Ho Ho Ho!
I have got one last Big Shot here ready to go for Christmas at the discounted price of $130.

I'll be placing an order on Saturday for any last minute items you may like. Make sure you have plenty of supplies for all of that cardmaking/scrapbooking you will finally have time for (well, time after Christmas perhaps ...). If you need any orders placed over the holidays, I can get them shipped directly to your door ($5.95 postage applies for orders up to $120). Otherwise, hold off until Sale-a-Bration commences on 24 January - wahoo!

Gift Vouchers Available

On the subject of Christmas, don't forget I do Gift Vouchers! Forward this email to your other half to make sure you receive a very necessary gift that you can select yourself! Husbands, don't be shy - I don't bite!

Demonstration at the Botanical Gardens

I will be at the Botanical Gardens between 1.30pm and 3.30pm this Saturday 10 December demonstrating "Making Christmas Cards". Hmm, better make a start on that little project. There will also be a lady demonstrating origami and making Christmas ornaments with pieces of plants (sounds interesting).

Stamp Club

Stamp Club commences again in January with the first Stamp Club night being 7.30pm Wednesday 25 January. There are still 2 places available in the Stamp Club - so far we have Tina, Tammy, Helen and Kay.

Classes For 2012

Classes resume in the week commencing Monday 30 January.

I propose to have the following schedule for 2012:-

Mondays 10am - 2pm - Scrapbooking Class $20
Tuesdays 10am - 2pm - Cardmaking Class Usually $20
(I might need to put an extra daytime class on - perhaps Fridays 10am - 2pm)
Fridays 7.30pm - 10.30pm Cardmaking Class Usually $20

Could you please email me your preferred class times for 2012.

Flower-Making Class - 10am Saturday 4 February

There will also be an extra class on Saturday 4 February - Flower Making Class. This is a tutorial-style class. Bring along your cameras and take photos/film while I show you how to make about a dozen different flowers using paper and cardstock.

Class cost will be $20 with an optional kit containing the pieces for most of the flowers demonstrated for an extra $10. Class will be limited to 8 optional kits. I may schedule an extra class if this class fills quickly.


Thank you to all of my customers and students for your friendship throughout the year. I love my job and that's because of you (and my wonderfully supportive husband).

Have a very Merry Christmas filled with love and cheer. Enjoy your break and I'll see you next year.

Classes Next Week

Hi everyone

Just a reminder there is no class tonight (2 December) - we will be in sunny (?) metropolis Cooktown for a mini-break.

Next week:-

10am Tuesday 6 December - Starbook and Christmas Party!
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$30 for starbook materials - equipment and coffee provided

We will be making a starbook (it is like a booklet but it folds around to form a star - great for scrapbooking some photos). Theresa will be teaching this class. We then have a Christmas eats (please bring a small plate of something festive to share!) and ... Santa has left some presents under the tree - looks like he shops at Stampin' Up! too!!!

7.30pm Friday 9 December - Christmas Party
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
Please bring a small plate of something festive to share. Christmas presents under the tree! If you've got any small bits and pieces to finish off, bring them along but it really is about Christmas cheer tonight!

That's it for the year. Thank you all so much for a great crafting year. I have met some lovely ladies and have an incredible bunch of regulars that I just love dearly. Thank you for enriching my life.

*Hugs and Merry Christmas*
