I am still here!!!!

OK this one is for you mum!!!!

My mum has been nagging me to get on here and tell you what has been going on!

And you know when so much is happening you forget what has just happened...... well that is were we are at at the moment.

Life at YTC and All About Beads & Bears is always busy. I have to say it is getting hard to keep on top of the stock at both shops.... they Bury shop is getting busier and busier (for which i am not complaining one little bit!) and we are really pleased with how the Norwich shop has picked up.

Oh while i remember..... those of you that attended the Spring Workshop that Sara and i did back at the end of March, will (I hope) be pleased to know that we are planning on doing another one in September. We are looking at 13th September at the moment so pencil that date in and we will confirm just as soon as the venues confirms with us. It will be a similar layout as the spring one but we promise to put in a few more loo breaks for those of you that requested it! haha.... see we did read the comments forms you all filled in!

It will be 4 classes and lunch again, and if we have time at the end we will do the mini make n take. Oh and of course a little goody bag for fun.

In the mean time..... life Carry's on at both shops. Suezie is Demoing in Bury the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month from 9.30am - 1pm (ish). This weekend is some lovely summer papers and nestabilities i believe. I leave that all to Suezie to deal with on my behalf.... Thanks Suezie.

We also had Mum's birthday this last week so we had a lovely family dinner on Monday (her Birthday) and then on Tuesday a few of us got together at the shop and did our own thing. I had a little go at the pop out dies from ellisons and i was really please with just how easy they are. I also got to make my own mini book that everyone made on the spring workshop.

It was a really fun evening and we all had a really good laugh..... particularly at the thought of Rosina and Brian in Ibiza. Rosina is going to go clubbing in the foam and win a wet t-shirt comp.... looking forward to seeing that scrapbook with that in!!!! You go girl!!!!! hahaha

Anyway, for those of you that were booked on Annie's Scrapbook class last Thursday, i am very sorry that it had to be cancelled but poor Annie has a chest infection and Pleurisy. (spelling a bit off i think!!!). The whole family has been very under the weather this week so i am hoping they are feeling a little better. Get well soon xx.

We will of course let you know when we are rescheduling Annie back. She was planning on doing a lovely Mini book with the bind it all. Just keep an eye out for the new date.

Suezie has a papercraft class on Wednesday evening. If you pop into the shop tomorrow (Saturday) i am hoping she will have the sample so you can see what it is. We have a couple of places left on the class so if you want to join us let them know in the shop. They will put you on the list!!!!

Ok i am off to carry on with my blog about our house in Florida now. Anyone looking to go out to Sunny Orlando.... check it out! (when i finally get it finished!!!)

See you all soon
Manda, Kay and Rosina x
