2023 already?

Amazing isn’t it? 2023 has started, and we are 1/12th of the way through it.

Yvonne and I are sitting at the shop today (Australia Day) doing a bit more for our retreat in April at Bonville, near Coffs Harbour. Of course, we are also doing some playing to create exciting things for classes and kits for everyone.

The last week of December didn’t really feel like Christmas, that is until the local grandkids got going, that was AWESOME! Then we had the Darwin family for a week, so we felt so loved, as well as tired and lonely when they went back!

Creative kids vouchers, as well as Back to School vouchers are available from Service NSW for our NSW people who can get into the shop, if you have friends or family with school-age kids let them know we can provide art and craft classes and products.

Let’s Craft

Every Friday we gather to play and create. Cost is free (gold or silver coin donation to honesty box requested)

Whether you make cards, scrapbook, do diamond art, make jewellery or make paper models, you are welcome to come and share your time with others in our air-conditioned area. Sometimes it is nice to just sit with others and create or finish that project.

Scrap ‘n’ Chat

Scrap ‘n’ Chat is for you to pop on into our Air-conditioned shop to sit and relax with others to complete your scrapbooking projects.

If you work, we are open until 9pm so you can head on in from 6pm.

Of course, if you are a card maker or other crafter, you are welcome, it is just a fun night together!
