Arty News for Aug and Sept 2022 - Halloween Treasures

Happy Arty Day!

It's all happening here at Art by Jenny with deliveries of old favourites being restocked, brand new products arriving and itching to be noticed (they would if they were online hey?) and everything generally needing to be done, all at the same time!  Luckily I'm a robot and with a flick of a switch can have it all done in a second, just call me Rosie :) lol As if, but would be so handy some days! That reference will only work if you grew up with The Jetsons as I did...

Thank goodness for computers though! Its much easier to fix something, update a description or add a photo using these marvellous useful machines. Back in the day when everything was managed by posting out catalogues, we'd have to organise a reprint or put stickers over mistakes. Mind you, if we had mailorder catalogues like the do in Harry Potter, then our pictures would be so cool, moving about and no doubt, making a mess by opening their own lids! :) ha ha ha

So, without further chitchat ... here are the latest updates about what is going on in our world of arty crafty treasures. There are brief updates on the PreOrder and What's New shelves as well, with dates so we all know where we are with preorders, deliveries and arrivals.

... Last updated - Friday 13th Sept 2022 ...

Distress Watercolour Pencil News ... First deliveries of Set 1 are sold out (thank you everyone) - and now we're simply waiting for Ranger to make lots more! Hoping for before Christmas but we must wait and see. We do have a few left available of Sets 2 and 3 :) You could always buy set 1 another day.
- Sorry if you've missed out, but it won't be forever. These are not a limited edition product, they're with us forever and ever like all our favourite Distress are. As long as Ranger keep making them that is, but definitely a long time!
- Watch their spaces or add to your wishlist! Sing out if you have questions, thanks for waiting with me! 

Exciting Dylusions News ... Awesome news! Big boxes filled with Dylusions is already on the way across to us with brand new designs of Couture Stencils, colourful Shimmer Paints and large Dotted Black Journals :) Landing inStore very soon :) So exciting! Find them in the PreOrder collection or on Dyan's Dylusions shelf in our shop (links in the menu above).

Dyan's fantastic sets of Dylusions stamps include the purrfectly adorable Mr Boo (Dyan's Cat) having a sleigh ride on a large stamp that is big enough to fit across a whole page! The reindeer and sleigh are split into 2 stamps to enable us to fly around corners or across the middle of a spread easier :) Love it.
With Mr Boo are adorable birds wearing hats and elves (or gnomes or kidlets in dressups), wonderful trees, borders, holly and mistletoe. Perfect companions for all your other favourite stamps, stencils and arty treasures!

Dina Wakley's 4 new stamp sets are an invitation to stamp every day - make cards, stamp in journals, stamp on scraps for another day, any excuse to stamp! Dina's faces make drawing portraits and creating abstract art easy! Love the Circled set :) Colour them in, stamp on gel prints, leave monotone, have fun!
