Computer Woes!

Well the news wasn't good today when I was told that the Particraft computer was terminal, no possibility of resurection! The message wasn't kidding when it said hard drive failure was imminent!  So, here's the thing, I am going to the wholesale Crafts show in California later this week so the computer won't be sorted for at least a week's time.  Please do not send any emails to Particraft as I do not know if they will be retrievable before we get a new computer set up.  If you do need to contact us, please phone the Particraft number which is 01536 514770.  Karen Lines will be handling all the calls while I am away (which will be two weeks).

Since I am heading over to the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) show in Anaheim, California, I am going to try to take some pics and post them on my blog (Don't be jealous though, it is supposed to pour rain for a solid week, just my luck!).  But, just to let you know a few of the things that I have been told about already, Ranger has just released 12 new Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours that they will be taking orders for at the show.  We will have them for sale as soon as they can be shipped over.  Tim Holtz has also added new items to his Idealogy Range that we will be stocking.  Spellbinders, the company that brings us the wonderful Nestibility Dies are also expanding their line and we will be stocking those new dies as well.  I plan to have a good look at everything that is being shown so who knows what new crafting ideas I might stumble across!
All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
I can feel my bank account groaning about all the new items I am going to have to buy. New distress inks, yipee, I will obviously NEED all of those! Your visit to America sounds exciting, good job I'm not coming as my bank manager would not like it! Have a lovely time and I hope you will still manage to get a little hands on crafting done.
Bon Voyage
Kate

Hi Sue, Oh how i'm jealous of your trip, it's my biggest want to go to California and not come back before seeing the golden gate bridge.If there's any room in your suitcase,i'm available. All i have to offer in exchange is a Cornish cream tea, ok maybe not. Anyhow looking forward to the new distress inks, and any other goodies you manage to find. Have a safe trip. Kath x
