Ready and Waiting!

Well it's two more sleeps till our Scrapcamp and we are raring to go. Last minute preparations are done and we are ready and waiting - almost! I do hope the sun shines at least a little so that we can enjoy the wonderful views from our crop room and take our wine/coffee onto the patio!

As well as using gorgeous new papers on some of our scrapcamp classes we have some other great new ranges that have just arrived in the shop. We have the delightful Ladies Diary from G45 and this is hot, hot, hot off the press ( this only arrived today). Also we have new mini moments ranges from Echo park such as Homemade and Woof, Beautiful Moments from Carta Bella, Lakehouse and Magnolia Grove from Kaisercraft, Country Garden and Little Miss from Bo Bunny, and Amy Tangerine from American Crafts. Below is Ladies Diary and Lakehouse.

We are uber excited to have Pan Pastels in stock and, ...... drumroll, the Studio 12 Picknix CD from Polkadoodles that I have been airing on Create & Craft recently, as well as three of their other most popular CD's. What is even better is that I have in my possession all the design team samples for Studio 12 to show what can be done with it and it is still at the low, low price of £9.99 (RRP £17.99). The photo below shows the Sundae of Seasons CD.

This past weekend saw the arrival of the latest Docrafts essentials products and going like hotcakes has been the Happy Days range. Debi and I think it is their best range to date. Some of the items sold out on the first day and I have reordered them hopefully to be here in time for the coming weekend. Just think 'the fonz'!

The past few days have been more manic than usual with two shows at Create and Craft yesterday (in the studio for 6am) and at the weekend was the variety show I have been rehearsing for for the past two months. What a fantastic weekend. I love nothing more than being able to share my passion for performing with both Joel and Georgia. Although the fourteen costume changes had me on my knees!

We arrived home from Peterborough at 6pm last evening and after tea (which thankfully Joel had made and had waiting for us) I slept from 7pm until 6am this morning when Boo rudely awakened me as she needed some company. Believe me it's hard to ignore a dog that size! (The photo below is of Teddy in the bathroom convinced that Huey, Joel's bearded dragon, is hiding in the towel basket).

So, as the song goes, 'grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worries on the door mat', head on over here and let's have some quality scrapping 'me' time this weekend with like minded peeps and soon-to-be friends. (The second half of that sentence obviously wasn't from a song!)

Scrappy hugs,

Rosemary x

Ps (Teatime tonight in the Merry household. Georgia- "Are you doing a big wash before we go away? Joel and I have noticed you haven't been up to scratch with the washing just lately and things have been in the washing basket a lot longer than usual." Rosemary- "I apologise most sincerely for failing as a mother and will mend my slovenly ways immediately". NO I DID NOT SAY THAT! But what I did say is not printable.)
