Giveaway Winner April 2017

morning everyone, it's a damp and chilly Bank Holiday Monday here.  I hope the sun's shining where you are.  
I can't believe its May 1st - where has April gone.  I've not done any crafting this week but have decluttered the house. Harry announced he'd be home from Uni in three weeks (year 1 completed, can you believe it!) and looking round here I wondered where he, and all his belongings were going to go.  So out came the black bags and after numerous trips to the tip and charity shops there's space for him to come home whop whop!  
Thank you to everyone who left a comment on the April giveaway post.  I loved reading them as always.  Random.org chose comment no 118 as our winner this month.

Huge congrats Ann, please mail me your contact details and address so I can get your goodies off in the post to you. 
Following the sneak peeks of the new mid season releases from Graphic 45 last week we are taking pre orders for the new collections over on the website.  They should be here in the UK from mid May. 
Master Detective has a Sherlock Holmes and Halloween twist and French Country is back as a Deluxe Collectors Edition.  Here's a little album I made from the original release;

Craft Fair - National Motor Cycle Museum 6th May 
If you're planning on visiting the Craft Fair at the Motor Cycle Museum come along and visit my stand at the Motor Cycle Museum on 6th May.  It's the first time I've taken my boutique shop to the show and am really looking forward to seeing everyone there.  I'll be running demos all day so do call by and say hi. 
I've got samples to update today so I'd better get a wiggle on. Have a great day and thanks for calling by.  Our May giveaway will be launched here later this week so do call back again then. 


  1. Good afternoon Clare, My OH are I are just back from a shopping spree (it's my Birthday today) and obviously your blog was my first port of call! I know what you mean about time flying by these days but once Harry's back it'll be as if he'd never been away. I have loved the sneak peeks of the new Master Detective collection and will definitely be adding that to my list of must-haves. Congratulations to Ann (I am sooo jealous) but who knows maybe next time round I might be lucky! Take care.

    1. Happy Birthday Congratulations to you Margaret, I hope you got something nice on your shopping spree haha.
      Lots of love from Patricia xx

  2. Hi Clare, I could do with you de-cluttering my house haha, both myself and my hubby are hoarders of stuff so there's no hope for us haha. Brilliant that Harry will have somewhere to 'hang his hat' so to speak haha. I can't believe where this 'time' is going, it is so scary, it only seems like yesterday that H was going off to Uni.
    I've just finished helping my hubby start off his first home brew, it's taken hours and hours, what with the sterilising of everything to start and then all the boiling of water etc, now it is sitting in 'pride of place' in the corner of the kitchen 'doing it's thing' !! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he will like the taste of it when it's ready for drinking hahaha.
    I'm off to finish off 2 cards for my Brother in Law and my Friend for their next Monday's Birthdays.
    I will be back in a while to watch your video, I am loving the look of the Master Detective collection.
    Congratulations of Ann, enjoy your goodies !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  3. Clare, good to see you back on here!!! I loved French Country and can't wait for the re-release of it. I will definitely be buying that collection again!!Congrats to the lucky winner of your give away and yes I am jealous!!! Take care, catch up soon.
