Playtime and Wishes!

Hello friends

Well, I really have teased you about the next Charity Kit!
I promise you will not have to wait too long for the big reveal.
I've got some finishing to do, typing of instructions and possibly a video
and then you will know everything!

I think I am swayed with regard stocking a few Pom Pom Makers so will
keep you posted on those.  Instructions to create the Heart Pom Pom Maker was supposed to
be today but I got a little sidetracked by some visitors yesterday...

Make A Wish Foundation came to visit Elliott to see if he would like a wish granted!
The Royal Marsden put Elliott's name forward and we are delighted that
he has been considered.  Elliott was asked to think of what he would really like to do and
my boy was very modest in his wish and asked if he could go to.....Bristol!
Now I know Bristol is a lovely place (Carole Z will agree) but you can imagine I was
a little surprised.  But there is a good reason for it being Bristol, apparently some
serious computer geeky game players who produce lots of You Tube videos
have set up a company there and Elliott's wish is to meet them.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that they will agree and if they do,
we're heading off to Bristol!
More classes have been uploaded to the website - it is worth mentioning that if you hover
over the Classes tab it will have a drop down menu showing the months - they are more
organised and easier to view that way.
One of the new classes is something that I've been wanting to do for ages -
Spellbinders® Playtime!
It is literally playing with the dies, trying out different techniques and experimenting.
The class is less structured - you can make cards, tags, whatever takes your fancy.
And...cardstock, tags and patterned paper is supplied!  
Perfect if you know you've got some birthdays/anniversaries etc looming.
You just bring along a basic crafting kit and adhesive.

And...talking of adhesive I finally have some of the new 3D Designer Shapes in stock.
I love these and have used the 3D Foam Stars here...
 3D Foam Pennants here... (and the gorgeous Lace Hearts)
3D Foam Frames here..
and 3D Foam Leaves here...
Told you I like them! :)

Take care friends -
stop by tomorrow because you know what it is....!

Love all of the projects they are lovely. Spellbinders playtime sound fun.
Hope you do nit have too much trouble getting to work today, what with the weather and the tube strike.

My wish is that Elliott gets his wish! I have to admit that I'll never be able to share a passion for all things gaming, but I know there's a lot more to it than there seems and you have to be pretty smart to write all that techy stuff. So good luck Elliott.
The 3D foam shapes are a great idea and the lacy hearts have made their way on to my 'wanted' list.
