Here we are term 3 has started, winter is upon us, and it is only 5 months till Christmas!
It is amazing how time flies, I have just this weekend celebrated my youngest child Samantha's 21st birthday.  It is incredible how fast they grow up, I know people have been saying that forever but it seems crazy, that it was just the other day I was taking her home from the birthing centre, and then it was her first day of school, now in 8 weeks she will have finished her double degree in History and ancient history.

We have started the term with a bit of a quiet start, after senz and then the 21st had a pre 1900 theme for it, so I needed a bit of time to catch my breath.

We have stock arriving all the time, but I have to be honest and say we are really just restocking the basics at the moment, as we didn't even have one tube of glue in the shop, but that has been remedied now.  We will upload the stock to the website as quickly as we can.

This email is mostly about classes, as I am getting asked on a daily basis what we are up to.

Set classes
Wednesday morning scrapbooking:  This is still a full class, but if you are keen please feel free to put your name on the wait list.

Every 2nd Friday morning card class: This is also a full class, but you can go on the wait list.

Thursday evening: this class fluctuates between overfull, full and sometimes a couple of spaces depending on the week, so if you are keen please phone for a chat.  Jo on 0274991485.

One off classes:

Saturday 1st August Card class $20.00  10am - 1pm.

3 cards, one step card with a sewing theme, one purple swing card, and one twist card.
We will be using peelcraft stickers, to decorate our three different cards, as well as some awesome paper arts paper.
I unfortunately forgot to bring the cards home to photograph, so I cannot show them to you, but they look amazing.

Saturday 15th August - 10am - 3pm Apothecary class $50.00 or hollow book class $65.00
I have a few of each of these classes from Senz left over, so I am going to do a double class.  You can work on either project, the apothcary kit dark or light version or the Hollow book secret garden kit.  Everything is supplied except your glues.

For the apothecary class you will build the cupboard and decorate and fill all the bottles and vials, make some embellishments.

or  for the hollow book, you will make the book, decorate it and make the hidden garden inside.  it is a 30cm x 30cm project, so there is lots not seen in the photo.

this is just part of what is inside the book.

Thursday night 20th August and 27th August 6pm - 8pm $50.00 Christmas houses (over two weeks) with Alysha.
Christmas house class - there are 2 spots left in this popular senz class.
You will decorate this row of houses, although they will be slightly different from houses pictured and done at senz, as we have had to make adjustments as we have different papers and embellishments.

Friday 21st August - Sunday 23rd August Blenheim Scrapping and paper arts retreat Blenheim.
1 scrapbooking class, 1 christmas house class, 1 card kit and two make n take tag projects.

Saturday September 5th: 9 Scrapbooking pages in a day class. $70.00
We will complete 9 pages, some pretty pink, some grunge blue, some in between.
There are no pictures yet, but I will have them ready next email.

Saturday 19th September Grunge Fairy class $65.00
From this full on Senz class we will be making a fairy, using texture and fibre, and other mixed media bits to make this piece.  You can choose which colours you would like to use, and we will be changing the mixed media piece that are on the fairy as well.  This is just to give you a heads up of the date, and the basic shape / look of the fairy.

Then we will have the Christmas present school holiday program, and then we will start term 4 with all our Christmas classes, including cards and houses, wreaths and more.

So that is the plan,

If you wish to book, please email me on or phone during business hours 0274991485.  Please do not wait, most projects we only have a certain amount of kits available.
All the best for the weeks ahead, and I will keep you updated as new stock becomes available,and changes or updates to classes.
