New from Basic Grey

There are so many new products arriving each week - My Minds Eye, Graphic 45 and Little Yellow Bicycle - just to name a few.  The girls at Daisy's have been creating with the new ranges as they've been coming in and there are some lovely cards and layouts on display as well as a lot of new kits for sale in the workshop area. 
On Thursday we received our new shipment of Basic Grey - Konnichiwa and Plummeria.  Both ranges are characteristic of Basic Grey - lovely colours and a distressed finish to most of the patterns.  I think the Plummeria range will lend itself really well to masculine layouts and the Konnichiwa range will be great for cardmakers and scrappers alike. If you'd like to see more click on this link and you'll see the full range of Konnichiwa, (then phone us if you'd like any of this or the other range to be put away for you!)
We'll also be running some classes at Daisys using these collections featuring beautiful designs by Kelly Goree - this is one of them (inspired by Page Maps' Becky Fleck) - just gorgeous!  Be inspired and enjoy your weekend.

Creativity all around me...

I'm blessed to be surrounded by so many creative people - the lovely customers who attend classes or just come in to shop and say hi, and my wonderful staff who never cease to amaze me with their ideas and projects...just beautiful.
Sue has just created a series of gorgeous cards using the Kaisercraft 'Bon jour' range of papers and embellishments which, if you haven't scene this range, is a stunning combination of florals, butterflies and french icons in mint, peony pink and chocolate. She and Norma will be teaching this class on Saturday January 21 - the class will include lots of techniques (including sewing and sequins) and you'll complete 8 cards, for a very reasonable $35. If you can't make it you can order the kit - and create the cards at your leisure. If you'd like to come to the class on Saturday just email me - to reserve your spot.

New Products for Papercrafters

It's exciting to think CHA is on again - which means new products and ideas for us to enjoy and be inspired by! I'm not sure how they manage to keep coming up with new ideas - or why our scrapping desires never seem to be satisfied!! However I enjoy all the sneak peaks and creations made using the releases from our favourite suppliers...Stay tuned to our blog and facebook pages as we bring you updates of what's in store.

Happy Belated New Year

We're almost half way through January - I trust by now you've pulled down the Christmas decorations and started your 2012 diary! Mine doesn't have many entries in as yet - I think I'm just not ready to acknowledge we're well and truly into a New Year...
As we start to plan the year ahead - it's good to also reflect on the year that was - the achievements, disappointments, friendships and memories we've created and learned from - they are afterall what help make us who we are.
I trust you have had a lovely Christmas and New Year and wish you all the very best as you head into 2012 with goals and dreams ahead of you. Each day is a new day, each moment is special - enjoy!
