So what did we do yesterday? Pressed loads of clocks, trimmed up all the subs offer minis for Craft Stamper Magazine, priced up new stock just in fgrom the USA, arranged Viva and kaiser paints onto the shelves for the show this weekend, priced up all the metal tools, packaged up some new moulds and tools available as individual units, oh and pressed more Ink and The Dog Rubber....busy busy busy....
We have a big box of subscription offers for the November Craft Stamper magazine going up to the Artisan show with us, so if you want to subscribe to craft stamper magazine, then you can get your hands on an Archie on the spot!! (see yesterday's post for images)
I am also teaching 2 classes at the Artisan show this weekend. One of them is an Archie book project (stamped textured metal, with Rum and Raisin papers onto an Arch shaped wood base (class S7 1:00pm Sunday), and the other is making a pair of earrings using ferro texture and Viva precious metal paints (class S4 2:15pm Saturday), and PaperArtsy Bijouterie findings. You can book for these by contacting the show organisers Meridienne themselves, or I think if there are places left, you can also book at the show on the day. Classes are only 5 pounds each and they are about 45 minutes in duration.
And now for the BIG announcement and REVEAL......
Here is Ding and Dong, the newest addition to the Squiggly Ink family. We shall be using some of these stamps at the ArtsyCrafts events coming up at the end of October, and they are a LOT of fun! And they will all be available at Artisan this weekend too.....how could you possibly resist????

So if you can't see it by looking at them, the concept on some of these plate is "build-a-bird" with the round clock faces being the tummy, there are a variety of "bird heads" and "tails" and of course "legs". Oh this is going to be so great.
You could make this with copper metal .....my little kiwi...
Or maybe this..bless him, Archie all grown up...bet you didn't know his legs were that long and lush! Oh err!
Here he is up close and personal...
Then there is Alfie the phoenix...his partner in crime
And Gertrude the majestic....who tries to keep them under control
So no doubt you get the idea about build-a-bird!!
SEE NOW YOU KNOW WHY I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THESE.
TOO MUCH FUN!
Please post a comment and LMK if you like my new babies. We love early feedback on stamps.
And I know it's just a little frustrating that they are not online in the shop yet, but they will be from next week, so practise among yourselves the art of patience for a few more days....you know you can, just spend the time planning your projects in your journals!
We have to get the Artisan show done and dusted first this weekend, and we are up to our eyes getting ready for that...I love going to shows, and this is the first we have done in about 4 years! I can't wait, it's going to be such a great weekend, we have a fantastic show offer, buy 5 stamps and get the 6th free...this applies to all stamps of the same size either minis or A6 plates!! Hope to see you there!
