Hi Crafters
Don't the weeks spin around at an alarming pace? New product is still pouring through the door and the shop is FULL!  Kaisercraft has been held up (again) but got out of customs today and we will have it delivered on Monday. It's online today for you to order - and don't delay. Wandering Ivy is totally on-trend with it's blues/purples and green hues and the workshop magazine is full of inspiration as usual.

This week, we're also featuring some more kits and packs that we have available to sell. They were VERY popular last week and we sold out of some designs. Don't delay!

DIE CUT AND BOND - 25 BONDS
Here at Artfull Crafts we value your hygeine needs, so I got excited to see a big delivery of what looked like handy paper towels. We are always running out and I was certain they'd be guaranteed to get every bit of dirt/glitter off your hands.  But the staff members informed me (after I'd hung it in the kitchen) that they weren't towels after all, but rather some kind of sticky tape - 12cm wide?? I guess after using this stuff you may not have any fingerprints left, but we guarantee your hands will be clean!
I now know that Die Cut 'n Bond is actually a wide double-sided tape for die cutting. Cut and peel onto the back of card, run through your die-cutting machine, then peel off back and stick into project. Alternatively you can or add glitter or metal foils to the sticky part and bling up your life!!

We've been enjoying the beautiful weather this past week, but it was hot work finishing digging the holes and installing these boxes in our back yard. They might look like an art installation, but they are actually boxing for our concrete foundations for the shipping containers! Yesterday we passed the pre-pour inspection and any day now the concrete will be arriving. That will be a BIG job ticked off before Christmas! At this time of year, I don't write lists about presents (and who has been naughty and nice), rather I'm busy writing lists of things that need doing before Christmas. And the list keeps growing...
This weekend we have our annual church picnic and 6 guests are coming to stay at the house. So best I head outdoors tonight to weed the vege garden. Enjoy your weekend!
