Oooh another big delivery from Ranger this morning. Luckiliy, cute little UPS guy, had the help and muscles of both me and the Goddess...!!!!  ha ha - not..!!!  When we unpacked it we realised why it was soooo heavy, it was all the restocks of the Sissix dies, finally winging its way to us...
Ben has been away for the last few days in Edingburgh with the lovely Katie,  and apparantly!!! we have wrecked his shop...ooops, lol. So he set to to try and do new displays with all the new stuff, but Our Emmi was nicking it faster than he could put it out. The website had gone into overload again..I t seems that no matter how much we order in, its never enough, lol. So dont leave it too late as soon the cupboard will, once again, be bare...

 For the  Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations dies including the very popular Caged Bird and Tattered Florals!! The only ones that haven't turned up are the embossing folders, which if you've read Tim's blog you'll know that they have been re-designed by Tim, so will follow soon, look HERE

For more stock of Tim's CHA 2010 idea-ology including - Paper Stacks, Clock Faces, Vintage Buttons, Box Feet, Memo Pins, Charms, Locket Keys etc look HERE
. Paper tape, Ruler Ribbon and the Curio knobs are still to follow.

For all other Ranger, Tim Holtz and Claudine Hellmuth products including Tim's Book, Distress Pads, Ink Pads, Alcohol Inks, Grungeboard, Stickles, Paints, Tools and much more look HERE

I got my alloted amount for the studio and promptly stashed them in a secret hiding place, to ensure that he can,t whip them back if the shop runs out......Don,t say I haven' given you a fair warning of expected fast deteriorating stock levels, because I know that my first loyalty should really be to you the customer, but in this instance it really is "possession is nine tenths of the law"..lmao...

Workshops this week include alcohol ink cards. step by step stunning backgrounds, topped off with a plethora of Tim's stamps.  book HERE oops you can,t book there as the workshop seems to be missing from the workshop list, lol. You will need to ring us for that one -01423 873739.

Thursday I will be using the adorable Wendy Vecchi's range of stamps on cards, tags and Atc's. gorgeous designs and gorgeous results. Book HERE

Sunday, again Its disappeared off the screen somehow, is the Art Journaling for regulars

What with the cowboys and the firemen, now the UPS guy....keep on the right side of him because you need to get ordering some more stuff - I don't want you to be running out before I get there...I need to SEE the stuff so I can torment myself about which to buy!

hi Dy how you doin? Now i know it doesn't take much to play with my mind but that invite on your home page for AFTH bithday had me puddled for a while. First i thought i'd missed another boss day out, then i thought maybe i'd missed a month or two, or maybe was it years. then i figured it out you're so busy at the mo that you had met yourself coming back the other way. see i told you Lol. And i know what you mean about the Tim's alterations cos i check my email and went and put 3 of the dies straight into my basket then got a phone call from saz (she sends her love) then put my tea in the oven and sat down to finish my order and all gone!!! Please can i come on Sunday ? sue x
