It's been another fast paced week at this end - Just two days at home and then back again to Peterborough; but then isn't it always a case of having to play catch-up for a while before you get back into a regular routine after a few days away.
You may remember me mentioning that I have been nominated for a couple of awards in this years Crafts Beautiful Awards. Thank you again to all those who nominated me, it really was most kind of you.Well, apparently they have now opened the actual voting and you will be entered into a draw to win a lot of craft goodies when you vote. So if you would like to be in with a chance of adding to your crafting stash, here's the link to vote:- http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/craftawards2011
In addition to the Sunday 25th September list of hours in my last newsletter, I will be on your screens at 11am tomorrow (Sunday) morning. A full list of my appearances are at the end of this newsletter.Also, as a little "heads-up"; the shows on Tuesday will be a Christmas crafting theme so I hope you can tune in and I will try and fit in as many tips and hints as I can.
Meanwhile, in the Topaz shop we have lots of items back in stock, including some Dawn Bibby products. My Woodland Collection for instance is now fully available including the popular owl designs ( the stamps are also available) However the availability of stock is limited so do please be quick to avoid disappointment! We will also try and get more of these back on line as soon as we can.
Some of my favourites of our new items include some very affordable Christmas message sheets from Anita's , decoupage, acrylic stamps and embossing folders. "Jingle Bells" and "Pom Poms" embellishments too. The mini tree lights and boxes of mini bells have been really popular and for adding snow to your projects the Stellar Flash gilding flakes is the perfect thing and we now have this item available in tubs for just £2.50 each.We also have the gorgeous new Christmas stamps from Sheena Douglass and Stampendous while in store we also have cute Christmas single stamps for an amazing price of £1.25 each!
Embossing folders and gilding flakes have proved to be the best selling items this week - along with the texture sponges which are a must have for that professional finish.Please remember that if you do not see what you are looking for on the website, please call the shop as we probably have it available but haven't put it on line yet!
We are more than happy to take your order over the telephone or offer you advice. The number to call is:- 01254 356501

Thank you all for visiting and proving we are very much open for business despite rumours having been spread around we are closed! Thank you for helping to get the word out that Topaz is still very much open for business!
