Counting down the days...

The retreat is only 2 weeks away which is scary for me and very excitement for those of you who are coming. I have sent out class requirements and class kits order forms so if you haven't received yours then let me know and I'll get onto it.

I didn't disappear off the face of the earth...I have been busy with ordering and getting class kits ready. New stock is arriving every day and its all starting to come together. I'm really looking forward to the classes myself!

Sharon Manning's off the page project is ready and too cute for words. I now have class requirements for it ready to send.

I've got my first shipment of American Crafts Thickers arriving directly from America soon as well as an assortment of journalling cards by Elles Studio, also from the USA. I'm excited about getting these popular products in to stock, especially in time for the retreat.

I had a great long weekend away in Esperance with family and friends and we had some much needed rain while we were away which has helped the crops a great deal.

My brother Dean is battling an infection at the moment and there have been a few complications but the daily blood tests show a rise in his counts which we understand is good news. Still early days but he is getting there...daily. His wife Cassi is incredibly strong and committed but spare a thought or a prayer for her if you can.

Thanks for looking and stay safe and well over the school holidays. I'm enjoying a few sleep-ins!
