There has been such a lot happening since I last posted. I do love September. Almost feels like it should be the start of the new year. We have had a great month in the shop with coffee morning and our preview afternoon at the start and then most recently, this last weekend, our 12th birthday at Lady Heyes, we had a great demo day with multiple demonstrators. It was so successful we are planning our next for the first weekend in March 2012. (We also have regular demo days with just one demonstrator - both Esther from Kars and Clare from Molly Blooms will be visiting us in October).
Most of you will know the other major thing to happen in the Merry household is the arrival of Cubby, pint sized but a major pain in the neck. I never realised that the smaller the puppy the bigger the scrapes he can get into. Still, he has brought such a lot of pleasure in the past ten days that we think we will keep him.
Debi and I are working on projects for the November retreat and they are coming along rather nicely. Retreat bookings for next years 3 retreats will open next Wednesday so if you want to come along get ready for that!
Could write a book sized post as I feel such a lot has happened this month - but I won't. If you want to really stay up to date with what is happening at Crab Apple Crafts join us on Facebook. All the cards shown are from Lindsay Masons demo last Saturday.
And yes, finally, summer has arrived and I plan to enjoy it in all it's fullness - with a full line of washing out. Oh the pleasures of seeing that!
Fun Fall crafting to you all! Off to teach my last Jul/Aug/Sept Thru the Year scrapbook class to 16 lovely ladies this morning.
Love Rosemary (and Cubby who is biting my hand as I type).
