Everything must Go!

Hi... what a year!

It's been a long time since I last posted anything, 2010 has certainly been a tough one and it is with great sadness that I have decided that Whoops-a-Daisy will cease to trade online on Wednesday 30th June.
Until then everything is discounted by 50% so grab yourself a bargain!

There will one more day we will trade after that the online shop closes and that is via the Shop (Bristol Hill, Shotley Gate) and that is Saturday 10th July 2010 from 10am to 4pm and again everything will be discounted by 50%, hope to see you there.

2010 Retreat...

It's been a while but Christmas is looming just round the corner and I have been frantically making presents, cards and....... organising the 2010 retreat day, Sunday 21st March 2010. 10.30am to 4.30pm. With a morning workshop based around the Ranger products and an afternoon Layout workshop being designed and hopefully taught by a guest teacher.

This time we have all of the upstairs of the shipwreck so can accomodate more people and give us the seperate 'classroom' area.

It's so exciting...and whats even better is we have been able to keep the £10.00 charge, there will be a small charge for the workshop and class.

Cardmaking and Scrapbooking Extravaganza

We had a great day at Needham Market Community Centre at the 2009 Cardmaking and Scrapbooking extravaganza.. it was a great day and it was wonderful to share it with Bob (thank you!)... Thank you also to everyone who stopped by our stand for a chat, to watch the demo's or just see what we do.
Sadly we were a little short on time to take pics...

I hope that alot of you can make it to the Retreat day on 8th November, 10.30 kick off and close at 4.30pm so a perfect amount of time to get those cards made, or make Crimbo pressies ( like I will!...) finish layouts or just come and see what we do, brilliant value with a Sandwich lunch included.

Christmas is just round the corner!

I really cannot believe that 2009 is going so quickly... Christmas stock is in and being added to the website and I've started to move things around in the shop to make way for the new goodies... I love the new fancy pants Christmas Magic collection, it's just so pretty and I cant wait to get some projects posted using it...

New Christmas card classes will be published over the coming week along with the album classes I have been working on for the past few weeks.

Retreat... it's getting closer!

I am still trying to organise the retreat for oct/nov... looking like november now because October is looking pretty hectic as I have a stand at the Cardmaking and Scrapbooking extravaganza in suffolk on the 18th... drop me an email for more details and I'll email you the flyer. I am still working on it but hoping to demo the Silhouette SD and create some great make and takes!!..

The classes have slowed down over the past couple of weeks because of hols etc but dont worry, the will be back in full swing during september.

Our Sale starts on Sept 2nd to make some room for our Christmas stock which is winging it's way to us... some 2008 christmas stock will be included in the sale so do pop by. The sale will also include classes.

Watch this space for our bag and tag, layout and album in a tin classes.. not to be missed :-)

I've not had much time to create but we are taking the kayak out for a quick break next week so I will have loads of pics needing scrapping and I am also hoping to take a look around some digital options.. not my traditional approach but I think it's about time I was a little more open minded!.. holidays are great for insiration :-)

I cant wait to get back into the swing of it after the six and a half summer hols... take a break and pop along to our sept crop, 6.30 on Friday 4th Sept.

First Crop

We had our first Whoops-a-Daisy crop last night and it was excellent fun and although small we had a great laugh sharing crafting tips, scrapping and chatting for 3hrs!..

I was hoping to plan a workshop retreat/day at the shipwreck (our local ex old navy jaunt which has huge rooms for hire so we could cater for loads) but I think that people would get alot more out of a crop.. certainly more opportunity for chat and a really good laugh and get together.

I will post a date soon but it will be in October because of holidays etc... watch this space!..

Today see's the shop open in this glorious weather and alot more goodies being added to the website as I have the new Dotted swiss Scalloped papers in stock, along with some of the new bazzill Glazed cardstock (the Crimbo ones are gorgeous so grab them while you can because they will sell really quickly!!!).. have the new bloom papers in stock as well!..
