Beginning to hate cars ...

Why you may ask ?   Simply because we got home last night to find our cat, Felix, had been hit by a car.  He's at the Vets now with two broken legs.

He's to get examined again today and our Vet is arranging for him to be transferred to a specialist orthopaedic unit in Fife, Edinburgh or Glasgow.  It's early days yet so we are hoping that he will make a full recovery.

I know some people may laugh at us being so upset about a cat, but what would you say if it was a child who had been hit by a car ?

Mystery Celebrity arrested by Fashion Police!

There are unconfirmed reports that our Mystery Celebrity has been arrested by the Fashion Police for offences against good taste!

It seems that he has appeared in Fashion Court where the Judge remanded him for contempt as he kept his face screwed up ...

We'll bring you further details as and when we hear them.

Nice to meet you

It was nice to meet Max, the winner of our Big Secret Summer Sale competition earlier in the month.

She was in with her daughter and spent quite a while wandering around.  I think she was a bit surprised at how big the shop is, being around 1000 square feet.  She managed to spend her £10 voucher though, plus a little bit more!

We look forward to seeing you again Max.  Just let us know in advance next time and we'll have a lovely chocolate muffin waiting on you.  Or a granola bar.  Your choice!

Double the Discount Winner

Congratulations to Jacqui Wright who won Double the Discount.

She will be getting a voucher for £12.47, the value of the discount she received when she was shopping here over the weekend.

Commiserations to everyone else whose name went into the draw, but keep watching the Blog.  There will be more competitions soon.

Beavering away!

Everyone on the Crafting with Punches and Die-cutting Machines class is busy working away at the projects.  Main topic is a snowman card ( Yes it is only 18 weeks till Christmas! ) and they are all busy punching, die-cutting, sticking and measuring.

I have a feeling they are going to be looking at other things on the teabreak though as there are a lot of bargains in our sale.
