We arrived home safely on Friday evening and are slowly recovering from Jetlag.
I have gone to bed at 11.00pm on both nights (very good for me) and have been wide awake at 5.00am (very very good for me haha).
Gordon seems to have swung back into things much easier than me as he can go back to sleep if he wakes up but me when i wake up i have to stay up.
We took some of the new things we are going to be selling soon to the shop yesterday ( and today) and have had a great response from every customer who has been in to visit us.
I will tell and show you more when my jetlag has stopped my head from aching but i just know you are going to love them too.
I have put all the other brand new spellbinders dies up on the web shop today for you to look at and you will find them under Nestabilities, Shapeabilities and Scrapabilities.
The Elusive Labels 10 is now up as it was being saved along with around 19 more new dies for the CHA show.
Harry is back home with us too and we got a fantastic welcome back from him. He hasnt left my side since yesterday and i want to say thank you to Michelle and her family for giving him such a great time. Also thanks for the Doggy Grooming set including clippers i am going to give him a real good haircut on Tuesday.
No pics today peeps as my heads all woozy but i will put some up on the next post.

I love the colours and the faded distressed edges and the extravagance all so scrummy
I would love this suitcase full of valentine ephemera.
I also loved this
And this too
After a few hours of travelling the antique stores we went and had something to eat and then came back to the hotel where we fell asleep for all those hours.
Today was the last day of the show and we went and finished our business and said our goodbyes to friends old and new.
Oh and look what i won in the Graphic 45 raffle.
We really do have some wonderful new products to entice you with and i am sure you will all be very very happy with our finds.
After the show finished we had to go and get another suitcase to bring some rather delicate and special samples we have borrowed back with us to the UK to display on our stand at the NEC Threads Trade Show and you will be amazed by these when you see them.
Im going to tease you all until we get back home and then i will tell you some of the products we have bought back with us.
Over the last couple of days i have managed to accumulate even more books and the latest Cloth Paper Scissors magazine of course, heres a quick pic of them.
If im not too jet lagged i will post on Friday evening when i get home, but in all honesty it will probably be Saturday when we are back in the shop.
We are both really missing Harry and cant wait to give him his pressies but i bet hes had such a fabulous time with Michelle and her family he probably wont want to come home.
Cant wait to see you all when we get back.
