Tour of the shop...Part one...

Many of you have never seen inside our studio shop, so I am going to spend a few days giving you the grand tour.

this table is just inside the doors and holds our collection of trunks and cases.


Then we have the "bits n bobs" shelves

holding my favourites...Moleskine Journals

Luscious fat quarters

And the infamous pick n mix shelves

The view as you walk in the shop

And then we are going to go down the first wall

Stampers Anonymous...Tim Holtz


Art Parts

Claudine Helmuth

Dyan's downloads


Wendy Vecchi

Essentials from Ranger

Phew that's the first wall done

Enjoy xx

Ooh wish I lived closer. I would like to order a set each of those fat quarters on the first material picture. They are not on line. What do I ask for if I call the shop. Fabulous tour, Tracy Evans x. Email

OMG-Sorry I live so far away! My heart went pitter-patter with every picture! Thank you :)

Mo said...

Wow, Dyan. Only one word for your shop - scrumpcious! I could spnd weeks there. Not to panic - live in Seattle. How far timewise are you from London? Have to visit my Aunt in Amsterdam in the next 6 months and if I flew over London with a 1-night stop it would be so fun to see all this live. Meanwhile, totally enjoying the tour. Thanks. (Am eagerly awaitng my order of your acrylics.)

Boy o boy I wish you were in the States...really really close to me :)

Kat said...

I am loving your tour,
but it makes me sad because
I feel i'm missing out on such a fab shop, not to mention such cool classes & workshops,
if I lived closer I would definately be an AFTH stalker (lol)
have a grate day,

salamanda said...

The shop looks wonderful and somewhere I could spend many comfortable hours.

Caroline said...

wow! I wished I loved closer you have such a fab selection of goodies! But on the other hand, I'm glad I dont live near you as 1) I would never be out of your shop, and 2) I'd be broke within a few days becasue I would have to buy at least 1 of EVERYTHING! :)

purplecat said...

Kirsten Alicia said...
