Bad blogger !!!

I know, I know - it's been a while again !!! Does anyone know where I can get a magic potion so I can have at least another 8 hours in everyday !! Lots more deliveries keep turning up - I think the shopping fairy ordered them whilst I wasn't looking (that's what I keep telling dh anyway - he reckons I have more stock than our local Tesco's and why do I possibly need it all ? - er.......... cos it's a shop !!)

Anyway we have the gorgeous Making Memories "Vintage Findings" which arrived at the beginning of the week...............

Pink Paislee "Mistletoe & Co" arrived the next day but only managed to get it on-line today and there are loads of boxes sitting here waiting to be opened with the fab My Mind's Eye Life Stories 1 & 2 in............. no way can I even allow myself a peek in those boxes as I am off the rock in the morning and haven't even packed yet !!!! 'fraid they will have to wait now until I get back on Monday.

We managed to get as many orders out as possible yesterday before the strike and have lots of lovely emails saying they arrived today, which was brilliant news. I was mostly expecting them to get stuck in sorting offices up and down the country. No orders were posted out today as we just didn't want to take the chance of them getting stuck at the bottom of a huge backlog - after a long discussion with our local delivery manager we have taken his advice and posting of orders will resume on Monday. We are so lucky here on the Island as our posties are not part of Royal Mail and it's business as normal, however they will probably have a very quiet day tomorrow with very little UK mail arriving in the morning.

Yay this weekend I will be mostly getting messy !! It's the fab Artsy Crafty weekend down in Newport Pagnell with the wonderfully talented Lin from LB Crafts and Leandra from PaperArtsy - what a combination ! So off in the morning via the plane to Luton with my pal Penny, can't wait to meet up with loads of my craft buddys from around the UK. We even have time for a little retail therapy too before the event starts on Saturday - result ! Now that I have been reminded to take my camera (thanks Katy lol) I can take loads of pics and post them when I get back.

Right, I suppose I'd better get off this computer and start throwing a few things in a bag - or I'll be packing 10 minutes before we leave as usual - I am trying so hard to be organised with this trip - (think I've already failed miserably)

Will tell you all about it when I get back.

Having successfully ran an online craft shop for many years, the time had come to take it easy and find more time to create and play. Of course I couldn't leave it there and signed up as a Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. A fabulous range of high quality products and a brand new craft room, what a great combination !
