Hi Crafters
It's just a quick update today as we're taking a 2-day break to see Northland between roadshow stops. They say it's the winter-less north up here, but we've been caught in the southerly blast and it's been as low as 4 degrees overnight... Winter pyjamas are a must, even up here!

Keep reading for new Kaiser products for June and some fabulous Mineral Bursts!
ROADSHOW UPDATE - where in the world are we? 
We spent last Tuesday giving the ladies in Whangarei their crafting fix. This weekend we're in Tauranga on Friday/Saturday, followed by Palmerston North the following Tuesday/Wednesday and finally the Craft Show in New Plymouth for Queen's Birthday weekend. It's been wonderful to see so many familiar faces and to meet new ones. 
Anyone from across NZ can win a class or a $40 voucher by simply helping us to promote the Roadshows. Click into these locations for more details: TaurangaPalmerston North & New Plymouth.

We've completely booked out the Mini Twist and Pop Class and the Taste of Turquoise Cards classes. So we're now taking pre-orders for the Twist and Pop Mini Album Kit. We need to know how many kits to make up and to order enough product. We know it's going to be popular! There are still spaces available in Miss Besty's Portrait of a Lady Card class and my Mixed Media Clock class. Click here for our information relating to SENZ.

** UPDATE** TIM HOLTZ STAMP PLATFORM - arrives tomorrow!
This Platform is finally arriving instore tomorrow! Yay! Anyone who ordered from the first 2 shipments (ordered during March or April) will be receiving theirs. The third shipment is coming later in June and we only have a few more available. Don't delay in ordering today!

Just a note, the Platform has been caught up in a legal case brought against them by MISTI. 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 being able to get the original versions shipped out of Europe where the patent laws don't apply. But don't delay if you want the original version. They won't be available forever with all the features. Check out Tim's video showing how it works by clicking this linkOrder now!

We've had a couple of days off to do some exploring, and we've spent our time wandering around little forest trails and scenic attractions. There are loads of great waterfalls in Northland and last night we headed into the hot pools at Ngawha. That felt great. Today we're in the Hokianga and we're about to hug the biggest tree in NZ - the great Kauri Tane Matua. I'll take a piccie for sure!
