Hi!! I guess by now you all know about us Retiring from working life and this will mean closing down our lovely shop here in Wantage and our website of course.
We have had such a fabulous time, meeting so many people, travelling about the country and the US on a few occasions, its been a ball.
As part of the closing process we need to shift our stock of course, so we have started to feature ranges for clearance online and in store. We are adding things as fast as we can so make sure you keep the web bookmarked or like us on facebook as we are updating daily on there too.
We are going to have some open dates too, Sunday March 22nd, the shop will be open with some fabulous deals in store
And again Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Monday (we are having Sunday off) we will be open for some outstanding deals...............may even be a biscuit involved.
I am going to try to keep the blog updated too.............
Please support us in this major life decision and we look forward to maybe seeing many of you in store too.

Wow what some awesome weather we are having right now, spending lots of time outdoors making the patio look pretty with plants and furniture at the minute. So when Jo sent me this little sneak peek of the workshop at the end of July I booked myself on poste haste.
We are doing Bunting, for the garden!! Well you don't have to put it in the garden of course but how pretty would this look along your fence?Using stencils, limited edition paints, inks and stamps we are going to create a three piece banner during the workshop but you can buy the extra banner pieces to do more at home.........we are selling them singularly.
I hope you can make it.............BOOK HERE

Such a bad blogger ..........however, I have been busy..............
and I have news!!
I am going to be a Nanny again, new baby due Christmas Day, how very exciting is that.
New magazines for the summer just arrived, Art Journaling, Somerset Life, Somerset Studio and Stampers Sampler are all now online and in store............Stampers Sampler is featuring some lovely Stampotique artwork from Corrie Herriman, really worth a look.
and we have just had a delivery of Gelli Plates, these have been unavailable for absolutely ages due to a distribution issue but they are now back and we also received the Round 8" one, great fun.
Got Washi Tape? Is it all over the desk and draws and you can never find one when you need it?
I now have the perfect answer. These screw closure rings are large, very large in fact, they take up to 15 roll of tape (depends on the width of the tapes) and once on there, just leave them. You can dispense from the ring, tote about to crops and workshops and keep track on them all.
The rings are just £2.99 each BUT if you like to store by style or you have more Washi than you are willing to admit to (who me?) then you can get a great deal set of FOUR rings for just £10.99.
I got started on mine but will definitely need more than one ring!
They don't come with tape by the way, that's mine LOL
You can use them to store all sorts of stuff too like ribbons. That flat side is a great little carry handle, just like a handbag :) (its a girl thing I am told).
Anyhow, sorry to have been AWOL for a bit but will try harder, promise.
