Phew...what a day!!!

Well, it has been quite a day. I was manning shop on my own today and I think every delivery man in the land paid me a visit, so I have spent the day unpacking boxes and oooooooo some of those boxes contained some real treasures!! Stuff I had been waiting for!!!!! Stuff I can't live without!!!! And actually, I suspect stuff you can't live without too!!!! Shall I tell you what I got........okay, you twisted my arm.

First up, all our Tim's new stuff, his masks, new shape Grungeboard, the new fragments and washers etc.......just scrummy!
Next, the remaining sets of Studio 490, these are Wendy Vecchi's stamps by Stampers Anonymous. When the first delivery came in we were short of "Dreams of art" and "Art rules" but now we have them all. When I first saw these I just knew they would be great for all my metal stuff, so I just need a few minutes now to play.....well that's not going to happen anytime soon, it's my oldest daughter Kelly's 30th birthday this weekend so we are partying tomorrow night and my parents are staying with me until Monday. I cannot believe she is going to be 30, how the heck did that happen. She was born...I blinked....she's 30!!!
Actually, that's all I managed to unpack, I have had to leave the rest for Karen to do tomorrow, good thing she loves her job!!!

Sorry, it may be a while before these items appear on the website, I need Mark to do this for me, you know I'm rubbish with a computer and poor man, he's been working away in London this week and I have a VAT return that needs urgent attention. So if you are interested in any of the new goodies, just call the shop, Karen will be happy to help.
Finally, I just wanted to share with you a picture of my Christmas version of the Gothic Arch. This is the class that Leandra and I are teaching on 23rd November and because some of the ladies booked on the class have already done it once, it was suggested that a Christmas version would be a good idea. Leandra and I thought it was also a very good idea so thanks Sue, we love suggestions!!! So, if you would like to make one of these beauties, there are still some places left, it will be a great day.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

Heidi, why would I would be great to see you. If you can let me know when you are coming, I'll try and be here!!!!
Glad you like the Christmas arch. It's very different for me, it was quite hard not to slather it in paint!!!! But now that's it's finished and all silvery and frosty looking, I really quite like it.

Love this arch and the sample on the website. Would love to take the class as it looks wonderful, but would be a long way to go as I lived in Canada.
