Well I am on the ball this month – it is only 5th and I am onto the newsletter!! I am noticing that our weather is starting to get a little cooler some days – just letting us know that winter will not be far away, good time to be crafting.
I have been busy making the lovely swan cards for people for all sorts of occasions. Wedding, Christening etc. It is a lovely card, and I did one in pink and white for a Christening. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo. Have asked the person it was for if she could take a photo for me so will post it when I get it. I have also made a lovely gift box set which has MUM on it. As I do not have a mum to give it to I will probably re-cut the sides and make it a ‘for anyone’ set. Each box can contain a gift so it is quite lovely.
I have also been busy as a bee making cards and tags for Rae for the hospital in AbuDhabi – have another package ready to post off to her now. I find it amazing that I post a foolscap size bubble wrap envelope to her and it takes 4 to 5 weeks for her to get it – she posts me a package with some lovely baby wear in it (similar size package to the one I sent her) and it arrives in 3 days!!!!! I think it would be quicker for me to fly over and give her our packages – of course the cost would be a little different ha ha.
Our May classes are going to be on the following days/nights and we will be making the – wait for it – yes the tool card!!! I know that lots of you have been waiting for this one to do.
Tuesday 10th - 10.30 am
Wednesday 11th – 6.45pm
Thursday 12th – 1.30pm and 6.45pm (different card)
Saturday 14th – 10.30am and 1.30pm
So that I have enough packs cut (especially the tools) please book in with either an email or phone call. If you cannot make one of these times please let me know as I do have other class times that may suit you better.
Dale has won our February/March “special gift” draw, for those who come two months in a row.
Coming up on the calendar:
Flo will be arriving on Wednesday 18th so anyone wanting any help with their Cricut or just a catch up with Flo give me a call to make sure we are here and not ‘shopping’. She will be leaving again on 22nd.
Don’t forget PINKALICIOUS on 21st May – this is a great day run by Margaret and raises money for Hospice.
Well it is time for me to go pack up Raes things and get them posted to her and to hopefully cut the box card that I would like to do.
I will post this newsletter on my blog which is : madgescreations.blogspot.co.nz so do follow me on there and comment – love to hear from you.
Blessings to you
