Some Exciting News!

Well I hope you are all ready for Christmas… presents wrapped, food at the ready, extra batteries for your remotes!!!! Not long to go now and little ones (and big ones!) will be getting very excited about Santa coming!

I usually dread that time just after Christmas when all the decorations come down! and I always leave up some Fairy Lights to brighten up the evenings. 

But… in a way I can't wait for 2012, I think it's gonna be a great Crafting Year. Yes, sadly some Challenges and Shops have closed this last year, which I hate to see. But as the saying goes … as one door closes… another one opens….

I have been keeping secret some exciting news and I am so glad to be able to now share it with you! Teresa over at My Crafty Heart is opening a new Online Papercrafting Store which will go live online on Saturday 14th January 2012!!!! The shop will sell lots of the goodies that we all know and love and more besides because Teresa herself is designing and selling some new gorgeous digital images

And .... I was SO excited when Teresa asked me to be on the Design Team and I am really looking forward to working with her and my other Teamies who are Vicky, Vicky, Donna, Ira and Mel. Just after Christmas we will be giving you all a sneak peak of what's coming up, so do watch this space. Her images are awesome - you will love them!

The Online store will be called My Crafty Heart and here is just a taste of what they will have in store... Designer Papers from Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, Prima, Authentique, Kaisercraft and more... Beautiful Flowers and Embellishments from Prima, Jenny Bowlin, Kaisercraft and Hero Arts to name a few, Inks and Glitters from Ranger & Tim Holtz, Dies from Memory Box, plus they will also have some wonderful and unusual Charms....

I hope you are as excited as I am !!!! and please check back often for more details and previews.... I can't wait....  and I'm sure you'll join with me in wishing Teresa every success in her new and exciting venture!!

I can't believe where today has gone. The family have been out last minute shopping and so I put some ready made sausage rolls in the oven. Simple task you would think. It said 10 minutes Gas Mark 6. Well I completely forgot about them!!!! for 30 minutes!!! When I looked they were cooked to perfection? LOL. Our oven is faulty and everything takes longer which is just as well. Really worried about my memory!! 

I hope you are all ready for Christmas now. I know some of you have come down with colds, so if you are unwell I hope you get better very soon!!

Take Care
and Have a very Happy Christmas & New Year!
Love n Hugs!
Sue xx

Alessandra said...

ha ha ha, I am roaring with laughter about the sausage story, Sue!! It happens to me ALL the time, I keep forgetting what I've put in the oven... so glad the fire brigade never had to come LOL!
Sue, it's soooo cool to hear that you've been chosen for the DT with these other talented ladies. You so deserve it! I certainly will check out her new store and surely will spend loads of money there...
Have a wonderful Christmas, Sweetie... oh...and we should swap addresses and b-days, what do you think?
Oh, even better idea besides swapping addresses: I come to live in England :o)))) so many of you nice ladies live there! Lets win the lottery and we can buy an old castle, every one has her own rooms, and then we could have a ball-room for craft room, every one has her own corner with shelves and we have a huge table in the middle where we all sit and craft and chat away...oh, what a wonderful vision :o) LOL... I am blabla-ing... I better go...
Big hug, Alessandra
