Busy, busy, busy.....

What a week!

Last weekend was Artstamps England at Newbury and we were busy, busy, busy! Saturday was a tad hectic, but on Sunday we had a bit more time to have a chat, which is always nice.

The demo was Pan Pastels with Dylusions stamps and masks, Crafter's Workshop masks, with Glitz Design and Kaisercraft background stamps. We had a blast despite Val's stinking cold and sore throat so, see you all same time, same place next year.

Now to the really important things. Today is Snazzy's DT Co-ordinator Gillian's birthday and as well as sending her loads of birthday greetings, virtual hugs and a little something in the post, we need to say a very important word that just doesn't seem to cover it really, but a big THANKYOU will have to do.
Gillian is not only a very talented teamie who creates fantasic art for us month after month she is the absolute foundation of Snazzy's Design Team. Without her there would be no DT, she is the one who keeps everything running so smoothly that you can just enjoy the Teams' art, makes everything happen to schedule and is always so tolerant of us picking her brains. When she agreed to take on the DT role just over a year ago she made our day, and continues to do so on a very regular basis.

So, altogether now, thank you Gillian and lots of very happy birthday wishes fron all of us!

Also today, and a complete co-incidence, the online store finally goes live.

Before you get over excited though I have to say that although the stucture of the site is all in place, there are a lot of empty categories as yet with only around 500 stamp plates plus all the Pan Pastels (Pan Pastel tools tomorrow!) currently showing. We will be loading more items every day and by the end of the month should have all the stamps, inkpads, powders and paints we stock loaded with the papers, cardstocks & blanks to follow. The upside is that each time you look you will find more to see, and hopefully buy, so do bear with us.

Thanks for your patience and for visiting xx


  1. Newbury was a blast and I stopped by your store with the intention of buying lots of ink sprays and some stamps. Sadly, the stamps I wanted had proved so popular that you had sold out!! Ah well, the web site will be up and running soon - good luck with it when it goes "LIVE"


  2. It was great to see you again on Saturday and I can't wait to start shopping in your online store - well done for getting it done! Off to check it out now.... See you soon!

  3. Thank you sooooooo much for your kind words. I have to thank you for having the faith in me in the 1st place. I love what I do and I'm immensely proud to be your DT Co-ordinator. I couldn't do it without all the gang, so a big thank you to them. xx

  4. Aw, I so wish I could get to more of the shows you do. I always fancy the Newbury one and especially now as you had such a good time.

    Glad you managed to get the online store open today as planned even if we have to wait for the bulk of goodies to be loaded. I know how hard you've worked on it.

    Last but not least, a very Happy Birthday to Gilly, DT co-ordinator extraordinaire!

    Hope tomorrow is a calmer day for you all at Snazzys HQ.

    Big Hugs
    Lesley Xx
