My exciting news!

I meant to write this post much earlier, but I've been so busy this is the first chance I've had...

A while ago I had a lovely email from Janet asking if I'd like to join the DT for her new on-line craft shop... I didn't have to think about it for long!  The shop is called The Stamp Basket - it's under construction at the moment but will be open tomorrow, so exciting :o)  Here's just a few of the fabulous goodies Janet will be stocking...



  • Cute, fun stamps including Bildmalarna, Fizzy Moon, Nellie Snellen, Wild Rose Studio and more!
  • Gorgeous embellishments - pearls, lace, seam binding etc
  • Fabulous papers including My Mind's Eye, Bo Bunny, NitWit Collections, GCD Studio (I'm particularly excited about the papers, seen as my paper ban will finally be over in January, woo hoo!)
  • Martha Stewart punches, Marianne Design Creatable dies and much more!
I'm really excited about the fab teamies I'll be working alongside too - Vicky, Kerry and Teresa - such a lovely talented team... not sure how I slipped in lol :o)

Pop along to see The Stamp Basket Blog too, where we'll all be showcasing our creations and you can see all the latest news from The Stamp Basket.

I'm really thrilled to have been asked to join this lovely team, so a big thank you to Janet!  Ooh can't wait for the shop to open tomorrow :o)

On a completely different subject, I'm feeling a bit miffed tonight!  We've had LOADS of trick or treaters and the cakes have been very popular - I had 40 cakes and they've nearly all gone!  But that's not what I'm miffed about... we popped out for about half an hour so the boys could do their trick or treating, and when we got back some little 'darlings' had smashed the pumpkins that Dex and Morgan had put on our wall... there was pumpkin EVERYWHERE!  That'll teach us for getting into the spirit of things eh?  Grr... anyway enough of my moaning, don't forget to have a look at the shop when it opens tomorrow!

Congrats on your new DT position, I'll have to pop over there! Shame about your pumpkins being smashed, some people have no respect, and I imagine they were probably a bit jealous too.

This is lovely news Lisa - I'm so pleased for you!
Less pleased about the pumpkins though - how disappointing after the boys' hard work. Those cakes looked amazing and I'm not surprised they went down so well! Vx
