Meltdown !!!

Not sure whether that means me or the website...........or both !!!

First of all an apology, I did say in the newsletter that although I was heading off for a short break next week, orders placed up until Friday midnight would be depatched before I left.......well, I sort of "over extended" myself - the sheer volume of orders over the last 48 hours have been phenomenal !! There was no possible way that we could have got them all despatched before leaving, so rather than disappoint anyone by having to wait, an executive decision was made and the cut off point was changed to Wednesday midnight. All orders placed up to that point will be despatched before leaving. So basically anyone who placed their order before the notices went up on the site can rest assured they will not have to wait until afterwards.

Tim's brand new book came and went in the blink of an eye - wow I have never seen anything like it, and we ordered loads !!!!! You'll be pleased to know that we have re-ordered it and it will be back in stock soon.

Another favourite amongst the new arrivals is The Crafty Chronicle by Donna Salazar.....

The paper it is printed on was chosen for the way it reacts with paint and can be formed into flowers. You can create your own unique embellishments with dictionary, wanted ads, horoscopes and even the articles on the front page. More product info on the website !

So where am I going next week ? ........ I am so excited as I am heading up to Harrogate to the wonderful Art from the Heart Studios YAY !!!
2 days of workshops in Art Journaling with the very talented Dina Wakley and Dyan's own Art Journaling Weekend to follow - how cool is that - I am hoping that some of that amazing talent from both Dyan and Dina will rub off on me, my mojo seems to be sadly lacking at the moment LOL !!!

A rather yummy delivery (yes another one !) is taking a little while stuck in customs at the moment, but will hopefully arrive in a few is a little hint.........and don't look too closely at the colouring in - it's my first time with this kind of thing, I don't normally "do" cute !!

The stamp is of course by The Greetings Farm and I have coloured her with Promarkers and used Shabby Green Door "Farmers Market" more new goodies to look forward to when I get back ! We were also able to take advantage and buy the special edition "Cheeky" stamps which were only available to retailers who attended CHA.

Back soon

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 !
