day out.  I do love the music but someone was playing the same tune over and over again.  Did get a bit monotonous after awhile.  Still never mind. There was no class on Saturday, however a few people popped in for a coffee and a chat which was really nice.  Josie brought me a lovely bunch of flowers and the perfume was amazing.  Last week Mair gave me a lovely cashmere pashmina in my favourite  shade of pink which she brought back from her holiday abroad.  How lucky am I to have such wonderful friends! Dare I say that christmas items will be arriving sometime this week.  We have a few Christmas Dies in stock now with more arriving in the next few weeks.  Have had some interesting feed back from CHA in America regarding new products so will keep you posted over the forthcoming weeks as the stock arrives.

Take care and enjoy the sun while it lasts.  Lets hope long enough for the Olympics to take place.

  1. Hello Everyone, another weekend and wet again! The only good thing about the rain it gives us plenty of time to stay indoors and craft!! There are some new Marianne dies in stock , new Stampavia clear stamps, papers etc. Pop along if you have time and see them. Most will be on the website from Monday. We had a great day with Claire in our workshop. We used a Woodware Clear Set - Frigates. Great cards for men, children and teenagers. Here are some samples to let you see what you can acheive with the set. I also have loaded on 2 parchment cards completed by Jenny one of our customers. She certainly has advanced in her parchment skills over the the last few months and is self taught. I also attach a card I made using the new Layer Perfect tool. This is my first try and I was quite pleased with it. This was Michelle's idea and as usual she was quite right in saying, it is not just for matting and layering! I am sure over the next few months she will come up with loads of ideas for it's use. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and lets hope we get some sunshine tomorrow.
    Happy Crafting ...
