First Day

Today was the first day of our in store sale, it was pretty hectic so we didn't get much of the mail order out but we have prepared it all ready to be despatched in the morning.

If you didn't make it in to see us today I hope you'll be able to make it in by the end of the week as we have some fabulous bargains.

You may have noticed we have been using the Peeking & Praying Angels quite a bit this year. This is another card from Lesley, also featuring the Small Copperplate Merry Christmas. The small clouds in the background were created with the Eclipse masking tape and stippling colour over the top.
This is the JudiKins Eskimo and Printworks Warm Winter Wishes. Use your cuttlebug or Cricut to cut out trees for the background.

Simply Cards & Papercraft

Have you seen the latest issue of this magazine? Issue 66, if you turn to page 39 you will see a photo of our lovely Lesley and 7 pages of Lesley's artwork using our fab JudiKins SnowGlobe/Goldfish Bowl.

As several of the stamps used are Stamps by Judith you may have to call us to place your order as we can't put their stamps on our website.

We've nearly finished sending out the Newsletters so hopefully next week I will be able to post up some more artwork from our new TV shows.

Have a good weekend

Thursday 10 December 2009


I am a littley bleary eyed this morning as we had a late night last night. We went to see Cinderella at the Milton Keynes Theatre which is starring Louise Dearman, Bobby Davro, Anthea Turner, Mickey Rooney and Prince Charming was played by Anthony Kavanagh (Kavana the popstar in the 90s), he is not the advertised Prince Charming and I have to say he is the campest Prince Charming I have ever seen but this all made for a very entertaining show.

Bobby Davro was definitely the star of the show - he was certainly there to entertain the parents! Whether some of the incidents were planned or accidents I don't know but it was hilarious and I would thoroughly recommend you go and see it - children not required, although mine loved it.

It is 8am and my kids are still in bed fast asleep and today is Bailey's 4th birthday, so I'll guess we'll have to do presents this evening as waking them is probably going to take ages. But I bet they'll have some strange stories to tell their friends today about last nights panto. There was a disco ball in the theatre that was used for one of the dancing scenes and Bailey was so funny - he laid back starring at the walls and ceiling going ' wowwwwww' until they switched it off.

Anyway I must go now and start waking them and me.

New Shows

Today we are filming the new shows I mentioned last week but we've decided to hold off showing them until January, something to do with the VAT messing up the on screen prices!

The Mini-Mag/Newsletter is finally finished and the first batch went in the post last night. If we are really really lucky we'll get them all out by the end of the week. It includes a flyer with the dates of the new shows in January as well as lots of gorgeous artwork from our Design Team and staff. There is also a list of workshops for the first half of the year and I will try and put these on our website by the end of the week so you can book online.

Now the newsletter is finished and my new hard drive has arrived I'm hoping to start work on our new catalogue so it will be ready early next year. Our new website is still under construction - who knew it could be so complicated! I've got my fingers crossed that it will be ready for the New Year (only 3 months late!)

Before I go, don't forget tomorrow is our project club and late night shopping in our store - open until 9pm.

Hope to see you soon
