This is a chocolate fish and a buzz bar sitting on our bench with Ian's hand ready to grab - just for you Hilary. Childhood memories. Plus they are always on the counter at Fresh Provisions - I think they call that point of sale in the trade - or some sucker will not be able to resist us.
Well we haven't quite made it through the orders but at least I can see my way clear to Ian's desk. Lots of parcels have arrived this week so far - today were all the new Distress inkpads including a Rust and a pumice stone. Sadly they have to all go back for replacement (apart from the 2 I whipped out for myself) because the UTEE burst its bag and spread throughout the whole box. I know how annoying this is when something we send bursts open. I started cleaning each pad with a fine brush but even the one I took for myself had UTEE right into the pad so they are coming to collect and swap tomorrow or so.
Then we had a lovely heavy parcel full of 7 new Karantha stamps/moulding mats. These ones are titled Fat Sparrows. They are wonderful for rubbings, stamping and paper casting. Maybe I need to fit some sparrows into my work somewhere. Soon these things will get to the web but Ian's little pile of new goodies is a wee bit high right now - we had some lovely new Stuff arrive as well - restock and newbies - I wound them all during the rugby over Easter. And of course he has all the little Smooch spritzes staring at him as well.
I have noticed on the 1000 blog posting that there are 47 messages - 3 more before 9am Perth time and I will have 5 parcels of 10 goodies to give away to those people whose names are drawn out of one of Bruce's hats.
I did NOT getting any flowers stitched today. But I did do one of the pages for Carla's Drawing a day workshop done. Lots of fun it is. She has a super sense of humour.
