Play day and new products

Hi there,

Back again - wasn't expecting to be here so soon again, but just had to tell ye the news. Kerry & Kim were having a late evening getting the Yellow club out. They rang to tell me about a box that had arrived - New Ultra Fine Flowersoft!!! I had seen it in the magazines but didn't expect to see it 'in the flesh' for a while. But it is here - well in Spiddal!! You can have a peek here.

Sunday's scrapbooking event has changed slightly. Instead of a kit/class and a crop the crop has been replaced by a Clarity stamp & Flowersoft play day. Clarity stamps are new to An Siopa Bui. You can check them out here.
There will be a materials bag for each person to play with and of course the use of the stamps, inks, flowersoft, glue etc on the table.

Coming along for the day will cost €20. Coming along for the play day costs €5 - but it must be booked as places are limited.

I'm off to charge the camera - going to be a busy weekend!


A few Wednesday Makes!!!


It is beautiful and sunny out and the frost is melting quickly!!

I just wanted to show you a few of the samples that have been coming out of the Wednesday morning classes.

I hear that Clarity stamps have arrived in the shop - I can't wait to see them. Tomorrow is Friday
Scrapping Morning so might see some of ye tomorrow.

Keep checking back - I believe there is a change to a weekend class to include some new products - details to follow later today.

Bye for now


Two similar door signs using a 'Gorjuss Girl' from Sugar Nellie and some 'mad' new card from the Payperbox. The finished item looks realy well! The pink card is made using some new Hero Arts stamps and punches.

Some card samples and a new calendar feature

Hi there,

Can you believe it is Friday again?!?!.
I hear there was a lovely coffee morning today and just to add to the fun and games a delivery arrived while everyone was there. I love being in the shop when there is new goodies being unpacked - I guess the child in me is never going to grow up!

I have added a new Google calendar to the blog, with our upcoming events. If you use Google calendar then you can add our events to your own calendar. I'm also working on a calendar on Facebook - I'd love to hear if these are working for you or if you have some other calendar ideas to help us keep you up to date and schedule your crafty diary!

So here are a few of the samples we got from Hero Arts with the new 2010 products.
Hope ye like them

Enjoy the weekend
