One Man and his Artisan! Save the Date and lots more...!

Hello friends
That would actually be: One Man and his Artisan..X-plorerMachine !!
Mitchell espied my lovely Artisan machine and he has now craft-napped it!
He's really in the swing of this die-cutting business, he even admitted
he is enjoying it more than working on the new website! 
I'm thinking I will have to invest in another Artisan X-plorer as I find it so handy,
 it fits in my bag as I tend to bring it home in the evenings just in case I need to 
die cut in the middle of the you do! 
Mitchell is working on more kits - two batches have been sent out and more
going out today.  

Also more kits are being prepared for the shop event which is
going to be taking place on 
Saturday 20 July 2013
I will be posting a proper invitation with all the details soon but in the meantime 
if you live locally please save the date.

Now something new and crafty! 
A project of mine has just appeared on the Crafty Power Blog.
Because of everything that has happened recently I had to take a little break
but I'm back with a clean and simple project that beautifully highlights 
If you have a moment I always appreciate a comment being left on their blog.

Finally, a nice surprise yesterday.  I received an email from Sainsbury's Bank
saying that they had featured my blog on their Money Matters website.
They have referred to me as a 'Scrapbooking sensation' - major head swelling moment!
I had no idea so it truly was a surprise.  You can read more here and see lots of 
other really interesting blogs too.

Right I think that's today's news. 

Oh yes..I was asked if I would be doing more kits, possibly monthly?
The answer is ...yes - it is all in the pipeline.  My little book of notes is 
now a big book of essays!  There are plans to have many kits and more classes -
once everything settles back down to a pattern at home it will be craft overdrive! :)

Also, the winner of the Graduated Dots M-Bossabilities Folder will be announced 
tomorrow so please stop by.  
I will speak with Bella regarding picking out a winner, she is a bit of a scruff monster 
at the moment - I forgot her hairdresser's appointment yesterday - 
I don't normally forget appointments - 
I think it must have been the euphoria of being called a 'scrapbooking sensation'!!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine,
Mitchell seems to have taken to this crafting lark like a good 'un. Well done him.
No wonder that you forgot the appointment for Bella with all that's been going on at yours! I'm amazed at your resilience (and that goes for Elliott and Mitchell as well).
Congratulations on your "Scrapbook Sensation".
Best wishes

Loving your card and box and Mitchel and his Artisan look wonderful, a very tempting machine I have to say! I also wanted to say a quick thank you to both you and Mitchel for getting my recent order out to me so quickly and for the extras popped into the packet. Thank you!!

Morning Christine, Firstly, Congratulations on your accolade from Sainsburys Money Matters - Scrapbooking Sensation, is a brilliant description for you.
Secondly, Mitchell knows a good thing when he see's it - I saw the Artisan being demo'd at my last craft show and was really considering it, albeit that I already own 5 die-cutting machines ha ha, but it was so lovely, I may get one at the next show.
Thirdly, Thank You, I received my email with Raffle Tickets yesterday.
Fourthly, loving the card and gift box.
It is no wonder you missed Bella's hairdresser appointment, with all you have going on in your lift at present, you can always put ribbons in Bella's hair ha ha.
Huge hugs to you all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Me again, Sorry, that should say 'life' not 'lift' ha ha xx
