Well the dark nights are certainly upon us aren't they? It's a lovely time to wrap up warm and indulge in some good crafting evenings in front of the fire! Or, if you do fancy a trip out, then how about coming along to our Christmas Party at my shop?
It's on Thursday 10th November and we are planning to have a fun night of crafting as well as fund raising in aid of the East Lancashire Hospice.
The party starts at 6pm and finishes at 9pm.
We will be serving mulled wine with mince pies whilst running "make and takes" and having lots of demonstrations.
Please call 01254 356501 to book your place and every one who books in advance will go into a free prize draw to win a selection of Dawn Bibby products.
Do come along and support this worthwhile cause and I am delighted to say that on this occasion I am linking up with Caitlin Jones. Some of you may already know of this extraordinary 15 years old lady and Caitlin will also be running a "make 'n' take" on the night to help raise funds.
There is no fee to come but any donations on the night will be welcomed and please remember to call us and book your place.
I will be at the NEC Birmingham this week - Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so hope to see many of you there. It's my second time at a major craft event with Create & Craft and I am looking forward to it!
I will be back in studio Monday and Tuesday if you can't make the show! My show times next week are:-
Monday 7th November - 3pm (Create & Craft) 5pm - 7pm (Ideal World)
Tuesday 8th November - 2pm - 4pm, 5pm and 7pm (All on Create & Craft)
It certainly has been busy lately here at my shop with loads of new deliveries arriving daily. We are, of course, trying to get lots of new goodies online as fast as we can, so do keep your eye on the website for them.
So far the new items on-line including the brand new cling stamps from Stampendous - I'm loving the new Cameo Frame and Romantic Border myself, in fact I may just be using those at the party night!
We also have new additions to the Woodware acrylic stamps including Camelia and Clematis. If your still looking for Christmas items, the Poinsettia is beautiful and the Christmas House is perfect.
In the Artemio stamp section make sure you take a look at the Bird Flourish and Floral Elements - both are lovely!
Oh and we have the Castaway (bleaching) Ink Pad in stock. The Glue Palette is also available again and is ideal if you fancy gilding your stamped images. We also have the Texture Sponges back in stock and you will find them in the new section on the website for all items to do with Gilding.
Also just arrived are the brand new Tim Holtz "Seasonal Ink Pads." They are a special pack of 3 Limited Edition Ink Pads and come in a choice of Winter or Fall but be quick as stocks may not last very long!
Have you tried the new Inverse Corner Punch? It's a current favourite of mine - just pop a jewel into the cut-out for a fab accent!
We have the regular corner rounder too if you prefer that look to your cards and ATCs.
Also new in stock are the Darice Embossing Folders. There are so many fabulous designs which work with all the major machines. Embossing Folders are proving to be really popular, and we are pleased to be able to increase the range we offer you.
As I've said, we've new stock coming in almost daily at the moment which makes it impossible to get everything on line as fast as we would like, so please call the shop on 01254 356501 if you can't find what you are looking for on the website as we probably have it in stock or can sometimes order it for you.
Keep warm, keep crafting and I look forwards to meeting some of you at the NEC.
