Busy Busy Fortnight

Standard

Good Evening
Sorry we have not been about for a few days, its been all go here at http://www.craftrange.com. We have been busy in the shop, planning to create space for all the new products we have coming in-store. Last week Deb, Gillian and I visited Stitches – UK’s equivalent to CHA, it’s the largest trade craft show in the UK where we get to visit all the major exhibitors stands to see the new products that are coming onto the craft market this year.

It was a great show with plenty to see and we have lots of new products that will be coming in-store over the next few months. Gillian is going to be blogging soon about the visit there and I will also have some posts and plenty of photos for you all to see.

On Friday and Saturday just gone I went on a Dreamweaver stencil teaching course at Woodware, totally amazing, fantastic and brilliant. I loved every single minute of it and learned so much – lets just hope I pass !! It was so informative and I have come away totally inspired, Lynell Harlow owner and designer of Dreamweaver stencils taught the class and she is truly an inspiration. Woodware hosted the class and I was well and truly looked after, Dorothy and Judith were as alway great hosts and fed us all very well so much so I think I rolled out of the building by the end of the second day! I have worked with Dreamweaver Stencils on and off for about 8 years now and will certainly be doing some samples for you all to see on the blog and in-store.

I am going to leave you with some amazing cakes, cupcakes and pop cakes that we saw at the show. I am sure that you will agree they are outstanding.


Untill next time

Demonstration Dilemma Resolved?

Standard

Good morning crafters,
Yes, we had an eventful day in the shop yesterday with Janet “helping” to get the shop floor organised. Despite her efforts we have completed the major moves and it is just a case of titivating, which we can hopefully do today, bearing in mind it is Topsy Turvey Thursday and I know that there is at least one delivery to get out. So, that’s the first hour taken care of!
Call in and see what we have done, I particularly like the Scrapbook. Cake Decorating and Ribbon sections

It looks like my Demonstration Dilemma will finally be resolved on Saturday! I am hoping to play with paper beads and Frantage and perhaps the Melting Pot. I can’t wait, I hope that you can call in and see what I produce.

The count down to my big adventure has started, six big sleeps and I will be on my way (only three working days). That’s a blessing as I have only packed one thing so far, no panic!
Don’t worry, I am hoping to blog whilst I am away, especially if I find any craft shops or ideas.
Each day I will give you a clue to guess where I am going. Todays clue is:- my passport is already packed.
WILL my demonstration Dilemma finally be resolved?
WHO will win the Blog Candy for Where’s Gilly and the email link.
WILL I be packed in time for my big adventure?
WHERE am I going for my big adventure?
