No i Hadn't forgotten i had started a blog!!!!!

As ever life at Your Touch of Craft has been manic.....

We Did the Workshop which i have told you about and that was a great success. The week before the workshop i got the keys for our second shop in Taverham in Norwich. So we had to decorate, put new floor down and a new ceiling up..... no end to my talents you know!

Then the following Sunday we had the Thetford Papercraft show on the Sunday, which was a really nice day and very very busy, so we were all shattered. My Dad, Sister and Brother-in-law were at the new shop putting the slatwall up while mum, myself and Suezie did the show. (no rest in my family..... Sunday is get it done day!).

We then had 4 days to get the shop stocked and ready for opening Good Friday. We were still hanging beads on the Friday but we did get in and open. We can only sell Beads and Teddy bears over there at the moment, but i am trying to get the papercrafts over there as well! Watch this space as they say.

In the middle of all that we are still running the classes at both shops and they are going really well. Suezie has had some lovely ideas with some of the new stuff we are getting in every day!!!

Suezie is demoing for me the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9.30 - 1ish. So if you are in town pop in and say hello and see what she is doing.

That said, this Saturday is our 1 year anniversary in the Risbygate Street shop..... where does time go. So we have Dawn Inskip of Bramwells coming to demo the new K&Co Wild Raspberry range. We have put the bit and pieces out in the shop now and they are selling really fast..... Dawn does some lovely things to please pop in and have a cake with us and see what she is doing.

We are also finally launching our Loyalty Card on Saturday so now you can get something from us for spending your pennies with us.......

Ok I am off to carry on putting the stock for the Norwich Shop on the computer now..... i can't keep putting it off!
