Stamping Bellas & Class dates and times!!!

Hi there,

Hope all are well as well as being safe and dry - it was one hell of a week. While many of us are safe and dry in front of the Toy Show tonight in our own homes, there are so many that are in other accommodation tonight, so spare a thought for them!.

Been busy today putting up all the Stamping Bella stamps we have in stock in the shop - take a look at them here - be sure to look at all the sections, you will be pleasantly surprised to find there is more to Stamping Bella than actual Bella stamps.

Also you may have received a newsletter update from Kerry about the rescheduled Extravaganza classes. You can now see them all listed here or on the classes tab at the top of the blog. Also check out the coffee morning tab to find out more about our Christmas Coffee Morning.

Chat soon

Hope u all still safe & dry!!

There is a much reduced extravaganza timetable happening this weekend. I hear that those that got there today had a ball. Today's card making classes are being rescheduled to next Sunday November 29th. Kits from today's scrapbooking classes will be available in the shop during the week.
Tomorrow's classes are as follows. Judy's Family Scrapbooking class starts at 11am, followed by a short lunch break and then it will be Kerry's Beautiful Book class.
All other classes are being rescheduled and we will keep you informed as we get confirmation of available times and dates.

So keep safe and chat tomorrow!!!

Extravaganza Update

Evening All!!

Hope ye are all well, safe and dry!
Due to the adverse weather conditions we are literally taking it one day at a time as regards the Extrvaganza classes. Today we decided to postpone the Cardmaking classes by Siobhan Wilkins & Evonne Reidy that were scheduled for tomorrow Saturday 21st November - they will be now be taking place on Sunday November 29th. The scrapbooking classes with Judy Addison will be going ahead. Judy flew into Galway Airport and bypassed all the traffic and flood issues. Methinks I need a helicopter. I'm also thinking about the silver lining on this cloud - if I manage to get out of the island of Athenry I will be able to do both sets of classes - something that wasn't possible before this weather arrived.
Tomorrow we will make a decision on the Sunday classes.

So keep checking in and stay safe!!!

Coffee Morning Tomorrow

November Coffee Morning - Friday 13th

Hi there,
Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Coffee Morning at the shop.
The timing has changed slightly to 10.00am to 12.30. This should help those on a school pick up schedule. Tomorrow the theme of the demo will be the inside of your cards.
There are new goodies coming in for the Extravaganza so there will be some new things to see.
As usual there will be coffee, tea, cakes, magazines and brochures!!

See you there

Demo Day coming up...

.... this Saturday 7th November. Boxes have been arriving and I hear there is great excitement about all the new arrivals. Kerry and Helen will be demonstrating lots of exciting new goodies.

Among these will be the new Texture Boutique Embossing Machine from Sizzix as well as some new embossing folders and dies.

There will also be demos with the new Christmas Embossing Boards from Crafters Companion. These boards are designed to slot into the Ultimate Pro - if you don't have one of these already there well worth looking at as a crafty christmas present.

So what other goodies are to be had on Saturday?? If you haven't heard we are now stocking Sugar Nellie stamps - they are only available in the bricks and mortar shop. There are also the delightful stamps from Darkroom Door and other Tim Holtz/Ranger goodies and I believe there is more boxes due tomorrow.

Also there is a lucky draw for every customer - you should win a prize or get a discount voucher.

The latest newsletter and details of the Christmas Extravaganza were emaile yesterday and will be in the regular post in the next day or two.
I have also added the Extravaganza timetable and class information to the 'Spiddal Extravaganza' tab at the top of the blog. Blogspot doesn't allow you to do attachments so I've had to load them on Scribd first. Hope you can download the info from there. If not you can always contact the shop and get yourself added to our email or postal lists.

Think that's all the news for now

Oiche Mhaith!
