Happy Christmas

Just a quick post to wish all our customers and friends a very  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It's been a year of contrasts, highs and lows, good and bad, so with the new year rapidly approaching  here's hoping for a nice even ride for all of us in the coming year.

I'd like to thank every one for their support and encouragement since we launched the business and I hope to see you at our shows or in class in the new year. We couldn't have done it with out you.
Thanks and best wishes
Karen & Niki

Coughing Christmas & Craft Shows

I have to apologise for being a little quiet lately, well, quiet online that is, I'm pretty sure the neighbours are getting up a collection to buy me an industrial sized vat of of cough Syrup. I've succumbed to the dreaded bug that's going round and have spent the last 7 days coughing around the clock.  I have found I definitely need more than an hours sleep a night to function. After 7 nights of back to back Dog The bounty Hunter and those fly on the wall police documentaries, I finally nerved up, tissued up and ventured out to Asda today as my fish finger supply had dried up.

I have added the dates of the first 3 craft shows we are exhibiting at on the events page of the website and I have also created an events page on the facebook page, just look for the smaller picture of us on the header and it will list the first of the shows. I had hoped by know to have tidied the devastation I have wrought in the dining room with all my craft tools and papers and projects from classes that never seem to get put away before I add another layer on top but that has gone the way of all good intentions and I've not done any more of my online classes yet, although I did get 100% for my second effort. I've really got to get myself together now and get on with it.

How close are you all to being ready for Christmas, are you super efficient and everything's done or are you like me and hope if you don't think about it, it might all go away?

The website has landed

Drum roll please, not to mention a bottle of nail repair, ( not that I have a lot of nails left,) the new website is up and open for business. The address is the same; www.aciddropsandwhatnots.co.uk (you may have to refresh our browser if you have visited lately) but we have a whole new look. You can now purchase and pay for your goods with either PayPal, (account not needed), or by using Actinic payments our secure level 1 PCI DSS payment gateway. Please have a look around, leave a message in the guest book, or email me to let me know your thoughts, could you see the products clearly? Were they easy to find? What would you like to see included on the site, or hopefully, that you like the new look. Be gentle on me and pass the nailoid.

Last class before Christmas

Nothing brings home just how close Christmas is, like writing the title of this post and please don't anyone tell me how many more shopping days there are until Christmas or I just might cry. I haven't got anything done on the present front, or at least I only have 1 present bought and I got that in April.

But back to business, Said last class takes place on Wednesday the 5th of December at 7pm in The Old Fire Station in Hockley, Essex. It is a fully circular 3D Christmas Tree Star Book Ornament that would look great as a table centre piece for your festive table or a great gift for those nearest and dearest. If you would like to come along for an evening of craft, chat and as it's Christmas, food, or would like more details, just drop me an email at karenosborne99@gmail.com.

The switch over of the website has taken place and we're just waiting for it to be recognised on the servers or whatever it is the world wide web uses for it to be fully accessible, it takes about 48 to 72 hours, I'm running out of fingernails.
