First up ... you need to know ... well ... to be fair ... you probably don't ... but I did!!! De Craftorij is pronounced De Craftory ... it is made up from Craft and Factory ... like Craft-Tory! Second up ... and it's highly likely that I am the only person on the planet that pronounced Ede ... Ede and it is in fact pronounced Ada! See not only am I having fun but Lia is doing her best to educate me as well! Get this ... I am fluent in Dutch greetings too ... Hello is Hallo!
Just a couple of quick demo tags to show you tonight ... and a few of the lovely crafters that I have met! As you can see ... we played with The Wendy Vecchi stamps and oodles of Ranger goodies with Lord Tim of Holtz stamps ... you know Tim ... the man that can land a Jumbo Jet on the top of a playing card while performing Ice Sculpture to music in the Sahara desert with just a charm clip and an Adornment!
The atmosphere in Lia's shop is very laid back ... everyone either shops or just comes in for coffee ... from Lia's very posh coffee machine ... even the husbands come in and sit and read their newspapers ... a real family affair ... so no complaints at all!
Apart from a whole bag incident ... it pains me to speak of it really ... but I have the BEST handbag ever ... it has history and provenance ... a real conversation piece ... I LOVE it ... maybe a bit more than is entirely healthy ... but hey ... it's my bag! Busy working away I was ... went to said bag and I could n't pick it up ... the glorious bag charm which displayed the handcrafted princess cut ten carat diamond was right under the table leg ... said table loaded with stash ... so really really reeeeeally heavy and I could n't lift it. Joan to the rescue ... bag ... well frankly it was tainted and ruined ...
Does a certain Miss Anneliese Bates look at all sad or sorry that she picked the entire table up and dropped it on my bag???? ... seriously she said she was sorry ... but look at the pictorial evidence and you decide!
I am off to lay on the floor outside her room and snore ... but that's a whole 'nother story!
Have a good weekend!
