what's in those boxes??

I've been being very secretive recently.  Very secretive and very busy, beavering away on two new projects....and I am Super Excited to show you the first....our *new* Christmas Craft Boxes!
 There are 6 colour themed boxes to choose from and each and every one is jam packed full of gorgeous paper-and-string supplies....
...everything comes packed into one of our Large (A4) plastic storage boxes ....and you get tonnes of goodies inside...
 ...and they are great value too...just £25 a box!
Please go and take a peep at them on the website (click here) ....I'd love to know which is your favourite colour theme....Icy Pastel, Gingerbread, Jolly & Bright, Traditional, Scandinavian or Frost?
as for the second part of my secret project...
well, that's not finished yet...
it is very Christmassy
it isn't something else being added to the shop
and it is something free for everyone to enjoy....i'll spill the beans on that very soon indeed :-)

tidy your ribbons!

I've been working on a couple of BIG new ideas - I'm not ready to reveal all just yet, but I can show you these new Ribbon Racks....
...they are made by Tilda and are really rather lovely.  They also make Big Spools to go on the racks ...
...or if you don't have space for a rack they made cute Ribbon Hangers..
...they don't normally come with a wooden spool but the spools I normally sell fit perfectly so I'm sending them out as a pair :-)
If you do have room for a rack check out this special offer ::
ONE ribbon rack
SIXTY FOUR rolls of trim/ribbon (2m per spool)
In a choice of TWO designs ::teeny tiny pom pom trim OR pretty rose spools
usual retail price £127 .... all for the bargain price of £100!
I don't have many of each - you have been warned!!
quick links ::
all ribbon racks and special offer bundels can be found on my website HERE

*such* hard work ;-)

 In between my normal, daily job of picking and packing orders I have done tonnes of little jobs today too - I paid some invoices, did some paperwork, bought some new jars for button storage, finished off the pom pom scarves for the cut out snowmen I showed you the other day AND played with made a display with with the finished snowmen and took a load of photos....I *love* my job!
Pom Pom Snowmen (and a lot of other Christmas cuties too) which are all handmade by me are available on my website here 
it seems the Christmas rush has already started so get your orders in whilst it's not quite so manic!
If you fancy making your own decorations this year you can with one of my kits....which are on the website here

pom pom time!

 Christmas in July fever has certainly started effecting what I am making at the moment...today I have cut out 12 pom pom snowmen who will all be sewn and posted out in the next few days....you can find them (and all my other Christmas cuties) on my web site's handmade page

Ribbon Remnants

You (my lovely customers!) buy a lot of ribbon.  I sell it in all sorts of ways - by the roll, in a pack or cut to order just for you - and selling cut to order just for you can lead to a lot of extra lengths of ribbon in my 'leftover ribbon basket'- it mostly comes from ends of rolls or when I cut around a mid-roll join .... and I have just finished colour co-ordinating, measuring and bagging to bring you :: Ribbon Remnant Packs!
there's a Christmas selection ::
 a Muted selection ::
 a pastel selection ::
 and a Bright selection ::
 they are all bagged up & listed on the website - and once they've gone they've gone!
