I must confess. I have been keeping my head down and bum up!
In the last 3 weeks we have had 3 birthdays in this house: Hugo, me and Courtney. All the retail shopping required to get pressies, have celebratory meals out and parties and BBQ's has filled my catering and entertaining obligations for the rest of the year! I am shattered from socialising and entertaining so many kids.
The most scarey was Courtney turning 16 - we very bravely decided to do one of those evening parties in the back garden where 16 year olds think they are 20 somethings. To be fair the 30 kids that turned up were wonderful, polite, and we breathed a sigh of relief when they all left at midnight! No dramas. Yay. Think she thinks that she can now have one every fortnight! oh no she won't!!!
Ella turns 14 in a couple of weeks, and the kids will be back at school soon. Whew. I need a holiday!
So what's new in the shop? Hot Pick 1009 ships out to retailers next week. We are madly pressing them today so Lin has some for Stevenage this weekend.
Here's how it looks, HP1009:
And I've been cooking this for a while. It's a Hot Pick Xtra, and all the flowers fit the Dies 1, 2&3. Lin will have this at Stevenage in limited numbers too. I LOVE it!!! HPXT02
Both will be going online in the PaperArtsy shop at the end of this month.
Look out for our stunning advert in the next Craft Stamper magazine to get free shipping on these stamps (hint: you won't miss it) LOL
