I hope you signed up for the Kaszazz Creative Club and have received your 'spend $50 get another $50 free' voucher! What a lovely Christmas present from Kaszazz - thankyou to the Christmas elves at the Kaszazz Christmas office!!!

I will be putting through orders again from the New Year onwards, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to order some goodies. And of course, after we have finished counting down to Christmas, we all start counting down to January 20th when Kaszazz release their next group of products - YAY!

Final orders for 2012, final Market, and workshops 2013

Yes, I am sad to say it's time to put in your final orders for 2012! The busy beavers at the Kaszazz warehouse will be taking a well earned break from Friday 21 December to Monday 7 January. To ensure delivery by Christmas, your order needs to be sent to me by 3pm Sunday 16th December so that I can send in your order in time for Christmas! Other orders will be queued until the warehouse and delivery team return from leave in 2013.

And having been at Mount Barker last Thursday, and Meadows yesterday, my final market for 2012 will be at the Uraidla Producers Market this Sunday 16th December. Uraidla is ~10 minutes north of Mount Lofty, or coming from the city just keep driving along Greenhill Road through Summertown and you'll find it!

I am currently putting together a schedule of workshops for 2013. If you have any requests or feedback, I would love to hear from you. I am thinking of having fortnightly sessions mid-week in a local hall in the Blackwood Hills district, and maybe a monthly session on a Saturday in the Adelaide Hills region, such as Echunga, Summertown or Stirling. Love to hear your suggestions!

Happy crafting,

Latest additions to the papercraft repertoire

Here are the latest creations to be added to my papercraft repertoire...inspired by my Mum who made some cute owls! They will be making appearances at the Mt Barker Hand Craft Market tomorrow, and the Meadows market on Sunday (and Uraidla the following Sunday...if not sold out beforehand!).

Kaszazz Specials for December

Ho Ho Ho - It's Kaszazz Christmas FREEbie time!
Check out the December specials on the Something Special tab above.

I will be hosting workshops at my house for the first two Wednesday in December, and after that time will be by arrangement. I am always happy to run workshops, but will operate on an 'as requested' basis over the December/Christmas period.

A new workshop schedule for January and February will be published in a couple of weeks. I am looking at an additional venue to broaden my business horizons and make the workshops more accessible to more people. I would love to hear your feedback on the workshops and possible venue options, as well as any requests that I can accommodate in the range of workshops to be scheduled - for example, types of greeting cards, scrapbook pages, gift boxes, techniques (eg stamping, embossing, punching), products (eg shape cutting machine, heat tool, punches, embossing powder), etc) and any other requests!

I will be at the Uraidla Producers Market this Sunday (Dec 2nd), and the third Sunday of December. And I will be at the Meadows Country Market next Sunday (Dec 9th). In between, I will be at the Mt Barker Hand Craft Market on Thursday Dec 6th, and looking forward to catching up with a group of you at the Mt Marker Mega-Demo the following evening.

And finally, a reminder to put your order in now for guaranteed delivery before Christmas, as well as products you may wish to use in January, as the warehouse and deliveries team will be having a well earned break over the Christmas and New Year period!

Until next time, happy crafting.

Adelaide Hills markets

I am really enjoying visiting markets throughout the beautiful Adelaide Hills, and next Sunday I will be having my first stall at the wonderful Uraidla Producers Market.  The market celebrated its 18th birthday recently, so certainly a successful market which has been supported by visitors near and far for a long time!  It features hand made and home grown goods, all of good quality and good prices. It is held in the Institute Hall and surrounds, from 10am to 3pm.  I will have hand made goods for sale (including Christmas decorations, cards and gifts!), and able to bring along any Kaszazz products you might like see - just send me a note so I can ensure I have it in stock, and I will just store them separately on the day.

Yesterday I was at Meadows Country Market, and now I have to get ready for Wednesday's workshop, re-stock, re-order, and prepare some new things for Uraidla.  A busy week, but hopefully a quieter one now that the family member who has been in hospital is much improved and will be going home soon.  We are so blessed in this country to have such good health services in non-metropolitan locations!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Kaszazz new products now available

Well, it was certainly worth the suspense to see the new Kaszazz products released yesterday. We had a fabulous time at Team Training Day, and completed a new Christmas scrapbook layout, Christmas tag, and off the page projects (photos to follow in due course). Click here to see the new products in an online flier!
If you are thinking of signing up as a consultant, there are some extra special incentives available - including all consultants being eligible for a ticket on a cruise in 2014 as reward from Kaszazz! Wow!!!

Regardless of if you would like to be a consultant or not, there are always more products to try and techniques to learn in the world of Kaszazz, so please let me know if you have any requests, to book or host  a workshop, or to host a FREE demonstration.

And to close off today's update, I thought I would let you know I have booked a stall at the new Mount Barker Craft Market, which will be held in the Town Hall (Gawler St) on the second Thursday of the month, from 10am - 3pm. All goods sold at the market are hand made, so it will be great to see what other stall holders have been beavering away at and what they have been creating! All I have to do is find time to make some special things myself... Regardless of how much I am able to create beforehand, I am looking forward to meeting new crafty friends - stall holders and customers alike!

Happy crafting,

New Kaszazz product release

Well, due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to attend the Meadows Country Market last weekend, and I was disappointed that I was not able to catch up with the many visitors to my stall from last month who were coming back this month. My apologies for any inconvenience caused, but I look forward to catching up with you again in October.

The good news is that Kaszazz Team Training Day is on this weekend, which means there is a new product release coming next week too! Consultants are introduced to the products first, and are then ready to assist customers with any queries they might have about now to use them, techniques, etc, not to mention new demonstrations and workshops! Yippee!!! And if you have a few moments free, pop over to the Kaszazz website which has recently undergone some changes as well.

Although I had intended to have updated my workshop schedule before now, family illnesses have prevented me from spending much time on project samples, or my website, so with any luck I will put together a new schedule next week - including a selection of new workshops following the new product release. I'm sure there will be some fantastic Christmas themed projects, plus a few surprises just to keep things interesting!

Until next week, happy crafting,

Well, I guess "The First Post" is a good start - having "The Last Post" would be an entirely different story!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy reading about my love of papercrafts, card making, scrapbooking and other handmade crafts. While I am based in Adelaide, South Australia, I am very much looking forward to linking up with other card makers and scrappers from around the globe who also love papercrafts.

I have recently joined Kaszazz as an independant consultant, and LOVE their range of products, design ideas, workshops, training and support, not to mention the extra freebies and bonuses they offer to customers - more than you would ever receive in a department store!!! And did I mention how much FUN it is too?

Be sure to check out my "Something special" page for monthly specials and information about demonstrations, classes, workshops and Kaszazz freebies!
