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!
