Hi Everyone Karen Here !!

This is my first ever blog, so please forgive me if I am not as good at it as Max !!!
Just wanted to let you all know what has been happening since we closed down  :-(
I have been doing a course in Education Support, complete change of Career for me.
However I can't stay away from the papercraft industry.
I have just started selling papercraft and stamping supplies through Kaszazz. It is mainly Party Plan, but I will also  be holding workshops and crops for cardmaking and scrapbooking. The parties are great fun, not only are there great 'host' discounts, monthly specials and freebies, but everyone gets to participate in a FREE make and take. Check out their products at
If you would like to either look at a catalouge, book a party or are interested in a workshop please e mail me
Can't wait to hear back from you. If I don't I would like to thank you for all of your custom and support over the past 7 years and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hello all!!  Yes we are now in the week of 40% off absolutely EVERYTHING in the store. We still have tons of Cardstock, Stickers, Ribbons, Papers and embellishments at the unbelievable low price of 40% off.
Be quick as if we sell out this week, we will be closing the store earlier than 10th August.

a final note on Do Crafts - the latest issue is on its way into the store and should be here any day. These items are not included in our Sale as they are pre-ordered stock with set pricing so we are unable to offer any discounts.  We do have another store taking over our Do Crafts business so you will be able to still continue with your subscriptions and product lines locally. Details will be given to you of the new stockist when you collect your magazine this week.

Thanks Ladies,
Maxine & Karen.

Show News!!

Hello all, I am finally back from overseas and what a month we appear to have had here is Oz!!
Due to the fabulous weather, our last show in Pakenham was cancelled as the venue was commandeered by the SES as accomodation for any people displaced by flooding in the Koowerup area, so now the show has been re-scheduled for this weekend Saturday and Sunday 7th and 8th July at the Cardinia Cultural Centre, Lakeside Drive, Pakenham.
This show was a great success last year and we had lots of new traders exhibiting with lots of new goodies.
We will be there with some gorgeous new products and clearing out lots of old ones too, so come along and grab a bargain.
Saturday opening hours are 9.30am until 4.30pm and Sunday's opening hours are 10am to 4pm.
I will be there in all my jetlagged glory, along with my merry band of helpers (who I haven't actually asked
yet but I am sure they will help me out if I ask reaaaallllly nicely!!)
Hope to see you all this weekend,
