Merry Christmas 19/12/07

I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year as it is my last day here before Christmas, although I'm sure my collegues will update the blog over the Christmas period.
A little treat for you (thats if you're a cat person), anyone that knows me knows that I am a mad cat lady and so I thought I would share with you a picture taken of them a couple of weeks ago.

Finally We have had loads of new deliveries in today and so keep your eyes peeled on the web for new Queen & Co and Disney items.

Christmas Dinner ........ 17th Dec 2007

Time for you to put a few faces to names.......
This is Geoff and Paula, the are the owners of Crafts U Love and it was Paula who started the business about 6 years ago, packing parcels on her ironing board in the bedroom.....
This is Sue and Joan, Sue works in the office and Joan is a great friend of Paula & Geoff and all of us at Crafts U Love, she often comes to see us and is a huge part of the CUL family. Sue feels that her arm looks like a thigh in this photo... I wish my thigh looks like that....
This is KT who packs and posts ll the parcels for our online orders. She has her own little cupboard and if she is really good she is allowed out of it!
This is the whole motley crew, left right is Paula, Me, Sue, Joan, Tracey, KT, Jackie, Helen & Paula's Mum Lyn.
This is Sue with a piece of watercress up her nose??? Apparently it sneaked up there whilst she was munching, good job we weren't at the Queens for tea.
This is me trying on Sues glasses, I think that we all agreed that it was a great impression of Olive from "On The Buses"
Finally this is Jenny, she is Geoff's mum and was missed out of the group shot. Jenny started Crafts U Love with Paula many moons ago, she is now busy with lots of new projects.
So there you have it, some faces to names! We had a lovely time, Geoff's Christmas speech is legendary and the highlight of the evening.........

I'm so sorry...................15/12/07

I am so sorry that I haven't updated for a few days, as you may know we have a 10% off everything online at the moment and we are really really busy. Also the 10% off in store has started today so it'll be another busy week ahead!!!

I just wanted to pop on and show you a lovely evening class that was made at an evening class last week by Wendy Horrid. It is using the "ready to dress" pails and the QK Snowday Ltd edition die set. We have just been told that we may be able to get hold of some more so keep your eyes pealed or email for details.

I was off yesterday so I forgot to show you the create & take! We made this card designed by Jackie.

Sorry it isn't a great picture, it is using the Papernation Nativity stamp, the QK Cookie Cutter Christmas greetings, the QK Revolution square tag and the Cuttlebug spots & dots embossing folder.

Also Crafts U Love had our Christmas party on Thursday evening, we had a fab evening at a local pub/restaurant. There are quite a few pictures but I haven't had a chance to get them of Geoff's camera to get them online.

I have one picture of Sue I thought you would like, Sue works in the office and takes the majority of telephone orders. She also does a lot of the customer service and I'm sure many of you have either spoken to her or seen her before. This is her quite early in the evening, they get worse..........including being attacked by a piece of watercress????? I will try and get hold of some more pictures so that you can put some faces to names.

Finally thanks to everyone who has asked about my famous finger! I am pleased to announce that it is MUCH better!! The dressings are off and although it doesn't look too pretty it will be back to normal soon.

That's all for now, I will pop back soon!

I'm Back.......... December 6th

You will all be pleased to know that I am back in the land of living, although some may say that is debatable!!!! ....... My finger is still very sore but hopefully on the mend.

I thought you would like to see last Fridays create and take, it was designed by Tracy and is really lovely.....

It is made using the Rudolph QK die and the QK Calvin alphabet. All available online.

Also some other exciting news for one of the Crafts U Love team, Jackie has become a Nanna for the 2nd time to a beautiful little girl, Bethany. I can't resist a bubba shot so thought you would all like to meet her as well.

I think you will all agree she is a little stunner!!!!! Keep your eyes peeled for some pink scrapbook layouts soon.....

I am finalising the Jan-Aprils class schedules so it won't be long now I will let you all know when they are online.

Speak Soon

4th December - Zoe's Finger!

Poor Zoe, she popped into hospital last Wednesday to have a minor operation on her finger and as Zoe doesn't have much luck with hopsitals she is now at home with an infection, high temperture and pain. Her finger and hand is now infected so she is on a course of antibiotics. We are missing her at the Crafts U Love Shop but hopefully she will be back soon! She is also missing all the new product deliveries!!!
