Our day at Craftwork cards

So our day started very early (4 am!!!!!!!) First Amanda and i picked Suezie up, then Rosina, at that point i probably then fell asleep and no i wasn't driving. We had a good trip to Leeds, and Amanda even let us have a loo break!!! Sue, Julie and all the other members of the Craftwork Cards staff had done a lovely job, the tables looked really nice all pink white and pretty, with a little boxes with cupcakes in for each of us looking very appetizing mmmm.

We had lots of time to check out all the samples that had been made with the new papers which were very pretty. We also had chance to made a cute little bag and a couple of cards with the new papers. Then we were treated to a review of all the new paper collections that they are launching monthly. There are some lovely ones coming out and we will be keeping you informed of there arrival in store so watch this space. Thank you Craftwork cards for a lovely day.

As soon as i can get the Camera from Amanda i will try my best to get some pictures up for you to have a sneak peek at what is coming your way!!!

A week in the life of Your Touch of Craft

We just don't know where time goes, Monday morning found us back in the shop just in time for a delivery of some new stamps that a friend of Amanda's designs, her name is Marion and she is a clever girl.

Tuesday was uneventful and Wednesday saw more goodies I do love it when parcels arrive it is exciting to see what Amanda has ordered. then when we closed Suezie arrived for a sewing tutorial. Amanda, Rosina and I were put through our paces and we loved it (I am hoping to post a pic of Amanda concentrating really hard). We didn't leave the shop till 11pm.

Friday was very hectic we had a huge delivery maybe some sneaky pics and also a visit from Jackie who needed to make some wedding cards which we had already made once but she couldn't find them, I bet she finds them now that she doesn't need to. Hope your family liked them Jackie.

Suezie visited us to get everything ready for the first waltzing mouse workshop, Shirley also popped in it is lovely to see everyone, I nearly forgot Liz as well and she is so good and makes such a good cup of tea, I am looking forward too crafting with her on Wed, she has promised to help make the teas again as we have a Suezie class they are making a mini book and we will be making some new friends as there are a few new ladies coming along which is great.We love the fact that we have made some really good friends through the shop.
Suezie's workshop went really well, the girls worked hard and made some lovely cards and well done Trish i think you won the little goodie bag.
I am so excited tomorrow morning really really early!! Amanda Rosina Suezie and myself are off to Leeds to Craft work cards and John is running the shop solo! so go along and say hi. We will take some pictures tomorrow to show you how we get on in Leeds, so until then .
bye for now.

Bo Bunny

Well Rosina and John had a busy day in the shop today. I felt it was safer to stay out of the way!!! Now the reason for the busy day was New Bo Bonny papers one of the ranges is the peacock Lane range, very pretty, so they had to move things around to make room. Hopefully it wont be long before i start putting some pictures on the blog, there will be no holding me then!

We are looking forward to the Sincerily Yours Papercraft Show in Thetford it is on Sunday 29th of August 2010, as we are hoping to launch a new product, which will be exclusive to YTOC!

HERE GOES.........

Well here goes my first attempt at blogging!

I will be keeping you up to date with all that is going on at Your Touch of Craft.

We are having a crop on the 23rd of July 2010, from 7PM in the shop so please come along and help make this a regular event for a nominal fee of £5.00. This will also include the use of the shops diecutting machines. Of course no evening is complete without the compulsary tea and coffee and "biscuits" and who knows, we do have some multi talented customers who we are now pleased to call friends who are also very clever in the bakery department!

This leads me on to the Saturday projects. On the second Saturday of every month we do a mini project this Sat (July 10th) Rosina will be showing you how to decorate tags for every occasion. If you are interested in joining us for this the cost is £5.00 and runs from 10am till midday. Please phone or pop in and book your place so we know how many kits to get ready. August's project is a very pretty home decor wreath. And again Rosina will be showing you how to make this. September project is rather a special one and we hope to see as many of you as poss, maybe I will keep you in suspense on that one until a later date!!

I am really pleased to say that Suezie's first waltzing mouse extended workshop is full, and everyone is really excited about it, the date for the next one is TBC.

And my final little shout out is.... a bigs 'Thanks' to Chris for popping in and showing us the super card that you made, we loved it! We love to see what you are making so please bring it in and let us see!!!

Ok so they say the first is always the hardest to do so it has to get better from here (i might even learn to put pictures on next time!!) :-)

Thanks Kay x
