There are so many beautiful products with this issue - some amazing floral stamps, border punches, edge punches, a few albums, sme gorgeous wedding papers, a great range of boy stamps and lots more. Come in soon before it all disappears!

And finally - Jane will find out over the weekend if she has made the Graphic 45 Design Team - so cross your fingers and cross your toes.......

My Books

I love making books. This is one I made for my Dad. I still have to get the photos in, but its done. I love teaching books and I have another class on Wednesday this week coming. It is for a new book - a wedding one, no surprises. In case I haven't mentioned it to you. We had our first wedding in the family back in January, so I have lots of photo's. We make the whole book in one day. Starting at 10am and finishing about 4pm -5pm. Its $25 for the class and $45 for the kit. I love making pockets and flaps in my books and lots of tags and stamps. I will be using a range of paper from K&Company. We still have room for a few more if you would like to do it. I will teach it again in the next quarter on a Saturday.
Thanks for looking.
BTW - I am starting to work on the new time table and newsletter over the week-end. Lots of you have been asking for it, so no rest for the wicked!

Been tidying up the Shop

Had some spare time last week and I moved the shop around. Not too much, so you can't find anything, but enough to satisfly me. This is what happens every time a do a major creative piece. This time it was 10 pieces for Graphic 45's design team call. We sent the photos monday. After I send my work off, I always feel lost. Its like you have sent a child or someone you love away for a while. I find it hard to settle and so with the creative juices still flowing I feel the need to change things around and so the shop gets the full works. Athough with a bad back I am limited to what I can do. This means I now have a table full of clearance items marked down and quite a few racks of paper (not the racks!) needing to find new homes. Drop in and see us next week. Remember we are closed on Monday. I found out on Saturday that I made the top 20 for Graphic 45 and on monday will be making my final piece to send to them, which I don't get back! This will be my piece for the final round. Out of 20 very talented ladies they are looking for 7. A one in 3 chance does'nt sound to bad. I would love the chance to do some design work for them as their paper is perfect for my style of scrapbooking. Wish me luck!
thanks for looking
