A great one for DAD's day

Handy Dad by Todd Davis has arrived, in perfect time for Fathers Day!
25 projects for dad and kids with materials that can easily be found at home or in a hardware store. Projects vary from fairly easy to a full weekend's worth or work and they are are really cool!

Call or pop in if you like any of these styles, I have a feeling they are going to sell pretty quick!

paper scrissors craft

Loving this new book Paper Scissors Glue that just came in. Some projects are very much like the paper crafts on Playschool (that always look easy when your watching them but you can never remember them later on!); a great reference for a quiet day at home with the kids.

The books is designed for 3 to 10 year old's and it would be evenly proportioned for boys and girls. Catherine Woram also wrote another favourite of ours Crafting with Kids ..... Its a goodie!

new from Mae!

Arriving instore this week are some new fabric wall stickers from Mae.
Isn't this new colour palette for the tree, critters and oh deer just so right with the moment. The dark wood tree is perfect for a room that combines retro with new.... you will be seeing this one on our wall in the store i think!

And this brand new Australiana set is awesome!

These new colours and styles were launched at the tradeshow last week and are being posted to us this week- yay! We are happy to take pre-orders via the website. x

Poor man letterpress by giddy giddy

Came across this fantastic post from Teri at Giddy Giddy that thought should be shared. Teri designs and crafts those divine Giddy Giddy felts hair-clips and accessories we sell and LOVE instore. She is a true aspiration and always delights with her lovely ideas and posts.

This particular post is about making your own simple stationary using an inexpensive punch letter kit.

Have a little read of Teri's post and enjoy making your own one afternoon!

a sneak peak...

Here are a few of the styles in from Missie Munster and Munster -

cute hey! They will online later today - yay! xx

From this... to this!

I'm like a kid in a lolly shop when new stock arrives. I have to open all boxes immediately, rummage thru, ruin the piles and squeal with delight at all the newness! The works then begins with unpacking each style, checking off the invoice, pricing, and then merchandising .... the most fun bit!

New Season has started to hit and gosh it was a lot of fun unpacking Littlehorn and Munster on Friday. The store looks brand new again and we are due for more labels in the next few days. I am loving every single style too, no favourites this time. Pop in and have a squizz! 
We are happy to layby too, these new styles won't last long! 
Online soon xx
