Hi to everyone, and I know.... finally a class list.
Here we are in to September and I cannot believe how
far along the year is already. Welcome to all the new people that have joined
us on our newsletter and face book. Opening week went really well, and except
for a flooding in the shop on Monday (yes it did) two buckets later... 6 towels
(thanks Mother n law) we had it under control, not fixed but not going on the
Just when I though I was on top of all the jobs along
came a nice little bug, and tried to lay me flat. Typical isn't it..one day
fine, the next in front of TV watching back to back episodes of Criminal minds
and CSI, with a little of The Block thrown in for a change of pace, husband
cooked, healthy nutritious fish n chips so no wonder a week later I am still
sick, no chicken soup in sight.
Thanks to everyone who has come to see
us in the new shop, it has been really fun catching up with everyone. We have
had a practice run at classes in there with some friends, and all went well.
Those who have checked out the classroom, all agree it is a great area. Being
out the back it means you can bring your slippers and really chill out and no
one will see. The mens area now has fishing and car magazines, so no excuses
for them to be bored. Although the last male that sat there, read the Woman's
day magazine so I am really not sure that my choice of male magazines is right,
there has been some other suggestions made, which I have chosen
not to go ahead with. I am sure you know what I mean.
the eft pos is nearly sorted just waiting on the machine to arrive.
We have received lots of new
release papers in and more heading our way, Paper arts is in, and the rest any
day. Kaisercraft is on its way as well.
Best product in this week! Easy as
for me, white sharpies, yes white. They are amazing pens and are $5.50 each,
great for mixed media canvas work, and for writing on black paper perfect, not
boring, not dull, in your face WHITE love them.
