Viva Craft Vegas

Well, here I go again, off on my travels!!  Getting a little bit regular isn't it.  This time it's work - and I recon it'll be pretty full on and we'll all come back exhausted.  However, mega exciting - Las Vegas, craft, new stuff!!  It's all good.  Part of the gang went this morning, and the second contingency are travelling tomorrow morning - myself included of course.  I think I've packed as much stuff as I did when I went away for 15 days....we're there for 5.  And you just know I'll have forgotten something obvious.  Always makes me laugh, I'm sure they have shops so why am I taking everything I own.

Anyway, I'll take loads of photo's to share with you.  I really hope I get chance to actually walk the show.  It may be tricky as we are filming 10 hours this time, but I have to see the stalls.  The summer show is smaller than the winter one at least, so I may have a chance of getting round it.

As always, when I go away my poor web site is abandoned, so to make up for leaving my lovely customers and delaying sending out your parcels I will be offering a 10% discount for the week.  All you need to do is enter: VEGAS when prompted as you are checking out.  Of course there is still free P&P on all orders over £10.

Okay, I suppose I'd better get on with my jobs - so much to do before boarding that plane in the morning.

Take care everyone, and see you from Vegas!!

Brill crafty poem

Good morning crafters, how are we on this glorious sunny day.  I hope your enjoying the weather - I love it.  Back in work today, but I have a great day (easy day actually - don't tell the bosses!!).  I've just spent an hour with by buddy showing the new Polka Doodles CD, goes without saying, I love it! I've then got our wonderful Christine with whats left of the 4 day deal.  Then same again this afternoon, Easy peasy and lovely!

Now, I wanted to share a poem a clever viewer sent in, as we didn't have chance to read the email last week, and  it's such a shame cos it's a cracker!

It was the Creata show, but last week we had the lovely Rosella join us, who taught us hints and tips regarding Pergamano.  It was a lovely show, and Rosella's first full hour.  She did so well.  Anyhow, this is the poem from Tina-Maree (thank you):

 "At first we were sad when we got to know

our fab Carley wasn't doing the show


but the crafty army are born to survive 

we are on-line and watching you live


we are not sad, nor full of woe

we are raring to give parchment a go


be a brave girl and ignore any fears

we're here to watch you and nab your idea's


flowers and butterflies parchment galore, 

and you're with a presenter we simply adore.


It's chow for now I must really go

Have to dig out me parchment and do me pergamano"


Good isn't it!! 
Righto folks, off to get ready for our Christine, see you soon xxx
