November Notes 2021

art tag made by Zoe Hillman for Tim Holtz

Remember this marvellous creation made by Zoe Hillman for Tim Holtz? I love it!

Zoe's used the gorgeous new purple Distress treasures "Villainous Potion" with Tim's Sizzix Toil and Trouble Thinlits set. While made for Halloween, it would be perfect for a birthday card with "i brewed or baked you a cake" or something 🤣 Why not! lol

Incidently, I've almost caught up with packing PreOrders for Villainous Potion (thank you 💚 everyone) so can finally say publically that we have it in the shop! The fun witches are in stock too :D Next to pack are Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Couture Stamps which look awesome, and then the Idea-Ology Christmas treasures... And (bwtm) Tim's Christmas stamps are on their way over! So they'll be next 😆 Most of your Idea-Ology Halloween treasures are posted now. Waiting for more Window Frames but they can't be too far away 👻

Dyan Reaveley's new Dyalogs should be here around the 16th to 20th November ... love the new spotty rainbow cover "Pride", so colourful and positive!

I was going to email you all last night (3rd Nov) ... and prob should still do so considering not everyone reads this shop blog or is on Insta or FB. We'll get there... time Is on My side!

Thanks so much for waiting with me for all of Tim and Dyan's treasures! I'm so grateful :) 

Have a Happy Creative Arty Crafty Day!
