The New Year has Begun!!!

Hi Ladies,



That's right in 2009 we are again asking for applications for Design Team Members!!! What do you need to do? Submit to us 2 x single page layouts, 1 x double page layout, 1x Off the Page item and a card. Submissions need to be in by 6th of February with the announcements being made on 16th February - our 1st Birthday!!! So don't be shy ladies - apply - you never know!!

Well the new year is here and 2009 is upon us!! I have set my goals for the year and have already accomplished the first one - writing on the shop blog!!!! Hopefully the rest of the goals will come easy. This is a great thing to scrap and I challenge you all to do a "Goals for 09" page. I will attempt to do mine and post for you in the near future(she says!)

The team from the shop are rearing to go and looking forward to a busy and fantastic year.

We have changed a few things in the shop. The first being crop nights. We will now do fortnightly crops as of February. Every second month we will still hold our Extreme Crop as well as our two regular crops. Our first Extreme will be February the 28th. All crops will be on a Saturday and we look forward to catching up with you all. The crop nights are fantastic!! Six luxurious hours (12 for an Extreme) of scrapbooking!! A group of ladies getting together to create masterpieces in scrapbooking. The shop is open for you and best of all - no kids, no husbands , no interruptions!!!! What more can you ask for?? Phone and book your seat as they do fill quickly.

We also have some great new classes happening and are a must to see. Kylie's Amazing Canvas, Leonie's Fob Watch Album, Jodi B's Cluster and Stitching class just to name a few. Come into the shop and see the display of what will be happening!!!

We have also just started planning for our 2009 camp and have pencilled in The Queen's Birthday Weekend in September! So not three days of scrapping and pampering, but 4 days of scrapping and pampering!! I told you this year is going to be the best!!! We are taking names of interest down but still have to confirm all the details. Last years camp was full and so much fun, so get in quick and don't miss out.

Also put the weekend of the 14th, 15th and 16th of February in your diary!! Our very first birthday!!! And what a year it has been. Full of friendships, suprises and so much more. On the Sunday we are planning to have our birthday cake and demonstrations, as well as door prizes. We hope to see you then to help us celebrate, if not before.

We are very sad to say that Susan Hansord has stepped down from teaching and our design team due to family commitments and work. Susan will still be visiting us in the shop lots and we just want to say a huge thankyou to her. Susan your work is truly amazing!!! This is one very talented lady and we wish her all the best!!! We are also very, very jealous as she is going to America and also to some fantastic classes while she is over there. So Susan you better visit us after your trip with all your work and the goodies you picked up.

Just a reminder that this months Flaunter Pack will be available from the 20th of January!! Another great chance to win a store voucher. We will try and bring you some snippets of the winner from last month. The packs are only $5.00, with a gold coin donation to enter. Just remember you have to use a little bit of everything that you receive in the pack, but the pack items can be altered!!!

Well it is time to go so will blog a bit more tomorrow.

Take care and happy scrapping!!!
