.....and about time too!

Has it really been that long? Mmm, yes I do believe it has.

Never mind, back at last and lots of news so hang on in there!

Firstly, a non Snazzy bit of news - Basepoint has a new cafe at No 74 (by the entry gate, right next door to the hair salon) run by the lovely Jolka. She will be open six days a week, Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm and from 8.30am to 2.30pm on a Saturday. She will be providing freshly prepared and cooked food from breakfasts to salad and pasta pots, paninis and baguettes accompanied by a full range of teas, coffees, shakes and smoothies to help you wash down her delicious cakes.....

....all in the name of essential product testing you understand lol!
So, if you are coming along to shop, or to a class, you will be able to sample her delish food for yourself and she will be happy to take food orders on your arrival for collection at the end of your visit too. Do give it a try and support a new, local, independent business.
Next up, you can now find us over on Pinterest where we have 12 boards of inspiration with everything from cards, layouts, art journal pages, mini books and mixed media which we will be adding to each week. Pop over there, click 'follow' on the boards that most interest you and you can have regular inspiration delivered to your Inbox. Still very much a 'work in progress' but do let us know what you think.
Also, following lots of requests, we have reintroduced our monthly scrapbooking workshop with a new idea for a 12x12 layout each time in a three hour workshop costing £15, and the only thing you need to provide are the photos.
With the first layout, the focus was on creating your own background with stamps, sprays, inks and embossing powders....
and making simple, custom embellishments....
and in the second workshop it was all about layers, in paper, ribbon and lace.....
and with the embellishments...
These first two workshops were fully booked and if this continues I will be happy to add a second slot each month either on the timetable, or as a privately booked session for a group of 4 or more. Is this something that would appeal to you?
Finally, I am currently working on the April workshop timetable and the February and March schedules are available over on the main website where you will find something else new too - each month we will be featuring our favourite product together with a project made with it. This was February's....
 Again, do let us know what you think.
That's enough for now, but I will be back on Tuesday with a roundup of some of the new lines in store and a peek at some of the latest workshop projects in the pipeline.
Thanks for dropping by xx
