We're back !!

........and raring to go !!! Well, maybe not "raring" - still a little jet-lagged and waking up at 3am for a walkabout lol !!
We left San Francisco around 9pm US time around an hour late and just had time to connect at Heathrow for the Manchester flight at around 4pm UK time, had a shock at Manchester checking in for the Island when they tried to charge us £112 excess baggage !!!! for just 8 kg !!!! thankfully the check-in agent was helpful and suggested we take as much out as possible to carry on as handbaggage, so the great unpacking started at the desk, holding up the queue lol. I am amazed that we got through security each carrying a laptop bag, a tote full of catalogues and books each and the camera bag !!!!! I though it was supposed to be one piece each, luckily the sun was shining on us and we arrived back to the freezing Isle of Man unscathed lol !!
So, the excitement of the trip is over for another year, and now the excitement of waiting for all the lovely goodies to arrive begins !

We still have lots of sneak peak of the goodies we have ordered to show you and I haven't forgotten about the Blog Candies...... will get the Random Generator out in a few days time for them all at once - we have another one tonight and you know the drill by now lol.
We are thrilled to bring Graphic 45 to the Craft Emporium, I have drooled over these collections for quite a while now, so it was time to add it to our stock-list. We are starting out with the three new collections "On The Boardwalk" "Le' Romantique" and "A Proper Gentleman" .... loads of gorgeous 12 x 12 papers and Paper Pads. I hope you like them as much as I do. They had a fab stand at CHA but the piccies have come out a little dark, think I had the camera on the wrong setting lol !
The kind folks on the stand have given us an 8 x 8 Paper Pad for our Blog Candy today - cool !

There has been a massive response to our Winter Sale, orders will start processing tomorrow in the order that they came in, so please bear with us whilst we catch up with the backlog.

Look out for more sneak peaks soon !
Bye for now
