All ready to go tomorrow!

Hi to everyone,

I cannot believe how fast this month has gone, from a wreck of a building we are now ready to open Wednesday, and except for 4 holes in the ceiling of the hallway we are looking pretty good.

Facebook: if you have been following us on face book, you may have seen this post.

So those days when hubby brings you shopping, he can sit here, chill out, and I will replace the magazines with boys ones. he can even get a coffee or pop across the road to the council cafe have a beer, and watch the sports. So no need to panic now when hubby comes with you to the craft shop, we will distract him while you shop in peace.

This post caused me so much problems on facebook, it seems my husband now thinks that when ever I am in the craft shop he is allowed to go over to the cafe and have a beer!  because that is what my post said.  Hmmmmm must re word posts in future. 

The signs went up on Monday , the classroom Is ready, see picture below

as you can see there is plenty of room for all the classes planned.

We open at 10am on Wednesday 27th August,  call in and check us out.

There is just one small glitch with opening, it will have to be cash only, as  our eft pos/credit card is still being sorted out, hopefully it will be in soon.

We are waiting on a lot of the new release papers, that don't get released until the 1st week of September,  but we do have the amazing Paper- Arts papers in stock, and a few others.
All our papers are $2.00, all our cardstock is $1.00.

We have a fabulous range of chipboard, and stencils are all cut and re stocked, including the very popular faces, owls, boys words and racing stencils.

The Mixed media products are in stock including mediums, gels, gessos, and vivas  and we have a great range of flowers and metal embellishments (no paint yet though).  There is a lot more due in over the next month, unfortunately products take a while to get here, and I want to start of with all new product where possible.  but I think you will find something to make you excited when you come in.      

We will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 10am - 4pm.
Closed Tuesday (except by appointment)  i need to manufacture and i cannot while the shop is open
Saturdays 10am - 1pm.

Our address is 25A Canada street, Morrinsville
if you are coming down the mail street and the Crazy cow cafe is on your right, you need to turn right, and if if it is on your left you need to turn left.  There is parking behind the shop, if you need to.  We have allocated parking spaces so please only park in those, they have Imagine if.. on them.  Please do not park in anyone else's area or you can park on Canada street, or the main street and walk down.

The shop isn't the biggest, but if you know me you kn ow I can pack a lot of product into a small space.  There is a lot more coming, and a lot more being manufactured.
