Not Long now!

Just under a month to go and I havent really scratched the surface yet on the Christmas present front! Off to Chichester tomorrow with the kids for a Christmas shopping trip so hopefully I will get a few more bits sorted.

On that note dont forget to get your orders in time for Christmas!

I am offering a Christmas Wish List Service where I will provide a list for you to fill in and distribute to your family and friends who can then contact me to select your presents! I will gift wrap all presents for FREE. Also gift vouchers available if you have a crafty person who you are not sure what to get.

Also what about the problem of spending all that money you get for Christmas! How about holding a party for family and friends in the New Year and buying all those things that you have been drooling over in the catalogue! An added bonus for January is "Sale a bration" time when free products will be available on all purchases over £45. So contact me to arrange a date.

Big Shot Winner

A big thank you to those ladies who attended the Craft Coffee morning yesterday. Everybody had a go on the "make & take" table and had a play with the Stampin' Up! wheels. They all made this card topper using the Music wheel and Perfect Punches stamp set.
The Big Shot raffle took place and the lucky winner was Vicki Wright, the 2nd prize of a stamp set was won by Ann Bloom and the £5 gift voucher by Geraldine Brockhurst.
Congratulations to you all.
I only wish that everyone that entered could have won a prize.

Flower Shop Event

Its that time of year again when the Flower Shop in Wick hold their "Christmas Event". On Thursday of this coming week between 9 am - 7 pm, the shop will be full of beautiful arrangements to get you in the Christmas mood.

There will be gift ideas, special offers, Christmas novelties, refreshments and a raffle in aid of St Barnabas Hospicce. The arrangements that Michelle does for the raffle are usually out of this world and well worth winning! I will be there too helping and flogging Christmas cards and some of the labels I made last week.

Its for a great cause so if you are passing pop in for a look and maybe a glass of mulled wine and mince pie.

Post operative!

As I am still feeling a little post operative following minor surgery last week, my creative juices haven't really been running.
However I have made these little gift tags which I have been able to pick up and put down when I have felt like it.
It has also been a great way to use up some scraps from the overflowing "scrap box".
I have used Quickutz dies, which work perfectly on my Big Shot. Also thank heavens for the sticker maker too as it save a lot of intricate glueing, which I just don't have the patience for at the mo!

Change of Plan!

Unfortunately the afternoon class on Saturday 26th November has been postponed.

However the Big Shot draw coffee morning is still taking place, but will be bigger and better!

Helen and I have thought it would a great idea to make it a Second Hand craft Sale, for you earn a few pennies for some new stash (hopefully from Stampin' Up!), from your old/unused crafting stuff or come and grab a bargain.

If you would like to have a table for £4 and get rid of some of your surplus stash
then please do not hesitate to contact me and I can save you a table. If not then just come and spend!!

Dont forget it is not only a Big Shot in the raffle, there is a 2nd prize of a stamp set and a 3rd prize of a £5 gift voucher. There will be Stampin' Up! products, gift vouchers and stocking fillers for sale. A make and take and refreshments will also be available.

Come along and dont forget to bring a friend and get your orders in for Christmas. Like last time there will be a 10% discount for any orders placed on the day.
