Sorry for the silence. It's been a really hectic couple of weeks for me and I have started to write this Email several times; only for something to crop up and demand my attention and, by the time I've sat down again the phone has rung! Do you get times when you seem to be running like crazy but don't seem to be getting anywhere? Frustrating isn't it? Oh well, life's rich tapestry huh?! Anyway, I'll make up for it by making this a long letter! Ha ha!
Life at Create and Craft is great fun and I'm really enjoying myself! It is such a refreshing change to be able to finish demos and show different techniques to you. From all the nice posts on Facebook, "Tweets" on Twitter and Emails to the shop; I sense that you are sharing my feelings! I'm really glad that you are enjoying the shows and thank you so much for joining me on this new adventure! I'm still learning as I go, but I'll get there in the end! Ha ha!
Before I tell you about all the great things that we have in the shop and on-line for you, I really want to just clear one thing up. Although the actual building is up for sale we are still trading as normal.
We have been really busy with personal callers into the shop, and I'm sorry I can't be there to meet you personally, but my loyal and talented staff are always on hand to advise and make recommendations for you. We have some new In-Store Offers including Buy 1 Get 1 Free, 3 for 2's, some specially hand selected packs; including packs of flowers at special prices. We have an amazing deal on peel offs and a special price on my DVD's of 3 for £12-50 or £5-00 each. We are also introducing a Weekly Special Offer which will run from Saturday to Friday or while stocks last. This week it is a set of my Acrylic Stamps and next week.... ooooh! Who knows what it will be! You'll just have to come along and see! Ha ha!
On-line, we have continued the free P&P and goody Bag for orders over £15. As promised the new Kanban Collections are up on the website and already you are loving them and they are selling as fast as we can put them up! We also have some really great card stock from Kanban for all you stampers out there! A4 in size and available in 3 colour choices, White, Cream and Black they come in packs of 10. Being plain and 230 GSM it's perfect for all stamping and colouring techniques. We also have some special offers for on-line customers. There are special hand selected packs for you at very special prices including Sukura Pens, Adhesives, papers etc. These types of packs will be added to the website periodically so make sure you keep an eye out for them! There's now a special section for them on the Website. Due to the recent popularity of the "Lucky Dips" we did on the Christmas Papers, we have decided to do more of them for you. The first to be added is a special Halloween one with a RRP of £10 and on offer for just £5-00. Again, we know that you love these packs and plan to do more of them for you but you have to keep an eye on the website for them!
Right, off to prep for tomorrow's shows. I'm on Create & Craft in my usual 2-4pm slot, 5pm and again at 7pm. I do hope that you can join me as I really do have some beautiful things to show you. Would you like a sneaky preview?..... okay but ssssh! Keep it to your self okay? Ha ha! Just a few items to look out for...I have some new stamps from Stampavie, and some amazing paper collections from Bo Bunny and TPC Studio. Oh and some decoupage and embellishments that I've decided I need! In fact, I need it all! Ha ha!
I do hope that you can join me, and again on Wednesday as I have shows on both Create and Craft as well as Ideal World. I'll be on Ideal World at 1pm-2pm and then on Create & Craft 4pm-5pm and 7pm-8pm.
It's been quite a long week this one, it's been 5 days this time as I started on Saturday instead of on the Sunday. I'm not too sure of my hours for next week yet but they will be posted onto my Website, Blog, Facebook and Twitter as soon as I know them.
Till next time, hope you have a great week!
