OMG Only 9 Days To GO!!!!

I have no idea where the time is going!!! I am in the middle of getting the sale sorted for the shop before we close for the hols, I can't wait :) Lots of last mins things being organised, including the most important school Chrimbo party LOL
All the presents are ordered so if they don't turn up on time then there isn't much I can do, I refuse to get stressed about it as it's just not worth it, the main thing will be that we are all together with no work or school worries :)

I really neeed to get the lighting sorted for my pics :( I'll have to have a major cleaning spree in the shop and get my tent a space sorted so my pics are brighter.
This was just a pic showing a tree made with my Martha S branch punch, it's not my own invention I saw it somewhere in blogland, but not sure where so I can give credit soz!
It looks so much better in real life & sparkles beautifully with it's little red Swarovski Crystals :)
I've got right into Mirri card at the mo, I haven't used it much before but wow what I've been missing it's great stuff, so I'll be stocking more colours in the shop from now on :)

Last pics of the bead order we got in, aren't they fab!!!

Hope you are more sorted for Christmas than I am LOL x

Copics & Christmas Cards :)

We have COPICS!!!! Our final Copic Ciao order arrived this morning, wooohoooo! This is the last order before the price hike in January where the RRP is £2.50, thats what us crafters get for making them soooo popular lol but they are still worth it ;)

I have had a last min order for 8 A5 cards, not a huge problem I hear you cry, but for me its MASSIVE as I don't do A5 cards lol It started with 5 but my customer was that chuffed she has ordered another 3!! I must admit they have caused me some stress and I copped out and put big ribbon on them all :) I'll share the others with you soon x

Lurvely Beads & Forever Friends :)

Another bead delivery dropped on the door mat, with some real luch vibrant colours to brighten up your jewellery :) We have another due this week hopefully with some more of the large fab black rounds that sold out, I made a necklace & earrings with mine but I'm thinking I don't like it much so it may be taken apart!!

We also had some cute Forever friends Elements arrive in the shop, well along with paper punches, sticky ribbons and lots more :)

Sunday, Sketch & Stamp

I am a tad late with my sketch this week soz! Things are manic with me at the mo as I am still trying to get back on top of things after my sickness.
I had a great time with this sketch, I did go a bit wrong with my sentiment, I took the paper off the sticky pad and dropped it & it landed where it is now LOL

Wrapped up All Gorjuss

I found this yummy K & Co paper in my stash this week and had to play :) seen as I've missed out on a whole heap of crafting I have been itching to get into my stuff!!!
I have decided to make more of an effort to use what I have, due to the fact I have a real bad habit of just taking what I fancie off the shelves, I know it sounds great but I can't move for all the stash only used once lol
The weather has been bitter this week & I was in the mood to do something cosy and this little lady fits the bill perfectly, as always I used my wonderful Copic pens to colour.
I am really into punches at the mo, the bigger the better seems to be the theme of the day, I am lovin the EK whale of a punch I took delivery of this fab swirl & the retro flower which the fab Tracy from Squiggle Stamps demoed a fab shabby Chic flower that can be made with it YUM I'll share pics soon x

I'm Back!!!!

I'm finally back on my feet & taken back the shop from Hubs, who done a grand job according to my customers who have been in to welcome me back :) it was great to hear from them how well he managed, it just goes to show that he does pay attention sometimes in my craft world LOL
I had a fair few card orders to get through & the Chrimbo deco's to be put up so no easing myself in slowly, it was great to be back especially when the deliveries start arriving this week :)

The lovely Jenny made a lush easel card and I thought I'd try it out again for this customer order, I used the MEGGA lush Bo Bunny 'Love Bandit' papers they are truly fabbi & available for sale in the shop in 6x6 pks. I'm looking forward to having a try at the accordion cards Jenny made too as it was very clever & very effective, she's such a clever girl!!

Christmas has arrived in the store :) I have a little MOO card tree all decked out LOL it looks better in the flesh honest!!!

If you can get yourself to the shop for your last min Christmas crafts from Do Crafts as we have low stocks left with a 15% discount!!!
