Two Day Craft Workshop - 1st and 2nd August

This coming weekend is the Two Day Craft Workshop, using the Jo Sonja paints and mediums which we are really looking forward to.

We will be decorating a mirror or box and a bag.
All you have to do before the Craft Weekend is choose your colour scheme and decoration.

There are still a few places left, so if you fancy a weekend away from the family and a chance to learn about decorating using the crackles, paints and serviettes, give us a call on 01635 860900, email me on or visit the shop.

ProMarker Drop In Session

Here are some photos from tonight's ProMarker Drop In Session held by Tracy Watkiss. She demonstrated to us all how to use the pens and then we had great fun experimenting with colouring, shading and blending. We were all amazed at the fantastic colouring capabilities we achieved with the ProMarker pens.

A big thanks to Tracy for letting us use her adorable Just Tracys' rubber stamps which are available to buy at Flutterby Crafts. Above are a few samples using her rubber stamps with ProMarker pens....aren't they great.

When you buy your 1st ProMarker pen in the shop please don't forget to ask Lynn for details about the ProMarker Challenge Club at Flutterby Crafts.

So, here I am sitting with my mummy, my daddy and my little sister, having had a lovely walk along Southend seafront. We had a ride along the pier on the train. A Rossi's Ice Cream (you have to experience it to understand the wonder of that!). An hour in the penny arcades - such a laugh and as usual we did not win! All topped off with fish and chips out of the paper. Wonderful!!

All we have to do now is steal ourselves ready for the drive home.

I promise to be back in work mode tomorrow. Hopefully I will get the email out with all the kids summer holiday workshops.

Good Morning, Everybody
Sorry that it has been a while since I wrote anything in here. Life has been very busy.
I will just do a very quick recap over the past few weeks.
Firstly Nicky had her operaton - that was a month ago this week! How time flies. She popped into the shop yesterday and she is looking very well although, as expected, she still gets very tired.
Then we had the Art Stamp show. That was great fun and Tracys new stamps went down a treat - as did the Promarker pens.
I have now got my Sister, Vivien, staying with me until she emigrates in August, so I am making the most of her and she has been decorating the bead shop & the workshop - busy girl!
Helen and Jet were down last weekend. Sorry I have not posted a photo of her birthday card yet. I took the photos but cannot find where I downloaded them. Der!
Yesterday was the first day of our new painting classes and Sonnie did very well. She has got Grant hooked now.
So now I am on run down to Tracy coming back down and us holding the Basic Cardmaking day and the big Crafting weekend - not to mention that I am going to get Tracy running a few Promarker workshops while she is here, but don't tell her.
So that has brought us up to date.
I am having half-a- day off today (there is a birthday party in the workshop this afternoon, so I will have to go in) and then tomorrow I am going off to see the parent, so we are going for a walk along the sea front, having a lunch of fish and chips then going into the penny arcades. Great fun!!
I will speak soon.
Lynn xx
