Newsletter and Class Dates

Hello Crafters!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
I certainly did- although after such a long break I'm looking forward to getting back into crafting again.
With all the doom and gloom on the television and the grey weather, now is the perfect time to be getting out your craft stuff. Not only can crafting take your mind off everything for a while, but you can also spread a little happiness by giving a
hand made gift or personal card to somebody else.
With this in mind we have a full programme of classes available for card making, scrapbooking and jewellery making. If you are simply in need of a little inspiration, want ideas on how to use up the products you already have or just enjoy the social aspect of a class then please join us. We start taking bookings on:

Saturday 31st January at 9.30 am

We have had lots of lovely new products delivered already this month including a huge selection of K & Co embellishments and paper from K & Co and Basic Grey, Paper Frills, patterned ribbons and fancy brads from Design Objectives (all of which are featured in the latest Do Craft Magazine- which we have in stock too). We have also stocked up some of our old Favourites as well!!!

There are lots of other goodies on order including; beads, cosmic shimmer
embossing powders and I'm really excited about Tilda and Edwin Stamps from Magnolia. These Stamps have been growing in popularity in crafting circles but have proved almost impossible to get hold of in Northern Ireland and so I am absolutely delighted to have placed my first order!

If this wasn't exciting enough- each month we will be having an in-store
promotion called Second Saturday Special!
On the second Saturday of each month we will have a product or range of
products on special offer- the only catch is you have to come in-store to find
out what it is!

Our First Second Saturday Special will be on February 14th 2009.

Last but not least, Mummy While will be here very soon!
So many of you have admired the watercolour cards that she made using the Scene-it watercolour stamps from Hobby Art, that we decided to do a class (details below). And of course I'm very excited to have mummy to stay! I think that is everything for now. I hope to see you all soon.

Until then Happy Crafting.
