ANOTHER SHOW....





Or TWO... actually !!
I'm back on QVC on Wednesday at 3pm and 6pm with some rather scrumptious goodies, even if I say so myself.
Above are a few sneeks of whats going to be on your screens...
It's been a bit of a crazy week and I'm sorry I haven't been in the shop as much, I promise I've not been skiving, (probably spelt that wrong) !!! I've been working REALLY HARD.... Honest !!! and it's all in the name of craft.
We're just designing more classes for you, so keep an eye out for the newsletter.
Anyhoo's this is just a quickie, so hope you can tune in :)

A FEW SNEAK PEEKS.......

Just wanted to share a few sneaky pics of what's coming up on QVC on Tuesday at 2 - 4 pm.
It's a two hour show all about Christmas, and this has been brilliant for me, as those that know me, know I'm the one in the shop on the 23rd December, frantically knocking up Christmas cards for the neighbours and family. I'm always soooo behind, well..... I'm not now LOL !!!


It seems gift cards are so popular now, probably because everyone has everything!!! So I'm going to show you how to make a great little gift card holder.



Everybody needs a Christmas tree at Christmas, and this Tuesday you can get some gorgeous stash to make one or two or three...



Here's a sneak of a quick and simple layout from the same stash.



Oh the joys of stamping !!!



All I'm going to say about this one is Mmmmmmm, YUMMY !!!



And last but not least, Christmas stash isn't just for Christmas .....

So I hope you can join me between 2 & 4 pm on Tuesday, then all your mojo will be flowing, whizz off to your craft rooms, create something amazing, then come back between 6 & 8pm and join Amy for her show, I can tell you we only have one product the same between us, so she'll have lots of different goodies for you.

See you Tuesday

USTREAM UPDATE .....QVC NEWS

Yes, I'm still going ahead with it..... I'm really looking forward to it, should be fun.
I've been having a little play with it today and realised that I'd forgotten a couple of things to tell you.
You can check out the post below to get the majority of the details, but i forgot to say that once you've registered, just go to the search bar, near the top, and type in sugarandspicecrafts and then you'll be on my channel.
Also, if you wanted to join in the card making with me I've done a list of materials, again in the post below, but I forgot to say that you'll also
Need a piece of plain card stock, I've chose mine to match my card blank.
Just to explain Ustream in brief, it's a bit like me doing a You Tube video, but it's LIVE !!! AND..... If you sign in you can chat to me via typing
You're message/comment, I get to read them and answer live, be aware that anyone else in the "chat room " can read your message !!!

QVC.... Since Dawn's departure I've had so many messages/e mails asking me if I'm taking her place, well the answer in short is......... NO !!!
I can confirm that I signed a contract over a month ago now and yes I will be doing lots more shows, in fact I'm next on with Amy (although not together, but that could be fun) on Tuesday 24th May, Amy's doing the 2-4pm show and I'm doing the 6-8pm show, I'm loving it as it Christmas crafting and I just LOVE Christmas !!!! I can also confirm that there's some really exciting changes happening there along with some really talented new peeps coming in.
So, hope to see/speak to you tomorrow night, oh and I'll apologise now as I'm bound to mess up somewhere !!!
