NEW! Dyan Reaveley Arty Treasures! ... Dylusions Stencils, Collage Sheets, Colouring B&W Sheets, Shimmer Paints and Shimmer Sprays are all in stock. But we need to wait a few more weeks for more of Dyan's new stamps. I'll make them available for PreOrder again shortly, when they get closer. They're fantastic designs (of course they are! lol), so well worth waiting if you've not got your's yet. Lots of fun they are :)
Tim Holtz Treasures ... Tim's latest Stamps paid a short visit with more being delivered in August sometime. Most of Tim's Sizzix designs he announced the other day in the video showing those incredible creations have started arriving with more ordered so nobody need ever miss out! The gorgeous Butterfly Impresslit will be a little while, so watch it's space or ask for one to be saved. I'll open up PreOrders for it when it gets closer.
Tim and Ranger's beautiful new blue Prize Ribbon Distress collection of treasures (anyone else think of icecream?) has arrived and set no.9 and no.10 of the Distress Enamel Pins will be here next week.
Did you see that Tim's Tonic Studio Guillotine Deckle Trimmer is finally back in stock along with quite a few other treasures that we've been waiting eons for! Keep an eye on your wishlists and see if what you've saved is back (click the little purple heart on the product pages). Hopefully the wishlists are proving useful :)
Stamperia has arrived today! Down the rabbit hole I go this weekend, to get it all online :) Visit the Alice collection on Saturday night (24th July). Looks awesome!
Have you seen the handy sized books by Dina Wakley? There's a white watercolour paper book with wonderful cotton paper. The latest is a Kraft Mixed Media Journal, at only 6"x6", its a perfect size for keeping in the handbag when going out or in the lounge room to stamp, draw and colour after dinner! Lately, I've been stamping the kraft brown pages with Ranger's Archival Ink, colouring with Posca Pencils, and the colours show up beautifully :) Its all good fun really, whatever we use!

Looking for something and can't find it? Sing out anytime, I love to help :)
All of us at 'Art by Jenny' are still safely squirrelled away in the south of the city (almost in the country we are) thank goodness, so while Australia Post is still open, we're still able to work at getting all your treasures posted to you.
Hope you're staying safe and keeping warm. Its been wild and woolly outside all week here. I'm so grateful to have a scarf, warm jumper, lots of snuggly thick socks and a heater! Good day to be a duck I reckon :)
Have a creative Happy day!
