Hi to everyone,
Welcome to all our new subscribers, there are a few of you, and I am really happy to have you join us here at Imagine If.
I hope winter is all treating you well, not as cold as I would like personally, am I the only one who likes cold wet days?
I love the cold....that's right I said it, I really like the cold
weather! I don't like no power on cold wet days though, that is just
taking it to far, and I have had a couple of those, but I did get to
play the whole day, and I found a whole new love for super glue. I have
however just heard that unpacking and set up day is going to be in the
rain in Auckland for Senz, that sounds like a whole lot of fun, that
might be taking it to far.
So Senz is this week, starts on Friday, and we are all go, packed and ready. It's all New Zealand made, so excited.
We have 200 chipboard designs, including titles and words.
5 Chipboard overlay designs (love these)
25 stencils, I listened to what was needed, and I am very excited with
what I have designed, including a racing track and tyre treads one,
little owls, 3 faces (sold a couple of these to my helpers this week
the moment they saw them)
and some scenes. Made from great stencil film imported from the USA and
it is not thin and cheap and easily torn. The prices are amazing.
We have Canvas, felt, burlap, and calico cutouts, lots more to come in the future.
MDF products, wait till you see the wine and glass holder kit, houses, church, art box, memory box, teapot and lots more.
Quote sheets, I think we have about 20 now, with three still waiting to be printed, so hope to have those there as well.
All New Zealand made, and of course there is New Zealand products in the mix.
So that is what we have been working on, not to mention organising all
of my classes for Senz, which have sold so well, I am very grateful for
the people having faith in me and booking in to my classes, they are
going to be busy busy busy. I am looking forward to getting back into
the classroom after a 6 week break while i got ready for the show.
If you haven't decided to go to Senz yet and you are in Auckland,
Hamilton or even further afield, please try and make the trip. I have
seen a lot of information about what is going to be there and I really
believe this is going to be amazing.
I know that there are other new Zealand products there, and that is just
fantastic, Tanya Leigh designs has her own range, as well as PaperArts
has their range of papers, on the Paperzone stand, which i have been
using and is so amazing, the colours, the mixes. I am using on my make n
takes as well.
If you haven't heard Paperzone in Hamilton may be closing, they are
trying to sell but if it is not sold by the end of the month when their
lease is up they will close. So if you have always wanted to own a craft
shop there is a great opportunity there.
have you joined us on facebook? prizes to be won, lots of information, and new products will be listed on there as well.
I hope you have seen all the blog hops we have been doing, really really impressed with the designers work.
