But the CHA news and blog candy is not over yet !! We still have loads of pictures of the show and all the goodies we have ordered, but we are keeping a few of our new suppliers "under our hat" for the time being, well, you need something new to look forward to as well as all the regular favourites lol ! Talking of favourites.... Cosmo Cricket have three new bright and fun collections which will be shipping to us shortly "Material Girl", "Joy Ride" and "Garden Variety"
I love the new Chipboard Letters and Tiny Alphas !! The good folks at Cosmo have been very generous and we have one of the new 12 x 12 Paper Crafting Kits up for grabs for Blog Candy today, I'm not sure which one it is, as all the paper and goodies have been safely packed and are at the bottom of a very large suitcase LOL !! Just leave a comment as usual !
To answer a few questions from the previous posts, not sure when OA will be ready to ship, but not too long to wait I don't think. Yes, we have ordered the Donna Downey Canvas Albums and Camera Bags etc. and no, sorry but the cupcakes and stands are for display only LOL !! OOh and yes we have ordered ALL the new Tim Holtz Stamps and the Inks....and the new Dies and the Book, and the new Enamel Accents, (they are not due for a while yet though) and everything else new with his name on as well LOL
That's all for now as we are heading off to a fab Blues Bar and Restaurant on Fishermans Wharf for dinner (how cool does that sound !)

We are now back from our holidays, Christmas has been and gone for another year, deccies are back in the loft and here's to the start of a brand new decade ! The last couple of days have seen us catching up with all the orders placed whilst we were away, and sorting through tons of emails, we should hopefully be all back to normal by the end of the week, whatever "normal" is in this madhouse lol !!
Pink Paislee's new valentine range "Cupid" was waiting for us when we got back, and is now uploaded to the website here
Well, it's that time of the year again when our inbox is red hot with all the latest news and releases ready for CHA at the end of the month and it won't be long before we will be packing our bags ready to fly out to LA for some serious spending !!
We are busy filling our schedule with appointments and meetings with existing suppliers and we have already made some exciting new contacts for some lush new product lines.... sshhh !!
So...... if there are any products you want to see at the Craft Emporium this year then just let us know, as the old saying goes - we can't please all of the people all of the time, but we will try to please as many of you as possible LOL !!

- 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 !
