CHA NEWS!! everyone,

I hope this blog post is finding you all recouperating after the christmas…I know we are!  January is a catch up month for me!

I am also busy planning our Two day CHA release party in March, lot’s of exciting things happening, more info to follow over the next few weeks, Happy Days!!!.  This year, I will be concentrating on the display, the shop as well as demos/makes and takes.  We will have a classroom available for tutors who want to teach a class, so with that in mind I am sending out a call for teachers, so if you want to book the class room over the weekend, drop me an email 🙂

In anticipation of the event, I will share some of my CHA favourites here over the next few days. I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to see any of the new releases coming out this spring…some really gorgeous products and cool techniques!

So let’s start……….

Guest Blogger Mandy Sheridan Part 2


Hello lovely crafters, I am back with some photos of part two of my Prima doll stamp playing, this is her finished in my mixed media journal.

I have created a video on the process, but I am having some issues, my laptop can not seem to take the high quality video editing, so I am working on getting it sorted out…with the help of husband!

So once that is all done I will have the video posted here for you to watch.  In the meantime I will leave you with these pics, hope you like it and see you soon, Mandy xx.


A Big Thank You……

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU  to all you lovely crafty ladies who came to our CHA Party / Jamboree last Sunday.  I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did :-).  It was great to see so much creativity and happy cheer, a great start to an Irish Springtime lol!

The only thing is that i never took any photos :-(, so if anyone has some would love to see them.

We arrived back late yesterday evening, unpacked everything into the kitchen….agh! and then I went to a Zumba class in my local community hall (it’s only my second time going and boy am I feeling it today lol!)

I will be spending the rest of the week (while the little lad is either in playschool or bed), restocking and updating my website and finishing off a project or two.  A little birdy metioned something about ‘an unfinished project event’ which i think we can all find at least one project to bring along lol!

Happy Crafting and thanks again

New Art Journaling Class at CHA Jamboree :-)

Hi Everyone,

I have some good and bad news…..the bad news is that the Assemblage Clock for Karen’s class at our CHA Jamboree on the 3rd March won’t be here in time so I have to cancel the class… sorry!!

But the GOOD news is that we are replacing it with an Art Journaling class, Yippee!! 🙂

You will learn how to use paper, paint, gesso, inks, stamps and more to express your creativity (kit will include an Art Journal), just check out Karen’s journaling pages on her blog for an idea of wha you can do….

The new product has finally started to arrive too so I will have videos of the kits in the next few days, make sure to keep an eye out

Happy Crafting

Christmas Jamboree Kit Video’s!

Hi everyone, apologies for not blogging the last two weeks, still trying to re-organise after the show (catching a flu didn’t help, ugh!)

Anyway, Anne and I recently made two videos to talk through two of the kits available at this year’s Christmas jamboree (a crafting party for crafter’s yippee!).  Make sure you check out the videos HERE,

The other two kits are a Kaisercraft Advent Calender (you got to check out this you tube video by Leane , Aka Luvlee Scrappin. It’s one made up using the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet and it’s even set to it! )  the final kit is with Eve from Crafty Queens, and it’s for a gorgeous G45 mini album, brill!

Of course you don’t have to do a kit you can just come along on the day and play with your stash and join in the fun and crafty frolics.

You can find more details about the Christmas jamboree on our Christmas Jamboree page or you can call me on 087 9481196.

PRE-BOOKING IS ADVISABLE!!           Event tickets and kits can be booked here or if you would prefer to pay by cheque you can email me (Kate 🙂 ) at

Looking forward to seeing you on the 2nd..
