Newsletter time - school holiday list

Hi all

I hope you all had a great weekend, and it was better than mine.  This weekend I broke 3 of my basic rules in life.  Not one but three!.
No 1:  Never fall over in public..... FAIL.
Did that, straight on to my face in a car park full of people, on the gravel, not sure what hurts the most, face, knee, chest, hands or my pride.
No 2: Never go to a boxing match: Fail
My eldest daughter decided in her wisdom that she would take up boxing, after doing martial arts for years.  Mum had to go of course, even though she dislikes violence of any sorts. It was a good match however, and I was very surprised by my blonde blue eyed daughter, once she had her gear on, she looked tough, and when she was in the boxing ring I was very surprised how good she looked.  She didn't win, but it was her first fight.  I look worse than she does.
No 3:  Never condone violence.  Fail.
I promosed myself I wouldn't say those words HIT HER!.  I did in the third round, I said it.

So that was my weekend, now back to crafting where I can keep my golden rules in place.

We have so far designed 9 classes for senz, that is right 9 classes. So if you havn't got your tickets you need to get them.  I am very proud of what we have designed.
Ngaere Bennets is teaching 2 classes, and Miss Boxer from above, Alysha is taking 1 class.  I will be taking the other 6.
So get your tickets.

New Competition
The design team has just about come to the end of their term, and I wanted to let you know what was happening.  With the shop workload getting bigger and bigger we have decided that the design team is just so much work, that I cannot continue to run it, it it's current format.  I have decided instead to run a monthly competition with prizes.   I see so many talented ladies come and see me or email me and I have decided that it is time we got to see what everyone is working on.
We don't have to many rules, except you must follow the brief... and it will be a brief brief.  It can be scrapbooking, art, mixed media, off the page, cards or albums or ? Surprise us.
There is only one thing that we ask, as we are a manufacturer of chipboard, MDF and stencil products if you are going to use those products, they need to be from our range please.  Other than that, no other rules.  However if someone enters something inappropriate we reserve the right not to publish it.   Easy..

So we will be starting the competition in April, and seeing as it is that time of the year, I have picked Autumn as the theme.  Now this is a wide theme, autumn the colours, autumn leaves, autumn ?

Email your entries to by the 20th April and we will put you into the competition.

Don't forget to follow us on facebook for updates, blog details, and other bits of information.

Have an awesome week, hope you get a chance to craft.
