Buried Alive…

Hello, hello lovely blog readers! long time no see… thank you to all of you who have emailed/texted to see if I’m ok, and in fact still alive.  I finished work two weeks ago, and instead of having lots of time on my hands, I'm wondering when on earth i ever found time to go to work! I’ve started the mammoth task of ‘spring cleaning’ the house – which has included a massive sort out of all of the cupboards, cleaning the oven, defrosting the freezer and cleaning out all of the kitchen cupboards and appliances. Next on my list to tackle is my craft room, which at this moment in time resembles a complete hovel…..


my usually very tidy and organised room has turned into a complete bombsite, thanks to a number of back to back events, my week away in Canada and then my efforts being focussed elsewhere!DSCF2884

I’ve just finished prepping my all-day Christmas Club class for tomorrow, so my plan is to try and tidy up this disaster zone this afternoon, then take some photos of the completed projects which are amongst it, and get back on top of my blog updates Smile has anyone got a rope the can lend me to tie around my waist before i venture in there??

I’ll try and get back later to share some sneak peeks of Christmas Club tomorrow, if you don't see me back here by 7pm, please send the search party around!

I’m not dead, just absent

Hey folks! thought I'd better pop along and explain the reason for my silence, despite all of the yummy new products! I’m in Canada this week for work, and in the rush of preparing for my new catalogue launch last week, and packing, I completely forgot to take any pictures to upload this week. So never fear, I’ll return next Monday (once I know what day of the week I’m on!) with some piccies of projects using the fabulous new products in the new IBC. in the meantime, I must go and get some breakfast and then get to work!

See you soon

Morning all! As you might have sensed from the title, I'm a little excited about our new arrival - the all NEW idea book and catalogue from Stampin' Up! packed full of new stamp sets, papers and accessories (sigh!). You can see it online here.

If you have yet to get your hands on a paper copy, then please feel free to email me and I can arrange to post one to you. Alternatively you can use the order buttons in the sidebar.

My launch event for the new book is this Saturday, 8th October from 10am-12pm and costs £3.50, which will include a copy of the new catalogue, 2 make and takes, a free prize draw, treasure hunt and light refreshments. There will of course also be the opportunity to see some of the new merchandise in the flesh.

I'm also offering a number of product shares to enable you to get your mitts on the fabulous new papers and ribbons, without the cost of purchasing them all.

Please note that the closing date for bookings for the second instalment of my Christmas Club is on Friday 21st October. Please email or phone me (07764815797) to reserve your space for any of the events.
