Confessions of a Bad Blogger!

Apologies for being MIA! There have been a lot of changes over the last month or so in Simply Create and this has taken it's toll on everything, especially the time that should be spent doing all things IT (the one job where even the mountain of ironing looks more attractive)!!! I have also managed a wee break to recharge the batteries so am fully charged and ready to go, once again....

Sorry had to share the Bay of Angels in Nice, aaaah lovely!

So the shop has been transformed by the lovely Lesley and Linda, the workshops are well on their way to being actually prepared before the launch of the list (coming very shortly), we have new tutors and old with loads of new and regular classes to tempt you with along with loads of gorgeous new stock that has been arriving by the box load!

A bevy of beautiful beads have arrived to be followed very shortly by all of the tools and findings you could wish for, and there are two groups of avid beaders which meet every week to learn new techniques, share designs and follow projects with Aileen at their side for advice and guidance, so if you would like to join them then you would be more than welcome!

Kara is back with us, tempting us with all things Stampin' Up!, so if you would like to take a look at the new catalogue you can take a peek in the shop, (and you can always leave an order with me to pass onto her if you like too) or if you would like to sign up for one of her classes you'd best be quick as spaces are filling up quickly! (Dates on the sidebar).

Carole of Floral Finesse has been so busy over the last few weeks with weddings and gorgeous floral arrangements, have managed to treat myself to some gorgeous fresh flowers (well if I don't treat myself then noone else will, sadly)! She always has a gorgeous assortment of flowers every week which prove too hard to resist, so if you are like me and have to treat yourself then pop in on a Thursday or Friday and have a wee look!

Kirsti's canvas class this week was sold out but if you would like to try your hand at using loads of different mediums and get some fab ideas for using up some of your bits and pieces you have left over from other projects, sign up for the next one which is a winter themed canvas and then throughout 2012 we will complete the set with the other seasons so one (or four)not to be missed! Give us a ring to book and if you book all four classes you will receive a 20% discount at the time of booking.

Some of the girls, with their works of art, which all turned out very different but truly gorgeous!

And finally, look out for a new challenge on the blog on Friday, call it an early Christmas present but a gorgeous prize up for grabs, open to everyone, and as an apology for neglecting you all.....


  1. Since there are such lovely pictures in this post you are forgiven for being MIA =)

  2. Glad to hear you had a lovely holiday x

  3. I found your website the other day and after reading a handful of posts, thought I would say thank you for all the great content. Keep it coming! I will try to stop by here more often.
