Hi and welcome to December everyone. Can you believe it! The 1st of December 2014. Next thing you know another year will have passed and we will have to write 2015.
I have just finished putting up my Christmas tree, just one this year as I have the painters here, and to be honest the dust is everywhere, I warned them that the kitchen family area had to be completed by today, and it was. So now after my husband spent yesterday cleaning up the dust and mess, (Oh I couldn't help unfortunately had to work..darn that was well planned) I got to do the hard part and put up all the pretty things. So I have a gold, white and black tree this year. Not sure where all the colour went, I just decided that was this years look. Though the shop tree which I hope to get up tomorrow will be purple and silver.
This has been a crazy month, well actually a crazy year. I don't feel like I have stopped, and even when I have managed a bit of time off, the brain has continued to churn. I don't look at anything now with out imagining where the cut lines are, where it needs to be embossed, will it work as a stencil. Just as well I love my job I think.
We have have just finished our last class Saturday class for the year, we have 3 weeks left of scrapbooking classes, and one more card class. We still continue with out UFO class (Unfinished objects class) on Thursday nights, until the 19th of December excluding the 11th December, as we have a private function that night.
Stock arriving is sort of slowing down finally, though we have got all the new Kasiercraft ranges, as well as graphic 45, and much more. I hope that by closing on the 20th of December, we will have a chance to load all the stock on line, as we will finally be ahead, instead of constantly being behind.
Beth Barnes has designed a couple of Christmas stencils, which I managed to cut some on Saturday morning, but then promptly sold them in my tag class, so I didn't even get to photograph them and they were gone. So I will post them on facebook as soon as I re cut tomorrow. There is a holly stencil and a bauble stencil. They are both $6.50 each, and obviously they were popular.
I will try and load them as soon as I can.
The design team has been very busy with more projects and if you click on the links you will get to see what they have been up to.
