Hello - I have some BIG news (well it's big for me anyway!) On Thursday, we managed to secure a precious pre-order for the entire range of Copic Ciao markers!! These things are like hens teeth in Australia and the US demand is outstripping supply - so after ourselves and a few Queenslanders bending a reps ear - they've decided to bring the full range in for all the Aussie papercrafters out there - directly from Japan! Hooray!!! (Sad I know, but it doesn't take much to make me happy these days - every day I breathe is a bonus). The marvel of these fabulous things is that they are a permanent, refillable pen which stampers adore and they have replaceable nibs. Whereas other markers go muddy when you layer the colours - these don't! You can colour a yellow over a red and the yellow stays prevalent. Love it!!! We are expecting shipment around October and we have the whole 144 colours on their way. Web-Genie Kirsty is already organising a great class to show you what these babies can do - can't wait! She's now known as Web-Genie Copic Queen Kirsty!! Talk soon, love Max.

New Stuff!!

Hello, sorry it's been a while but we've been remarkably busy!!! Where are all the card challenge entries?? It's easy and you've gotta be in it to win it - we're giving away FREE stuff for the winner. You can send me an e-mail and vote for your favourites !! It's too hard for us to choose the winner!

All the new stock we ordered has all come in at once!! I've been online tonight buying new shop fittings to hang it all up on - we've run out of room again. A few new items we have include a new range of Thickers - including the new puffy vinyl and the glittered lullaby range, the BRAND NEW Cuttlebug embossing folders and cut and emboss kits, Websters Pages papers, more photo storage boxes, 12" magazine files and more albums, a new range of Reminisce papers in usable designs with card stock stickers to match and a huge range of over 30 papers that came in today but I forgot my camera this morning so I'll have to load those up at the weekend.I've been trying to upload some pictures tonight but my computer is going backwards so I'll try again tomorrow - they are all in the new products section of the gallery so please take a look!

The September classes will all be loaded up soon and we have so many new classes - it's not funny!! We've organised the school holiday classes already with 4 fab projects to keep your crafting proteges out of trouble and they are CHEAP entertainment at around $15 per session.

I'm going to give up now and start sewing - I have 21 outfits for my 6 year old's school concert to make - they are doing the "One Horned, One Eyed Purple Flying People Eater or something like that?????????" My creative brain has been mildly tested to explosion point on that one - if anyone has ANY idea what one looks like - could they please let me know? My 9 year old and her mates have decided to put on a pre-concert entertainment package and want to gyrate around the stage to "Whats new Pussycat" by Tom Jones so no doubt I will be running up a few cats costumes too in my spare(!!) time - the concert is on 1st September HELP ME - Maxine.
