Hi to everyone and hello 2015.
So we begin another exciting year, lots more plans and classes already underway, but first a quick catch up. .
Firstly we had an awesome Christmas, well
two actually Christmas eve at my place, and those that were still around
Christmas day, at my brother and sister n laws with awesome food and
The best thing we did however was a week in Vanuatu with the girls and their partners, where we learnt a few things:
No1: My husband tried to drown me on a jet ski... he was probably
trying to pay me back for all the newsletter comments that I make about
him. But it was okay because I ended up going with the tour guide.. a
strapping young man, shirtless..but he did have a life jacket on, (no
actually I hung on to the seat - not him) but was awesome.
No 2: You should never play Monopoly with the two boys as they formed a
partnership (who knew that was legal) gave free passes to each other and
tried to take over NZ (NZ Monopoly), however they forgot there was four
Johnson's playing, so with a little bit of team work (okay we helped
each other out) we took the boys down, playing late into the night
(actually early morning) to do so though.
So that was my holiday, though I have to say doing class plans on the
deck at the Bali Hai club was awesome, all my Senz classes are drawn up,
my Nelson SPA retreat weekend classes are drawn up, scrap classes are
planned, and ready to be actually completed.
I have spent hours on the website, and if you check it out you will see
that we have loaded most of the mixed media products we stock
all the miniatures for dolls houses, models, and more
we are next on to the chipboard and then
the metal embellishments and we will be up to date, lucky we still have
two weeks before classes start. Then we are all go.
We have started our own range of invitations, they are laser cut, and if
I hadn't left my Ipad sitting on the deck in the sun, and the small
amount of rain we had the other night I would have photos to show you,
unfortunately I now need a new Ipad, (I know stupid! ). We are also
engraving chopping boards and bread boards. So that will all follow,
after i get a new Ipad and re photograph them. But if you have a
wedding to go to I can engrave names and dates into boards, and more.
If you want something really different for a wedding present or a
special anniversary come and have a talk about what we can do.
Hours for Summer:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am - 4pm
Saturday 1-am - 12pm
Please note: Even though we are open, the front door maybe be locked,
as we are working on lots of custom cutting now. So for the summer
period we will have access via the back door. If you park in our
carpark come in behind the BNZ bank or behind the Crazy cow restaurant,
then drive behind the creche not the first car park but the 2nd one, we
have named (imagine if) car parks you can use and just come in the back
door (it is the wide open garage door).
If you are on Canada street parked, just go to the right hand side car
park beside triple jump (our neighbours) walk down carpark a few metres,
and the door is right there.
IF I AM SINGING PLEASE IGNORE THE NOISE
These run in conjunction with the school terms. Bookings essential
New Scrapbooking class - Tuesday night 6pm - 8pm $20.00.
This will be for 2 pages, sometimes 3. Everything supplied, except
your tools, tape and glue. Every now and again you may need to purchase
something extra, but usually everything is included in the price. I
teach technique, so you will learn and get to play with lots of
products, sometimes just paper. You get notice of what photos to
bring, and you can always add them later if needed. You need to sign up
for the term, as I need to buy enough product in to cover class
requirements. If we only get a few or if it suits better, we can change to a Thursday night.
