june 2016 (2nd newsletter)


JUNE 2016   (2nd one)

This is the 2nd newsletter for June – I did say I would get one out last Sunday, but hey, a week late is not too bad!! After all I did do a newsletter earlier in June.

Have been very busy this last week with working and I think I am suffering from withdrawals from not being out here in the craft room!! One more week of full on work and then I can get back into it again.

I do hope that those of you who went to the Feilding Craft Fair enjoyed it, unfortunately I was unable to make it this year – my wallet was quite thankfull!! 
A big thank you to Warehouse Stationery Palmerston North who put on an Art and Craft night, they do a great job and had a number of items being demonstrated with some make-n-take tables too. The staff are great and I am sure that everyone that went had a lovely time.  Great for shopping for those bits and pieces that you need, and also for those things that you were not sure how to use, like the different kinds of ‘boards’. Great to have them demonstrated before you purchase. I saw a number of young people very proud of their painting/stencilling make-n-takes.  Well done Warehouse Stationery.

We have had our June classes, and once again I have been in awe at your creations!!

 here are some of the heart cards.

And oh what fun we had making the tunnel cards – well done everyone

Since my last newsletter I have been busy as a bee……

Well I know that our household is a busy one even with just 3 or sometimes 4 of us, however I got to this point in the newsletter last night when I had to go off to work for a couple of hours. Got home to find no-one home ??? strange. Then, to cut a long story short, husband arrived to say we need to go to hospital. Our daughter was in her car and had a bit of a debate with the bank on the side of the road!!! Daughter ok but will be black and blue in the coming days – car not so well off. All good in the end, cars can be replaced.
So you see, I never quite know what is going to happen here.

Now to continue with the newsletter for a few minutes before I head out to Massey…..

Cricut news:  yes it looks very promising. Flo has been chatting on skype to Cricut and it is looking good. Flo is working with Three Little Whimzee to get the Cricut into New Zealand so if you are interested in one please do let me know or contact Flo. If you are in the Bay of Plenty area do pop into Three Little Whimzee shop (in Tauranga) and have a chat to them and see the lovely items in their new shop.
Tuition: For those of you who are in the Manawatu area Flo will be here at the end of July so if you want to check out the Cricut or have some tuition please let me know.

Porirua: The Wellington Paper Arts is on in Porirua 20th and 21st August so pop those dates in your diary. It is a great day (or 2) out.

 Our Craftroom Update:  yeh finally the new chairs have arrived.  They came in a VERY large box and once I had managed to get the chairs out of it the little kitten thought that it was just a wonderful tunnel to run and play in!! Anyway the chairs do look nice, and hopefully those of you who come to class will find them nice and comfortable.

OK, so now another week has gone by….
Who won the April/May bi-monthly prize???


Mark your calendars for:

Tue 12th         10.30am
Wed 13th       6.45pm
Thur 14th       1.30pm and again at 6.45pm
Sat 16th          10.30am and again at 1.30pm

Don’t forget – if you are interested in the Cricut or if you have one and want to learn more about it or about the online programs give me a call.

Take care of yourself, be kind to one-another,  and remember that ‘family’ extends beyond blood relatives.

Blessings to you
Madge        (check it out!!)
