California Here I Come - NOT!

Well I should have been going - hotel picked, flights found, and, most importantly, Disney tickets sorted! But you know, life gets in the way and, after one thing and another, I had to put away my sunglasses for another six months and put another layer on. I guess CHA just wasn't meant to be this winter. My mum and dad both decided to have 'turn of the year' ops and Boo, our gentle giant is struggling with her hip dysphasia. Have to content myself with memories of last time we went.

But I am not down - we have two trade fairs here in February so I am already planning our visits there (and a workshop with the man himself - Timmy not Nigey- but having trouble fitting that in - grrrrr!) I am already getting plenty of emails of new 'stuff' that will be out so watch this space. Speaking of new things these beauties should be here in a few days. They are a limited edition set.

We had a great workshop preview day last Saturday. It was good to see and chat with so many of you - another busy, buzzy day! The star of the day was definitely Parchment Craft. I thought I would gauge the current interest in this beautiful craft and schedule a class in March. That class is fully booked! Another pleasant surprise was the interest in Creative Wax Painting (Encaustic Art) - that class is two thirds full! Your being inspired inspired us.

As regards the burning issue that so many of you ask me about - all I can say is that lines of communication are still open and you will be the first to know if I have any news. Have a great weekend! (Guess where I am)
