Watching time!

I should be working, designing classes etc but what do I do.... make a clock!...

I had such a great time making it I thought I would share it.
Using DCWV Once upon a time papers, I normally struggle with using stacks but not this one!! it is so pretty, glittery, mythical and just so gorgeous.. the papers include fairies, dragons, scrolls, treasure maps and much more... I just know that I will be able to use all the papers. Anyway, I used the Happily Ever after paper from the stack, some BoBunny rubons on top of Lettuce Adirondack Dabber (sanded to make it look a little aged of course!)...

Anyway... back to the class prep!... thanks for stopping by :-)

New Class

Back again!.. I cant keep out of the shop even when it's not open!!! Been crafting away and have published a new class that will run twice to make sure that everyone who wants to can attend. Here's the sneak peek.... I've created this album as a Jacobs ladder album which is so much fun to make and it's really effective!.. The kids were amused for ages :-)
This one is in the catalogue already so pop along to whoopsadaisy.biz and go into 'classes'
I also have loads more MME, fancy pants and the new Bazzill Glazed paper and Scalloped dotted swiss on back order so watch this space!

It's over!!!

What a day... it's been great, loads of people popping in and so many messages wishing well... I cannot thank people enough for the support they have shown me on my first day. It has been a great day and one that has eased my concerns over starting my new journey.
Had fun with the kids, letting them lose with glitter and stamps when I had a quiet moment, they were good and it's lovely to see their imagination working, hopefully 2 more potential scrappers/crafters!
I can't wait to get back in the shop tomorrow... I can see myself being in there everyday instead of the planned 4!

Have got some goodies coming into the shop over the next couple of weeks so I will have to move things around and I have already commissioned a new slatwall stand (thank you Bob!) so that I can put more of my papers on display so watch this space!

Bob took these pic's this morning... just before opening :-)

Opening today!

Count down has started, we open in less than an hour and as nervous as I am I am so, soo excited! .... Unfortunately we didnt have chance to take any pics to add to the blog but Bob is hoping to get a few action shots today! They will be pucblished over the weekend and I'll be back later to say how it all went :-)

Pic of the shop

We've been working hard on the shop this week ready for Saturday and as tough as it's been we are nearly there and I cant wait for Saturday to arrive!!..

Here is the pic of the inside of the shop for a bit of a sneaky peek before the opening day. Sadly I cant get a picture of the outside because of the delightful British weather we seem to be experiencing at the moment, when it dries up I will get out there and get snapping.
Better get back to work....
