March Madness

Like what you see... check out the website
At Mystery Creek November 3rd & 4th

 Hi everyone,

Well we are almost halfway through the month, its been crazy (when isn't it though) and its about to get more hectic!

We had Pretty Rustic Morrinsville on March 3rd and 4th which was super fun(exhausting)! We received mountains of thank yous and compliments so we must of done a good job, which is a relief when you consider how long we have been planning and creating the event! 1 down 5 to go!

Pretty Rustic Dunedin, Invercargill and Christchurch is this weekend, so the week has been spent getting ready for that! After receiving an extremely expensive quote to freight all of our gear we have had to unpack all of our beautiful pizza boxes, repacking them into zip lock bags and flattening out the boxes, there were tears.... But we did it in.

Aly and Jo fly down to Dunedin on Friday Morning with so much luggage, there is no room for clothes, (mums excuse to go shopping), So Pauline and I have decided we are going to go to the beach on Friday and have the next two weeks off seeing as the boss is away. Somehow I think she will find out so on second thoughts maybe we wont do that.

So the shop will be open, and classes are as normal thanks to Pauline and Cheryl taking over, which means I AM IN CHARGE! (That was quick I have only been here three months and now I am the boss for 10 days).

Thats it from me Sammy, (the new boss) for now. 

ps...We have one Tim Holtz Glass Mat left!

Hi all,
Welcome to all our new subscribers, we seem to have quite a few people join us lately for newsletters, so that is awesome.  We have had a fun few weeks, with massive flooding in the back of the shop, 5 days to dry it all with 5 large loud dryers was really not the best environment.  So Pauline and I spent a few days at my place, packing kits, with the doors open, over looking the gully and paddocks listening to the birds chirping, it almost seemed like a small holiday.  Almost!  Just as we finished with all of that on the Wednesday, the clouds opened, and the rain came again, only this time through the roof, and 5 buckets were needed to catch the waterfall (okay really big droplets), lights switched off as water came in the light fittings, we had to try and set up class for 20 ladies the next day, in the dark

Saturday morning, Pauline and Aly had the bad news a friend was killed in a car accident, so I guess when it came down to it, water wasn't the worst thing in the world.  It certainly puts things in perspective, and we were reminded of how precious family and friends are and how fleeting time can be.

So we are starting a new week, with high hopes and positive smiles that this week will be a lot better.  We have had a lot of new stock coming in and out of the door, in fact some stock, has been and gone and didn't even make it on to the website. So we have already had to re-order, and we are now in the queue for new stock, so if you are after the alcohol ink tins, please order these, and trust me, they are amazing! I love love love it.  My inks all stand up, I don't have to spend ages looking for them, at $20.00 they are a fantastic buy.
We did our practice run of Pretty Rustic 20 pages in a weekend, and we were very pleased to say that most people got 20 pages finished, so that was great.   We got some amazing feedback, so feeling very proud of our efforts, now we have 74 people next Saturday, and we are in packing mode again.  See photos from the weekend below!

Well the rest of the email is all in Sammy's capable hands (oh my goodness we have a video on our newsletter), I have a class to get ready for in half an hour, so I had better get my self moving, all the best.
