A Hectic 5 Days but we are enjoying it.

Hello Everyone.

Well what a mad 5 days its been here at the shop.

It took us until Thursday to get all of the
pre ordered nestabilities out and we worked until 9.00 pm each night to make sure you would get them in good time.

We would like to thank you "all of our customers" for your loyalty to us and for telling all of your friends about us too it really makes us feel as though we are doing a good job.

Here is a picture of Harry guarding the last boxes filled with pre orders that were posted out to you on Thursday.If you had seen the ammount of boxes all over the workshop area on Tuesday you would not have believed it, it really was amazing.

Friday was the first day for the UK launch of the JUSTRITE stamping system in the shop and it was a huge sucess as was today and hopefully tomorrow too.

Everyone who comes can see the whole range and we have an area where you can try them out for yourseves before you buy them and people have really enjoyed that.
I will post a picture or two later in the week to show you a few of the things we have made so far.

The stamps are so wonderful to use with your nestabilities and really give a professional look to your cards and scrapbook pages.
Heres a pic of just a few of the stamp sets we have at the shop and we have more sets to come yet too.

Right im off to bed now so i am ready for the last day of the JUSTRITE Launch tomorrow.

If you would like to come along and try the stamps out yourselves tomorrow we are open from 10.00am until 4.00pm and look forward to seeing you.

Smiles Robert Gordon and Harry.
