Lucky lucky girls and we will be looking out to see what you make with your new stamps.
Challenge 7 is up over at the SUGAR BOWL, our lovely sweeties have made beautiful cards to inspire you to pick up you rubber and stamp. With great prizes, it is one of the best
challenge blogs about if not the best.*trumpet blowing* Jump over and join in, you will be made very welcome.
How many of you are waiting?
Hands up so I can count :)
There have been a few sell outs with the March releases and we are re stocking those, I really must have more confidence in our range and order bigger quantities.
Catch you all later with a candy give away, hope you have a gorjuss day where ever you are.
I have some great new stamps from Mary Hall to package tomorrow
and the first artwork from Diane has arrived, it's exciting times.
Single girls go live on Thursday, not sure if a news letter is going out but I thought I would just tell you again here.
There was a box of stamps from The Greeting Farm arrive at FK today and its strange having new stamps from another company about the store, I almost pocketed one for myself but then again I have loads of our own stamps to play with if I had a minuet. Time, where can I find more time?
The main part of our fund raising will be done with a selection of specially designed limited edition stamps donated by our illustrators and maybe by you too :)
Today I am asking if you would like to design a stamp for this cause. There is no brief other than it needs to be original work. If this is something that you feel you would like to support, please send a 300 dpi jpeg of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org. (this will not be used without your permission) All artists will be emailed direct and we can take it from there.
I know that this fundraiser will only be small in the grand scheme of things but in an industry full of women, mothers, daughter, wife's and sisters, I choose to do what I can no matter how small to help the cause, and I know that with your help, this will be a great bonding of women with the same aim and goal. It's a girl thing, but men are invited to send in designs too.
Take care and believe that as we approach Mothering Sunday here in the UK, that one day there will be a cure and for all the Mothers and Daughters in the world it will be one step nearer that day.
Tiets made this card "you make my heart happy" and I also feel the same when I see cards that you have made with SN stamps. With Easter around the corner, its a hard choice to make, which Sugar Nellie stamp to use on your cards. Which one is your favourite?
Was it you?
Now I know that not all Sugar Nellie customers blog or follow blogs but we sent out a fair few prizes and its good to hear back from the winner. Enjoy the candy, its fat free :)
Still catching up in the House of Sugar, all Funky Kits orders will hopefully be dispatched within the next 24 hrs, all up to date. Then its back to cutting rubber for top ups of sell out lines and wholesale orders.
There must be lots of new nellies arriving all over the world, it will be great to see your creations. Marlene has been busy with Home Grown Boys, pop over and see for yourself why Marlene is on the SN DT, she is amazing.
As it the very talented Tiets, the post just takes longer to get to Netherlands and Tiets does not have her stamps yet. Soon, very soon they will arrive in Holland.
I also received a parcel of DT cards from Tiets today, thank you so much, your work takes pride of place in the store where we show off all your work along side other DT cards and creations.
That's all from me tonight, we will be getting ready to launch single girls soon, these will be going to Funkykits for the next 8 weeks and then maybe they will turn up in your local stamp shop. We just need time to clear the tables and sweep the floor.
I thought I would tease you a little with some of the new girlie's we coming soon to the House Of Sugar. These darlings are especially home grown and she is looking for a name, we have Nellie, Maggie, Lola, Annie, Daisy, Claudia and Honey. What shall we call our new range of cute country girls?
We received a great package of DT work from Marlene, huge thanks, stunning work again :)
I am just finishing off the order of single gorjuss girls for Funkykits, I hope we have enough? So much rubber to come this week I might not be around much.
I will be back later with another few peeks of different ranges but first I have to water mark them.
But stop by these two challenge blogs and see fantastic cards and some gorjuss ones.
Also take a minuet to visit Dawn who has a variety of sweet cards on her blog
I don't like to lift any pictures from other blogs unless they are on the DT and it is part of their work for SN. I would rather you went and had a look at these sites for yourselves, enjoy the journey in blog land, you have no idea where it will lead you too.
Isn't she a little darling, what pretty colours Marlene has used here on one of the soon to be released stamps we have in hiding from Elisabeth Bell. She is from our collection named Baskets & Butterflies, due to be released early April but may have to be brought forward due to the shear amount of new stamps we have to release this side of the summer. Pretty pink and peppermint green are such sugary sweet candy colours, Marlene has beautifully matched them to this stamp called Windswept.
Its hard to imagine that soon I will have to think about Christmas. If I have the illustrators start now, final artwork to the factory and then send stamps to designers to make sample for magazine deadlines, I will have to be thinking about that very soon! We have some stunning work coming to you in a variety of UK magazines, these project were done many months before you see them and are a total secret until in print. I have been lucky to have a great selection of girls do project either for Sugar Nellie or commissioned by the mags and choose to use SN, all of which we are very great full.
I am also working on a party to release the second set of Gorjuss stamps, a little different this time with no peeks, you will see the DT samples at the same time as you may order, but only if you want to.
Also our fundraiser for the summer, It's a girl thing. And many more promotions and releases, all of which are totally sweet and super cute. Some surprised too for Sugar Nellie fans, a slight move away from cute and trying something a little different which to me is wacky and totally suited for the purpose intended. :) ha ha ha
Its easy to see why buying more costs less in the long run, a woman is good at crunching numbers and justifying spending one way or another. Buying the sweetest sugar nellie collection and saving gives you the better deal, so it does :) One new stamp lasts a lot longer than embellishments, one new stamp may inspire you to use some of that yummy papers you have been saving, all of which you paid for long ago. Which ever way you look at it, women are better at maths, better at budgeting and saving for something they really really want.
I am currently working on the maths for a fundraiser we are going to be doing this year. More on that later but lets just say its going to be a lot of fun and "It's a girl thing".
The steam is coming from the rubber factory, I am sure it is even if it is too far away to see it, I know how much rubber is on its way in the next few weeks and because of that I will not have the time to go to Glasgow this week to meet a few sugar babes again. Sugar Nellie stamps will be on the Imagination stand and be sure to stop by and say hello to Harvey and Sue. Holding down two jobs, Tracys and my own, takes all the hours in the day, sorry girls but I am sure you will have lots of shopping fun without me :)
It has caused a bit of a stir in the house of sugar these gorjuss girls, it has become apparent that a lot of stampers sat on the fence when pre orders were available and are now kicking themselves when they see the amazing cards made with these stamps designed by Suzanne Woolcott for Sugar Nellie. There were a few lucky girls who were quick off the mark to snap up the few extra kits that Funkykits had left. Now FK are totally sold out , it is hard to have to wait for the end of the month for the single girls but Katie are packing them ready for FK.
So what about the second set, I think that this set will be AMAZING and once you see the beautiful designs that Suzanne has done there will be no hesitating over that pre order button.
March is going to be a bumper month here at the HOUSE OF SUGAR. I am having a hard time keeping track of all the new stamps due in and the rubber factory are working their way through our orders.
And remember you asked for stamps for older boys................almost there :)
As the new Leanne Ellis stamps are now available over at Funkykits, I thought that this one from Marlene was the pick of the day, reminds me of all you girls sitting waiting for the postman to bring you some sugar!LOL
There is a lot going on over in the sugar bowl , our challenge blog run by Gayle and her "sweeties"
These girls do a wonderful job and there love of stamping is amazing, I thank them all for their support they are indeed, Sweeties.
The Christmas challenge might have been a hard one at first but hey, its a challenge and with under 20 entries so far there is a good chance of winning a great prize, randomly picked for fairness. http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com
Enjoy your Sunday girls and I will be watching out for your creations, take care.
