Senz in two weeks

Like what you see... click here to go and check out our website!
Hi all
I hope you are all enjoying this weather, sometimes it is like the middle of summer, and the next day it is Pea soup fog.  I sat outside the other morning for about an hour doing paper work, it was so lovely, and the next minute the clouds came in and well it was back inside. 

I may have an empty house (with the extended family all moving out) but it seems that doesn't mean the food bill goes down at all.  Never having had boys I was surprised when my friend Danyon, called round and says "Jo, should I go and pre heat the oven for you?" Pre heat the oven? I say confused.  "Oh aren't you baking me sausage rolls this week? ....Oh and I really liked those cupcakes last week..." he replies with a grin.  Just as well I have the time to bake aye?  

I must admit cooking is a nice change from packing kits for Senz, which I am pleased are all done!
- We had a plan, things that had to be done! Check.
- Things that we should get done.  Check
- Things that I would like to get done.  Check
- Things we don't stand a chance of getting done.... your right check, we are on to them.  

Whew, Don't ask how, but long long hours and we are on schedule.  We have even managed to draw a plan of the stand, and its not even the day before.

Miracles do happen now and again, and that is all with a machine out of action for a month.!!!

We are looking forward to catching up with you if you go to Senz, no purple hair this year, but the lipstick has been purchased, lol.  Come and say hi,  if we are your way over the next few months at various locations - see a full list at the bottom of the newsletter of upcoming events, their locations and times the shop is closed.

Jo

Pinkalicious this weekend!

View this email in your browser
Like what you see... click here to go and check out our website!
Hi all

Today marks the start of the new show season for us and we are about to pack the car so we can head off down the line!!! It also marks the start of Aly having to spend several long hours in the car with me... bouting out Abba, Boy George, Ronan Keating and Il Divo hits!!! If she is lucky she might get to sleep, if not she gets to hear me loud and clear, who envious of her right now!!!

I / We have been totally overwhelmed by the support we have received for our classes at Senz this year - with four of the seven now sold out on day one- then we managed t secure a bigger classroom, and then we have been able put on secondary classes for two of them which is great! We are busy cutting all the stock for them - unlike most of the tutors, we have to manufacture almost everything we use in our classes - chipboard, MDF, Quote sheets, instructions etc and some of what the other tutors will be using in their classes too! 

We have been busy ordering stock for Senz and will be bringing some new exciting products as well as some old favorites (like the glitter art glue!!!) which are finally back in stock after a long hiatus.

Our make 'n' take has been designed for Pinkalicious and Senz so I am feeling extremely efficient at the moment!!! A first in a while...


We are in Palmerston North this weekend forPinkalicious which runs from 10am-4.30pm this Saturday (20th May) at the Christian Community Centre. It is a Scrapbooking and Rubber Stamping fundraiser with entry costs $15.00 per person and all profits from the Door Sales, Auction and Raffle go to Arohanui Hospice. So if you are in Palmerston North on Saturday come along and see us!

We look forward to catching up with you all, come and say hi if we are your way over the next few months at various locations - see a full list at the bottom of the newsletter of upcoming events, their locations and times the shop is closed.

Jo  

PS. Don't forget to book your spot at C4 this year being held in November! C4 this year has the theme of  - Colour, Candy and Creative Chaos and spaces are filling up (see the bottom of this newsletter for more details)!!
