These tags are quick and easy to put together and are great fun too. Make 8 fun and festive gift tags and have supplies left over to make a few more. In this kit you will get photos, instructions, supplies all the die cuts, ribbons and rhinestones, and papers to make these 8 Christmas Tags. The back of the tags remain blank for your personal message. Gift a handmade gift tag this season. This is also a great activity to get the kids involved.

Gift Vouchers to be won in November & December. Indulge your Scrapbooking and Card Making Craft Hobby!!
The last few weeks have been really busy in the shop as everyone prepares for Christmas whether it be crafts, cards, buying Christmas Card Kits as gifts. Orders have been flying in and stock flying out, all the new Christmas Goodies have been arriving and are still arriving and it's all so beautiful I can't stop ordering the array of papers out there. Our December Kit will wow your socks off or should I say stockings off!! more on that soon.
Struggling for Christmas Ideas, why not purchase our kits, great for keeping the kids occupied through the long summer break. Also newly available are Koko Vanilla Gift Vouchers. Great for someone who has everything, or alternatively drop a hint to family and friends to jump on site and get you one for Christmas. They are available to purchase in store in our New Arrivals Dept.
I have been promising a Christmas gallery and this week I will finally begin loading samples of what you can make. Cute little gift boxes you can personalise and decorate for teachers or workmates, cards, gift tags and the best part of all is the supplies to make these items can all be found on site, so no running from shop to shop to find everything you need its all here. Be sure to keep on checking the Store and this blog for all the updates.
Gift Voucher Give Away

It's time to spread some Christmas Cheer. How would you like to go in the draw to win a gift voucher. It's too easy!
I will be drawing two random customer names each month for November and December to recieve a $20 gift voucher to use on site. So that's 2 x $20 vouchers, 2 winners each month. For every $20 you spend in store before postage you recieve 1 entry into the draw. If you recommend a friend to the site and they place an order you will get 2 extra entries into the draw just for doing that. Just email me the person's name you recommended and if they place an order I will add two entries on your behalf. November entries will close shortly so if you have already ordered this month, you are in the draw if you are yet to order, you have a week or so left, for a chance to win so what are you waiting for.

"Wasn't it clever of me to think you up? I mean, come on, wow!
Never has there walked the face of the earth someone who thinks with your degree of insight. Who loves with your degree of care. Or who feels with your degree of hope. And never has there been such a need for a soul with gifts like yours, because at this very moment there are people only you can reach, and differences only you can make. Yeah, I must have been having a really good day! ."
- The Universe
It took me a couple of times to read it before I fully got it, but I guess the part where it says "because at this very moment there are people only you can reach and differences only you can make", really tugged at me. How true is this I never thought of it that way. We are all unique and there are people in our lives that only we can make a huge difference for, like our children for one. We can make their days so special with the simplest of loving gestures, how privleged are we to have this right, one that no one else has. Think of your life as this quote puts it, next time you are having an average day, think of yourself in the scheme of things, step out of being self absorbed and think how you can make a difference and how honoured that you have been given such magic to work with.
By the way the website I get one of my daily quotes from including this one is Inspire your day.
That's my inspirational for today. I will be back with more website additions, infact I have been snowed under with orders and haven't had a chance to load on all the gorgeous new stock I have in. Hoping to update this blog with Christmas inspiration very soon. Until then enjoy your day!

I have gone on a bit here but I wanted to share this because I feel that what I am writing about here is common everywhere and this message is especially for the women out there who keep on filling everyone'e else cup and leave their own empty. When we do things through obligation and guilt, in the long term it only leads to anger and resentment and eventually illness. So next time you are about to say yes to something that has been asked of you, and it's really not in your heart to do it, think first what you are saying no to and who you should be really pleasing.
A bit heavy for a Sunday so let's lighten up a touch and get back to the best form of therapy there is scrapbooking and craft. Look at the abolutely gorgeous stamps that are now available for purchase on site. These stamps are guaranteed to jazz up any Christmas project you have going. These stamps are newly released for 2008 from Hero Arts.
Hero Arts, Large Christmas Circle Stamps. A set of four woodblock circle tags, perfect to make Christmas Tags, stamp and attach to Christmas Gifts, great for Christmas cards. Each image measures approx 5cm. To purchase Click Here

The Christmas card kit, (see post below), has been a huge success and I have managed to source a bit more stock to make up a few more kits, but once they're sold that will be it for this kit. There may be a wait for the kits that are ordered now to be shipped end of next week. The ones that were ordered this week are on their way, any kit orders from today onwards will not be shipped until late next week, possibly even the Monday after it just depends on how quickly the stock arrives to me.
It is Melbourne Cup weekend here in Melbourne and for us it's a 4 day break because the kids have a curriculum day, and hubby is home also. I am sure it's the case for lots of you out there. The weather however seems a bit uncertain, warm but cloudy and rain, so who knows it could go either way knowing Melb, so if all else fails get some craft out, there is no better time to make a start on your Christmas Cards. It's always a blessing to get organised and start knocking off that to do list we all have as it leads up to Christmas. I'm off to do some more designing. Remember if you have purchased stock from our store to send photos of what you create with it so it can be uploaded in our customer gallery.
Have a great weekend. Anna.

I have had lots of inspiring ideas swirling around my head for the website, so there will be some changes and additions coming soon. I am having lots of requests for Christmas Stock and I hear it all and as soon as my deliveries arrive I will start loading a Christmas Dept on Site. I will send an email to all the subsribers to notify you so if you would like to be the first know be sure to subsribe to the site. You can do that here. Once again I welcome customer requests and ideas so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are looking for something in particular I am happy to hunt around and find it for you. I am off to knock a few things off my to do list. Enjoy the week! Anna.
