August Classes - last spots

There's a few spots left this Wednesday 7.30pm or  Thursday 7.30pm if you'd like to catch a Top Note Christmas Card Class this month.  (Next week's date is booked out.)  Details here.

Last chance for an Avondale Heights class for a while.  September is launch month and October the diary is chockas so couldn't squeeze one in.  (CraftExpo and Hamilton Island trip - yippee!)

Rumpus Room News

And in news from our rumpus room (I did say it was a smorgasbord of bits and pieces didn't I - grin!) I thought I'd share a pic of what John and the kids have been up to while I've been working on the Helping Hudson project.

Hannah put in a request for a tree house. (Bit tricky when we don't have a tree!)  John thought it'd be fun to knock up a cubby with some wood and cardboard.  Here's what 'Project Cubby' has turned into ...


I think painting and decorating it is going to keep them amused for the next month!  

Have a fabulous week everyone.  Back soon with some cards to share.

Cheers, Sue 



Good thing you have a big rumpus room. The cubby will be lots of fun though.
