Our new Class Room

It has been mayhem at the shop today but we managed to seperate one of our rooms to create our new classrooom. We were up against the clock as we had a full class tonight, but we finished and we are very happy with the results! In the middle of this we had the arrival of Penny Black Stamps & some Bo Bunny Papers & rub ons, obviously we had to stop and investiage this package. After lots of ooooohhhs & aaaahhhhs we thought we better carry on and get the room done before the customers arrived. We will take some photo's and post them soon on the blog for you to have a look.
