The merry merry month of May!

May already! Can't believe I ran the first of my Thru' the Year classes for the second quarter two days ago. April, May and June double page layouts in two and a half hours! Almost speed scrapping.

Thank goodness the bank holidays are done with for a few weeks at least. I've been waking up with no idea what day it is. I was so glad to get back to normal. Although the shop is open Sundays and bank holidays anyway. We did, however decide to close for the Royal Wedding so that we could take a three day break. And how glad I was to be able to watch that spectacle. Everything was so perfect but all I could think was what an anticlimax there must have been after the big day following the months of prep and such a fairytale day. Wonder if Catherine has started on her wedding scrapbook yet.

The caravan park at Lady Heyes opens in the next month so if you have a tourer, come stay and visit Crab Apple Crafts for a class or two. As our photographic studio has opened too you could have a photoshoot at the same time!

Our June workshop schedule has just been uploaded to the website and there are a few classes I would like to mention. We have decided to run a class called Cricut 101 to help all those of you who have hardly taken your cricut out of it's box let alone made good use of it. You will need to bring your machine with you and we will cover everything to get you using it, including auto fill, flip, mix and match, fit to page etc.

Also Nige is getting out the iron again and combining wax with Lindsay Masons new fairy stamps to produce fairy fantasy cards. The new Stay n Play kit uses a new Bo Bunny range called Gabrielle. Eight cards and envelopes

The samples are on the website. Anyway go have a look as there is plenty more on there including our summer coffee morning dates where we will be having a sale of ex workshop/demo stamps.

I feel a move around in the shop coming on! How to tell Nige.

Have a lovely crafting weekend and happy national scrapbooking day for today!

  1. I must take that Cricut class!

    I hope the Opening of the caravan park means the potholes are getting sorted at Lady Heyes. I think there will be new addictions starting when caravanners visit Crabapple. Maybe there should be a purse health warning on the gate?



    PS: Those chocolate sundaes look delish.

  2. Hi sheilagh cricut class Is half full so get booked on. Imagine what the insides of your caravan would look like after a lap of lady heyes car park! Xx
