Our Birthday Weekend

Good Morning my lovely crafty Friends,

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.
Today I have some fabulous news and some sad news.
Firstly the sad news. Unfortunately I am having to step down from the Allsorts Challenge Team as other things have become more pressing.  I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the team for over 4 years and I have seen some fabulous work from both members of my team and also from the lovely crafters taking part in the Challenge each week. This has not been an easy decision but one I must take.
So now for the fabulous news! Let's Create has been nominated for the Best Independent Craft shop in the Midlands area! we are soooooo pleased and can not thank whoever nominated us for this enough.
Voting starts during September and so we will have everything crossed!!
 I have some lovely photographs from our birthday weekend and would love to share them with you.
It was a tremendous success and so many of our lovely customers came along to celebrate thankyou to everyone that came along to the demo day and the workshop.


As you can see a brilliant day had by all! 
I will still be posting on my blog on a Saturday morning so hope that you can still pop in to say hello and see what we have been getting up to!.
We have a children's birthday party at the shop today 10 10 year olds so lots of messy play ahead!
Have a fabulous weekend whatever you are planning and see you soon,
bye for now
