Hi Crafters!
We have arrived home from the Dunedin and Invercargill Roadshows in one piece. Thanks ladies for making it an enjoyable visit! Everyone was very kind with their feedback on how much they enjoyed the classes. Now we're off to Christchurch for ONE day this Saturday! We have plenty of spaces still available in the classes, so be sure to join us. The shop in Timaru remains open and Karyn will be in charge of Midnight Madness this Friday.
Meanwhile, there's the usual array of beaut new products to showcase today. The Magical Shakers from Lindy's Stamp Gang sold out on the Roadshows and so we have more arriving tomorrow! We've also got some more Pet themed collections arriving tomorrow, along with Photo Play's Parisian themed products. Don't overlook the new Sue Wilson dies and grab last week's Say Cheese and Emoji colelctions from Simple Stories before they disappear!
We have had the missing Kaiser boxes delivered, so everything from March has arrived, and we're happy to say that the first Tim Holtz Distress Oxide shipment is on track for the end of the month (although the early people who pre-ordered will be the only recipients of this first shipment). The second shipment won't be too far behind (hopefully!).  We are also expecting #2 of the Prima goodies at the end of March. Busy times! The Echo Park products (which we initially expected early-mid March, still haven't arrived, and the latest update from the supplier is that they are hoping to have them at the end of next week. We do apologise for the very late arrival of these fab new collections.
If you can't make the Roadshows, but you want the kits, be sure to order them now. We'll send them out at the end of next week. We have the Ooh La La Treasures kit (layout and/or cards) and the Ubud Dreams Album kit available. Sorry we won't be offering the Altered Clock as a kit. That's a class you'll need to attend!

We've been on the road for 7 days and have "popped" home for 2 days, before shooting up to Christchurch for the Saturday Roadshow. After that we get to stay home for six weeks! So I'm already busy planning the chores around our place that need to be completed before we head to the North Island Roadshows in May. We haven't got the dates finalised for that yet, but we hope to be able to get onto that next week. (After I've had a least one sleep-in)...!
