Good evening crafters,
It a busy day in the shop yesterday, with the Craft Club (yes it was Topsy Turvey Thursday) and two deliveries we still had time to put the last touches to the details of the October, November Workshop brochure which is now going to print and finalise Saturdays demonstration.
I will be demonstrating the Melt Pot and will be using distress inks and gilding wax to colour the ultra thick embossing powder. Why not call in and see what I create.

I am not sure where the weekend is rushing of to ! It does not seem like two minutes ago that it was Thursday Coffee and Craft Club at craftrange.com.

Cant believe that X Factor has started again, that only means one thing – it’s a count down to Christmas hehehe, Oh I Love Christmas.

Quick update then I am of deer hunting, with camera !
Everything is well underway now for the Free Demonstration Day at http://www.craftrange.com I quite simply love these days – there so much fun and there is always a great atmosphere. We have fabulous demonstrators for you including Lynell Harlow all the way from USA (Owner/designer from Dreamweaver Stencils) her work is amazing, you will not be disappointed. We also have Maria Simms for the first time at Craftrange, you will adore Maria and her work – many will have seen Maria on Create and Craft TV. Hope you can all join us for another great Event.

Good morning crafters,
Yes, the race is on, I am demonstrating today using paper beads, Frantage and the melt pot. I am hoping to make the beads into a sample piece of jewellery too!
No time to hang around blogging.
Todays clue for where I am going on my big adventure is:-
I am not staying in America but catching an internal and then internation flight ……..
WHERE am I going on my big adventure?
WILL I have time today to resolve my demonstration dilemma?
WHO will win the blog candy for the Where’s Gilly and email link?

Demonstration Dilemma Resolved?


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?
