Well, it's been quite a week hasn't it!
Firstly; thank you so much for your lovely messages and Emails of good wishes for my debut show. Thank you also for watching it!
I'm used to people blaming me for always keeping them poor because they spend so much on crafting materials; now I'm having to get used to being blamed for bringing down Ideal World/Create & Craft websites and phone system! Ha ha!
As you may know because so many people were unable to get their orders through, I did the shows again the next day, same products but with Debbie instead of Leonie. That was a little surreal in itself, but then, at the end of the second show, poor Debbie's back seized up and with no one to cover for her, I went on to present the first 10 minutes of the 5pm show until Debbie was able to return! Talk about a baptism of fire!
It was fun though and everyone at Ideal World gave me such a lovely warm welcome that I already feel like part of the team and not so much the new girl any more!
It's been a busy week at Topaz too - personal callers into the shop have been greeted with new bargains every day as the massive clear out continues!
The charity "Goody-Bags" are still proving extremely popular and our thanks go to those who are helping to raise money for such a worthy cause.
On-line, we have extended both the FREE P&P for orders over £10 and the FREE gift on all orders over £15.
There are new items coming in over the next few days so keep your eyes open for new collections from Kanban and Craftwork Cards and we are pleased to report we are also increasing the range of the ever popular Card Candi available to buy in the on-line shop!
In the "Reduced Item" section we have added some more items including, to name just a few, Slice Design Cards (inc some MS+ ones), my DVDs are now all £5-00 and we have some Kanban foiled inserts on offer for £2-00 for a pack of 20.
Still proving extremely popular with our customers are the amazing Paint Fusion Stamps and the sets of paints to use with them, Sheena's lovely "A Little Bit Sketchy" Stamps, Kanban Toppers, Card Candi (we added a dozen new collections today and have more coming!) The Floral Jumbo Clings from Stampendous, Craft Concepts Embossing folders, Dreamweaver Stencils, Prima and Petaloo Flowers, Collall Photo Glue and last but not least, the set of 2 "Pokey Tools" we sell!
My next appearance on Create & Craft is on June 14th but I am not sure of the hours at the time of writing this. I will let you know in the next newsletter.
Until then - Thank you for your continued support for both myself personally and for Topaz Crafts.
