And the winner is......................

..lucky for some number 13

So congratulations Bonjen3 - if you would like to email me your addy at lyn@craft-emporium.co.uk I will get your goodies off to you.
Thanks to everyone for taking part and leaving a comment :)

Well the weekend flew by, operation "re-organise craft room" began in earnest on Saturday morning ! My brand new shelves were itching to be filled, but first dh had to take an electric saw to my existing shelves - everything was cleared off, shelves sawn and re-positioned with amazing ease (since when did he become such a whizz with electric tools ???) and then it was time to put everything back, now here comes the law of sodd - it never all goes back does it ? I had twice as much space and still there were boxes of stash sitting on the floor without a home..........how did that happen ? So it is still a work in progress and will post piccies when it is finally all sorted. I just love the little wall racks for my dabbers and inks, but note to self - they will NOT stay up with glue dots lmao, so down to the builders merchants to buy some "no nails" today and then it will all be finally finished.

Had a fab time on Sunday at my pal Penny's house - we played with grungepaper, stamps and inks and made loads of gorgeous flowers - I will post some pics as soon as I get a chance to get the camera out. Oooh finally had a chance for a little play with the Rock Candy Crackle too - brilliant stuff I officially love it !! Restocks are on the way and should be here at the end of the week.

Right, as usual Monday is mega busy day and I need to be finished at a reasonable hour as I will be dashing to my first saxaphone ensemble rehearsal - wish me luck ,or should it be - wish them luck lol !!

Fab weekend !!

Well it's been non stop since we got back from our weekend trip, no time to blog or catch up with anything lol ! We had a brilliant time discovering the Yorkshire area, staying in Knaresborough and visiting York, Harrowgate, and all those gorgeous little villages around the area - it's such a great part of the country ! We stayed in a beautiful georgian place - Newton House, if you are ever in the area I can highly reccommend it, the breakfasts are to die for !!

Had a fab time at the Great Northern Papercraft Show, caught up with Dyan and the crew from Art from The Heart, had a natter and brought back all the fab new Blonde Moments range for the shop. I did treat myself to some great storage units for my own craft room - we all love storage yes ?

It would have been a good idea if I had measured my area first though lol !! I now have to move all my existing shelves to fit them in, which is going to be a massive job !!! Still it will be worth it in the end.

Those friendly delivery men have been visiting me again lol !!! All in all 12 huge boxes turned up yesterday !! So now ploughing through them and trying to get them all on-line, Pink Paislee has arrived and is now on-line, 2 new collections, Twilight and Amber Road - gorgeous !!

Sassafrass Lass is next to be checked off and uploaded - so keep checking the latest product section.

Right better get some more work done !!

Every cloud........

Well we are off the little rock at the weekend to take dd back to Uni, I'm sure gonna miss her, and her organisational skill with the stock rooms.........and the fact that she has got all my accounts bang up to date !!!

Seeing as we are going "across" anyway it seemed like a good idea to have a few days away, so we are off to the Yorkshire area and I thought "what a great time to catch up with my pal Dyan and all the gang at the Art from the Heart Studios" - well, double whammy as it is only the Great Northern Papercraft Show that weekend !!!! Now how did I engineer that lol !!! So I can catch up with all the news with Dyan, have a few hours at the show and.....................bring all the lovely brand new Blonde Moments release " ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS" back for the shop - RESULT !!! I am sure you are all following Dyan's blog so you can see all the sneaky peaks from her new collection on there and wow what a fab stand she will have at the show !!!

I just have to show you this though.........

..........how fab is that ! Colour your own papers with all the lovely Blonde Moments Pearl Pigments - therapuetic or what !

Not sure what dh will do whilst I stroke paper and gossip, but I am sure he will find something in the area to occupy him.
