You Are Invited....

Hello friends
Today an invitation....
I'm finally having a studio/shop launch 'do' this Saturday.
Yes, the invitation is sitting on my garden bench in the melting snow!
 So if anyone is out and about in Gravesend on Saturday please come along,
I will have a glass of something bubbly waiting!
For those who live far away I promise to post lots of photos and I will raise a glass to you all.

Also thrilled that Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine have done a little feature about
the studio/shop too - it can seen here.

Following yesterday's post there has been overwhelming request for me to feature the
Artisan X-plorer Machine in more detail.
I will most definitely do this very soon, a full step by step from removing it from the box
to seeing it in action.
Right now I'm already excited that it reminds me of a lovely looking handbag!

With crafty love dear friends.

Love the invitations you have made and I bet you get loads of people dropping in on Saturday. I know I would if I was nearer but I will be there the week after (cant wait)

Good morning Christine,
I am sat here sulking like a two year old! I Want To Come!!!!!
I suppose I am a little bit 'daft' but we have sat and watched it all come together , we have watched in awe as you have created something so very beautiful, I would just love to be there and see it be officially launched!
I will be sat here wishing you every good wish there could be, but I know your gorgeous little studio will be a roaring success because you are running it, I genuinely think that you are one if the kindest, most caring, most inspirational people that I have the pleasure of knowing! you are simply fabulous and so is your studio!
I am waiting with excitement for the info on the new Spellbinder machine.

Morning Christine, A day you have waited for a long time! Good Luck on your official opening day and you will be inundated with lovely crafty people. Sorry I cannot attend but will be thinking of you. Love your invitations. Not sure about the new machine, I think it looks a bit ugly personally, but I haven't seen it in the flesh yet. Hope it is made of stronger stuff as my poor GC's casing has just started to crumble and have had to invest in a new one! Will be looking forward to seeing what you think of it. Have a great time.

Look forward to learning about the new machine.
Have a nice day.

Oh how wonderful for you & not forgetting your fabulous supportive family, you can finally have an official opening launch. Unfortunately Saturday is the one day a week that I work so am unable to attend but I, like so many others I'm sure, wish you every success with the studio. Congratulations Christine, you worked so hard to get here & it just shows if you try hard enough you can fulfill your dreams. Have a wonderful day & look forward to seeing the photos.
