It's a whole New Year!

Hello friends

I hope you are having a good start to the New Year.
We had a very quiet New Year's Eve at home,
well apart from the fireworks which were super loud.
 Thankfully all our pets were indoors and not phased.

So what is happening in 2019?
Well I'm pleased to say there will be workshops.
I'm firming up dates with various shops.
These will be posted on the Spellbinders on Tour page,
here on the blog so please check back soon
plus on social media.

The new website - yes it is coming.
We are uploading the products right now and hope to 
launch soon, very proud of Elliott who has built it.
The original website will go down for a short time 
but I will give you plenty of notice.

Here's a sneak peek of the homepage banner which is cleaner
look and a super search button!
It is also mobile and tablet friendly which we definitely need.

We are continuing with our Hope and Charm-ing,
focusing on our smaller packs of charms, cabochons and more.



Friday Die Day is a permanent fixture here on the blog
and thank you for always popping in to take a look.
Here's one of my favourites from 2018 featuring 
Grand Arch 3D Card made back in the 
Summer to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

We will still be carrying Tina Ashton Art,
her beautiful stencils plus more designs to come.

Very exciting Spellbinders collections on their way,
right now the new stamps are popular and I think we are 
the only stockist.  They are also for a limited time reduced!

I know many of you are still waiting to hear about the 
Becca Feeken die of the month kits,
I hope to hear more from Spellbinders regarding this
during January so fingers crossed everyone.

I will be blogging but daily is proving a little tricky right now,
as usual just not enough hours in the day.
If you stop by and there isn't a post I'm not abandoning you,
I'm just in the midst of something, hopefully crafting or you never know,
practising my brush lettering! 

On the home front...
 lots of thanks for the kind enquiries regarding my Mum,
she is feeling a little better.
She had a hospital appointment yesterday and a whole
list of appointments for 2019, she copes magnificently,
I take my hat off to her.

And in other news...
I hear we are being threatened with a second 
'Beast from the East' so please have your mittens at the ready. 
Bella will be sporting thicker jumpers! 

Take care friends.

Hi Christine
Happy New Year to you and your family. I’m glad to hear your Mum is feeling better.
I’m sorry I’ve not been in much just lately. Well not much at all I’m afraid. I mostly do look back as and when I can. But family needs are at the forefront at the moment.

Hi Christine, I would love to wish you a very Happy New Year, and I hope that 2019 will be a healthy and happy one !!
I'm so glad your Mum is feeling a little better.
We had a load of very loud fireworks going off at 12 am this morning, they woke me up with a start, my kitty Lizzie is terrified of them, so she was in hiding, at 12.15 I thought they had finished as there was a 'lull' so I opened the window (I can't sleep if the window is shut haha) and immediately they all started again, and went on until after 1am, I was so glad when they finished as they really stress me out, I am so worried for all the animals that are affected. This morning I feel like a 'zombie' haha.
I'm looking forward to your new website, and don't worry about blogging every day, to be honest I don't know how you manage to fit all in that you do, we all love to read and see what you have been up to, but we all know that your life is extra-full, so don't 'beat yourself up', we will always come back the next day.
Enjoy your day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hello Christine
Nice to hear from you today and Happy New Year ( I hope).
Fireworks started at 7pm until at least 1am, poor animals and people who served in conflicts must be so bad for them!
Looks like you will be busy in 2019 good that Elliott helps with pc.
Love to Mum we all think about her!
Take care
Love Marg

Hi Christine I'm not sure what happened here but apart from a couple of fireworks about 11.30 it was very quiet which is most unusual. I don't know how you manage to fit all your crafting on and go out to work even though the boys do so much as well so I'll just look forward to reading your tales as and when you are able to write them. Best wishes to all the family xx

Happy New Year to you and your family. I do hope you can manage to get to Basildon Essex again, we had a great time.

Hi Christine, I'm excited to hear about what's coming up in 2019! Can't wait to see the new website. I do hope Spellbinders will allow you to distribute the Bekka Feeken dies of the month. I LOVE the December one and very nearly signed up - until I discovered the postage was $52. Over $80 for one die was just too much :(
Happy New Year!!
Anne O
