Bittersweet Ending.....

So it is with heavy heart that I write this....

Most of you will know that I moved to Perthshire to start a new life with my family last year and had hoped to find premises and start Simply Create Too, since moving I have tried to find affordable and suitable premises to no avail and then as a total bolt out of the blue we have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity, and so with a huge tinge of sadness I have to accept that I need to let Simply Create in Alford go, so it is for sale as a going concern as of today, it is business as usual with loads of bargains to be had which will be added to constantly, ex workshop equipment, tools, machinery and display items are all ripe for the picking too!

I want to thank all of you for making Simply Create a success and for being such good friends over the last four years, it has been an amazing time.

So if you fancy a bargain or maybe you are up for a career change into craft retail, pop in or get in touch and maybe we'll manage a catch up before I leave!

Fridays Challenge.....*sticky please note this post will stay at top of page until 31/10*

So as a way of an apology and to get your crafty thoughts into a frenzy and onto paper, wood, fabric whatever takes your fancy I would like to challenge you to come up with a gorgeous project depicting autumn, use whatever materials you like but stick to the colour pallette below, and now that we have darker nights creeping in you have until the end of October to enter and the winners will be announced on Halloween (enter spooky, creepy laugh here)!!!

You can upload your entries here or leave a link to your blog and I will lift your photo and put it on here, you can bring your project to the shop and I will take a photo of it and upload it to here or you can email me a photo ( and I will upload to here too!!! The challenge is open to everyone no matter where in the world you are. So spread the word, the more the merrier as autumn is my favourite season, I am really looking forward to see what you come up with, so let your imagination and creativeness flow. Each entry will be numbered as they are made and then numbers will be placed in a cauldron and the first customer of the day on Halloween will pick the winner!

And now for the exciting bit, the could be the lucky winner of a Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine and some dies, embossing folders and sizzlits to get you started.

Boo to You!!!!

So if you go down to Alford Main Street you might be in for a big spooky surprise, check out our window (please note those of a weak constitution should hold someones hand)!!!

The madness has taken over, we had such a laugh and the amount of people who stopped to stare and take in the goings on was brilliant, from farmers tipping their caps to toddlers waving from their buggies, we had an audience whilst window and Carole dressing!!!!

Samantha the witch(anyone else remember Bewitched with the wiggly nose?) (above) just experienced some turbulence me thinks! This is a work in progress but I couldn't wait to share the spooky goings on with you all!!!

Loads more to come, as contrary to the rumours Simply Create is NOT closing down, I am moving to Crieff in Perthshire and hope to open Simply Create Part II in the future so continue to watch this space....................
