I havent’ posted for a while as I’ve been absolutely stacked out with various projects and stuff going on, but as the cat got me up at the crack of dawn I’ve managed to grab a half hour to update the ol’ blog this morning!!   As many of you will know, we have decided to close our York b&m shop.  A tough decision to make, but going forward we want to take a slightly different direction following the huge success of Freddies Friends.  Starting in September you will be able to see us at various shows around the UK, including Hobbycrafts at the NEC in November which is very exciting for us! Obviously we will still be trading online and who knows, maybe 2009 will see us in another b&m shop in a different location!! So watch this space!

In the meantime, it’s a very, very busy period for us and me in particular! We’ve just launched my brand new Crimbo range of Freddies Friends decoupage and in just 3 days since the launch it’s flying out! I think we’re going to struggle to keep this one in stock for Christmas.  I launched FF as I believe there’s a gap in the decoupage market for a younger more modern twist to decoupage – and I’ve also added a touch of good old British humour as well!  I only wish there were more British designed products on the market so we don’t have to make do!  But it seems you all agree with us and we’ve had so many comments from people who don’t like decoupage normally but are loving FF and are having a go, so it seems we achieved our objectives!   We have lots of fab plans for Freddies Friends so again, 2009 will be very exciting in terms of developing the range further and of course, adding additional ones too!!  Below are some of the sample cards so I hope you all love them, they really make us chuckle…
