And another winner!

Hello friends

Today announcing the winner of the We Love Adhesive Kit,
(I'm getting organised before I go away!)
Congratulations to...... VALERIE HARRISON
I have your address Valerie so I will make sure the kit gets sent out to you today.

I said a final goodbye to the shop yesterday, it looked very stark and empty when I walked
away and locked the door.

I am so grateful I have my lovely cabin
otherwise it could have been a whole lot more emotional!
I have lots of fond memories of my time in the shop and the fun classes that were held there.
Truly grateful to all the friends I have made.
I'm now focusing and embracing my next opportunity

Back in my cabin yesterday afternoon I made a start on the gifts that I am
taking out to Arizona.  I'm not going to show you the complete project just yet -
but here is a little tease!

Foliage is featured along with jingle bells and let's just say the item wrapped up is
festive and calorific!

Take care friends and stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.

Don't look back with sadness, but forward with great excitement. Hope and chances is exactly what your shop venture has led you to, grab with both hands and enjoy the ride!

Hi Christine. Ah, the shop looks so empty but as my husband used to say Onwards and Upwards. Has the shop got a new owner? If so is it still to be a Craft Shop?
Very exciting gift you're making.
Congratulations to Valerie- I thought for one moment it was me!!
Love Val in Spain x

Sad looking at the empty shop but as you say-what a new beginning?! The craft cabin & your trip to Spellbinders HQ. Your sneak peak looks interesting.

Morning Christine, I know how hard it is to walk away from a shop - I had to do it after 16 years, and it was so hard. I hadn't planned to close it, but was forced due to a pending divorce and moving away.

Focus on your cabin now, and I really hope this is the right thing for you!

Janice said...

Morning Christine
It must have been a tough day for you yesterday, but you have so many photos and happy memories to keep in your heart, and so many new ones now to look forward to!
Exciting times 👍
Congratulations to Valerie.

Hi Christine, how sad about your shop but like you say onwards and upwards and you have LOTS to look forward to.
You are still a tease aren't you? Anyway I think we all have a good idea what the pressies might be. They will be wonderful and well received I am sure. By the way I just love the coloured bells.
Have a lovely day.

Your lovely shop looks sad without you, your guests and 'equipment'. It seems like no time at all since it opened, but you achieved so much. Now it seems you're going to be busier than ever with Spellbinders and I'll be following you all the way! I hope you'll still get plenty of time in you cabin. Congratulations to Valerie.

Hello Christine
Your little shop did look very sad but still very beautiful. The new tenants are going to inherit a beautiful shop with a lovely feel to it. As you say life has to move on and what a fantastic crafty space you now have.
Your sneaky peak looks interesting. Can't wait to see more.
Congratulations to Valerie.
Enjoy the rest of your day
