Another Big Shipmemt & Retreat Prep

We are busy busy busy here, another big shipment arrived with more new goodies for the shop and some supplies for the retreat including class kit supplies for this time and some things we got for future classes as well as Goody Bag items too.

We have mostly checked it off and new stock is appearing as we speak on the website. The New My Little Shoebox is going up at the moment. Those fabulous little alphabet stickers that so many people love now come in even more colours, plus there are 6 new paper collections. What I love about the MLS collections is that they are small and compact - three double sided papers and a die cut paper per collection - there are go with its, including those little alphabets, but you can have the whole paper collection for very little cost. These new collections have gone to the Design Team this month so keep an eye on the galleries for ideas on how to use them.

I am working on my classes for the retreat at the moment, I am excited about the lovely products i am working with - two classes using CHA winter 2010 releases and one using a range from Summer 09. I have two layouts and a mini book all of which I really love, one of the kits is sitting right beside me now as I am waiting for a photo to arrive from photo box so I can make my sample and I just keep wanting to stroke the pretty bits and pieces in the kit. *big smiles*

Only four weeks to go until the retreat and this is the time it gets really hectic. The timing of the spring retreat always makes it slightly harder to keep on track with new supplies shipping out later than would be ideal. We are so lucky that the teachers are all very good about the tight timescales. I am sure I get a few grey hairs each time though when checking shipping dates and tracking numbers multiple times a day!
