Daisy's is gearing up for Christmas

Every time I walk into the store, I get a feeling of contentment from the steady hum of friendship and creativity. The buzz is always there, but stronger at the moment as Christmas approaches. It's a mixture of stress and anticipation of the busy times ahead of us. It's lovely though to see the ladies relax and take time out for themselves, before they go back home. Home to create more precious memories for their families and friends. That's what's so special about Daisy's it cultivates a sense of well being and contentment.

All this week the classes are asking everyone to bring with them a plate to share for morning tea. The end of the year, busy as it is, has opportunities for sitting together and sharing lovely food and companionship.

The children are already on holidays, hopefully this isn't adding to the stress levels, but I know I'm being a bit optimistic there. I always find the kids' behaviour pretty full on, as they're tired after a year at school and excited about the upcoming festivities. A combination which can be a strain on our patience levels. If you're among this group, then you may find some respite with our Kids and Mums Cardmaking class which takes place on Thursday at 1pm. The cost is $22 and a family consists of one adult and two children. The same format will take place next Thursday afternoon and the one after that too. I'll post a reminder so you can put it into your diary. Please ring to book your place.

This Friday morning is a Card Friendship class, with Barbi's heritage class in the afternoon beginning at 1pm. Friday night is our regular Scrapping after Dark. On Saturday Barbi will hold her Basic Grey Layout of the Month in the morning starting at 10am. The cost is $35 and is inclusive of all the products used. Also in the morning the Cardmakers' Group meets for their monthly get together.

Please note that next Monday's cardmaking classes are combined, so the 7.00 and the 7.30pm class are combined at 7pm-9pm.

If you've found that the rain has cancelled all your Carols by Candlelight plans, then Daisy's will hold their annual event on Friday 24th December, starting at 7pm. I've heard that the Daisy Divas are planning on making an appearance too.

Please remember that patterned papers are 15% off until the 20th December. If you're planning on completing projects for Christmas gifts or are late getting your cards done, this sale will help you with your planning and budgetting.
