Thank You lots and lots and lots!

I have to start today's post with a massive thank you to everyone who to took the time and trouble to leave a lovely, lovely comment on my blog and on Facebook as well as those who privately emailed me and telephoned me. I have been truly touched by your very generous comments....a bit overwhelmed at times but seriously, it's moments like that that make all the hard work really worthwhile. I'm sort of getting over the shock now which is just as well as I need to focus and prepare for the show at Stevenage this coming Sunday.

We have had some fabulous new products arrived from Australia. I had a lovely chat with Julie Van Oosten who has put together and amazing range of chipboard kits, papers and transparencies called Collection Elements. We have put one one her kits on the website as a taster of what is to come, I am kicking myself now for not placing a bigger order as it is all just scrummy, but we will be taking everything to the show for you guys to see. I had a little play last night and made this canvas using some of her elements along with some metal too of course.

Here's a couple of close ups.


Today is the day when the new Kabukas are due to arrive......we've been counting down the days. If you have pre-ordered, we will do our best to get your order in the mail today but it does depend what time the delivery guy arrives.
And last but not least, I'm the birthday girl today. My family arranged a bit of a tea party last Sunday for me so that I could share a cake with my favourite little people, Ronnie and Millie. As you can see, princess Mills really enjoyed the chocolate cake that Kelly had made for me!!!


OK, I'm off to pack some boxes.
