It's Busy at Daisy's

In the coming weeks there are some exciting classes planned for Daisy's.

A few weeks ago, Barbi went and did a class by another talented Australian Scrapbooker, Jane Tregenza, and Barbi will be teaching the off the page project this coming Saturday. The book is complete and available for your viewing, it's beautiful, with dark neutral colours using the new Graphic 45 'Curtain Call' papers. This class will be held this coming Saturday on the 9th April.
This class commences at 10am and concludes at 3pm. The cost is $60 which includes all materials, tuition and a light lunch. Contact us as bookings are essential for this class.

We are thrilled to announce that Annette Hopkinson from Blossies, is coming to our store to teach a series of cards. She has a gorgeous style which combines a shabby chic, and vintage look using many of our favourite products. If you'd like to peruse her blog you can visit her here.
Annette is teaching her class at Daisy's on April 16. She will be teaching you how to make 3 lovely masculine cards, featuring Darkroom Door Stamps. Her cards include a variety of different techniques too. Most of us find masculine cards among the most difficult to make, so this is a perfect opportunity to learn some new skills or brush up some older skills to make some beautiful cards for the men in your circle of family and friends.

A sneak peak.
This class costs $20 and includes all materials. The class is held from 10am till 12.30pm on Saturday 16 April. Please contact Daisy's for a booking as these are essential. Her class is already filling quickly.

Another great weekend

Hopefully by now all our retreat attendees will have caught up on their much needed sleep. I always find it interesting to look around and there's definitely two distinct groups. The ladies who go to bed early and are the first to return in the morning, and the group who don't want to leave.......I fall into the latter group. Thankfully I've caught up on my sleep and am also still enjoying the post retreat feeling of a time well spent. It's a great time to catch up with your dear friends and to make new ones. As Barbi mentioned during the retreat, there's nothing better than listening to the steady hum of women's voices as they talk together. The retreat is a great time of catching up on your projects but it's so much much more. The store, becomes a haven, a sanctuary for the weekend. A short time where the normal cares of everyday are given a back seat. It's a time where you can recharge your ideas and thoughts as you share with other women, learning from like minded souls and also receiving a listening ear and wisdom from those around you. It was lovely to hear all the positive feedback after the event. Thanks ladies for making it a fun weekend.

To avoid disappointment, please make sure that your name is down for future retreats, even those beyond 2011. I know many of you have checked your bookings for the remainder of this year, but please ensure that your name is on the list for others you wish to attend. We do ask that you pay a deposit of $25 when you place your name on the list when it gets closer to the date. As we've mentioned before, deposits not paid when required, will mean you forfeit your place. As we don't want to disappoint anyone, please make sure your name is on the retreats you wish to attend, as they fill up very quickly.

It's hard to think that February is all but done and dusted. One sixth of the year has already passed us by. What memories have you created thus far?

On Thursday of this week we have Barbi's usual class at 9.30am. On Friday this week, the cardmakers gather for their Friendship group at 9.30am. After lunch at 1pm, Barbi will have her Heritage class. The cardmakers are meeting for their monthly Friendship Group on Saturday and commence at 10am.

Metallic Stickers are on special this week, you need to buy 5 for the great price of $9. You don't need to remember your voucher anymore.

This Week @ Daisy's

A gorgeous layout designed by Lisa Webb

First of all, we hope that everyone has received their emailed newsletters, as they went out last Monday. We've had issues where the newsletter subscription hasn't been verified by our customers or a transcription error has meant that newsletters have bounced back to us. If you didn't receive your newsletter, would you please head to our subscription page and sign up again. Then please ensure the confirmation email is verified, (remember

to check your spam box too, as your server may automatically place the email there). Signing up yourself will also eliminate transcription errors. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. We still have 'paper' newsletters available in store and you're welcome to come in and collect yours. If you live a distance away, we will still be posting yours out to you. Our newsletter will now also be monthly, so this will keep you better in touch with what's happening in our store.

All classes are back to normal, as the school term is well and truly under way. Like last year, all our layouts and card classes, are available for you to purchase in kit form. Please ring (07 54416797) or email the store before the class, so a kit can be prepared for you. These will then be held behind the counter for you to come in and collect. If you are unable to come in to our classes, these kits are a great way to create lovely projects, while the hard work has been taken out of the equation for you.

Lots of new goodies for the New Year

Basic Grey 'Curio'
Basic Grey "Marjolane"

Simple Stories 'Ele.ment.ary'

Simple Stories 'Life Documented'

Basic Grey "Hopscotch"

Lots of new stock has arrived, with the advent of warehouses returning for business after the holiday break. Please come into our store and check out the new products.

Among them we have - The new Echo Park papers "Be Mine", and also "Little Boy". "Little Girl" is coming very soon. We also have October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" and "Schoolhouse". With the kids returning to school this will be a popular range. October Afternoon, "Campfire" is on its way. The new Basic Grey "Hopscotch" has arrived, along with TPC Studio "Little Loving". We also have the Basic Grey kits of "Marjolane" and Curio" available.

The new Fancy Pants papers "Love Birds" are beautiful. There are lots of gorgeous papers in store now for you to create your Valentines cards and projects. If you're interested in kits we have a new range of Simple Stories Kits in "" and 'Life Documented", which are a great way to put together a set of themed layouts.

One of the main changes which we will put into place this year, is in the way we present our stock on the online store. In conjunction with the responses we've received from the survey and with the logistics of having an online store which reflects the real 'bricks and mortar' version of Daisy's, all our stock will be available for sale online, but won't be presented in the 'normal' online way. You will see the changes in the coming months as we will present ranges of goods which we stock and if you are unable to come into the store, you will be able to make your 'shopping list' and email or phone your order through. Individual items will still be available on our online store but we will be focussing more on kits and also consumables. Thank you to those who have responded to our survey.

The new kits are available online as I type. If you'd like to check them out, you'll find them here.

Apologies for image placement on this post, Blogger has its own ideas about where I should put them ~ Daisy.
