Hi I am so enjoying today, just a little cooler than it has been, a little rain will certainly help. I know that Twiggy our cat has been happy, she comes into our room and sleeps under the fan, and just in line with air-con unit, and seems to sleep soundly, I on the other hand find myself sleeping on the edge of the bed. We thought our other cat was out of sorts the other day as he had actually curled up on our bed (not in his usual spot in the wardrobe), I went in a little later and found the fan turned on, him stretched out, and looked extremely comfortable, sound asleep. I thought he had a fever my big tough husband announced. Good life in our house if your a cat I think.
The year is underway, we have been having lots of people coming to visit from out of town, so that has been awesome. Sammy has been flat tack booking accommodation for all our classes on our tour with Pretty Rustic, as well as ferrys, and flights, and buses and anything else she can think of. I don't know what is happening in Auckland in July besides Senz of course, but accommodation for 6 people was not easy to find, so if there is a group of you going I suggest that you do book early, as a lot of the two room apartments were all gone. Aly is already busy with invitations, cake toppers, and business cards, and Pauline? well she went on holiday!
We have started our class list, and we will be adding to it every week, we have Cheryl teaching for us every Thursday and one Saturday per month (where possible) she will be teaching lots of varying classes, from week 1 making a small envelope book. We are trying to keep these classes at a low cost for you where possible.
I am back teaching weekly scrapbooking classes, and Pauline is teaching one card class every month. I am also teaching one off classes, like the Valentine heart, as I can fit them in, with everything else.
We have a lot of new kits underway, but of course our focus is Pretty Rustic tour at the moment, if you havent booked in, and you want to, there is limited spaces left.
Well that's all for now, we will have a newsletter out next week with pre-orders in them, as we have been busy ordering stock as it is being released at Creativation in the USA this week.
Don't forget we have a BIG Announcement to come ...and you do not want to miss it!
