Reopening Update

I am going to be having a small amount of stock in the shop at some point tomorrow.

I had hoped to have a lot more but I am still waiting for some supplies. 

Tomorrow is also the launch of the new challenges and I want to leave the focus on that hence me telling you about the shop today.

So what is there going to be? - Well a bit of allsorts really.  I love knitting and sewing and have discovered crochet recently and I have a massive stash of yarn and fabric so there will be some handmade flowers but they will be mixed in with manufactured ones aswell so you get a good mix.  The first few lots are experimental and as such will be priced to reflect that.  I am going to maybe have them themed by colour, season etc.  Eventually I hope to bring you handmade accessories (ipod socks, headbands, hair clips etc etc etc). My mind is full of ideas but unfortunately time hasn't been my best friend since I decided to reopen.  I will take it one step at a time though and hopefully after another few weeks I will have more for you.

Here is a sneek peek at some of the things I have been working on

A Bit Of News

I am hoping to reopen the shop on 1st April to coincide with the first challenge on here. 

The idea only came to me last week for what I am going to sell and I have been working like crazy to get some stock ready.  I have come up against a few minor set backs in the form of supply as it is a while since I purchased from the wholesaler and my account had been closed but I think that is now sorted out and hopefully I will have a small selection of flowers for you on 1st April and no it isn't an April fool before anybody asks. It just seemed like an ideal date to reopen since the challenges are restarting on that date.

More details to follow soon.

Hello from Tiffany!

Hello! Just wanted to pop by and introduce myself. I'm Tiffany, another of the new Design Team Members here!  I love serving on Design Teams as it encourages me to use new products, try new challenges, make new friends and step up my work. Here's one of my latest layouts, I tend to be sort of artsy, LOVE office-inspired papers, and as my son recently commented, "I always have to make my layouts messy"...not sure if he meant this as a good thing or not!?!? So excited to get creative with you on April 1st! =) Tiffany
