SNEAK PEEKS....

Here you go... a few little tasters of what I'm doing on QVC this Wednesday. There's an outlet (time to grab a bargain) at 10am and then on again at 2pm with LOTS of New products. Prepping has been a right pleasure as everything is yummy :) :) 




I've tried to do as many demos as possible, but remember the outlet hour (10am) is fast and furious, I've got a mix of scrapbooking, cardmaking and mini albums to show, it's all been a bit rushed, but hey ho i've done my best :) :) hope you enjoy it !!!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES....

WOW.... so there we were on the little beach at Marina Del Ray soaking up the rays before we flew home.


Then after a 10 hour flight this is how we're greeted....


Seriously !!!!! Where's the sunshine LOL

Actually in reality I LOVE snow, I don't think there's anymore beautiful a scene, but I am aware of the problems it causes, one of them being that we had to close the shop as there was no way my mum was driving in it, (I'm sure all you lovely people understand that) and as you could see I was in California (sorry about that) but hopefully we'll be back open on Tuesday.... But always remember "Even when we're closed...we're always open www.sugarandspicecrafts.co.uk"
Keep warm

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT.....

FOOD !!!!!! Obviously, I think the physiology is setting in, as I'm going on a diet when I get back, so I think I'm harvesting as much food as I can LOL !!!

So yesterday we went on a road trip


You can't possibly spend ALL day AND night in the casinos, well you could if you had an abundance of $$$$$ but we don't, so we didn't :) :) we went on the search for some moustache Washi tape for Nina, but sadly we couldn't find any :( :( sorry Nina !!
So, you know that feeling when you're on a mission and it's just not working out, what do you do ? You go to the Bellagio for a buffet.


Ricky's just about to tuck into a plate of crab legs, personally, I think they're yucky, smelly and messy, but hey, they're obviously VERY popular......


Now this is more my thing :) :) :) I would like to point out they were all mini, I didn't eat 5 full size desserts, honest LOL !!
Hope you're all keeping warm

AND THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.....AGAIN !!!

I say again as I've just wrote this blog and then lost the whole thing....arrrrghhh.... And .... Relax..

So, before leaving the show we nipped over to see the lovely Emily from Maya Road. Their NEW stash is FAB.


Can you see my little food baby roll there...it's hard not too...well I blame Ruby Rocket entirely, you see the lovely Warren bought us over some of these little babies...


Thanks guys they were delicious :) :)

We the. Got on the road to Vegas (we love a road trip) check out these tyres, seriously they must have been about 12ft across


We're incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful friends over here and one of those special people is Jerry (our very own Tear Mender King), it just so happened we had one night in vegas together, he took us to an amazing restaurant last night called Fogo de Chao, it's a Brazillian steak house and oh my, what an experience !!


It was absolutely divine, best experience yet.... Thanks Jerry, we love you !!


As we said our goodbyes I got a quick pic of the strip before we put our heads down for the night.


And now we're already to hit the town again :)

CHEESECAKE ???

As many of you know by now, it's compulsory to add photos of food to the blog when I'm away....and I don't want to disappoint....so this ones for all you food lovers out there



The Red Velvet Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory...obviously, it would have been rude not to !!



Making our way through it.....



Nearly there......

Actually we were wimps and didn't even finish it, that was maybe due to the MAHOOSIVE portion of pasta we'd had just before...whoops !!!

Anyhoos, it's Saturday so that means CHA opens its doors today. I'm all ready, starting off with the filming, then teaching then presenting (bites nails nervously) .

Be back soon with some picci's
