Fancy Pants pre-order...

I just love the new Fancy Pants papers that have come out. But before I order, I would like to know do you prefer a collection pack or to buy everything individually? Which one would you buy? There are so many great products out there - it is very hard to pick and choose so I am leaving the decision in your hands!

The papers would be (all prices are approx. depends on postage costs) $1.65, the collection packs $39.95 and the stickers sheets $4.99.
Please comment or e-mail me if you prefer.  :-)

Why not to let your 3 year old near a layout....

Mr 3 thought it was a great idea to pluck a rhinestone from my layout and stick it up his nose.....I can see something shiny in there but can't reach it with the tweezers! That was after getting his head stuck in his sister's doll house! (I am such a good mother - he was crying/screaming to get out and I first go and get the camera....

What a week!

Thanks to everyone who came in to visit during our inaugural week. And thank you for all the kind and encouraging comments!

The school doors open again in the morning so that also means a term full of classes are about to start as well.

The class schedule has been changed a little due to some requests. (Yes I do really listen to everyone's input - can't always do everything but I try :-) )

In week 5 we have scheduled a Flower Power week! Learn to make quilled flowers on the Tuesday,  a layout class on the Wednesday (with lots and lots of flowers! ) and on Friday learn to make 8 different types of flowers. Some from paper others from fabric. These can be used in layouts as well as other crafts. The very talented Amber will be teaching this class. I am still trying to convince her to stay in Geraldton and not move to Tasmania. But before she leaves I will try and squeeze as many techniques and classes I can from her!

We have also planned in a Baby Week. Full of baby ideas and layouts, and then in week 8&9 we are having a Christmas fortnight. Lots of last minute card classes / ideas as well as table and home decorating ideas.

There are also plenty of other classes. You can drop in a collect a class schedule or send me your e-mail address and I will forward a copy to you.

Hope you all have a fantastic week!

I know, I know I haven't kept up to date with the posting. But we did go to Europe for 3 weeks and when we came back we were working extremely hard to open our retail store.

We have now officially opened our doors, and have received some wonderful comments which has made our hard work worth it!

On the weekend I will be working overtime to try and get all the stock listed on the brand spanking new website.

Here are a couple of photos from our opening night...Christine and Joanne showing the way to the classroom. {which will be finished by next week :-) }
Our display table as you enter the shop. The layouts were made using the Pina Colada collection by the very talented Jandell! Very happy to have her as part of our design team.
Sam and Renae having a chat.
Tara, Fiona and Maureen checking out the display...

Shopping...You can see the back of Amber (talking to Nancy) who is also a part of our design team. Her forte is BTP items. Her work is simply stunning!Jodie and Nancy having a chat...
Becci having a look at the few flourishes we had left...they literally flew out the door. Not to worry, more flourishes are on their way across the Nullabor as I'm typing.
Doreen would like to start scrapbooking....when she gets a spare moment! And of course Elisa is also in the photo - she just wants to own my shop! :)

I'll be back on the weekend...hope you all have a great Friday.
