Christmas past . . . New Year Cravings

Well .. Christmas has almost gone - I hope you all had a good one.  We did although I did not enjoy the 300 mile drive to Poole or the drive back mainly through fog.  Still there is much to look forward to - New Year which I hope will be good to you all. 

I'm looking forward now to the Stitches show in February at Birmingham. This is the trade show where we get to see all the goodies and new products due out in 2011 which will satisfy our crafting cravings.

Happy New Year to you ALL

Sandra, Paul and staff at Card Craft UK

Christmas is coming .....

Hi all

'Weather' or not you have been snowed in I hope you have all finished or well on the way with your Christmas cards - as I have (NOT).  I have done about 50 so still quite a lot to do, best get on with it as it will be here sooner rather than later.

I have had a very productive day today with something to look forward to next year - - I have booked two more 'free' demos in the shop with the very inventive, inspirational Lindsay Mason!.  The first one on Saturday 9th April and the second one on Saturday 1st October. These demos are the first of many for next year as negotiations are under way.

If your struggling for presi's for 'crafty' friends don't forget CardCraft UK gift vouchers.

Hope your coping and enjoying the snow.

Take care

Weather or not

Hi all

Just thought I'd let you know that we've just received some new embossing folders from Creative Expressions that are very popular, they are a larger size than the standard Cuttlebug and Kars embossing folders and as it so cold and horrible out there I thought I would just 'have a play'.  To view them click the Creative Expressions link in the left hand menu at

Also due any day new embossing folders from Crafts Too which are rather nice - can't wait to get my hands on these.  Hope they will be here for the weekend so I can play on Sunday although I really must start my christmas shopping.  I am one step ahead this year having done quite a lot of my cards as I left it far too late last year and didn't start them until well into December.  Tut tut I hear you say.

Bye for now "crafting calling"

Well we made a start...

I think that is enough for my first attempt! At least I have the start of the structure of our Blog,

I even managed to get details in for our last Free Demo before Christmas. Why did I not do this sooner? there have been so many demo's in the shop during the last few months. I guess we all have to start somewhere, I can't wait to get the start of the Blog complete then get down to some serious crafting.

Here goes!!!

Well here we go - we have a Blog at last!

Be gentle with me as I'm  not sure what to do, I don't know whether to Blog in or Blog off!

I guess it will be a laugh
