The lurgy is starting to retreat now, and I’m hoping to get back to making a mess in the next few days. Thank you to all those who sent me get well wishes. It’s much appreciated.

We’ve been hit by the lurgy, so I’m doing my best to keep up with orders from the store and all the forums we sponsor. Very sorry if I’ve been slow in getting back to you, hopefully normal service will resume shortly and I’ll get back to playing with inks and paints and all the things that make me happy.
This is a new double page in my large molekine note book. I never used to like pink, but for some reason I love it in my journals. It seems yellow has crept up on me as well. So, I’ve spent half an hour today, playing with colour, a quick and simple page with lots of white space. Quite like it.
As a scrapper, one of my favourite alphabet sticker sheets are the 12x12 Jenni Bowlin ones. I just love the style of the alphabet, so imagine how chuffed I was when I saw that there are stamps, in the same style! Yay!! Had to, I mean, just had to get them in for the shop.
At the same time as ordering the alphabet set, I had to get these Weekday stamps. So many “record your every waking moment” projects out there, you cannot tell me that these would not be well used and loved. You can find both sets online in the store now in the Jenni Bowlin Stamps section.
Whilst on the subject of stamps – yes we will be getting the Whisker Monster stamps in from Stampotique. Our order is already in we’re just waiting to find out when they will be shipping. We have restocks of your favourites and we’re adding some more designs to the range.
Right then, it’s windy and that means we need a beach walk today. Post office first though for all those scrummy stash orders from you fabulous people!
Oh dear, a month since I posted. A month that has absolutely flown by. Who said it could be January already…? I don’t remember agreeing to that. Not one spot of paint or ink to be seen either – that is not good.
Over Christmas we made a concerted effort to reorder the shop website and make thing easier to find. Some sections were just starting to take on a life of their own as we have expanded our product range so much since launching. It’s taken up a good chunk of Christmas and the New Year to get that done. I’m waiting for bundles of re-stocks to come in and yet more extensions to the product ranges we have, especially all the new darkroom Door goodies we’ll be stocking.
I’ve signed up for a few classes and prompts this year as well to help get those creative juices flowing, and I will be taking part in producing classes for the UKScrappers Art Journey. I have lots of things to prepare for that, and I have a Circle Journal which is now overdue! eek. Luckily the kids go back to school tomorrow so it will give me some peace and quite to finally get on with stuff. It’s hard to concentrate when you’re constantly hearing “Muuuuuuummmmm………” My head sinks and I give up and go sort out whatever the current squabble is about and/or threaten to remove toys/x-box play time/remove chocolate privileges. One of them usually does the trick. You’d think I have teenagers, not kids in Infants!
I know it’s annoying to read posts that are apologising for not posting, which in a way this is, but I will be back to normal (I’m not going to try and define that, my head hurts already) soon. For now I must get on with it, so I’ll wish you a slightly belated Happy New Year and hope to bring you something more interesting next week. In the meantime do stop by UKScrappers and check out all the new classes scheduled for 2012. It will be a creative year indeedy!
