Its cold out side!

Hello every one!
 If its one thing i don't like it's feeling the cold, and it's certainly been cold the last few weeks.
So we have turned up the heat and there as been lots of knitting going off at the craft-box.
We have some talented knitters and here are a few bits and pieces that have been created.
This baby sleeping bag is one of my favourites,it's so cute! It also disconnects to make into a cape when the bag is no longer needed. The pattern is from berg-ere de France.

If you can remember earlier this year we had a new member at the craft-box and here she is modelling a two piece out fit, again from Berg-ere de France, they have some gorgeous kiddie patterns!
She also is wearing a pom pom hat and scarf very cute i must say. This pattern and wool is from designer yarns.


This one is for me!
 It's a beautiful soft scarf knitted with two colours and a little sparkle from Debbie bliss. Its even more gorgeous than it looks on the blog.

Going to be busy rest of today getting ready for the sale this weekend! Also finishing prepping for the last Molly bloom workshop for 2012 this Sunday!
As you can see i get all the dirty jobs! But after Clare has worked her magic it will have been worth while. x

If i don't get chance to blog again before Christmas i hope you all have a fab time!
Best wishes from the Craft-box. x

Long time!

Well, it a few weeks since i blogged, sorry!
There as been a lot going on down at the craft box the last few weeks. Christmas stock arriving every day and not enough hours in the day to get it on the shelves. You can always guarantee that the shop is full of customers when you are wanting to get organised. But as they say the customers always come first!
Its took me the last two days to unpack the box of lovely goodies from Tim holtz, it was like Christmas had come early. But lets not forget its creeping up fast.
Here are some of the latest products!
Tinsel twine and paper string from Tim holtz idea-ology range.

 Woodlands,custom fasterns,foliage fasterns,and this gorgeous mini lantern!

We also have Tims 12x12 paper stash collections
Holiday past and seasonal kraft resist.

Other goodies include 
The stampers anonymous christmas blue print rubber stamps and rubber stamps and bits and pieces from comso cricket!
The list goes on and on!!!

The workshops are coming to a end for this year only a few more left.
Michelle will be holding her  promarker class on saturday 27th October, and will be showing tips and techniques on how to colour your magnolia rubber stamps!
On the 11th November and 9th December we have Clare Rowland holding a full day workshop making stunning Christmas cards and projects using her latest collections of Molly Bloom rubber stamps.Places are limited and only a few places left. 

Julie will be holding a workshop tomorrow making three gorgeous projects and i will be trying my hardest to talk her into doing one more workshop before Christmas.
These are a few of the beautiful cards and projects she has made for our card classes I hope you like?

Will Someone please start selling TIME!

Its been a couple of weeks ago since i blogged. I just don't know where the time goes.
Any way now karen is back from her holidays i will try to blog more, but don't hold your breath lol.

We have had a new member join us at the craft box and she takes a lot of our time up, her name is Poppy and she will be attending all our knit and natter  classes. She will also showcase all the new garments that we knit!

We have lots of workshops coming up and the first christmas project will be tomorrow with Clare rowland.

Here is a few cards that have been made over the last few weeks. None of them Christmas. we will be starting Christmas soon but not that soon if i have any thing to do with it. lol

 The back ground on this card is done with a EK success paper punch, i think it's a really clever design.

This pink and white card is a back ground rubber stamp from hero arts. The back ground has been embossed in white and coloured in with copics.
