Hi Crafters
2 S words this week. Sleep and SENZ! Sometimes I even sleep about SENZ. We've kitted a few hundred packs and kits and today we start to pack stock into boxes. The pallet arrives for pick-up tomorrow afternoon. We rail the stock to Auckland for the BIG event, while the rest of us fly next Wednesday. The shop WILL still be open though and so will the website!

This week, keep reading to see what great new Rubbadubbadoo stamps we have instore, along with our second Heartfelt Creations pre-order.  Not only that, it's almost July (had you noticed!). Kaiser's 2 new collections are Lilac Whisper and Golden Grove and we have the full collections on pre-order for a 15% discount. We'll have the individual products loaded up at the start of July. We've also got out hands on the new Take Ten Magazine. It's a fabulous mag filled with inspiration.

The American Crafts and WRMK tools are being processed by our supplier and we will see them here either later this week or early next.
DEFLECTO TILT BINS
When I hear 'Tilt Bin', I think of those antique kitchen cabinets with bins to store flour. Nowadays if you'd like one of those in your kitchen, you'll need a lot of dough...
Did you know that flour dust suspended in the air is explosive? Something to do with powder + oxygen apparently. It'd be nasty to have your vintage cabinet blow to pieces whilst baking a cake huh? That would make it a has-bin... 
The ultimate in storage versatility! The interlocking dovetail design allows bins to stack and connect vertically or horizontally. The bins tilt out effortlessly and stay open when in use; remove completely for easy cleaning and refilling. Use on a table, mount directly on a wall, or hang them on a mounting bar.

** UPDATE** TIM HOLTZ STAMP PLATFORM (third shipment now arriving August)
The Platform has been caught up in a legal case brought against them by MISTI (click here to read about this lawsuit). They are not allowed to sell them in the USA and they will have to rework the design and remove some features. We are lucky to still be able to get the original version shipped out of Europe where the patent laws don't apply. Check out Tim's video here and order now!
However, the demand has been huge since this announcement and Tonic cannot fulfill our third order by July as initilaly indicated. They are manufacturing more now and we will have to wait until August to get our hands on more of these. We do apologise for the delay. Don't delay in pre-odering today!

The steps are done! And the cutest thing happened on Sunday. A little 3 year old friend was so impressed with the steps, that he called out to his father, "Dad, Dad. Look at these new steps!". His 6-year old brother then came into the house and said, "Liz, I really like your new steps!". Isn't it funny what kids notice? So now we just need to flank the stairs with some planter boxes for our kitchen herbs. And after that we'll build some more steps, finish off the sides, do a ramp, build some deck furniture... you get the idea! This project is far from complete. People ask if I ever stop. And I answer, "Yes, I sleep for 8 hours a night."

This weekend I will be creating foam flowers for an amazing new product we're launching at SENZ. Can't wait to share that with you soon! Have a super weekend...
