How long has it been since

I posted on my blog? Too long and I am sorry but things and life have been hectic as usual.

I was really busy with my Niece's wedding, I had alot of orders for the wedding from different members of the family and most of them to kept as a secret and none of which I have photo's of, I must remember to take pictures of stuff as I make it. Even though it was a busy time I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding, it was a lovely day and nice to be able to relax a while. Thanks to Karen for looking after the shop for me.

So where are we up to now? The shop has been busy first with craft club which has now been extended to 3 sessions a week with a 4th session in the planning stages, then we had father's day with lots of special orders for that.

Then it was time to re-stock with Candy Bouquets, these are a few of the ones we have in stock at the minute

Then the birth of our new Granddaughter to prepare for, Katie Jayne was born on Thursday weighing a healthy 8lb 9oz, Mum and baby are doing fine and hopefully will be home today. Well with a new baby it was time to stock up on the baby section so Nappy Cakes were first on the list

This one was made for Katie

These are a few of the others we have in the shop

The items on the Baby section sell out really fast so its a constant battle to keep the shelves stocked. The nappy cakes are really popular with our customers as are the personalised canvases we make

These are a couple I did remember to take photo's of although I have made some for orders which I have no pics of.

Well that's all for now folks, back to the grindstone with another busy day ahead as we are at a craft event on July 4th and stock is needed for that.

Father's Day ...

All images are by the fantastic Mo Manning and coloured using Sansador and pencils.

Maz had a busy week in the build up to Father's Day selling her handmade gifts for Dad's and lots of baby things too. the personalized items are very popular for the babies and for the younger members of the community.
Next week Maz is busy completing some orders and compiling our list of "C" word workshops. Yes I know we're still in June but it's got to be done. So watch out for some sneak peaks in the coming weeks.

The Stampin' Up demonstration on the 26th of June is now cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Sorry stampers.
