Well another day nearly over....

Hope you have all had a good day. Sam and I have been getting to grips with the paperwork side of things and desparately trying to clear areas ready for the new products due in next month, but like most thing's, you start 1 job and find 2 other's that need done and so on and so forth........

Anyway we're getting there. I appologise if we are a bit slow at updating things but I'm still a 2 fingered typist and Sam just get's on with the shop thing's single handed mostly. It was nice to see a few old faces today after their Christmas breaks and we're looking forward to all our friend's who holiday in the area and visit now that Spring is nearly here................well it is, isnt it?

There are a few new workshop's on the site here, but were keeping it quiet for now as we're not sure what's happening with Bev, and yes - there's no news..

How nice is it though to come out of work and it's only just getting dark, so I hope your all getting on with your Valentine's and Easter cards and those of you who do Scrapbooking, have you finished your Christmas layout's? If not we still have a few of the DCWV Christmas paper packs left in the sale so it might be worth popping over here to have a lookie.

Righty ho I'm off, hopefully catch you all again soon, byee

Nothing Yet Folk's......................

Just thought I'd pop in as it's a while since we chatted. Firstly though, there is still nothing to report on Bev. She is definately ready to burst but no sign's yet. In fact when she went to the midwife this week and was told..." ok then, see you next week..." her heart sank a wee bit. She look's really well, even though she's exhausted, but has finally gone on leave.
Not that she will even be totally free of us as I'm bound to need assistance with the web site. So appologies now if sometimes I do make a hash of it but I promise to do my very best to keep it up oto date and current.
The trade shows are just around the corner so we will soon be bringing you both new products and techniques, also you may have noticed the the workshops list is missing from the web site. This is only until we get organised with the new rota and staffing levels but keep your eye on it as it WILL be returning shortly. Sam is working hard with new samples and ideas for workshops ans will be heading the Scrapbook Crops that take place on the first Sunday of the month. She has intimated a notion for evening workshops so if this is something you'd be interested in please e-mail us at and well be in touch.
Lastly, we are now in the last week of our Mammoth January Sale and are doing FREE P+P for this week so why not go along and grab yourself a bargain.
So all that is left for me to say is bye for now and happy crafting ..........................

Ticking Time Bomb!!

Yep thats me, I am now two weeks away from my official due date, however today is the first date I was given so every time I trwinge or move everyone around me panics. It's quite good fun actually Mwa ha ha ha ha ha. Right down to business, I am still drowning under the post festive paperwork that is seriously mounting up over my desk, but am still doing all I can to add new bargains to the January Sale, please note that these are only while stocks last so if you want something you are ebst getting it asap, and there is a new pick up in store optioin at the checkouot so if you know you want something buy it over the web and we can puit it aside for you. I am still adding products to the web that re in the shop but haven't made it to cyberspace yet, please bear with me I am a human bowling ball at the minute but I am going as fast as I can, and I've set up a scanner at home so as soon as I do pop I can still keep going from home, as the said on Record Breakers "Dedication's what you need", (I loved that show) I'm also going to try and get more samples on too, with a bit of luck and a little less judgemtn I'm hoping to get more crafting done at home this year so will post pictures of what I do, this is a layout of Dave that I did last week, it's the Paper Mania Papers, Scrapbook Sally Blossoms and the buttons from the big woodware bags. Right I'm off to do some more web additions, if anyone has any queries or questions you can e-mail phone or leave a comment on here and we'll get back to you asap.

See you soon

Good Morning

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you all, I hope you all had a good weekend. Well Christmas has been put away for another year and we are all eager to get going with the new one. Sam is currently working on the new window displays however she is keeping a bit tight lipped about the whole thing so I will post photos when she's done so you know what she has come up with.

Can you believe the Easter Eggs are on the shelves already, well yes as crafters we know how far in advance we have to work, i.e. we know some of you will start work on your crimbly cards soon. However for those of us who are a little less forward the Valentines,Easter, & Mothers Day goodies are starting to arrive which is great, lots of gorgeous bright colours, and flowers designs. We've had an enormous range of pop out decoupage in for those who like it, it's just taking me a while to get on the web. For those who are a little sceptical about pop out decoupage I completely understand where you are coming form as that is exactly how we used to feel about the stuff, but I have to say these are very cleanly cut which means a fantastic effect without all the trimming. We still love traditional decoupage though and I'll be trying to get more of that on.

Okay today I am 37 weeks, which makes me officially full term and therefore the possibility of me popping any day now is increasing by the hour (aaaarrrrgggghhhh), so I will keep trying to get as much on the site as possible while I'm here, however everyone here will be able to help with queries so don't hesitate to phone or e-mail.

Right I'd best stop talking about the new products and go and actually get them on the site. But to show you an example of the pop out decoupage here's a motorbike one mum did recently, so simple but excellent all the same.

See you later

Well here we go again . . . . .

Here we go another year has begun, and of course we all hope it will be a good one. Well I'm pretty confident mine is going to be great, as for those of you who don't know I'm over 8 months pregnant (look like a tank) so I get a brilliant pressie coming my way plus my first mothers day WICKED!. We've got some fab stuff coming up in the shop this year too, more workshops, possibly some in evenings too so if you have any interest in these please w-mail us with your details, and I can send you some info back. We are expecting some brilliant new card making techniques, and goodies this year, which we've already started planning and practising, and we have a MASSIVE CLEARANCE on at them moment, we are doing a complete out with the old to make room for all the fabby new products coming our way, there is a lot on the website, but there is quite a lot in the shop on a permanent clearance section too so if you can pop in for a browse.

So did you all got what you wanted for Christmas, we were all very good this year and decided we would only buy presents that were wanted or we knew the person would like as you know what it's like the day after Christmas and you have a bin bag of stuff you know will never see the light of day ever again, so we were really well behaved and I didn't even gorge myself on chocolate (there's not much room left in here to be fair:) )

Would you like to see my Christmas pressie from Dave

Isn't it gorgeous, he proposed on Christmas day under this big bunch of mistletoe he'd hung up in the living room, and I of course said I would (by the way that was after I said that if he was joking I'd kill him), so it's all going on at the moment.

So here we go again 2008 has begun and I really hope it's a good one for us all, so good luck and we hope to see you throughout the year :)
